There’s something special about a dress in the summer. They’re easy, they keep you cool, and you don’t have to worry about a full outfit. After all, dresses are outfits by themselves. We’re not that into shorts anymore, so our summer wardrobe is full of the kind of easy dresses that we can wear to the grocery store or to the pool. Something that’s casual enough to just throw on with sneakers or sandals, but nice enough to get us through a long, white-wine soaked lunch with friends.
Starting with the most casual of the bunch, this Ralph Lauren t-shirt dress in a pretty blue is perfect for the morning coffee run.
Tibi continues our love affair with the shirtdress thanks to this interesting, structural piece from Tibi. The uneven hem and canvas belt effortlessly capitalize on the utilitarian trend, and works just as well with flip flops as sneakers.
Mango is our fast-fashion go-to for easy, elegant pieces in neutrals. This dress from in a lovely tan with floral embroidery across the sleeves and shoulders is a perfect example of everything they do so well. At such an affordable pice, it’s a must have.
