Carry On: Luxe Deluxe
When it comes to looking your best at summer’s most special occasions, it’s all in the details, aka your accessories. Embellishment-heavy evening-wear can be a bit excessive on a sunny day, and sweating your way through an afternoon in a feather-and-crystal-covered ball gown is not a good look on anyone. Nevertheless, it’s easy to incorporate these upscale elements of formal-wear into your daytime or evening look with sparkling accessories.
Before your summer calendar fills up with engagement parties, bachelorettes and weddings, find a neutral, flattering dress that you absolutely love to wear—see Valentino, Stella McCartney and Rick Owens for some runway inspiration. Next, stock up on fun, glittery accessories to create a fancy new look for each event. Not only will this customize your look for every occasion, but you’ll be ready for anything and everything under the sun.
A petite minaudière lace clutch will hold all of your necessities, like your iPhone, lipstick, keys and cash. Vintage-inspired rhinestone earrings paired with simple gold cuffs and rings take any summer-ready dress from afternoon garden party to cocktail hour and look classy right up to the very end of the evening. Finish off your look with an elegant pair of shimmering, pointy-toe pumps that you’ll have in rotation well into fall.
