Sick of scouring the internet for the perfect length jean shorts or cool sandals that won't destroy your arches? We have an in-house stylist to solve everyone's problems.

Even people who look at clothes all day for a living (hi, it's us, the People StyleWatch team) can find themselves stumped when it comes to summer fashion. It can feel impossible to blend being on-trend with navigating all the sartorial challenges the season presents — whether that's finding full-coverage fashion that is still cool (literally and figuratively) or getting enough support when everything from shoes to swimwear gets skimpier.

Luckily, we have stylist and fashion pro Vanessa Powell on hand to answer all the questions that have been haunting us all spring long.

Here are a few product recommendations to streamline your shore prep.
