You can never go wrong with a classic DVF wrap dress.  This Diane Von Furstenberg’s Yahzi Silk Jersey Wrap Dress ($428) can be worn to the office and then out for drinks at the end of the work day.  All of DVF prints are lovely, but this green leaf print gives us tropical summer vibes.

For a bigger romantic statement, we adore this Printed Chiffon Dress with Embroidery from Dolce & Gabbana ($6,595).  It is obviously an investment piece, but what a piece it is!  The lush floral print, the heart adornment at the waist, the flattering halter…  It is simply breathtaking.

Nautical for Sailing

Wear BCBG Max Azria’s Vintage Stripe Twist-Back Dress ($158) for a day of sailing or relaxing at the yacht club.  Thin white stripes on navy are classically nautical.   We love that the silhouette is minimal too for a clean, fresh vibe.
