Dress Code

For some, school uniforms were oppressive tools of the machine. For you, they were a blank canvas begging for safety pins, Wite-Out, and an armful of slap bracelets.

Then you graduated, and your style fell apart. (R.I.P. speedy mornings when all you had to do was gulp oatmeal and accessorize.)

You’ll be top of the class again with help from up-and-coming designer Rory Edelman, whose silky lounge dresses are a one-shot deal. The 24-year-old’s new summer collection combines the breezy aesthetic of L.A. with a dash of posh preppie (she trained at design schools in London and Boston).

We especially love the gray Henley tunic and the airy lipstick pink minidress. A little sultry, a little demure — and you’re morning-, noon-, or night-ready in a flash.

All you have to worry about are the trimmings.
