How to Dress for Tomato Season

Mustard yellows, deep greens, and fiery reds. Rattan bags. Wide-brimmed hats. Short nails. Here's a bit of sartorial inspo for the last, ripe days of summer.

It’s important to note that tomato season has a distinct color palette. The colors of late summer are thick, heavy, and hot. I imagine sunburned skin, juicy ripe tomatoes, and coveted shady dark green havens. Everything feels very alive, though not in the zippy ways it does in April. Tomato season is about a slow and syrupy aliveness, and the saturated colors that represent that to me are mustardy and marigold yellows, deep and luscious greens, and carnelian reds.

Now let’s get to the accessories.
