Casual Backyard Party: Jeans + Statement Top
Keep it casual yet chic in a no-fail, always-on-point combination: great denim (in trending a flare silhouette) and a stunning statement top. Add a heeled sandal or slip on a flat if you’ll be walking around on grass.
Restaurant Soirée: Relaxed Silhouettes in Airy Fabrics
Whether you’re attending a large party, or an intimate family dinner, we love these elevated looks. This gorgeous wrap style dress features a defined waist, which is flattering on a variety of body shapes. For something with a little more edge, try this printed jumpsuit with hidden pockets and subtle smocking. A wood block heel and jean jacket finish both looks to perfection.
Make an entrance with these standout looks. A beautiful printed top and skirt create a head-to-toe look to remember (take a cue from above and pair the top with jeans for a more casual event). And a brilliant pink boatneck shift is trendy twist on a classic silhouette—you definitely won’t get lost in the crowd in this one (exclusive to us!).
