- A cute STRIPED DRESS becomes super casual with a BASEBALL CAP and a CHAMBRAY SHIRT around your waist. Perfect for running errands or going to soccer practice.
- A basic TEE DRESS is perfect for everyday. These kinds of straight dresses don’t give you any shape, so a jacket, a shirt tied around your waist, a belt, will definitely help. But they’re not required! If you go without, just add some cute shoes, like sneakers or fun sandals, plus a fun pair of earrings so you don’t look like you’re wearing pajamas.
- SHIRT DRESSES are great options for summer. They’re so chic, but easy to dress down with a flat sandal.
