LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE – With its Peter Pan collar, cap sleeves, and delicate pin-tucked bodice, Lorick’s brilliant yellow silk crêpe dress, paired with ballet flats and delicate jewelry, could easily just play nice. But why stop there when bronze platform gladiator sandals and a thick stack of bangles can step things up for this otherwise street frock?

FLIP SIDE – Because nobody ever said that handsome and sense of humor couldn’t coexist: Ben Sherman’s navy pin-striped shirt comes with a tie that’s cut from the same cloth. Its skinny shape lends a punky feel that’s anything but buttoned-up. SHIRT AND TANNER BELT, BLAKE; KASIL JEANS, NORDSTROM; WESC HEADPHONES, LOCAL 35

CONCRETE JUNGLE – Gym-issue gray fleece graduates to the next level when Triple Five soul cuts it into a shaped, strapless dress.

DRESS, WESC WINDBREAKER, UMBRO PRINT HIGH-TOPS, LOCAL 35; ZODIAC DIVE WATCH, NORDSTROM; SILVER HOOP EARRINGS, GYPSY CHIC.
