The question of whether you dress for men (implication: sexy) or women (implication: cool) is admittedly a bit out of the Stone Ages, but the other day the query reared its old-timey head in our office anew. The context was simple: when prepping an outfit for a hot summer evening, do you look for something that reveals a little skin, perhaps, or opt for something more directional?
Without a doubt, summer is the season of the dress—and we’ve identified three key styles you need to update your warm-weather repertoire now: the midi dress, the fit and flare frock, and the classic shift. Whether you’re in the market for a ladylike look or in the mood for minimalism, one of these styles will satisfy your sensibilities.
As pleasing as it is to see an overall outfit, it’s the details that add up to a cohesive—and chic—whole. So it’s easy to see why stacked bracelets have had such sartorial staying power over the past few years. This trend showcases your personal sensibilities and adds color, dimension, and intrigue to the most basic look.
A versatile square scarf lends itself to a myriad of stylish uses, but one of our favorites is tying it up into a cute head scarf, especially for summer. The good news? It’s really easy. Even better news? We’re giving you an instructional guide, featuring our own Associate Beauty Editor Lexy Lebsack, on how to tie a head scarf so you can recreate this look at home.
