“This season, more than any other season, I channel my personal style through dresses — from feminine silhouettes with bold patterns to adorable denim frocks (like this Givenchy one) — that make me feel like I’m taken back to the summer of ’69.” —Alyssa Coscarelli, senior fashion market editor.
“My wardrobe tends to be black, black, black, but summer is the one time of year I allow myself to break out a tiny bit of color. This pink bag is the perfect way to welcome the season (and a little color).” —Rebecca Smith, managing editor
“Whether I’m snoozing on the beach or just being plain extra at bottomless brunch, you’ll never find me far from a floppy straw sun hat. Nothing reads OOO vibes more than this one — literally.” —Allie Briggs, fashion and beauty writer
“Somewhat unintentionally, it turns out all of the jeans and skirts I own are black. So really my only hope for bringing some seasonal vibes into my wardrobe is through a few bright-colored tops. Luckily, this sunny striped tee is perfect for doing just that.” —Ali Ives, fashion editor
“I love to slip into espadrille sandals. They’re that perfect mix of comfy and chic — and transition seamlessly from work to happy hour. If you don’t consider yourself a heels girl, this is the perfect closed-toe platform sandal to kick off the season in.” —Nana Agyemang, fashion and beauty content strategy editor
“Hoops are a pretty basic staple in my wardrobe. I find I reach for my thicker, bolder ones a lot in summer when temperatures dictate wearing anything that won’t stick to me. Big gold hoops are the perfect way to make a lazy outfit look intentional.” —Channing Hargrove, fashion news writer
“Phasing out my go-to leather shoulder bag for a straw bag is one of the most exciting parts of this season for me. It’s just the right amount of unfussy (while still feeling like I care about what I’m wearing) and works equally well at the beach and brunch. —Lucy Meilus, senior lifestyle and entertainment editor.
“I’ve always been a fan of casual, cutesy summer jumpsuits. They’re beyond easy to pull off and are the ultimate one-and-done for when you’re in a rush to get ready. Plus, who doesn’t love a little ruffle?” —Claire Fontanetta, senior beauty editor
