When you are in the midst of all things summer—pool parties, beach trips, music festivals and whatnot—it is hard to keep up with the fast-paced world of fashion. That’s where out monthly installment of The Hot List comes in! We have scoped out all the major happenings in the fashion world for July—from what to wear, what to read, what to experiment with, what to sign up to, and more! On that note, if you are ready for your fashion fix, here is everything you need to know in July!
Coach Poppy Flower
There is no quicker way to reinvent yourself than with a new scent. (After all, as Coco Chanel once said, a woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.) On that note, let us introduce you to Coach Poppy Flower, a fruity new fragrance with notes of blackcurrant, jasmine, rose, sugared raspberries, and apricot. Coach Poppy Flower will be available towards the end of the month.

If you love Marni, you are going to die for Marni Foulard, the lower-priced apparel and accessories line from Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni. You can expect bright and bold patterns on a range of items—including silk scarves, bangles, handbags, and luxe separates. As Castiglioni says, “Foulard is a flirtatious little love poem.” The Foulard collection is available now at Marni.com. Prices start at around $115.
MAC Semi Precious
Taking inspiration from four gems—bronzite, black tourmaline, gold pyriate, and lilac lepidolite—MAC Cosmetics has created the Semi Precious collection, a range of jewel-toned lipsticks, lip glosses, blushes, marbled eyeshadows, and more. The highlight? The 12 new shades of eyeshadow, which include Unsurpassable and Hint Of Sapphire (pictured). The Semi Precious collection is available now at MAC stores, as well as online at MACCosmetics.com. Prices range from $14 to $47.
Bvlgari: The Book
Bvlgari: 125 Years of Italian Magnificence, a new coffee-table tome, is an all-access pass inside the world of the famed Italian jewelry house. Filled with colorful illustrations, the book traces the history of the stories house and showcases over 300 pieces from the early days at Bvlgari, in the 1880s, through to today. Bonus: the book is written by Amanda Triossi, the curator of the Bvlgari vintage collection. Pick up your copy at Amazon.com for $48.94.
The couture collections wrapped up in Paris on Thursday and there was plenty to discuss. Dior showed its first runway collection since the departure of John Galliano, Giambattista Valli showed its first collection in the Galerie de la Madeleine, and Chanel showed a collection that featured glow-in-the-dark shoes. The highlight, however, was the Azzedine Alaïa show—the first runway show held by the house in eight years.
