Flirty Dresses


The dropwaist and detailed blue pattern have a subtle '40s sensibility.
file
Strategic color-blocking like this is a great way to instantly slim hips.
file
Pretty and ladylike, from the delicate floral print to the row of tiny buttons on the bodice.
file
An abstract neon yellow pattern adds interest to an easy-to-wear spaghetti-strap number.
file
Strips of watercolor silk create a beautiful, subtly textured look.

Swimsuits for Every Body



The one-piece construction is ideal for holding everything in.
file
Bottoms with adjustable ties on the sides ensure that the suit won't cut into your hips; this provides a customized, seriously flattering fit.
file
An extra band of fabric around the hips will camouflage your backside without covering you up too much.
file
A slightly curvy sweetheart top gives your chest a nice, defined shape, while the bra-like underwire provides exactly the right amount of support.
file
Layers of tiered ruffles on top instantly add volume and give the illusion of a fuller chest.
file

The Cutest Flat-Front Shorts



A rugged style made preppy thanks to thin blue, gray, and white stripes.
file
This dressy option would look great paired with a glinty, metallic sandal.
file
The cotton-linen blend is breathable, and the shape of these is so forgiving.
file
The white piping on this khaki style is so crisp.
file
Casual and comfortable—the type of piece you'll live in on the weekends.
file

Gorgeous, Flowery Scents



This limited-edition floral smells just like ripe, fresh-cut roses; the amber undertone makes it undeniably sexy.
file
Honestly like the evening air in a flowering orange grove.
file
This smells—coolly, not intensely—like a flower shop. Heaven.
file
A perfect balmy-afternoon-in-the-garden blend: Jasmine mingles with mango, and tomato leaf gives it a green, herbal spin ("Folavril" means "April Fools'" in French, btw).
file
A gorgeous tangle of wild honeysuckle, salty beach air, and a general grassy/earthy lightness.
file

The Best Beach Carryalls



The quintessential summer tote—the rope detailing and blue-and-white stripes are so beachy, and the long straps make it easy to throw over your shoulder.
file
This ultra-lightweight canvas option looks stylish slung across your body or toted by hand.
file
Soft, dip-dyed stripes have a boho, homespun look.
file
A modern pixelated print makes a supremely functional nylon carryall fun.
file

Body-Flattering Rompers



Featherlight, and in the most fun teal shade.
file
Made of Supima cotton, this stripped-down version looks supremely wearable.
file
The coolest mix—the shape is sporty, but the silk fabric and tiered hem are anything but.
file
The epitome of boho luxe, this would look amazing with gold heels.
file
Embroidery details elevate this brightly hued piece.
