When it comes to stuff I want to wear in the hot summer months, I'm looking to tick off a few boxes: I like to wear brighter colors, things that are easy to throw on and walk out the door, and things which must be light and airy, above all.
Imagine my delight to discover this dress from J.Crew. The rainbow hues are cheery, with a washed-out quality that implies hours spent in the sun, and it doesn't hurt that it goes with so many things I already own or have on my wish lists. It has an elastic waist, which means I can just slip this over my head when it gets too warm to think about doing much else. The sleeves are perfectly billowy, which is great for avoiding sweat stains (just keeping it real here) and the rest sits away from the body without taking away from my shape. It's almost as though I dreamed this dress into existence. You're welcome, J.Crew!
J.Crew Dolman-Sleeve Mini Dress in Rainbow Seersucker, $118, available here.
