A white and minimalist option makes it an automatic day-to-day piece that is ideal for your lazy WFH days. It’s an elegant number that would be perfect with leather strappy sandals.
9. Karla Estrada
If you want to show off a bare decolletage, a square neckline is a great choice as it shows just the right amount of skin. There’s something to be said for the soft and pretty effect of wearing pale pink all over. Case in point: rose-colored earrings and a Prada sling bag in the same hue give a dressy feel to this daytime frock.
10. Amanda Griffin Jacob
Amanda Griffin Jacob shows a bohemian twist to the piece. The fit is perfect for summer days as it is ethereal and airy. We wouldn’t mind sitting exactly where she is in this photo!
