When she's not working with big names like Lupita Nyong'o, Jennifer Hudson and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional's perspective.
Every woman should have a handful of foolproof outfit combinations that lend a flattering look every time. Whether it's a simple denim-and-duster combination for autumn or today's slimming summer outfit, every season you should have a go-to look that makes you feel your best. The one warm-weather combination I always recommend to my clients is a dress that cinches at the waist, like an A-line silhouette, stylish espadrilles for some height and comfort and a great pair of sunglasses to polish off the simple look. It's an effortless outfit that flatters all body types and makes for a stylish summer look.
