Sex Things Up With Our Summer Party Lookbook.

Long weekends rule. Long weekends that officially kick off the summer season? They just rule even harder.
Yeah, Memorial Day is an exciting time. And, OK, sometimes a sloppy one, too. But that's half the fun of the holiday. It's half the fun of summer, too. Pool-partying, bozzing around the barbecue, day-drinking -- it's all fair game in this hottest of seasons. Too bad it's not always easy to handle the heat, though. Use it to your advantage and you'll look hot. Miss your chance and you'll just look like a hot mess.
Us? We'd prefer you look your best. And that brings us to this, our summer party lookbook, in which we aim to help you look your hottest in the heat. So check it out. Then head on over to our favorite local boutiques -- VOD, Milk &Honey, Elements, Centre and the newly opened Haven -- and start filling your summer closet with these looks.
Just don't forget the beer run on the way home.
