What: Recently launched haberdashery Dapper+Dash specializes in terminally fabulous Brad Goreski's favorite accessory: the bow tie. In three deliciously dandy styles (named Huckleberry, Churchill, and Dagwood), the neckwear is made from repurposed and vintage materials. Our current fave is the Huckleberry in this nautical navy print with gold chains.

Style It: We couldn't help but style this gentleman's gear à la Diane Keaton. The lady sure knows how to wear a tie, so we chose to play off of her penchant for masculine wear with touches of bright, light femininity.
Beginning with the outfit's neutral foundation, we chose a Michael Kors button-down in an airy off-white cotton and brown Ancient Greek Sandals' leather strappers with Amphitrite-inspired wave details capped with a summery straw fedora from Eugenia Kim with pleated black satin trim.
From there, we tacked candy reds, pinks, and oranges onto the bland canvas with Antik Batik tomato red silk crepe slouchy pants, Selima Optique Tiffany blue and salmon striped cat-eye sunglasses, and a tangelo leather trimmed neoprene tote from McQ Alexander McQueen. Add a Kenneth Jay Lane gold-plated alligator bracelet for some sparkle -- and to bring the waterborne theme full circle.
