From a bright floral frock, to a striped maxi-dress, to the chicest way to style shorts, we’ve got the essentials to keep you looking fresh all season long.

Perfect Outfit #1: The Floral Dress

We can’t think of anything better for a hot summer day than a sweet floral dress with some electric blue wedges—as seen on Who What Wear’s Editorial Director, Hillary Kerr. Just make sure you add some attention-grabbing red nail polish and the perfect tortoiseshell glasses and you’ll be set.
