Spring is in full effect, which means we're spending less time indoors and instead enjoying the burst of warm weather. It's the perfect excuse for outdoor happy hours and, of course, a new spring frock or two. (Or three ... or four.) With plenty of warm weather and sunshine on the horizon, you’ll be wanting the right (read: light) attire to follow suit. The sweetness of an affordable sundress promises to keep you 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 an investment rather than a wardrobe essential. A piece that we probably 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 with 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.
