What would qualify as a sundress? Something dressier than an undress? Yes. Something to make you feel joyful and sun-kissed and pretty. That is a sundress. Jane’s Vanity defines this special summer look.

Sundresses should make life simple. But also fun. They need a freewheeling style, sweet colors, and jazzy prints.  Then maybe a splash of perfume. Two seconds, and you’re out the door. JV offers a choice of styles for this breezy season.

The Midi Slip Dress: strappy but langorous, a midi shows off your curves and your sandals. Try the latest look from Vannina Vespirini, the Ocean Silk Slip Dress, in a wave of deep blue stretch silk. Or, choose the A-line Darwin Silk Gown from Christine Vancouver in a menagerie of animals and butterflies. Olivia Von Halle’s Bibi Beatrice Black Floral Silk Slipdress will take you through the season with its cowl neckline and little slip underneath.

The Maxi: Sweep through summer in the Queen of the Night Maxi Dress. Violet & Wren paint a splashy desert floral on a lightweight navy blue cotton silk blend, mold it into a billowy shape that cascades from a nicely detailed little empire bodice. Or switch it out for their sunny, and slinky, Saguaro Gold Bias Slip Dress in cactus flower silk print. Conquer film festivals in Christine Vancouver’s Ophelia Floral Gown of ultra light-weight black silk charmeuse with triangle bust and spaghetti straps.

The Shift or Caftan: Farmer’s markets? Straw hats? Stacks of wrist jewelry? All look good with  a little shift dress. You’ll love Morpho + Luna’s Ajour Night Dress in white linen or Dana Pisarra’s Cannes Sleeveless Shift in black linen with white embroidery. For the ultimate, choose a skimpy A-line caftan, the Dream Embroidered Cotton Caftan from Dana Pisarra in white with hand-embroidered detailing and scalloped edging. 

Sundresses are our summer prerogative. Sometimes girly, sometimes ooh lala. We look to Jane’s Vanity for the perfect mix.
