If you just gasped at the sight of these ($110), it’s a clear indication you want... or, um, “need” them. And if you're thinking the splurge won’t last beyond this summer, think again because they’re versatile enough to wear into fall. You love? OMG, how can you not? GET IT: GAP (1120 Connecticut Ave. N.W.)

Look classy yet mod in this wrap dress ($225) -- it's a waist cincher (major plus!) and its lively yellow lace just pops against the gray sheath underneath. Dress it up with wedges for an I'm-ready-for-brunch-OR-date-night! summer look. A white clutch wouldn't hurt either! GET IT: Lettie Gooch (1517 U St. N.W.)

When you think of hues for summer, army green is probably far from the top of your list. Think coral, aqua, canary yellow and white... pretty, sunny and vivid, right? But then there's this safari-esque shirtdress ($435). And following the rules is sooo unoriginal, right? GET IT: Intermix (3222 M St. N.W.)

The thought of actually wearing a romper probably brings back memories of riding a bike with pink tassels on the handlebars. But fear not: Romper actually can work for adults these days, and casual has never looked so cute. GET IT: Urban Outfitters (3111 M St. N.W.; 737 7th St. N.W.)

If you have an all-white, Diddy-style party to attend this season, don’t make an entrance looking like everyone else. A Grecian one-shoulder dress ($396) should do the trick.The draped skirt and fringed trim makes this a showstopper. Just don't go for the golden-leaf crown. GET IT: Cusp (3030 M St. N.W.)

There’s nothing brighter and bolder than a ravishing red skirt ($58). Its color speaks volume, so keep the top simple. Be warned: The line between a fashion faux pas and a successful fashion risk is very thin! GET IT: Urban Outfitters (3111 M St. N.W.; 737 7th St. N.W.)
