A standout look doesn’t have to be complicated. With the right dress — like this vibrant zip-up — your outfit can say it all. “Bandage dresses are a must for warmer weather,” says Press. “Plus, they’re breathable and super-comfortable.” To complete the look, keep accessories simple and finish with neutral-colored metallic pumps.

She’s an edgy girl — she wants to make a statement.” To balance an oval-shaped face, amp up your hair’s volume and add depth by highlighting it with three variations of your natural color — copper and bronze are used here. To retain curls, apply a curling cream to roots while hair is damp and dry with a diffuser. Be careful not to scrunch the curls — “you don’t want to overwork them,” says Press — and blow out the front for super strong bangs. Use a round brush to soften the crown area for extra volume, and hold with working spray.
