Editors’ Picks are the Fashionista team’s true (#notspon) fashion and beauty obsessions, handpicked by professionals who see it all. 

I have a friend getting married this year, and I’m preparing for her bachelorette trip this summer. Am I thrilled to celebrate her? Yes! Am I also encountering a few existential thoughts, the kind that naturally come around as you get older and watch friends start this new chapter? Duh. But I’m distracting myself with shopping — and I want to shout from the rooftops about a dress I found for our beach getaway.

I recently stumbled into Andrea Iyamah‘s boutique in New York (379 Bleecker St.), and found something I haven’t been able to get off my mind since: the Egu dress, made from a cotton-blend mesh fabric in a butter-yellow hue. It boasts draping, wooden beads hanging from the flared sleeves and a boned, corseted bodice.

To me, this a must for any warm-weather vacation wardrobe. Andrea Iyamah, after all, excels in creating elegant and bold clothes for the fashionable wayfarer. It makes me feel good when I’m wearing it, and it doesn’t take up too much space in my suitcase — win, win.
