Got a few weddings on your calendar this summer? Or a plethora of baby showers, graduation parties, formal dinners, and cocktail soirees? If the answer to any of these is yes, rest easy: We've found the perfect frock to get you through all those events in style.
The designers behind Costello Tagliapietra just launched a lower-priced capsule collection, called CT Costello Tagliapietra, right in time for warm-weather events. The line consists of 15 dresses priced at $298 each, and is carried exclusively at Barneys Co-op stores. The best part? The dresses feature the gorgeous draping and fluid silhouettes the designing duo is known for, sans the whole I-can't-go-out-for-a-month situation you normally find yourself in, after you buy one.
We like this boatneck, asymmetric option because it's a serious multi-tasker; pair it with a blazer and pumps for a business lunch, a jean jacket and chunky sandals for weekend brunches, or a statement necklace and peep-toe heels for a wedding. Like we always say: We can't help you juggle everything, but we can help you look hot while you attempt it.
CT Costello Tagliapietra Iris Dress, $298, available at Barneys Co-op, 3040 M Street NW,
202-350-5832; 5471 Wisconsin Avenue, Chevy Chase, 301-634-4061
