The Barneys Team on Dressing for the Dog Days of Summer

We’re nearing the home stretch of summer. And while cable knits and leather leggings are on the horizon, you can count on at least a few more weeks of heat. Below, the Barneys team shares their end-of-summer survival tactics.

 


I love ties but have a hard time getting knotted up during August. I prefer to rock a Truman capote kneckerchief instead. (Simonnot Godard Rivoli handkerchief pictured.)

I bought a lot of sleeveless dresses from Celine and Narciso and tops from Phillip Lim (pictured). That way when I’m cold, I can just throw a sweater on.

I’ll be staying cool in mint green Barneys New York CO-OP cutoff shorts.

I really love the very simple and beautifully cut black Givenchy two-piece solid color suit that I would wear with one of his beautiful military collar shirts.

It’s all about cotton jersey in August. I could live in Rick Owens Lilies sweatpants at home in the comfort of AC or walk out in them in the heat with an ATM t-shirt, some Illesteva shades and a pair of Tabitha Simmons snakeskin sandals. It’s the easy breezy look.

August signifies a return to the island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples, to experience the thermal waters of the White Spa at the Mezzatore Hotel and resort. A 16th century tower anchors this sea side hydro-therapy center; Visconti had a birds-eye view from his villa. I pack light with just a few essentials: trunks from Orlebar Brown and aviators from Ray Ban that you can fold up and slip in your pocket.

To the office, I will wear my Isabel Marant tops and dresses. They are so light and airy—you still manage to stay cool while looking great!
