Best Bet: Motel’s Sweet Shirtdress


The perfect summer shirtdress is hard to find — most options seem to be cut more like men's oxfords, leaving the dress part out of the equation. Enter Motel’s subtly striped frock. The front pockets, rolled collar, and buttons are all menswear-inspired, while the nipped-in waist gives it a refreshingly feminine structure (and lets you showcase your favorite belts).
