We love a party – especially on a warm evening under the trees, with a delicious cocktail and a chic summer dress. The key to making a party feel like a party right from the start: Be mindful of the details. A signature drink in a beautiful glass goes a long way towards charming even the dullest guest; equally flattering light (candles if you can swing it) and delicious, easy-to-eat food on real plates with real cutlery and cloth napkins. Whether a 50-person soiree or a 3-person deck chair meeting, these stylish essentials guarantee relaxation, enchantment and a festive mood.
The (sparkling) aperitif
Light and fresh, this summery take on Chandons sparkling wine is made with homemade bitters made from locally grown oranges. Poured on ice with a piece of fresh orange and a sprig of rosemary it is the perfect summer sip.

The (simple) breathtaking dress
Printed in a beautiful blue-green with a summery floral pattern, this floating silhouette made of 100 percent cotton with a halter-style top and a tiered skirt says: “I’ve dressed a little and I’m ready to have fun.”

The sexy strappy
These sleek, minimalist Goop exclusive sandals are incredibly soft underfoot and the straps are leather-lined for a snug fit; the chic beige contrasts with the dark (italian) leather sole.
Amanu sandals with black soles, $ 325
The lip color
It looks bright in the adorable tube, but this citrus-like balm is super-transparent; the translucent color brightens the whole face (also on the cheeks) in seconds, but looks totally natural on the lips and skin.
