The sundress. Every girl has her go to summer dress when the weather warms up. It's your go to look that never fails. It's comfortable enough for a lazy day spent with friends, appropriate for work, but still stylish for a party or night out. Today's Fashionista shows us that the only thing you need to look summertime chic is simply a sundress and a pair of sandals. Emma is wearing a a green and purple print sundress with navy blue detailing at the neck and waist. She paired this with a pair of light brown sandals. What I like most about this look is that the print is different than the typical floral you commonly see, making it unique but also keeping it fresh for spring and summer.

I found patterned sundresses from Francesca's Collection, the boutique where Emma got her. Try this vibrant orange shift dress with a pop of yellow and blue. Or, this bright blue and green tribal print dress that has a cinched waistline and flared skirt. Once you find the perfect patterned sundress for yourself, you'll be wearing it all summer long.
