THE LNBD

That’s the “Little Not Black Dress.” Personally, this is what I live in all summer. I don’t understand why anyone would want to disappear into the sea of black at cocktail parties. This whispers just a little louder.

Iodice One-Strap Dress ($170)

Lorick Jersey Walking Dress ($180)

APC Chambray Wrap Dress ($150)

OVERALLS

So fun, so versatile, so easy. Until you get to the bathroom. But in summer, even that is not such an issue. Declare playtime with:

BCBG Khaki Cotton Halter Romper ($60)

Corey Lynn Calter Black Silk Overalls ($160)

Helmut Lang Black Wool Playsuit ($140)

BLACK PANT

Or several. One high-waisted, one narrow, one floaty silky, one cropped, one tuxedo, one jeans-style…It’s a blank canvas for everything else, seasonless and timeless. Bootleg it in:

Chanel Tuxedo Pant ($250)

Lanvin Silk Evening Pant ($380)

Rag & Bone Lado Legging ($90)

SHORTS

But of course, you’ve been wearing nothing else since May. This year’s are short-short, but walking shorts and florals and lace and leather are all good. Put up your Daisy Dukes in:

New Vince Linen Short ($90)

Marc Jacobs Perforated Leather Short ($120)

LONG SKIRT

The only possible skirt. Avoid the bohemian look by skirting the issue with pleats, metal embellishments, or a crisp A-line silhouette. Try:

Joseph Deep Purple Skirt ($80).

Jil Sander Long Pleated Skirt ($160)

Vintage Sonia Rykiel Skirt ($180)

CARDIGAN

I’m biased, having never met a cardi I don’t like, but this is the best garment ever invented. Dressy and structured or sloppy and caj, they squash into your purse, add personality, and keep out the A/C chill. Get cardied in:

Zero + Maria Cornejo Tri-Color Linen Cardigan ($160)

Marni White Wrap ($250)

Vintage Boiled Wool Gold Brocade Jacket ($180)

STRIPES

Stripes are back, as you have noticed. Maybe too back. But stock up while you can. Remember: horizontals make you look thinner. Verticals on the leg are very unkind. Stripes and stripes forever with:

Missoni Striped Top ($190)

Erotokritos Cotton Knit With Lace ($60)

Comme des Garçons Rainbow Striped Tee ($120)

FLORALS

Fem and sweet no more; make it graphic, wear it large. Pair it with a stripe with extra kapow. Bloom in:

Marni Silk/Cotton Wrap ($360)

Paul Smith Silk Roses Shift ($200)

Marc Jacobs Floral Dress ($360)

ASYMMETRICALS

Nothing says fashion like a single sleeve. Give them the cold shoulder with:

Thread Social Pink One-Shoulder Dress ($210)

Callaghan Glitter Lightning Top ($120)

Architectural Objects One-Sleeved Black Tee ($90)

CROPPED JACKET

Throw it over the long and lean. It’s the only ’80s thing that counts. Aside from Thierry Mugler. And Ungaro. Go short and sweet with:

Doo.Ri Silk Bolero with Swarovski crystals ($100)

Rodarte for Target Faux Sheepskin Jacket ($70)

EDUN Silk Burlap Cropped Jacket ($50)
