Just because we’re spending more time indoors this season doesn’t mean that a new spring frock is out of reach. And with plenty of warm weather and sunshine on the horizon, we’ll be wanting the right (read: light) attire to follow suit. Considering that comfort and wearability have been key in formulating our mostly stay-at-home wardrobes, the sweetness of an affordable sundress promises to keep us both looking and feeling cool with minimal styling required.
For most of us, that designer-made dress with an upper-hundreds price tag is more of a dream buy than a wardrobe essential — one that we won’t be getting too much mileage out of once spring and summer come to an end. So, with an itch for something new — but a budget in mind — we’re taking a savvier approach to our skin-baring frock expenditures by finding just-as-lovely alternatives that still leave space on the balance sheet.
