      Why: Perfect dresses are a girl’s best friend when summer hits. Having easy-to-wear frocks that can take you from work to patio parties means more time spent enjoying the sun and less time spent stressing about what to wear. Check out this gorgeous sheath dress with sweet ruffles. The shoulder detail is like an accessory in itself, so you can keep styling to a minimum. Pretty dresses always look best when you pair them with edgy accessories. Wear this with strappy platform heels, a slicked-back ponytail, and bright lips, or try fabulous ballet flats, a loose bun, and a pink pout for a more casual look. This gem comes in black too, but try it in this gorgeous cream shade first—you’ll be surprised at how flattering it is.
