From the beach to the cocktail party
A mini dress to transform into a pareo, a boho-chic maxi dress and an asymmetrical dress
The days are getting hotter and warmer. If you are planning a beach vacation or have been invited to a poolside party, get a lightweight mini dress that you can wear easily in various ways, including as a cover-up. For a relaxed beach look, pair a mini dress by Isabel Marant Étoile you hate Stella McCartney to a beaded straw bag, a wide-brimmed visor and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses. Highlight the waist with a belt and complete the outfit with a pair of slave sandals.
If you don’t like uncovering your legs and are looking for something extremely comfortable, go for a maxi dress with a bohemian flavor, ace in the hole for souvenir photos. Long, light, fluid and not very structured, oversized dresses are indispensable in the summer wardrobe and are the most suitable for the hottest days: they are simple to wear and dress from head to toe! Pair them with a pair of flat sandals or a pair of sneakers and embellish the look with some gypsy-style jewelry and a silk scarf to use as a headdress. Choose shades that reflect the colors of nature, from coral to lemon yellow, from forest green to powder pink, taking inspiration from the super sexy models of Jacquemus and from crochet dresses of Bottega Veneta.
Cocktail party on the horizon? Run to get the chicest dress you have in your closet! To break the mold and make an alternative choice to rather traditional classic midi dresses, experiment with a dress with an asymmetrical cut, perhaps one shoulder, to have fun with different and intriguing lengths. With overlapping panels and irregular necklines, the asymmetrical dresses create an unexpected silhouette. Choose the perfect model for you from the collections of Joseph of Morabito is The Attic.
Ceremonies, weddings and special occasions
An off-the-shoulder dress and a dress with bright patterns
The wedding day is celebrated with quality food and wine, music and lots of smiles, but deciding what to wear, if we are among the guests, is not always so simple. Usually, an elegant dress code is required at traditional weddings. That’s why a strapless dress or a dress that leaves the shoulders uncovered it is a très chic solution in these cases. Complete the outfit with a pair of high heels or a pair of wedges, depending on the time and place, a clutch bag studded with crystals or beads and some simple jewelry. Take note of the latest collections of Max Mara, Gabriela Hearst is Self-Portrait.
If you like colors and patterns, opt for one instead fancy dress, less rigorous than solid color models. Long, midi and mini, A-line or enveloping in stretch fabrics, with cap sleeves, sleeveless or balloon sleeves: the printed dresses are declined in classic versions and in experimental models. Pair them with a pair of ballet flats for the day or a pair of ankle boots to tone down the romantic tones of the look. At the next ceremony, wear the colors of the new season with the collections of Gucci, Johanna Ortiz is Zimmermann.
Between office and appointments in the city center
A chemisier and a sleeveless dress for maximum versatility
Do you have to go back to the office after a year spent in smart working? Don’t panic! Play it safe with a shirt dress, practical and light, to relive the comfort of loungewear even at your old desk. Long to the feet or in a longuette version, the chemisier adapts to every silhouette of the female body. Wearable as a tunic by buttoning it entirely, or open over a top and a pair of jeans, on cold days it lends itself well to being worn under a more formal sweater or blazer. Upgrade your wardrobe with sophisticated shirtdresses by Alexandre Vauthier, or dare with the patchwork shirt dress with multicolor prints by Dolce & Gabbana.
And if you’re planning a downtown shopping session after work, pull a sleeveless dress out of the closet. Ideal for any activity, from errands to aperitif breaks, this model leaves maximum freedom of movement. Discover the sustainable innovations that Kenzo has designed in collaboration with the WWF, or choose a short patterned or total white dress by Prada; combine it with a jacket tied at the waist, a pair of canvas sneakers and a shopping bag to have everything you need close at hand. Et voila!
