J Crew hasn’t really delivered for me this season but their newest catalog contained two awesome dresses that are perfect for summer. They take casual chic to a whole new level. Their loose, airy fit will keep you cool when the summer sun beats down while their simple silhouettes will allow you to pair them with your statement jewelry and shoes. Available online at www.jcrew.com.
The Effie Scarf Dress is based on a vintage flapper dress J Crew designers found in a vintage store. Wear it during the day with a 3/4 sleeve cardigan and sandals and then pair it with super high, chunky heels and layered necklaces for evening. Available in three colors.
I think this may be the perfect throw it on and go dress, it is made from a heavyweight cotton slub fabric and the drawstring waist provide shape without sacrificing comfort. Wear it with white jack purcells and no socks to up the cute comfort quotient.
