We’ve given the classic polo dress a makeover, and the result is the new DVF Sorrel. Our signature printed silk pairs with a ribbed knit back and accents for a chic, comfortable and alluring fit. We love this look for the weekend with a sandal or sneaker, and it’s polished enough to carry you through the work week. With a statement heel and an on-the-go crossbody bag, the DVF Sorrel is the season’s easiest way to button up.

It might be scorching in New York City, but we’re always looking for pieces to go from now to next season. At the top of our current list? The Rayan little black dress. The crossover front is a flattering V but not too low—just right for showing off a modern choker. The easy fit and ruffle pair well with the season’s must-have mule and crossbody bag. The mid-weight fabric will also stand up to tights and boots come fall. It all adds up to a LBD with staying power—that’s the perfect fit for now.

This weekend, stylish mother, actress and Manhattanite Katie Holmes was spotted around town in one of the most exclusive styles of the season. The DVF Hannah maxi dress, available only on DVF.COM and in our boutiques, is an exotic yet effortless style that’s perfect for summer in the city!

We’re wild about ethnic collage, one of the key prints of the Pre-Fall season. A stunning mix, it comes in both black and white and a colorful melange, shown here on the Hathaway peasant top. For fall, we’ll pair this chiffon top with a leather pencil skirt, but we just can’t bear to wait! So we’re wearing it now with an essential slim white jean, and our favorite summer accessories: sandals, shades and a flirty pop of color.

If this dress looks vaguely familiar, you may be thinking of the Jane gown, which has been everywhere from the beautiful Hilary Swank to the cover of The Edit. But we thought it was worth noting that she has has an equally stunning little sister, the Janie. With the same easy shape and ruffled elbow-length sleeves as her more dramatic counterpart, the Janie is a sweet and flirty mini dress in a floral print for all seasons. For summer weekends, we’re styling this with vintage-inspired wooden heels and a fringed crossbody bag, but she’ll fare just as well with boots and an oversized cardigan come fall.

Let’s talk about accessories for a minute. Whether you favor a great sheath dress or a printed mini romper, no look is complete without a bit of “punctuation” as Diane likes to call it. Take this fringed Folio bag, for example. Both on-trend and solution oriented, this compact crossbody has a detachable strap so it can be carried just as well as a clutch. Need a lift—and a break from stilettos? This suede “flatform” has you covered. And don’t get us started about jewelry, especially this eye-catching status necklace. Pull them all together with your silhouette of choice—ours is an easy Freya drawstring shirt dress, back for the season in the stunning ethnic print.

We’re the first to say a wrap dress can go anywhere. Diane, for example, famously wore the little dress to the couture shows in Paris (when the sun came out, she responded by rolling up the sleeves and letting the skirt fall away). We must, however, acknowledge that there are just a few places where this freeing style can be a bit… tricky. Approaching a helicopter, for example, is risky, as is giving a speech outdoors on a windy day. So for these sort of settings, we have the Savannah dress. This faux wrap style preserves the collar, cuffs and fitted crossover front of a true wrap, with a closed skirt and side zip for a windproof look. That said, it’s so striking in this new leopard print that you may end up wearing it everywhere–even indoors.

Whether you’re American, Australian, French, Russian, Icelandic or Cuban (and that’s just a smattering of countries who pledge allegiance to the red, white and blue) this particular tricolore salad may tug at your patriotic heartstrings. And that’s quite aside from how perfectly these three colors go together. I can personally attest to this: between my hair, my eyes and my ghostly pallor, it is incredibly wearable (or unavoidable). Added bonus: worn à trois it will also ensure that no one will be able to guess whether you’ve committed to one or the other political party until you’re safely inside the voting booth next fall.
But put all thoughts of elections aside for a moment and think about this lovely weekend just around the bend, and how many clambakes, boule tournaments and sunset cocktails you won’t have to plan for if you just follow my advice below. Friday night all you need to think about is whether you want to wear this denim and lace wrap dress with shoes or without. I’d vote to save them for another outfit, and wear a set of golden bracelets instead, as the dress needs no extra help. And when you decide to jump straight from deck into the ocean for a midnight skinny dip it comes off in a cinch. Thankfully, you can sleep in and wake up just in time for a spot of pétanque, which you’re naturally going to win. A pair of white shorts, a loose tented red shirt (my favorite silhouette of the season), a touch of festive fringe for good luck and you’re set. Bask in your glory all afternoon in nothing but a bikini and a pair of DVF sunnies, and head back to shore for a clambake in our navy knit shirt dress and caramel platform sandals. Another added bonus: you’ll never find the melted butter stains on this print, so don’t bother with a bib and enjoy the balmy evening.

The classic jersey sheath dress gets a summer makeover on the Bella. Well, we should say makeovers, but we’ll get to that! This particular Bella, a DVF exclusive, brings the boldest print of the Pre-Fall season to this crossover, tie-front style that feels so comfortable, yet looks fearless and modern with on-trend accessories like this essential mule and fringe bag. Prefer a petite print? Try this Bella instead. Or make a solid statement in this raspberry silk version. Can’t get enough? There’s always the edgy leather-and-jersey Bella, a favorite of Natalie Joos, to round out your collection.

We’re putting the spotlight back on the Layla dress. We’ve already shared how to wear this feminine, breezy style to summer weddings, but with things really heating up in New York, we’ve been turning to it for days in the office and weekends alike. One of Diane’s favorite silhouettes, the Layla is a must-have in this ombré floral, which gets a casual twist with an of-the-moment fringe bag and a wooden platform heel. Light and loose, you can’t get much cooler than the Layla dress.
