BARNEYS NEW YORK Geometric-Print Silk Dress / KHOKHO Jabu Mini Straw & Leather Basket Bag / SAMUELE FAILLI Lauren Suede Sandals

How She Wears It: Our Fashion Director has an effortlessly feminine personal style and loves a graphic dress for its one-and-done sensibility. “The print on this Barneys New York dress speaks for itself, so I’ve kept my accessories neutral. I paired it with an on-trend raffia bag to bring a beach vibe to the city streets.”

How She Wears It: Take a cue from Gurki and don’t shy away from color this summer—in fact, go all in pairing primary hues like bright yellow and bold blue. To balance out this dress’s asymmetrical cut, Gurki accented with a few bold bracelets. “Stacking my vibrant Mark Davis bangles complemented the silhouette of the dress. I even wore a Chloé bag that practically feels like another bracelet thanks to the metal handle.”

How She Wears It: “Working in men’s fashion, I am influenced by a lot of grunge and sporty trends,” says Victoria, who loves the feminine take on athleisure exemplified in this Givenchy sweatshirt dress. To keep her waist defined in the oversized silhouette, she simply added the accessory of the season: a belt bag. “This Wandler bag simultaneously adds dimension while allowing me to stay hands-free.”

How She Wears It: Rethink summer’s breezy maxi by styling in structured pieces like a tailored blazer, a boxy bag, and classic slingbacks. These pieces transition the vacation staple into city life in a way that lasts far beyond Labor Day. “Plus, topping a blazer over a spaghetti-strap dress keeps the look polished for the office,” notes Meredith.

I took a cue from French-girl style by wearing a bold red lip, too,” says Mara. Master that certain je ne sais quoi with no-fuss white sneakers, a crossbody bag, and trusty sunnies.
