Diane Von Furstenberg Perfect Black DressÂ – As traveling is a big part of summer, it is always important to bring the right essentials. As a person who packs terribly for example – I always end up bringing not enough pants or too many tops that do not go with anything or tops that I never wear that I hope to wear when I am away – which of course never happens, I realize that bringing and packing essentials is the only way to travel.Â
One of the easiest ways to pack for a vacation is to bring everything in monochromatic colors like black, white, grey, navy, so that there are no color coordinating issues. I know this may seem a little dull, but if want to look put together without having to worry if your floral top will go with your boyfriend jeans or if it is just too many trends going on, it is probably best to stick with the non printed essentials.
One of my favorite from the runway Little Black Dresses for the season is the Diane Von Furstenberg perfect little black dress. I love this dress because it is ladylike, pretty, simple, and flattering without looking too over the top. So if you take this dress with you on one of your summer trips you will sure to get a lot of use out of it.
For example, if you are traveling to New York City Â – this dress will have multiple uses. I can see this dress being used for a trip to the museum and lunch, a night out with a pair of pumps, afternoon tea at the Plaza, or drinks at Balthazar. Whatever you plan on doing, this dress will be your go to LBD or Little Black Dress on your trips this summer.

As a girl who is average height (on good days) I love wedges. They add height, without looking out of place at work or at the beach. If youâ€™re looking for height, or just a kick-ass pair of heels that wonâ€™t sink into the grass at a barbeque, then wedges are for you. Here are our top 5 open toe wedges:

4)Â Â Â Â Â Lanvin Mini Pop Crossbody Bag: This beautiful bag comes in gray and black crinkle calfskin.

Summer is right around the corner, and itâ€™s about time what we start looking at the world through rose-colored glasses, or should I say blouses? Pinks and oranges are starting to replace the colder hues of winter. Here are the top 5 pink tops of this season:
Diane Von Furstenberg Cahill Stretch Silk Peasant Blouse: This slightly pinker than coral blouse has pintuck pleats at the front and back of the neck, which gives it a relaxed shape. You can buy this silk top atÂ BloomingdalesÂ for $225.
Haute Hippie Fly Away Tank: The best parts about this shirt are the flattering cascade ruffles and the great color. Sometimes pinks can end up being too close to skin color but the coral and grapefruit hue is perfect. Grab this at Shopbop for $235.
Patterson J. Kincaid Yardey Blouse: This semi-sheer long slaved chiffon blouse is perfect for an afternoon out. Itâ€™s light, airy, and casual while still being effortlessly elegant and classy. Pick this up at Shopbop for $138.
Patterson J. Kincaid Flemming Tie Neck Tank: The tie style collar dresses up such a simple top. This sheer tank comes in neon coral, yellow and pink. Personally the yellow reminds me too much of a highlighter, but the coral and pink are both beautiful. Buy either of those colors at Shopbop for $108.
As Spring is finally approaching, we can now finally start to put the dark hues of our wardrobes away and bring in the new season with brighter, cheerier colors. For this yearâ€™s Spring, the color of choice is not pastels or bright pinks, but it is actually white: simple, timeless, and striking. Now, you may be thinking that white dresses in Spring seem very â€œtea party,â€ or â€œcountry club.â€ Contrary to this notion, white dresses will actually pose a stylish threat this season. Although you may have some white dresses already hanging in your closet, take a look at these five options that give a new spin on the classic white dress.
The first is the Theyskens’ Theory Dystie DressÂ available for $695. Itâ€™s a metallic tweed dress with a scoop neck that slightly flares at the waist creating a few subtle pleats. The tweed texture and high neckline give it an elegant twist that is quite different than your average white shift dress.
The next is theÂ Diane von Furstenberg Leeandra Flower Lace Dress Â available for $425. The long sleeves and semi-masculine collar provide a nice balance to the large lace pattern overlay that creates a sense of femininity.
The next style of white dress for the upcoming season is one like the Nellie Partow Ava DressÂ available for $845 that features a drop waist with side cutouts, creating a fabulous silhouette. The exposed seam on the waist provides the just enough trendiness and shape.
The Beyond Vintage V Neck Lace Batwing DressÂ available for $249 is one of my favorite new styles of white dresses for Spring and we should be seeing a lot like these for the upcoming season. The scalloped lace edges on the dress make it have a gorgeous hemline and the dainty yet billowy sleeves are complimentary on any figure. It is sweet and sophisticated all in one. The last white dress grabs a new take on the traditional white goddess dresses that we have gotten so used to seeing in the warmer months.
The BCBGMAXAZRIA Magdalena Gown Â available for $348 gives an almost casual chicness to the idea of a floor length white dress. Its sheer mesh cutouts at the neck and on the sides give it just the right amount of sex appeal while still allowing it to maintain its classy nature. These five different styles and takes on the traditional white Spring dress will almost certainly be seen on the trendiest fashionistas and most glamorous celebrities who know how to spot a staple item of clothing that has been reinstituted as a unique fashion treasure.
