Find the Right Fabric

If you’re going for comfortable and casual, dress up your fabric. Opt for Summer dresses in cotton and linen blends. This is a particularly good combo for all white dresses that you don’t want to be totally see-through. Pair with a top handle purse and sleeves that boast a little bit of volume.
