In your many daydreams about the upcoming summer season, it's safe to assume you're frolicking about in flirty, breezy confections that help you keep your cool as the temperatures start to rise. As such, you're likely looking to stock your wardrobe with those kinds of pieces that'll be perfect for basking in the summer sun. Go ahead and call off the search, because Dôen's Summer 2019 collection is your summer dream incarnate — and your only problem will be picking a favorite.
Summer's a time to revel in the simple things. Long mornings lounging on a screened-in porch, luxurious afternoons perched poolside with a cold drink in hand, and evenings spent lingering at the dinner table as conversations draw on. It's all about making the most of the season during which life seems to slow down, so getting dressed each day should be just as easy. That's the idea behind Dôen's latest collection, which dropped May 21 and heralds the coming season with sweet, simple silhouettes that are ready for a summer spent celebrating life's little joys.
Fans of Dôen may take issue with its Summer 2019 drop — but in the best way possible. As the brand's biggest launch to date, it'll be that much harder to narrow down your list of favorites, inevitably leaving you wanting more (and more) after you attempt to sensibly select just a few pieces. Tough choices aside, with so many summer-ready styles to choose from the new drop is a sure answer to warm-weather dressing that'll help you make the most of sunny summer days. In other words, this collection is not to be missed.
Easy, multi-purpose pieces feature prominently in Dôen's summer drop, like the $198 Whisper Dress that's ideal for languid mornings spent lounging with a book or tucking into bed after a long day in the sun, and tops like the pretty plaid Acacia, $125, that can take you from midday meetings to golden hour cocktails on the porch.
Plenty of casual pieces are included in the collection to make summer mornings even easier, like throw-on-and-go blouses (see the Tangelo Top, $138) and cool cropped pants like this striped Bianca pair, $158. Plus, a range of on-trend accessories like the Bare Sandal for $168 and the natural, woven Small Catalina Bag, $58, provide versatile options you can easily transition from day to night.
Staple dresses in the sweet, feminine prints that Dôen is known for are peppered throughout, and pretty much cover all your bases for summer dressing — the Mariposa dress, $298, in the Canyon Floral pattern is sure to be a favorite. The brand's lace-trimmed $428 Byron Dress, on the other hand, presents a more prim, precious option that's still just as wearable for any number of summer occasions, from a backyard dinner party to a date-night sunset stroll.
