We’re predicting a long hot summer, so that means you’ll want to alternate your more cute-but-restrictive high-waist jeans with the other big news of the summer: the sack dress. Here are seven styling to help you rock the trendiest and most comfy dress on the market.

Accessories Dress 728x9211

Wear Statement Jewelry

Don’t junk up your nice clean waves of fabric with lots of little necklaces and such. Wear a striking cuff bracelet and/or necklace call it a day.

Try the Hat Trick

Nothing says “I’m from Silverlake” more than adding a felt hat--preferably one that looks like it’s been tossed around the cab of a Ford F-150 for a season.

Slip Dress 728x921

Invest in a Good Slip

Baggy dresses are often gauze or thin cotton, which means they’re nice and cool. Too bad that means nice and see-through, too. Buy a natural fiber slip in a neutral hue that you’ll also be able to use as a nightie.

Pair with a Simple Sandal

A flat sandal lends a “Jackie O vacationing in Greece” vibe to the sack dress.

Square Oxfords 728x524

Pair with An Oxford

Another example of opposites attract: A feminine flowing dress looks great with an Oxford shoe.

Wedge Heel Dress 728x921

Dress Up with a Low Wedge

Want to wear a print but not look too gypsy? Pair with a low wedge heel--because a pair of pointy heels would ruin the not-trying-too-hard vibe.

Clutch Dress 728x921

Carry a Clutch

Again, the simpler the better. A simple clutch bag looks elegant, whereas your usual tote bag could just make you look itinerant.
