The 1 Dress You Need for Summer

Bold prints and patterns are my summer go tos. The warm sunny weather makes me want to pull out a palette of bright colors and borderline obnoxious prints. Even though I love patterns, I dont usually go for horizontal stripes, especially not in such a bold color palette. But for some reason this Mara Hoffman multicolored striped maxi dress was calling me. And hey, it was from Rent the Runway so no commitment required! I took advantage of one of their specials to rent a few styles for a weekend so decided to experiment a bit. 

The dress fit perfectly and even though I was worried about it being too long,  the length was just right! I styled it with a pair of cobalt blue lace up sandals to bring out the hue in the dress.

And in case you haven't noticed from my Instagram, I also tend to gravitate to silhouettes with low cut backs. The back of this dress is super flattering and the pretty little knot is the best detail.  

If you are curious about trying a new style or spicing up your look, renting is a great low cost way to experiment with fashion. It gives you access to hundreds of options and pretty much guarantees you'll never have buyers remorse. And New York girls,  just think of the closet space you'll free up!
