Zimmermann’s swimwear and resort-style women’s clothing evoke the laid-back yet cosmopolitan vibe of Sydney, Australia, the hometown of label founders (and sisters) Nicky and Simone Zimmermann. Launched in 1991, Zimmermann features sumptuous designer dresses, leather shoes and bags, and other fashion essentials that are casual enough for a beach stroll, yet sophisticated enough for a special occasion dinner. Beautiful floral prints and softly draping fabrics make ultra-feminine styles like the Chelsea scallop playsuit (a short, bright-floral romper with frilly trim) and floral cotton “Posy” maxi dress perfect for breezy summer days and weekend relaxation. From silky ruched mini dresses to classic bikinis and tanks, Zimmermann puts the Land Down Under on top.
The Ultimate Dress Shop: Little White DressesNow's the time to send your LBD on vacation and embrace the just-as-versatile warm-weather version: The Little White Dress. Whether you opt for crisp cotton or soft, feminine lace, this seasonal staple will carry you through just about any occasion the outdoor season brings (and no, you don't have to wait until after Memorial Day to wear it!). Take it to a polished, sophisticated place with a tailored blazer and heels, or get into the music festival groove by adding a boho twist. And as late spring days stretch into lovely, long summer ones, the only accessory you'll need is glowing skin.
