From weekend escapes at the beach with open schedules to jam-packed staycations in the city, summer is all about making the most of your time off. Limit the time you spend building outfits for different occasions by investing a versatile dress that will work for any event. By beginning with a solid base--such as this black and white graphic print dress--then adding on accessories, shoes, and accent pieces, one piece will afford you the ideal outfit for so many different parties. And that means more time for enjoying yourself, and less time spent getting dressed.
