With hot weather heading our way, we’ve pretty much decided that we’re going to be living in dresses all summer long. They’re easy to throw on and head out the door, and can make you look instantly polished. Plus, there are tons of styles to choose from — maxi dresses, mini dresses, trapeze dresses, off-the-shoulder dresses … you name it, we want it.
But we’ll be honest: the hardest part of pulling together a cute outfit is, well, pulling together all the pieces. You can have a gorgeous dress or cute romper, but without a great shade of lipstick or fab shoes, it really isn’t living up to its full potential.
So we asked each of our editors to put together their perfect summer outfit — complete with accessories and beauty picks. We even threw a couple outfits with shorts and rompers as key pieces, in case dresses just aren’t your thing. Click through and get ready for some serious outfit inspo.
