Tis’ the season for that easy, breezy and beautiful dress. This summer must-have is flattering for all shapes and sizes, plus it gives you ample room to breathe underneath. A patterned or embellished piece also requires minimal styling effort but gives you an ‘A’ for summer style. Here’s a tip: choose lightweight cotton for maximum air circulation to keep cool.

Laced up sandals, or gladiator sandals, are back in trend. Ditch the zip-backs and go for the ones that are adjustable to give you flexibility. Then, pick a universal color (we’re thinking brown) that matches all of your summer outfits and you’re settled for the rest of the season.
