This is one great summer sundress for many reasons, but it’s the hip-hugging wrap detail, and the sassy ruffle hem that really makes me smile.

When you move, this dress moves! And on the day we shot this, it was quite windy out, so ….

Do you see that fabulous ruching? The sleeveless dress is so figure-flattering for gals with curves. It’s cotton, so it’s light and airy, but it fits like a glove.  And, all those opposing stripes, up and down, across and on an angle, make the dress so lively and sporty.

Cotton pinstripe shirtdresses are a classic style of summer sundress, but Veronica Beard takes it one step further by adding this sexy spin. This dress has a sporty, nautical vibe, but it also makes me feel like wiggling my hips and Salsa dancing!

I always like to turn up the collar a touch on a crisp shirt or shirtdress. It helps frame your face, elongate your neck, and just looks very chic. My Kendra Scott Stone Drop Earrings, a pair of white mules, and a red bag are all I need to amp up the look.
