Abstract blue

Online dress shopping can be so dangerous--it's just one beautiful dress after another. Yaya Aflalo's Yale dress immediately jumped out of the page with its lively blue watercolor print. The abstract swirls of blue and white completely cover the silk frock, which also has this subtle floral jacquard pattern you can only observe from up close. The wide scoop neck, elbow-length sleeves, and belted waist are all conservative enough for work, but those brilliant blue swirls practically beg for attention. This is the type of dress where you don't need any accessorizing--it's a thrown-on-and-go piece that can take you just about anywhere.
