Sexy In The City

-------


Swingy little dresses may be a staple of summer party hopping, but this year, we plan on kicking up our heels in a very cocktail-worthy romper. We’re particularly loving this bright style from Halston Heritage. Eat your heart out, Carrie Bradshaw. Click the image to shop.

Patchwork Principle

-------

We reported on Meadham Kirchhoff‘s collaboration with Topshop last week, and now that the collection is in stores, we’re trying to decide which piece we like best. Today, we’re leaning toward this peach lace, polka-dot, and sequin confection. It isn’t quite as goth as the navy and black frocks on offer, but still has the deconstructed look that Ben Kirchhoff and Ed Meadham have made their calling card. Click the image to shop.

Fatale Attraction

-------


It may still be all about body-con dresses, but nothing oozes sex appeal like a still slinky but decidedly less obvious L.B.D. Fairly demure from the front, the deep back of this sequined Aqua frock makes exiting the room a memorable occasion, which means you’ll reach for it again and again. Click the image to shop.

The Velvet Hour

-------


As evidenced by our Style Hunter slideshow (which you can view here), velvet is big for Fall. Designers from Rachel Roy to Dolce & Gabbana are banking on the fabric’s lush appeal, and since we’ve always loved the stuff, we couldn’t be happier. We’d normally wait until the cooler months to even think of wearing velvet, but seeing Ginnifer Goodwin in one of Vionnet’s sexy cocktail numbers at a recent event for the label has us thinking about trying the trend out on the next cool evening. This dress from Vince is elegant and simple, and best of all, on sale for only $113. Click the image to shop.

First Place

-------

Combining trends doesn’t always work (see: jeggings), but sometimes the elements come together in perfect harmony. Richard Nicoll‘s structured minidress gives you two Spring trends for the price of one. The boned and molded bodice is in line with the exposed lingerie look, while the ribbon sash suggests military without being obvious. We recommend pairing it with upswept hair and minimal jewelry for a refined cocktail look. Click the image to shop.
