Is your summer calendar starting to fill up with weddings,
graduations, vacation plans, and parties?!?! 
 It's never too early to plan your outfits for wedding season (or any event you have this summer).  We always say you should be the second best dressed guest at the wedding!
Here are our picks for perfect party dresses:
This is our pick for the perfect dress for all your summer events. From graduations to a beach wedding to a night out with the girls. 
This sophisticated dress from Samuel Dong is very Mad Men with it's exaggerated bow and bold color (this season's hottest trend!). Love!  
Think you can't wear a belt?
Think again - here are a few tips to try!

1. Wear a belt outside of the loops of your pants, cinch a sweater, a slouchy tee, or a billowing blouse. Even try it over your jacket for a more tailored look.

2. Wear your belt on your true waist (as opposed to the top of your pants) to create a feminine silhouette. A low-slung contour belt gives you a long lean look so you don't look "cut in half".

3. Pick a belt in a bright color, python, or one with studs to get a touch of the latest style without buying a whole new outfit. Easy and less expensive!

4. Wear a belt instead of jewelry.  Don't pile on the necklaces when going this route - it will take the attention away from your waist.
January Jones does it right with a simple black belt and no jewelry.
