Melissa Liebling-Goldberg is the Editorial Director, Women’s at, 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. 

You’ve only got a few weeks of summer left, so it’s time to make the absolute most of it. Make plans with all your friends for rooftop drinks, beach parties and picnics in the park, and don’t worry about what you need to wear because we’ve done all that work for you!

We suggest showing off that golden glow (fake, we hope!) in a lovely white dress. Accept that it’ll get a little dirty —  that’s what cleaning is for — and just go out and have fun without worrying about getting your dress a little messy. Ground it with a neutral sandal, flat for day and teetering-high for night.
Then take your look to the next level with pops of color. Turquoise and coral are the colors of summer every year for a reason. They look good with every skin tone and make a tan look that much more radiant. Lastly, a colorful clutch adds a touch of whimsy to create a the look that’s perfect for a party.
