Why: One of the best things about summer is the beautiful dresses that become available. They’re easy to wear, look pretty, and are a refreshing change from winter’s dark basics. I love this printed blouson dress with bishop sleeves and a pleated skirt. The peasant-style top has a split neckline and long ties, and the flirty A-line skirt is cinched at the waist so there’s no need for a belt. The island-blue and black print has summertime fun written all over it. Wear it festival-style with a denim jacket, suede fringed booties, and a loose braid or dress it up for work with a structured blazer, strappy wedge sandals, and a messy topknot.
