Ah, summer. The first day is June 21st, but don't wait till then to wear this delectable lemon concoction by Loris Azzaro. When the heat is on, the lemonade stands come to your street corners, but if you really want to "aid" someone and quench a different type of thirst, throw on this signature metallic lurex knit and yellow jersey empire waist dress. This trumps any "Hot Dog on a Stick" Muscle Beach Lemonade. So many reasons why we love this dress: The color is tangy; the dress is summer travel friendly (it's light as a feather); the cut is incredibly flattering (hello, empire waist!); the dress can be worn high-octane glam with big Capri-purchased jewels and Louboutins, or, dress her down with a pair of Havaianas and a ponytail. The metallic lurex knit is a signature of Monsieur Azzaro. Initially developed for Tina Turner and worn by Brigette Bardot in the late 1960s, this technique is iconic by Azzaro, who we refer to as the French Halston. This dress may be bright and happy, but it loves the night life, too!
