I recently developed an appreciation for the deep-V printed wrap dress. Something about seeing the style all over Instagram lately made me wake up and realize that one simple piece can instantly make for an easy, ideal summer outfit. No matter how muggy or gross it gets (NYC summer, where you at?), an airy dress is easy to throw on with a pair of sandals or sneakers and look cute, even if you're a little sweaty. But because many of the versions I've seen have been too pricey, I've been on the lookout for less expensive options. Enter this dress. From... Abercrombie! Who would have guessed?

With a not-too-short, not-too-long, just-right Goldilocks hem length and a full lining (this is no place to experiment with the naked dress trend), it's pretty foolproof. Though this same style is available in two floral options, I prefer the subdued black-and-white print as it serves as a perfect contrast to the flouncy skirt and fluttery sleeves. But regardless of your print preference, they're on sale right now for a very modest $39 a pop, so there's pretty much no excuse not to scoop 'em all up.
