When it comes to easy-to-wear outfits, nothing beats the dress. Quick and effortless, the shirt dress is our throw-on-and-go style saviour for busy weekday mornings when we’re rushing out the door. Got a date night planned? We like to up the ante with a chic LBD teamed with our snazziest accessories. Here, Rach Martino, a New York-based style blogger at Rachmartino, shows us why the dress should be your favourite new solo act this season…


There’s few things I love more than a great dress. For the first look I paired the Relaxed Breton Tunic with killer leopard heels and an oversized red tote. I love this outfit because it mixes classic elements and patterns, but keeps a cool girl vibe. It’s the perfect dress to transition into the new season in style.


For the second look I featured an adorable little white dress with the same gorgeous leopard pumps and a salty pretzel treat! The dress is a beautiful one with a pretty polka dot texture and flattering fit-and-flare cut. The best thing about this dress is it’s great for work or play. On the weekend, I’d dress it down with flats for a picnic in one of my favourite spots in my adopted hometown, New York’s Central Park.


For the last outfit, I fell head over heels for the Victoria Dress, an oversized smock-style dress with a navy blue fan pattern. I love the relaxed fit of the dress… It’s super comfortable and cute. I added adorable glitter Mary Janes and a lovely brown and pink clutch to finish. It’s a look I plan to wear to a late summer garden party or low-key wedding.
