Fionda Ponte Floral Dress
Weekend Max Mara
Sold by: Saks Fifth Avenue

Fit Guide
The Dress. Every woman needs a go-to dress that will work for the office as easily as it will for cocktails or a nice dinner. And this Weekend Max Mara dress will do just that. Plus, it’s done in a versatile ponte fabric, which is ideal for the warm weather since it breathes and has some stretch to it – but still has enough weight to drape nicely around the body. You’ll never go wrong with a neutral floral combination like this, and the black side panels create a slimming trick of the eye that works perfectly with the modern fit (XS-XXL). Simple black pumps will look as pretty as a metallic or a pop of color, so you can’t go wrong.

The Anatomy of an Outfit: Ladies’ Warm Weather Edition

We are officially in summer. OK, that’s actually about a month away. But once Memorial Day is behind us, all of our mindsets are in summer mode. With thoughts of outdoor fun on our minds, a different way of dressing starts settling in for many of us. But the real question we hear a lot is, “ What clothes are appropriate for the season when I’m not at the beach or a barbecue?” So we’re taking this week to simplify dressing. What key pieces do you need to create a seasonal, modern look that will be appropriate – for work, a night out, a casual day? What truly is the “Anatomy of an Outfit”? We’re breaking down the essential components that will get you through the season in style and comfort, without breaking a sweat.

Take a look at a few core pieces of any outfit here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, where we break down the anatomy of 2 outfits for each: work (Tuesday), a night out (Wednesday), and a casual Summer day (Thursday). If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

Converse - Chuck Taylor® All Star® '70 Ox Sneakers
The Shoes. Simple as can be, the white sneaker is back. Whether you wore Converse Chuck Taylors the first time, the second time, or the fifth time they became a fashion statement – or you stuck with them the whole time – this is one trend we think anyone can revisit, at any age. They are super comfortable and look adorable with all the midi-length (just below the knee) skirts out this season. And of course, with shorts, jeans, or relaxed pants of any shape they have that perfect effortless vibe.

The Bottom. The new look of jeans is all about ‘70’s style – higher rises and flared legs, and that is one elongating and flattering combination. These 7 For All Mankind jeans are amazing. The material can’t be softer, with just the right amount of stretch to provide comfort without cling. The rise is higher, sitting at/just above (depending on your torso) the belly button. It’s not an exaggerated high rise as some jeans can be, so its just high enough to suck you in and prevent muffin top - very flattering. We love how they have a professional look with their trouser hem finish, so they can work in a casual office setting or a casual Friday. And they absolutely will become your go-to for a night out or on the weekends with it’s 5-pocket styling. The easy contemporary fit and even dark wash is slimming on all figures. This is the ideal pair of flare jeans. Sizes are already starting to sell-out so don’t think about this one for too long.

The Summer Layer. The important thing is that you have something that is versatile and works with pants, skirts, dresses, even shorts because you want to be able to throw it on at a moment’s notice – and not have it look that way, of course. This Polo Ralph Lauren blazer is made of a cotton pique that dresses up and down with ease. The high hip length provides the right proportion for pants or skirts that are wide and flowy or tapered and tailored. And the stylish bracelet-length sleeve looks great pushed up, as is, or with the cuff of a long sleeved shirt rolled over it. Ralph Lauren’s new Polo line for women has done a great job of reinterpreting the timeless look they’ve been achieving for men for years, but with a stylish feminine sensibility and modern – yet slim – fit that is flattering on most figures. If you’re looking for a cardigan to do the job, J.Crew always delivers with their classic cotton version.

The Top. A button down shirt that can be turned into a professional piece or a casual one is an important component of a summer outfit. With a pencil skirt or tailored trousers, it has a timeless vibe that can work on its own or under a blazer. With jeans or denim shorts, you’ve got your look for any casual day. The importance of gingham this season is not to be ignored, and in a menswear-inspired button down silhouette it becomes more than a universal staple…it’s a fashion add-on. Equipment is known for their shirts, in cotton or silk, for good reason. The modern fit is impeccable – the buttons are in just the right places and the shape is loose, though not oversized. The quality of the fabric is beautifully soft, too, and they are always on the money when it comes to color and pattern.
