turns up the temperature in pants that let you breathe, eye-popping tunics and fun, mixed-up necklaces.
This ravishing little number is from dress maven Diane von Furstenberg ($385), a woman who knows how to do flattering.

And its dual personality—the bottom layer is an animal-print cotton; the top, a subtly patterned silk chiffon—makes it an excellent day-to-night dress. Lipton likes the tawny colors: "Something warm and light around your face is really important." Shoes, Jonathan Kelsey.
