Summer's best-dressed women will be wearing summer dresses. Why? Because there is nothing cooler under the sun when it comes to comfort and style. Unlike pants and shorts, dresses are easy, breezy, and perfect for almost any occasion. Whether running to the market or lunching with the ladies, all of these eco friendly dresses will make you look put together without making you break a sweat.
Stewart+Brown Olivia Crepe Shift Dress
This simple style lends itself to a number of looks for both day and night, and is the ideal backdrop for belts, cardigans and scarves. Made from 100% surplus crepe, the soft pleats and drape flatter many a body shape, and we love the bright yellow color (although it is also available in black or white). $148 at www.stewartbrown.com.
