Summer's one big ice cream dream. When the sun's beating down on us and the heat just won't subside during these final long days of summer, we all scream for ice cream. Giant swirls of sherbet, colorful icy slushies, ice cream sandwiches, and refreshing granitas- it all tickles our fancy and we're hard-pressed to choose just one indulgent treat. The same goes for our ice cream inspired palette- we Pick Six for this week's sweet selection. Treat yourself!
This vibrant vintage silk chiffon dress in a watery ombré is a wearable Slurpee. We love the bold, bright mix of colors with the contrast of the lush velvet tie belt that defines the waist. We imagine wearing this dress on a fun date night ending in a shared snow cone.
This hot coral Mary McFadden gown is an electric creamsicle that we can't get enough of. With a sequined, beaded bodice that appears to be covered in feathers, the result is both light and bold all at the same time. Great for a formal summer event, we'd wear this flattering piece to stand out from the crowd.
A confection of fluffy hot pink feathers and pleats by Lee Jordan satisfies our sweet tooth like the coconut-covered clouds of our youth. The trapeze cut floats away from the body with ease, while the ostrich feather hem adds a little frivolous fun, accentuating the swing silhouette.
Milky pastels make up this striped Richilene set. Sequin "sprinkles" decorate the entire jacket and dress bodice in a cotton candy palette. We love the statement this sweet set makes, and would be just as excited to wear each piece separately to wear it as many times as possible!
You can't go wrong with this classic vanilla Mary McFadden gown; there's a reason vanilla is a timeless gold standard. With a few embellishments, this simple column sheath is elevated to Game Of Thrones wedding status.
This sequined dress by Judy Hornby is a sugar-coated plum fantasy. Clear iridescent sequins sparkle like sanding sugar on a pastel sherbet-hued base. A plunging scoop back keeps the look from giving us a toothache, and we love how the pointed hem cuts through the sweetness. We'd eat it all up.
