If you’re hesitant to wear multiple trends at once, don’t fret: you can actually wear one piece that brings several trends together in one fell swoop – it’s literally the only dress you need this summer, if you’re only buying one! This dress is the perfect example, as it features three of summer’s biggest trends: a floral print, ruffles and cold-shoulder top. It’s a lot of trends happening at once, but it works, especially when you balance it out with neutral shoes and accessories as I’ve done here.

The ruffles and bare shoulder look are a little flirty and the color palette makes this a great look for day or night – consider this your new go-to dress for date nights and brunch with the girls!
