Summer offers up plenty of opportunities to socialize, from a casual day at the beach to formal weddings. But all that socializing might leave you wondering what to wear. Ann Magnin, a premier New York City fashion marketing agency, headed by Ann Magnin, of the same fashionable family who gave the world I. Magnin stores, has a few tips to share when it comes to savvy dressing for summertime socializing.
“Festive dresses, both short and long,” Ann Magnin's chic team advises, “serve as a colorful canvas for summer parties and weddings, while chic accessories -- from boho-inspired floppy hats to charming floral hair accessories -- add flair.”
And if you’re headed to the beach? Ann suggests a halter dress, like the one pictured above by Long Tall Sally. And what would a day at the beach be without a wide-brimmed sun hat?
For a garden party, Ann likes bold, floral print dresses, and delicate floral accessories, like the hair clips pictured above by Spring Street.
And if you’re lucky enough to have a destination wedding on your summer itinerary, Ann recommends a stylish duffle as your must-have travel accessory, like the fresh, green “Nantucket” cabin bag by Clava.
