Designer Rachel Roy got her start in the fashion world as a magazine and music video stylist, and quickly made her mark with her rich color palettes and combinations of textures. Since launching her namesake collection of women’s clothing and accessories in 2005, she's consistently demonstrated her flair for crafting dresses, shoes, jewelry, and handbags that balance boldness and personality with subtlety and sophistication. Contemporary silhouettes have become Roy’s signature: Demure, refined, and a bit mysterious, her cropped herringbone trousers, sultry silk blouses, curve-skimming sheaths, and other designs are for modern, urban women. Raised in California and now based in New York City, Roy is of Dutch and Indian descent. Her fan base includes none other than First Lady Michelle Obama, who has worn Roy’s dresses to conferences, interviews with Barbara Walters, and even to the State of the Union address.

The Ultimate Dress Shop: The SheathSay hello to summer's most versatile, timelessly chic piece: The sheath dress. Like all of the best-designed objects, its brilliance lies in its simplicity. A slim cut flatters every figure, while an unfussy silhouette makes it wearable everywhere from the office to date night. Start with one that flaunts your favorite assets—a V-neck for dècolletage, a higher hemline for legs—then dress it up or down to suit every occasion. A tailored blazer adds instant sophistication; statement jewelry takes it to ultra-glam territory. We dare you to find somewhere you can't wear yours this season.
