The Kaylee Tankus girl is no homebody. Struck by the color of the sky shimmering through dense clouds of mist on a trip to Eastern Europe in 2004, Korean designer Kay Lee appended “Tankus” to her nascent label’s name — the Lithuanian word for “dense.” Done in shades of gray and black, Kaylee Tankus pieces include draped dresses, drop-crotch pants, and oversize coats that are decidedly conceptual, and appealing to a young, modern, international set. But these architectural silhouettes are never too extreme and are always wearable, creating a unique fusion of East and West.
Our Women’s Style Director Tammy Eckenswiller has some invaluable advice for anyone who’s got a wedding to dress for this summer. Good timing, as it's officially wedding season—which, more often than not, means a considerable amount of wardrobe anxiety for all involved. With that in mind, we've rounded up a selection of dresses and grouped them into categories to help you on your way. Wondering how short is too short? What style of shoe to wear in the sand? What “black-tie optional” really means? Read on.
Many a great outfit is built atop the just-right white shirt. We've compiled numerous examples of our favorites for you to choose from. From fitted to flowing, collared to boatneck, these shirts from brands like Steven Alan, Alexander Wang, Diesel, and more, are the perfect start to your perfect outfit.
Work-appropriate ensembles don’t have to be stuffy, as evidenced by the chic pieces in our array of office-ready picks. Go for shrunken blazers, silk shorts, and slingback pumps, all of which toe the line between dutifully professional and distinctly fashion-forward—a winning combination if ever there was one.
Meet the new romantic! A marriage of traditionally feminine and tough details give this crop of dresses, separates and accessories a distinctly modern appeal. Bows, lace and rosettes adorn dangerously high stilettos; drapey silk chiffon tops are less romantic thanks to dangling chain links; and a ruffled silk dress feels more punk than girly when rendered in eye-popping fluorescent pink. There is plenty to fall in love with.
