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.
There’s no mistaking the cool factor of Kaylee Tankus’ latest. Dark-colored wools and jerseys are unusually draped to form sculptural tops and dresses. Crinkled trenches, tissue-thin blazers, and slouchy knits complement this anything-but-basic lot, along with several contrast-panel leggings and bucket-pocket shorts.
Spot a piece that has your name on it? Snag it before it's too late—each item in this assortment is the only one left of its kind. Check back throughout the day for new styles, from versatile accessories perfect for the workday to dresses and layer-friendly separates you'll live in all season long.
These flirty frocks and breezy tops are easy to fall in love with. Sharp tailoring elevates these pieces into something unmistakably fresh, and a restrained palette lets the modern silhouettes shine.
