What LoveShackFancy’s Rebecca Hessel Cohen Thinks You Should Wear This Summer

Rebecca Hessel Cohen is the former fashion and beauty editor of Cosmopolitan and designer behind label-of-the-moment LoveShackFancy. She shares everything you need to know about summer party dressing …

What would you wear as a guest to a wedding? I adore so many pieces, but this season I absolutely love the Angie dress in a dusty pastel floral. Given our fickle Irish climate, what cover-up would you bring? The feminine Rosie cropped sweater, worn over the shoulders. Or, our hand-appliquéd mohair bobble sweater with ruffle edges layered over a long dress and paired with a pretty umbrella! I always bring a few dresses, both long and short and pair with a sweater or light jacket. LoveShackFancy’s designs work equally well on holiday, in the city or at a party. I’ve designed the collection with a true bohemian spirit in mind. Each piece, from daywear to eveningwear, can be thrown on to go from beach to summer parties. For a big night out, I love a layered look. I’ll throw a skirt over a dress or one of our printed slip dresses under a transparent dress for a look that’s chic yet effortless. You love to travel. What key pieces do you always pack? I’m always looking for pieces that I can toss in my bag and throw on over my swimsuit. I’m really into a matching top and midi skirt which can be worn together or separately with a bikini top or bottom. Plus, anyone who knows me, knows that I’m never without tons of accessories, ribbons, baskets, and bows.
