A sundress is the simplest and prettiest summer outfit of all. There are options that work for cocktail hour and others that can double as bathing suit cover-ups. Many of these sweet styles translate from work to play seamlessly, and accessorizing the floaty, flirty frocks is just as easy breezy. Best of all, local stores are stocking more styles than we can count!
