As the heat turns up and the layers come off, the mission to find the best pieces for keeping cool — figuratively and literally — takes the lead. Beat the hot weather, even in the dog days of summer, with the an ever useful wrap dress.
A personal favorite of mine, the wrap dress is a summertime clothing chameleon. Wear it as a cover-up to the beach, a special occasion dress, or to work! Though this style is truly year round, I've found 12 of the best summer wrap dresses full of floral prints, lightweight fabrics, and bright colorways made for twirling in sunshine.
Spring weather is a hot mess, but that doesn't mean your feet should be! Transition out of winter and conquer mother nature with these fabulous ankle boots that will keep you covered and become a statement piece to any outfit. From jeans to dresses, your feet will look chic.
2019 has given us a trip down memory lane with several '90s fashion trends. First, we got to relive our childhood with those fun scrunchies and hair accessories we used to rock as kids. The resurgence of platforms also brought us joy, especially when Steve Madden released a shoe collection inspired by the footwear style. Now, smocked dresses are the latest trend giving us pure '90s nostalgia. While we first saw the scrunched up fabric in off-the-shoulder tops, smock dresses are now helping us release our inner child. Whether you're looking for a long dress for those chillier summer nights or want to show some skin with a leg-baring piece, these are the hottest smocked dresses of the season. Scroll through to see our top picks.
As if traveling isn't stressful enough, we have to worry about bringing all the essentials—comfy (read: stretchy) jeans, an outfit that can be dressed up or down, something glitzy for a girl's night out, and at least two pairs of shoes—all without overpacking. Make the trip easier for yourself by choosing an overnight bag that's not too big nor too small. Enter: the weekender bag. It's the perfect travel-sized companion for a long weekend getaway or quick three-day trip whether by car, train, or plane, all while avoiding pesky checked baggage fees. We've collected the best, most stylish but durable weekender bags for women to take on the holiday hustle.
It's time to bid adieu to winter and welcome spring and summer. Shake off those winter blues and get ready for some warmth and sunshine by updating your spring wardrobe. Aside from figure-hugging pencils skirts and comfy mules, which are great transitional pieces to have in your closet, maxi dresses are another must-have fashion staple for the new season. From dresses with flirty bell sleeves to stylish flocks that scream "Spring Break" (yes, we're all in need of a vacation ASAP), these casual maxi dresses will keep you comfortable and looking your best all season long. Scroll through to see all the chic buys we're loving.
