This summer, if you want to add just one piece to your wardrobe, make a breezy, swingy white dress.
Look for a dress that isn’t too long or too short — if it hits at the knee or just below, it’s perfect. The swingy shape makes it ideal for parties or it can even be used as swimsuit cover-up.
We love the tiered halter dress by Theory ($295) pictured here. This pretty dress can be worn halter style, or the thin straps can be tied in a bow on the bustine to make it strapless.
You’ll also adore the Lauren by Ralph Lauren ‘Esmeralda’ Linen Sundress ($158). This white linen dress features a full, gently pleated skirt and eyelet embroidery trim. It’s available at Nordstrom in sizes 8-16.
