Best Bet: Zara Double-Breasted Lapel Dress

A crisp white dress feels refreshingly lightweight as the days warm up, and Zara’s take merges a clean minimalist aesthetic with a touch of menswear detailing. An asymmetric lapel mimics the look of a double-breasted blazer and the cutout back reveals just a hint of skin. Top it off with a bright cardigan or a sharp blazer to make the dress work-friendly, then ditch the cover-up once the day ends and you’re ready to take advantage of outdoor happy hours.

Dress with Double Breasted Lapel, $69.90 at Zara or online.
