The “Go-Everywhere” Dress

Have you found THE ONE? If you have no idea what I’m referring to, it’s the carefree uniform of the summer: the wear-everywhere dress. It’s the dress that turns heads while you’re walking down the street. The dress that is so effortlessly stylish, it looks as though you spent hours putting your look together. Anyway, I found mine!

I picked up this number during Zara’s summer sale and while my mom may claim it looks like a maternity dress, I love it. The stripes and palm print combo is perfect, adding that edge to a summer dress that could’ve been quite blah. Especially since the silhouette is loose-fitted.

Typically, I wouldn’t try something like this on simply because the print is so bold. But if there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the past year, it’s that some things look better ON than on a rack. So if you’re weirdly attracted to something that’s not really your aesthetic, give it a shot. Chances are, you’re going to fall madly in love.
