Ah Summer, how I love that you allow us to wear airy dresses without leggings or tights. This Banana Republic Heritage Silk Blend Strapless Dress ($98) is one of those dresses that needs nothing except sun-kissed skin and beachy tresses. It's so light, it can even serve as a bikini cover-up. The price isn't ludicrous, but why pay more when you can pay less?
To see the less expensive version,
This Arden B Tie Waist Tunic ($39) is perfection. It has the same coloring — though it comes in olive and blush as well — silky fabric, and oversized pockets. I would even argue that it's more glam thanks to the gold buttons. Look for less accomplished.
