There's nothing wrong with wearing a tank top and denim shorts on repeat all summer, but the fail-safe combo can feel a bit uninspired. Luckily, you can spice up the look with one super-simple yet unique piece: a wrap dress worn as an airy coat.
You can thank Emily Ratajkowski for the idea: She stepped out in Los Angeles wearing Réalisation Par's The Violette Dress ($225) with a tank top and cutoffs. Her bright-green topper livened up her basics and turned it into a fashion-girl look. Plus, this trick also works perfectly for the office: Wear a sheer dress with jeans and a blouse for 9-to-5, and then on its own after hours. How can we resist a pretty piece that pulls double duty?
