The Look: Casual Weekend
Brooke shows that a denim or chambray shirt dress is the ultimate summer wardrobe staple. Toss on flat sandals for brunch or errands; switch to a wedge and add chic jewelry for an afternoon BBQ. A belt will help define the waist and give you a more feminine sense of definition. And if you are tall or have really long legs, layer two dresses or a skirt together for instant extra hemline.
