Chic, off-the-shoulder bell sleeves add a summery feel to a cotton guipure lace gown.

Effortless doesn't have to mean expected. A mix of textured patterns and a sexy bardot neckline give a column dress a one-of-a-kind twist.
3. Mix and Match
Get in on the crop top trendwith an airy two-piecegown that shows just asliver of your midsection.
4. Elegance Everywhere
Don't skip the dress details you love just because you're jetting off to an exotic destination. Floral lace and tulle are elegant anywhere. If you're worried about how the dress will travel, get in touch with your airline to set your mind at ease.
