August Essentials: Must-Have Dresses For Summer’s Last Hurrah

This month, the Fashion Office’s edit proves that here at Barneys New York, there’s a dress for everyone to love.

Roaming the halls of our New York offices, you’ll find a melting pot of unique personal styles and wardrobe preferences. There’s the resident ’90s grunge enthusiast, the bona fide glam-girls, and our own street style phenoms. Yet, despite independent points of view with their wardrobes, the fashion team is in agreement as far as what to wear this August: dresses. In the last month of summer, even our most devout pant-lovers trade their favorite culottes and skinnies for A-line, tie-waist, and floor-length frocks. With one last chance to embrace your right to bear legs before trouser weather sets in, the Fashion Office rounds up the best dresses for everyone, including you..
