Meet the Nap Dress — Summer's Biggest Must Have
One of the most comfortable trends to emerge this summer is the "nap dress." The name evokes an alluring sense of relaxation and calm. I've had my eye on this trend for a while, but it wasn't until the warm weather hit that I actually got one. Many of these dresses are made to sleep in, but designers have given them extra details like lace, eyelet, and smocking to make them wearable for daytime.
The dresses are usually made of soft, breathable cotton, and in delicate florals or solid white, they are perfect for summer days. Simply add your favorite minimal sandal or wear one over a swimsuit. These dresses feel like special "treat yourself" purchases — a stylish addition to your wardrobe, day or night.
