7 Outfits Inspired by World Fashion Trends
Even if you’re more of a homebody than a wanderer, this dress will appeal to you. The pattern is totally wild (zigzags, checks, and ombré all in one!), but the neutral tones make it seem practically tame—and easy to wear year-round. Plus, the wide V-neck helps balance full hips.

Ideal for the hostess who wants the mostest comfort, the unexpected combo of a beaded silk tank and patterned pants offers a chilled-out alternative to a constricting cocktail dress.

To the Maxi
