Ladies and gents, our favorite time of the year is almost upon us: that May-to-September span we like to think of as "easy dress season." You throw on a sweet little frock, slip into a pair of cute kicks and—bam!—your styling duties are done for the day. (Leaving you all the more time to focus on where you'll meet for al fresco drinks).
Elaine Turner—the shoe and handbag designer—clearly knows what we're talking about. Her brand new apparel collection ($148–$378), out today, is full of the sort of easy-breezy pieces we can see ourselves living in for the next several months. A bright silk charmeuse kaftan dress ($328), for instance, is a slam-dunk choice for summer cocktails or Saturday brunch. A drapey tank dress ($228) can be worn under a fitted blazer for work, or with lace-up gladiator sandals for a girl's night out. Other styles –including tunic tops and darling shorts—will roll out later this spring, each available in warm weather-inspired hues such as navy, turquoise and coral.
