Days are getting longer, people are going out, and we’re feeling the tug of fresh summer fashion. With a few effortlessly pulled-together outfits on deck, you’ll be ready to go everywhere, from gallery hopping to sidewalk café, elegant brunch to Broadway—looking and feeling wonderful.
Cool, calm and collectible. That’s the new URBAN SUMMER, a group of smooth woven cottons and dreamy jersey knits with a clean aesthetic, each promising amazing style and comfort, city or not. Find ultra-modern classics you’ll wear season after season, in chic monotone shades with a pop of 2022’s hottest hue: Terracotta. All are mindfully designed to look gorgeous on every body, and cut to fit US sizes 4 to 22.
I’ve never said, “I’m a dress gal” but as I get older, I appreciate the one-and-done aspect of a great dress more than ever. When it’s gorgeous and comfy, it’s a must. And when it works its way into every corner of life, from office to afterwards and beyond, with just a quick change of heels, I’m a very happy camper.
This collection has 8 dresses! I had a hard time choosing an editor’s pick, so here are two… But be sure to view all of them when you finish up here!
Dress Pick #1:
The URBAN EASE SHIRTDRESS is impeccably tailored to fool the eye with the look of layers in one easy piece. It has a jersey bodice with chic cutaway detail and woven poplin sleeves for a pop of contrast. The poplin button-down skirting has a slight A-line shape for freedom of movement and long strides when you’re on-the-go. Adjust the buttons to let breezes blow.
Dress Pick #2:
The URBAN BLISS DRESS is an effortless jersey pullover in a knee-grazing length with a relaxed fit for great movement. The jersey has a beautiful hand feel and caresses every curve. It’s worth mentioning that this is a lightweight knit, but not at all flimsy. And Hagar cuts knits like nobody else, to provide just the right amount of airflow. Layer it up with leggings or dress it up with a chunky necklace and heels. Summer is all about embracing loose, flowy styles, so check out the video and make your move. Good news: It comes in black, too.
Editor’s Pick, Shirt & Pants:
My favorite top and bottom (this week!) are both simply chic, cut from pure woven cotton, and are as cool as a cucumber on a hot summer day…
The URBAN PERFECT SHIRT is the answer when you can’t find the right top. Its amiable nature makes it indispensable for a relaxed yet neat look, with literally any pants or skirt, season after season—especially when the sun comes out and breathability is key. Turn the collar up, rock a half tuck and take on the day like a champ.
Beneath, Maya is wearing URBAN BREEZE PANTS, tailored to attract second glances with articulated detail at the voluminous leg. These pants are so unique and chic, they may not look like basics—but because they are so cool and comfy, they behave like basics, even when you dress them up for special occasions. Whether you choose earthy terracotta, the color trend I can’t stop talking about, or summer’s must-have white, expect comfort and compliments. It’s a win-win.
PS: A note on footwear… Clean white kicks are a must and look great with everything in the URBAN SUMMER COLLECTION. To be sure your tootsies feel as comfy as your Alembika, get a good pair and wear them with everything. Ahhh… Summer in the city.
