Summer’s Most Elegant Dress Style


In search of a pretty frock for your next summer soiree? Take cues from Zoe Saldana’s latest look: The starlet walked the carpet of the Infinitely Polar Bear premiere during the Los Angeles Film Festival in this bohemian-chic Louis Vuitton number, whose one-shoulder silhouette was spot-on for the season. Though it’s natural to hike up the hemlines come warm weather, there’s another way to show some skin without baring it all by choosing a dress with exposed-shoulder action. Go printed and long à la Zoe, or monochromatic and mid-length for an equally elegant effect. Here, shop 6 different takes on the look to see you through the season.
