SUMMER'S SEXIEST LOOKS
Long hot nights and blue-sky days of summer garner a lot of sultry heat, both in your wardrobe and in your romantic life. Fashion’s first sign of summer - the Coachella festival - always sparks dreams of warm weather dressing with gamine celebs sporting the season’s hottest skin-baring looks. And the spate of outdoor concerts to follow, combining stylish it-girls with cute musicians, is just the way to get in the mood for summer love. But this year, our hearts belong to sophisticated gingham and Grecian mini skirts. So long to sunny standbys such as tanks and flip-flops. Take note of this summer’s sexy style hit list.
