Dallas summers are sweltering, and white is the color of cool. Fluid frocks are perfect for a walk in the park or tearing up the dance floor. Accessorize a simple white dress with crystal-adorned Lucite bangles or a vintage beaded cardigan. Hair is wavy and tame for a laid-back yet glamorous look for evening. Add a touch of color with ravishing red lipstick and a strappy heel.

IF YOU LIKE PINA COLADAS
Rekindle summer lovin’ with L’Artisan’s Ananas Fizz.
Refreshing scents of Victoria pineapple, grapefruit, and orange with
hints of creamy cocoa milk, vanilla, and a splash of rum come together
in a fruity cocktail that reminds us of lazy days on the beach. The
limited-edition pineapple-topped bottle looks pretty on your dresser,
even if you never see the ocean. ($110/Neiman Marcus).
