BCBGMAXAZRIA: Figure-Flattering Frocks and Game-Changing Accessories

If there’s one thing I love, it’s an excuse to squeeze in any last-chance summer additions to my ever-growing wardrobe – and the flirty summer-to-fall frocks in our BCBGMAXAZRIA Boutique are making my case for a walk-in closet all the more pressing. Unfortunately, I might have to wait on that Pinterest-inspired closet (sigh), but who says I can’t add a dose of easy Parisian panache to the mix in the meantime? Especially when investing in some (or all) of these artfully draped dresses and have-to-have-them accessories means I’ll get more mileage out of my wardrobe in the months to come.

But let’s be real, if I had to choose just three, these BCBGMAXAZRIA goodies would easily find their place in my not-so-walk-in closet.

1. “Ana” Leather Clutch – Not only is this clutch an of-the-moment hunter green, but it’s the perfect pop of color to take any outfit from sweet to sophisticated. Bonus? It easily transitions from summer to fall to winter. Talk about a triple threat.

2. “Myrna” Black Belted Zipper Dress – This drapey number gives my typical black sheath a run for its money with a waist-cinching belt and edgy zippered trim.

3. “Jenesis” Bright Purple One Side Jersey Dress – Just as versatile as an LBD (and a dash more interesting), this purple wrap-front dress will become my secret weapon. Work appropriate, figure flattering, and party perfect? I must be dreaming.

Shop summer-to-fall dresses and accessories during our BCBGMAXAZRIA Boutique opening Tuesday, August 21, at 11AM ET.
