Ms. Maxi

Cocktail dresses are a wardrobe essential, definitely, but life does throw us fashion curve balls. The scenario: Your friend’s birthday party. Cake. Drinks. And a sea of predictable knee-length dresses. How’s a girl supposed to stand out?

When a day or cocktail piece won’t cut it, the maxi dress is a super-cute, trend-smart alternative. Dress a solid maxi up for an evening event or wear a striped one for a low-key-chic day of shopping and lunch. With so many styles and colors, it’s a breeze to find the maxi that fits your needs and makes you shine.

Summer’s really starting to heat up, and we’re ready for it with hot July accessories. This month we’re literally dripping in gold—necklaces, bangles, earrings and clutches—statements designed to add shine to every look. Suggestion: An all-white outfit, decorated with the below, ideally worn while enjoying a frosty piña colada on the edge of an infinity pool.

Our advice: Make sure to check “plus one” on that reply—you’re going to want some arm candy. You’re going to knock his socks off.
