24 Floral Summer Dresses That You’ll Wear Well into Autumn

Published

on

Unless you’re a die-hard jeans-all-year-round kind of person, then I bet you have a couple of summer dresses lurking in your wardrobe. Or, you might be someone who wears dresses all the time and can’t think of any reason as to why you’ve ever wear trousers. What I’m saying is if you seriously hate dresses, then look away now for here you will only find frocks and that’s it. At Who What Wear we pride ourselves on knowing a lot about dresses—we write about them enough and spend hours looking at the latest collections—so it makes sense that we should use our knowledge of all the best versions out there to create up-to-date edits of frocks that you’ll not only love but will also wear for a long time. Today, I’m writing about floral summer dresses that will last you well into autumn. 

Traditionally, the floral frock is worn during long weekend brunches, strolls through the park and family BBQs. Of course, this summer looks a little different so with fewer opportunities to wear said dresses, it means that more than ever we want to ensure our summer outfits will stretch out to the cooler months. This also helps with making our wardrobes more sustainable (the more you wear an item, the better) and watching our budgets. I’ve found 24 of the chicest floral frocks that I know will look great now but will be just as amazing come autumn. Keep scrolling for the edit…

Lady Gaga is set to star in Valentino Beauty’s latest fragrance campaign. The Italian fashion house announced Gaga as the new face of Voce Viva, a perfume created by Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli.

“Imagined as a voice to spread a message around the world, Valentino Voce Viva invites everyone to touch hearts, inspire others and live their dreams,” the brand said in a press release. “Expressing the Maison’s values of inclusivity and individuality, Voce Viva celebrates one of the women’s most intimate sense.”

To spread this messaging, Valentino selected Gaga for her Italian roots, inclusivity, and individuality. “Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure heart,” Piccioli said in a statement. “Her participation in this campaign elevates the symbolic power of the project to the highest level. She is the icon of a generation. Her message of freedom, passion for art, self-consciousness and equality is the same our Valentino community stands for. I am so proud for having her in.”

Gaga’s campaign will debut this September, in accordance with the worldwide launch of Voce Viva. The singer has long been a fan of Valentino, having worn the brand’s pieces multiples times on the red carpet when promoting A Star is Born.

Perhaps most memorably, she attended the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards and accepted the award for Best Original song in a periwinkle Valentino gown. She also wore a dramatic Valentino feather gown at the Venice Film festival in 2018.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Spring 2021 Menswear Collection

Published

on

By

“For a future that is healthy, bright, and full of hope.” So read the closing caption at the end of an engagingly filmed and attractive collection from Homme Plissé Issey Miyake. That it was worth sticking around until the end of the credits to read said caption is down to the phone-shot footage of Plissé enthusiasts out and about, enjoying their clothes. Before that we saw three dancer models, one of whom was partnered with a basketball, demonstrate the ease the pieces afford by moving enthusiastically. A very nice touch was the suggestion that these were not only clothes you choose to put on in the morning, but also clothes that implore to be worn: They attracted the attention of the models by quivering on the rail with the same pent-up urgency my reproachfully unwalked dog demonstrated all day one of this digital Paris Fashion Week.

Among the highlights were a tracksuit in an irregular, multicolor, cityscape inspired check; robe-like coats in polyester printed in soft-toned bleach puckerings originally rendered on denim; and pieces in a mesh fabric developed to resemble a hologram. Plissé jackets included new three-quarter sleeves which Miyake’s typically comprehensive notes explained were designed to transition between the formal and casual. Two looks in top-to-toe stone tones, with low hemmed shirts, were perhaps a little cult member / spa employee, but evidently deeply relaxing to wear. Plissé pieces can be classed as both activewear and tools for attainment of serenity.

Lululemon is having its first major sale in 3 years after coronavirus crushed business

Popular athletic apparel retailer Lululemon, known for its leggings and other workout gear, is holding its first major warehouse sale since 2017 due to the coronavirus putting a strain on business, according to a report by Business Insider.

The sale is online only, and new deals will appear each day through Monday.

Although you can snag Lululemon’s popular items like leggings starting at $49 and shorts starting at $29, the rare sale makes it clear just how much most of the retail industry is struggling.

Lululemon’s first-quarter earnings report shows that its net revenue dropped by 17% compared to 2019 as it was forced to temporarily shut its stores due to the pandemic.

Some of the noteworthy deals that are part of the sale:

25″ High-Rise Tights for $69, instead of $98

Medium Support Sports Bra for $29, instead of $78

Cropped Pants for $59, instead of $98

Down Jacket for $79, instead of $198

Cycling Jacket for $59, instead of $168

There are currently 14 Lululemon stores in New Jersey and all have since reopened, except for the Jersey Garden Mills location in Elizabeth.

You can browse the entire Lululemon online sale here.
