StyleInspiration - The End of Summer into Fall Party Look

Image via Memorandum
Summer is coming to and end. The signs are all around us: back to school shopping ads, the sun is setting earlier and earlier and the incessant summer planning has come to an end. But you may have that last Summer wedding or big party to attend to. And maybe you are creatively wiped from all the events and parties you have dressed yourself these past few months. Instead of succumbing and dialing it in... paint the Summer of 2016 in red and go out with a bang! 

Maybe one inspired by the late Oscar de la Renta's spanish flair full of ruffles and brightness!

This particular dress reminded me of subdued version of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Cannes Alexandre Vauthier Couture dressI recently wore this dress to a Summer wedding and received tons of compliments.

Exclusive for Intermix Stacie Ruffle Maxi Dress in Red - $149 orig. $495 (purchase at IntermixNote currently an additional 30% off!

I styled it with vintage Saint Laurent wedges and these fun BaubleBar earrings. I can also see this dress looking lovely with a pair of flats for a more casual affair or some Stuart Weitzman nudist stilettos when the event permits.

If a midi look is what you crave, then, I suggest the amazing Luna dress by new to the scene Cinq à Sept (I am kind of obsessed with this dress (and brand) after seeing it on Priscilla Chan and Christian Serrato!)
