What: Dresses continue to rule the retail world as a top selling fashion item this year, and at the moment, the traditional sundress is hot, hot, hot.
What We Say: We’re kinda loving this whole dress revival, and the sundress is an easy-to-wear and easy-to-afford option, so we’re on board. The silouette we’ve got in mind is feminine and 50s inspired, with spaghetti straps, sweetheart neckline, and full-ish skirt (thought it doesn’t need to be full-on June Cleaver mode). What makes it modern? The patterns (splashy florals continue to be big) and the accessories (think gladiator sandals or wood heels, chunky necklaces, cocktail rings).
