Here on the East Coast, we have two seasons: wintry mix (cold and gray, cold and rainy, or cold and snowy), and summer, where it is miserably hot and sticky. Sometimes, spring will tease us with light breezes and beautiful patio weather, but that respite is brief, and soon enough it’s killer hot all-the-time .
This summer, and year, the Bitches are all about casual cool attire. Light cotton frocks, denim jackets, converse sneaks, stylish backpacks. Because, we prefer to be stylish and smiling at all times—rather than grimacing as that pesky pencil skirt sticks to our legs and silk blouses refuse to breathe.
In the summer, a smart woman knows her best asset is a flattering, all-purpose maxi dress. A maxi dress is perfect to throw on to run errands, to dress up with jewelry and cute flats for brunch, or to wear over a swimsuit with a Panama hat and big sunnies to the Penthouse Pool in Washington or the SoHo House in New York. (Snag a membership to the Penthouse Pool with no sign-up fee by using the promo code “BITCHES” on the Bitches Who Brunch discount page.)
Maxi dresses are perfect for summer travel—whether by car, train, airplane, or the Hamptons jitney—just throw on neutral sandals, a linen scarf, and your favorite jean jacket. And, you’ll be set for an evening out with your denim topper and a pair of espadrilles.
Right now, we’re coveting solid, go-with-everything maxis in greys, blues and neutral hues in slid colors and stripes for consummate summer wardrobe staple.
Happy shopping. Stay cool, kittens.
