It’s long been said you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day, but we’re not there yet, and you’re free to wear as much white this summer as you can stand.

With COVID1-19 restrictions coming to a close and vaccinated smiles filling the streets, we’re feeling freer this summer than ever before. We want to celebrate on the beach, with friends at brunch and family barbecues across the country. Heck, we’d like to leave the country, while we’re at it.

With all that exploring and socializing to do, we want to make sure we’re looking our best. We’ve had no reason to get all dressed up in more than a year, and you can’t stop us now. Luckily, Modern Luxury’s Fashion Director of Custom Publishing and Branded Content, Faye Power Vande Vrede, hand-picked her favorite summer styles to help you move through the world’s big season back out with grace and poise—well, as far as your looks are concerned. The conversations are up to you.
