There are some dresses that are just fun to wear. This is one of those. Stripes in the form of a shirtdress is pretty much a no-brainer for me so I knew I loved this dress even before I tried it on. I knew it would be endlessly versatile (dress it up, dress it down) and an easy go-to for me to have in my closet. However, what really sold me on it was that handkerchief hemline. J.W. Anderson is so good about these kinds of little details . The designer excels at putting a unique spin on even the most basic piece (case in point: this top). The asymmetrical hemline (also available as a skirt!) offers a fresh take on a simple shirtdress. It’s what makes it a basic-but-not-boring kind of item. But, really, the best part? It gives the dress a swing that makes you want to twirl around when you wear it.
You know what else is fun? Surprises. Especially when they come in the form of a sale. On Shopbop. For the next 48 (!) hours, you can score up to 40% off warm-weather favorites like this off-the-shoulder dress, this gingham top (would be cute with white denim!), this pair of metallic lace-up sandals, and more!
