Gilt Editor’s Perfect Outfit: Day to Night Layers

Melissa Liebling-Goldberg is the Editorial Director, Women’s at, and has previously worked at People Style Watch 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 upon us, but sometimes the temperatures dip below warm into a little chilly at night, and you need to be out from dawn til dusk. We’ve crafted the perfect weekend outfit that can take you from brunch to shopping to cocktails outdoors — all by adjusting a few key layers.

Start with the base of a printed maxidress. It’s comfortable, flattering, and can look as casual or dressy as you need it too. A great print can really anchor a look, too, while working perfectly on its own. So it’s a little cool out when you leave the house in the am? Add on a great whisper-weight scarf looped around your neck like a Parisian lady. Even if it heats up a little, you are still kept cool with great flat sandals — and did we mention how comfy this all is?
As nighttime approaches and the breeze rolls in, you’ll want to look just a bit cooler (and feel just a bit warmer). Add a shrunken leather jacket and push up the arms to reveal your stacks of colorful bangles. If you want to show a little more collarbone, take off your scarf and tie it onto your purse for a little pop of color.
Did we mention this is the perfect travel outfit too? Step right off the chilly plane and shed your layers to head straight to the nearest margarita.
