Best Cute Summer Dress

  • Alice + Olivia

    80 W. 40th St., 212-840-0887

    You don’t have to traipse to Ludlow Street to rouse your wardrobe from its woolen winter slumber this year. Head to the improbably located new Alice + Olivia boutique on Bryant Park, where fashion’s current sixties revival has resulted in a colorful parade of sleeveless mod shift dresses and flirty pleated minidresses. At $240 to $350, they’re not cheap, but over jeans or a turtleneck, you can wear them into fall.
