Summer 2007 Must-Have: Jersey Dress

Summer is going to be sizzlin' hot, as always, so to keep cool, you're going to have to have an equally cool summer look. Take your daytime look up another chic-notch by kicking your boring khaki shorts to the curb and opting for a breezy & beautiful jersey dress. Choose a dress in a solid color and add sass to your outfit by layering your look with fun tank tops and funky shoes. Here are three dresses, sure to please any fashionista's budget:

Surefire Steal

At $69.50, this dress ain't all that cheap, but unless you want your new look to fall apart in the next wash, this is a pretty good price for a dress. This simple cotton dress is available in your choice of gray or black, meaning you can make lots of outfit variations using bright tops and/or bright shoes.

Slight Stretch

J Crew V-neck jersey knit dress - $88 is nearly $100, which for most people is a lot of money. But just gel on this thought for a're investing in a dress that you're sure to get lots of stylin' wear with all spring and summer long. With a look this simple yet chic, you're sure to make your money back in compliments.

Serious Splurge

I'm not sure if I'd pay $220 this dress would cost, but if you're looking to splurge on your summer jersey dress, then let this be the one. This Beth Bowley Smocked Jersey Dress comes in Azalea, White, and Navy so you can choose to add your "brights" to the look with the main piece or your current collection of accessories.

it's so comfy and pretty at the same time. I just bought similar dress in blue. The weather is still a bit cold where I live. So I'm not able to wear it now. Can't wait. This is a great post. Good job!
