Snap out of that outfit rut. We've partnered with
LOFT to help you freshen up your Summer wardrobe.
Figuring out what to wear on a normal day is hard enough. But creating an outfit to wear for a special event? Even tougher. While it might be easier to fall back on your usual LBD, there's nothing like a fresh outfit to make you feel ready for a fun-filled season ahead. We asked fashion editors from both coasts to share their ideal ensemble for an exciting Summer occasion. From a romantic outdoor movie night to an afternoon in wine country, see their sartorial selections ahead and get inspired for your next adventure.

Escape town for an evening like our NYC-based assistant editor Samantha, and head to the Hamptons to wine and dine.
"A pair of
casual linen pants in a fun striped pattern is the perfect piece for the more relaxed vibe of the Hamptons. To dress them up for a night out, I'd add a pair of lace-up heels and a slinky silk tank."

Take notes from our assistant editor Stephanie and hit up the many outdoor activities your city has to offer this season, like
movie nights in the park, food truck festivals, or carnivals.
"In a city like San Francisco or New York, dressing for comfort and versatility are key. Jeans are a must for sitting in the grass, while a
loose tank provides easy movement. I always like to add delicate gold jewelry, and I never forget a jacket for when the temperature inevitably drops!"

Nothing captures the spirit of Summer more than an afternoon spent sipping Rosé. Follow our editor Rebecca's lead and carve out some time to go wine tasting.

delicate romper paired with the rocker boots is the perfect casual combination for spending a beautiful day wine tasting. Don't forget the sunglasses!"
