Eva Mendes Collection Maria Striped Jacquard Dress
For a playful vibe, turn to a bold color like this very wearable shade of emerald (deeper “jewel” shades of any color tend to look great against any skin tone). Dress it up for cocktails with mix-and-match layered necklaces, or down for weekend brunch with cute flats and a cardigan.

Ann Taylor Abstract Wrap Dress
The adjustable waist on most wrap dresses make them a great option for women with curves. This one’s tie-waist and long sleeves create a flattering silhouette, and the small-scale pattern has a slimming effect.

On chilly days, belt a draped sweater over this simple shift for an effortlessly layered look. An added bonus: Sleeves that hit just above the elbow provide a little extra coverage for those who don’t dare to bare. Available in three colors.
