The Scene: Afternoon garden fete
Her Must-Have: The colorblocked jumpsuit
Any reason to dine and drink al fresco is a good reason. And, taking advantage of your neighbor's backyard garden calls for a free-spirited, yet polished, look that raises the bar for day-time hangs. This two-toned number is a great fake-out option if you’re a little intimidated by the idea of a onesie.

“Silkier fabrics are better for jumpsuits — they lay nicer and look more luxurious,” says Suarez.

Her Must-Have: The polka-dot roller
When you're cramming all your favorite wrap dresses and leather sandals in one bag and entrusting it to the airlines, you want a sturdy piece of luggage that can withstand even the harshest of baggage claims. This summer, Suarez is packing her bags for a trip to Stockholm Fashion Week and a jaunt to Berlin (we know, we know, tough life).

“A lot of people tie colored bandanas or hair ties to their suitcases to spot them at baggage claim, but polka dots are so much more eye-catching,” says Suarez. “Plus, you could wear your oldest leggings and baggiest hoodie, and standing next to this cute print would totally upgrade your outfit.”
For a similar suitcase, try:

Her Must-Have: The starburst necklace
Nights out that fall in that tricky place between dive bar and bottle service are always the toughest to dress for, but this mixed-textures look hits all the high notes. The sequined black mini is toned down — and classed up — with a clean, structured trench and 3-D jewelry that draws the eye.
