Last summer, I did a stupid thing. I cleaned out my summer dresses and sold most of my casual dresses. Now, I’m scrounging for clothes to wear on the weekends. Brilliant, Belle, bloody brilliant. So I need to buy some new casual dresses, and I think I’m going to start with this Spanish-inspired, embroidered dress.
Mango has a lot of cute dresses this season. This printed shirt dress is easy and fun. This chiffon dress is covered in bright, colorful patterns. And this simple white dress would look great with a flat sandal, a simple tote and some sunglasses.
If it’s stripes you’re after (and let’s face it, stripes are a summer staple), Anthropologie has the best choices. I love this dress with thin stripes on the bodice and thicker ones on the bottom. This orange dress has a fun shape and curve-accentuating lines. And this full-skirted basic frock is great for daytime or dinner; add a cardigan and wear it to work.
I’m also in the market for a simple t-shirt dress. It’s a great choice for quick errands or for use as a cover up at the pool. This Banana Republic one is nice. I also like this v-neck dress from Gap. But you can’t go wrong with a dress from Splendid.
