Outfit of the Week: A Summer Picnic Outfit With a Rocker Edge

No wonder designers like Derek Lam took to gingham in a big way this summer: It’s the ideal, all-American print to wear this season. We love the idea of pairing Zara’s version (which sports a cutout back and a midi-length skirt) with bold colors and accessories, like the slate blue of these Rupert Sanderson heels, and cheeky lipstick-red Charlotte Olympia clutch. And as far as polish goes, try something that clashes a bit, like a slick electric navy blue to give the look a bit of edge.

 Yves Saint Laurent ‘La Laque Couture’ Nail Lacquer 51 Bleu Cyclades, $27 at Nordstroms; Spitfire Local Knowledge Square Sunglasses, $41.92 at Asos; Charlotte Olympia Kiss Purse, $490 at Net-a-porter; American Apparel Reversible Leather Belt, $26 at American Apparel; Rupert Sanderson Joan Cage Front Sandals, $350 at Moda Operandi; Zara Checkered Dress with Elastic Waist, $79.90 at Zara.
