Shades Of Sunset

Jonathan Saunders Silk Dresses

So fashion intends, no sooner are we settling into a season’s sartorial offerings than we are looking ahead to the next round of trends. Keeping us on our toes, Jonathan Saunders’ pre-fall collection relies on a mostly-summer palette while teasing at autumn’s textures and layers. Honing in on two distinctively inspiring looks, the British designer’s Adelphi Dress and Mary Dress are a vision in their column silhouettes with au courant prints.

A perfect portrayal of Saunders’ collection as a whole, which is a modern take on mid-century panache, these sister frocks will definitely influence our wardrobe in the upcoming months. Made of 100% silk in halter and shift shapes, respectively, with belting at their waists, they are best worn as seen on the runway: understatedly with ankle booties and slick-straight hair. Though, until fall graces us with cooler temps, we suggest subbing the boots for a pair of pointed sandals. Add a leather clutch as a final touch and you’ll walk off into the sunset, be it this season or next, in sophisticated style.
