style inspiration: classic summer dress
Vinylux + Essie Hack
Right before I left for NYC a few weeks ago I found the perfect white summer dress on sale at Gap. I ended up wearing it a few times because it was not only super comfortable, but all I needed was to throw on a denim jacket and I was good to go for anything we were doing that day.
It seems like white summer dresses are everywhere. I’ve seen some at Gap, and even some really cute ones at Old Navy. It’s the perfect thing to wear on really hot days, that can be casual or easily dressed up.
I love adding color into an otherwise neutral wardrobe with accessories. Starting with white dress means you can go absolutely any direction with color. Despite the fact that the dress is really simple, I find pieces like these allow a little bit more versatility in your wardrobe.
When shopping for a white dress, make sure it’s lined. If you aren’t sure about whether or not it is see-through, stand in front of a window and look in the mirror (or take a photo). The sheerness factor can be masked in a dressing room, and nothing is worse than being out in public on a sunny day only to realize your dress is completely sheer.
If you don’t have one in your wardrobe yet, be sure to add a classic white dress soon–summer is here!
