Melissa Liebling-Goldberg is the Editorial Director, Women’s at Gilt.com, and has previously worked at People StyleWatch and Teen Vogue, so she’s an expert when it comes to must-have looks and jet-set style. Here, she weighs in on her top outfit for the week.
Summer is slowly drawing to a close (don’t blame us!) and while visions of cuddly cashmere and sexy leather for fall may be dancing in your head, it’s not actually that cool out yet.
We came up with the perfect transitional outfit that will take you to work and out to drinks with style and ease. Start with one of the hottest trends for fall by picking a standout printed dress. A silk dress in a tunic or shirtdress shape is a style that’s as comfortable as it is chic — the ultimate wardrobe win-win.
If there’s a chill in the air or in your office, add on a lightweight cardigan in a complementary color to your pattern. If you’re feeling bold, keep the color story going with your pumps. We love how fresh a non-platform pump looks for fall. It’s ladylike and classic, but with the right color, it’s still super sexy.
Chunky bangles and a laptop-friendly carryall finish off your look. And remember to enjoy your last days of summer as much as we do!
Pair a statement print dress with a light cardigan for a versatile outfit that will take you through the day and into the night.
