Princess Kate Inspiration Lacey Dress -
by Ida Hsiang
It's wedding season and many of us have a good friend or even a BFF that's tying the knot this summer. We know it's rude to try and upstage the bride, but that doesn't mean we can't still dress to impress (afterall, we may meet our own Prince Charming there!). Just keep silhouettes simple but striking and add a little bit of bling that'll help you stand out in your accessories. ThisNext Lifestyle Tastemaker, Jo Gartin, inspires us with her picks on getting ready for your best friends bridal bash in style.

DESIGNER: Rachel ComeyINSPIRATION: The cool indie-spirited girl that Comey always designs for.TOP LOOKS: A high-waisted white cotton skirt with matching vest and diaphanous blouse with bandeau top; breezy bow blouses with short shorts; a cropped tank top with a button front high-waisted black skirt; bustier top dresses that were flowy and asymmetrical at the bottom; lots of mixed printsACCESSORIES: The designer's own selection of sandals in the form of lace-up flats and wedges, platform booties, and thick heeled open toe shoesWHO WAS THERE: Plaid-meister Steven Alan, Cathy Horyn from The New York TimesWHAT WE THOUGHT: It's always nice to watch a show where a designer knows their target customer and hits the bulls eye. As the parade of very wearable pieces went down the runway - breezy white dresses and tops, silk plaid blouses and shorts, sweet halter dresses, and even a darling Chloe-esque summer suit - you could envision the girl who buys Rachel Comey's clothes. She seems, to this reviewer anyway, to embody a Zooey Deschanel-like charm and quirkiness. And she would probably scoop up everything that Comey showed. Brought to you by our friends from Stylelist!
