Pastel Perfection

HEATHER HAZZAN

Candy colors were a huge trend on the runways this season. Make like an off-duty model and toss a borrowed-from-the-boys moto jacket over a pale pink lace dress for a heavy-dose of tough love.

Pretty in Plaid

HEATHER HAZZAN

Cooler temps may be approaching, but featherlight frocks need not be stored just yet. Rather, take a page from the ’90s grunge playbook and layer them over second-skin turtlenecks. For a modern bite, choose decidedly sleek stompers and neon hoops.

Slip Into It

HEATHER HAZZAN

We can thank the Insta-set for the trend that keeps on giving: the slinky satin slip. Give a shorter version an after-hours upgrade with tights and the most outré shoes you can find to rack up likes on-screen and off.

Seeing Spots

HEATHER HAZZAN

Any Parisian will tell you that polka dots are a one-way ticket to effortless style. For an evening out and about, wear the timeless pattern with heaps of shine to—quite simply—dazzle.
