There are a few pieces I know from the moment I buy them, they will be a favorite. This Stateside dress definitely brought on that moment. It was minimal enough to dress-up and down, as well as classic enough to wear in all types of scenarios. On my latest trip to Miami, Ashley told me of a place she wanted to show me before heading to the Miami Open. She was partnering with Lacoste for the tennis match so I knew we were going to be sitting in their box. Oh, the fashion dilemma. Beach one minute and swanky tennis match the next. I needed a dress that was appropriate for both, and I had it!
This is the perfect dress for those who want something that is an option for any occasion. Throw it on over a bathing suit for a day at the beach or wear it with sneakers to a tennis match. Either way, it works! Which goes back to my theory of only buying items you can think of five different ways to wear it or five different scenarios it fits in. This dress = smart investment.
* Side note – the dress does go up on the sides so if you have long legs I might consider taking it to your tailor to sew up the sides. I still HIGHLY recommend this dress as it is just too perfect for all summer settings and too classic to not own.
