Cool Looks for Hot Summer Nights

You want something that’s sleek but not sticky, fashion-forward but never fussy. Cool in every sense of the word. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re talking about going-out clothes for summer. Below, three easy (and elegant) evening looks that fit the bill.

WHAT TO WEAR TO…

A NICE DINNER

Balance the inherent sexiness of a slip dress with sandals (we’re particularly fond of this barely there pair, which is made exclusively for goop by our favorite cobbler this side of Capri) and something billowy on top. Bonus points for matching your bag to your button-down.

Start with a sexy bandeau bikini, some here-for-a-good-time hoops, and an ankle-length cover-up you’ll swap for a sarong once you hit the sand. Then add a hands-free bag (hey, those citrus-spiked cocktails won’t carry themselves) and shoes you can last all night in.

The beauty of this silky monochrome set? It’s easy. It’s chic. And best of all: It feels like pajamas. A striped cardigan and strappy kitten heels—plus glamorous finishing touches, like fluttery lashes and delicate diamonds—keep the look from veering too far into sleepover territory.
