How Rachel Zoe Styles Three Essential Summer Looks In Partnership With Cartier

By Zoe Ward

Whether a typical summer weekend finds you running to the local farmers market, on the dancefloor, or just on-the-go, in general — your wardrobe should always be bold. And nobody does statement-making style better than our own Rachel Zoe, which is why we tapped her to show Team Zoe’s VP of Content Nicky Deam how to chic-up three classic warm-weather occasions: Weekends, Weddings, and Day-To-Night outings. Featuring Cartier’s new double-wrap Panthère watch to ground each daring look, we’re stepping into summer with a subtle shimmer in tow.

Weekend

"Summer weekend looks should feel unfussy and carefree. I like midi-length dresses and flat sandals that can be easily dressed up with a playful purse and classic jewelry." - Nicky Deam

"I love this look because it so easily fits into anything you would do on a weekend -- the farmers market with the kids or lunch and shopping with friends. Wear with flats or heels depending on the occasion." - Rachel Zoe

Day-to-Night

"A suit in a lightweight fabric reads polished without being too stiff, and this three-piece version has a matching bustier that adds a dose of sass for a night out. Paired with minimalist sandals and a gleaming watch the result is polished and professional." - Nicky Deam

"As a designer, I like to achieve versatility in every look so it’s worth the investment -- I design looks to withstand trends and transcend time. You can choose to wear this look more conservatively to the office and easily transition to evening with the crop top and jacket off or grazing your shoulders." - Rachel Zoe

Summer Wedding

"Be statement-making but not too loud. You're there to celebrate the couple and the important moment in their lives so you want to look like you put in some effort, especially for black tie weddings." - Nicky Deam

"A classic slip dress works so well for a summer wedding and this pop of color is perfect for the season. Choose items that make you look and feel glamorous but that are uncomplicated and can withstand many hours of dancing!" - Rachel Zoe
