ESSENCE Festival is officially here and it's time to bring out your best looks! Grab some outfit inspiration from our favorite stylish ladies. From chic summer frocks to sultry night on the town dresses, these are the style that will turn heads this weekend.
When looking for a pretty yet breathable look, go for a soft eyelet dress to get the job done.
Take a cue from Regina Hall and go for a bold print, this allows you to make a statement even if the cut of the dress isn't elaborate.
A white linen dress is perfect for balmy New Orleans days. Add a little life to the look with colorful, intricate accessories.
Another way to stay cool and cute is to opt for a off-the-shoulder moment.
