5 Summer Dresses Every New Yorker Needs
So you can spend more money on lobster rolls
Right now, you have your choice of approximately 7 bazillion gorgeous summer dresses to buy at clothing stores from Anthropologie to Zara.
Instead of spending your savings on a bunch of styles you’ll only wear only once or twice, stick with versatile options you can wear all summer long (and will still be in style next year, too).
Voilà, the only five summer dresses you need.
A FLORAL SUNDRESS
Rock this casual look to picnics, family reunions, Smorgasburg and pretty much anything else that requires you to be outside all day. You’ll stay cool as a cucumber and the floral pattern will disguise any wrinkles or sweat marks.
A BREEZY PARTY DRESS
The problem: You have 15 weddings to attend this summer. The solution: You can wear this dress to all of them, from the casual ceremony in the park to the four-hour-long mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
A COLD-SHOULDER WEEKEND DRESS
Mix a neutral cut with trendy details (oh hi, ruffles and off-the-shoulder sleeves) and you’ll be able to wear this dress once a week for the rest of the summer. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some serious brunching to do.
