No summer beach bag is complete without a swimsuit cover up. More and more women are opting for a breezy dress over cut-off shorts or the blatant attempt-to-cover-up-my-hips sarong to go over their swimwear.
At the StyleCaster office, we’re having a moment with this lightweight one-shoulder “Goddess” dress by Sosume ($199). It’s not your usual silhouette, and it can go from beach to night in no time just follow our fashion tips below!
Scrunch it up. Jersey is a tangibly soft and pliable fabric. Don’t hesitate to bunch up a jersey dress to create a slouchy top. Be sure to pair it with a structured bottom in a heavier fabric such as this leather mini skirt; you don’t want to have crazy bunches across your waistband!
Mix in heavy fabrics. Pairing a gauzy summer jersey dress with heavier fabrics can take your piece into fall. Try leather and chunkier knits for a nice contrast in colder months.
Layer over and under. When simply throwing a jacket over your summer dress won’t suffice, try layering a button up underneath the dress to put a formal twist on a basic piece.
