Brightly colored shapes always bring me back to a simpler time when the hardest lessons in school were the mixing of the primary colors (learned with finger paints) and the names of the shapes. Now we get long syllabi and textbooks that might as well be in a different language. This Fashionista channeled her inner grade schooler and rocked a colorful geometric dress on her way to class. The bright and fun pattern makes this dress youthful but its shape and cutouts on the waist make it classy and flirty.

The bateau neckline of her dress with the A-line bottom is a classic shape that is both slimming and flowing.
