Blame it on our girl power predilection, but we’ve always had an interest in all-female crews, whether it’s Grease’s Pink Ladies or the witchy babes in The Craft. So naturally, when it came to a real-life band of femmes in our own neighborhood, we certainly took notice. We’re not quite sure when we started following this particular lady squad—it might have started with our Stone Cold Fox obsession (and this top specifically) or the fact that one of the core members, Amanda Thomas of the successful jewelry line Luv AJ, is a former Who What Wear intern. Regardless, there’s no denying their inspiring entrepreneurial drive (most of the girls have founded their own fashion companies), appreciation of a good time, and general badass spirit.

“I just purchased a little dainty nude heel, which I’m excited to wear with AGAIN’s S/S 15 collection. I know that means more pedicures, so I am not sure what one I’m more excited about!” — Amber Kekich, AGAIN Collection designer and owner
AGAIN Cherry Silk Crop Top ($190)
“I would say my absolute favorite summer accessory is my Luv Aj Cross Hoops. They’re one part pirate, one part gypsy, and just badass. Every time I wear them, I get tons of compliments. I haven’t taken them off—I even wear them to SoulCycle, no joke!” — Amanda Thomas, Luv AJ designer and owner
Luv AJ The Cross Hoops ($60)
“There are two pieces from Trois that will be in rotation for my wardrobe this summer. First off, the Latetia dress because it is a dream to wear. It's flowy and will not stick to your body in the heat, and it’s perfect to go from brunch to the beach or wherever the rosé is. We are big rosé fans, specifically Whispering Angel, and that will be our drink all summer. We were all in Palm Springs a couple months ago for Ashley’s bachelorette party, and that was all we drank. My second pick would be the Esther top because it goes with anything from shorts and jeans to skirts and bikini bottoms!” — Jennifer Humphrey, Trois founder and designer, model, and blogger
Trois Latetia Mid-Length Dress ($260)
“After taking weekly trips to Barneys for the past two months, I finally bit the bullet and bought the Céline Cowboy Buckle sandals. I might name them. I’m also definitely wearing my Private Party 'With My Woes' tee the entire summer.” — Jessica Currie, Private Party co-founder and photo shoot producer
Céline Boxy Flat Cowboy Buckle Sandals ($1050)
“I’m so excited to wear the new Stone Cold Fox Brooks gown and the Radical blouse with the matching Grom bloomers. Our new summer collection is everything you want to wear. I also just got some new Gianvito Rossi python boots I can't wait to wear, and I also love my new YSL platforms. My style is to mix vintage pieces with snazzy shoes, and a vintage pair of overalls with those platforms will be so fun in the summer.” — Cydney Morris, Stone Cold Fox designer and co-owner, and blogger
“There are two things I'm stoked to wear this summer: My red Saint Laurent heels cause they're beautiful, comfortable—I wore them for my wedding in Mexico!—and different from my all-black wardrobe. Also, the Essence Silk Veil Gathered dress by Zimmermann. I'm digging the sheer look right now with colored underpinnings.” — Ashley Nevah Harpster, stylist and model at Heist
Zimmermann Essence Silk Veil Gather Dress ($550)
Saint Laurent Classic Jane Ankle Strap Sandals ($795)
Matisse x Kate Bosworth Charlotte Boots ($482)
