Fashion is back, friends. It’s been fun wearing sweatpants and slippers over the past year. But with the summer calendar filling up with events and restaurants back at full capacity, it’s time to stash the pajamas.

Traveling safely is finally possible again, and there’s so much to see and explore just a short drive from home, too. Dozens of new restaurants have opened up over the past several months, so the staff of our sister publication 225 headed to two for this month’s style shoot: Sweet Society, where you can try Thai tea or Japanese-style taiyaki ice cream served in a fish-shaped cone; and Boru, the restaurant next door known for comforting bowls of scratch-made ramen noodles.

But what to wear for this new season of back-to-everything? Easy. The brighter and bolder, the better. If you’re interested in what’s trending at Baton Rouge boutiques, you’ll find patterned sets that are like wearable art, sassy mini skirts and dresses, and details like puff sleeves and unexpected cut-outs.
