The Piece: MM6 navy slit-shoulder long-sleeve dress, featuring an elasticized waist and an element of sharp cutouts; available now for $200
The Street and Runway Inspiration: No season lends itself to liberated dressing quite like summer. While floral maxi-dresses and thigh-baring cut-offs are obvious classics, they can feel trite. Keeping it dark with a minimalist cut-out piece is appealingly directional. Think clean slashes that speak of strength.
