If you are in search of the ideal dress to pack for a summer getaway, try a convertible dress.
Simply made of jersey knit with rows of elastic at the top and an A-line cut, this piece can be worn as both a dress and skirt.
This easy, lightweight dress makes it the ultimate bathing suit cover-up. Choose one with a pattern that complements all of your swimsuits and, best of all, doesn’t show stains.
For evening, pull it down and wear it as a skirt. Pair it with a tank, statement necklace and platform sandals for a Bohemian chic look.
Pack a flattering swimsuit, convertible dress and outrageous shades and you are ready for the most relaxing summer vacation.
