Terry cloth has been pretty much tainted ever since certain tracksuits (which shall remain nameless) hit the scene. The spoiling, however, is a real shame because the fabric is great for summer—lightweight and quick to dry. Now Marc Jacobs has transformed it from shapeless fashion faux pas into a double-breasted, knee-length wrap dress. The cute frock comes in two shades of red: a punchy bright tone and a more muted, brownish shade, both offset by a white trim. Toss it on over your swimsuit and you’ll be dry, and fashionably so, in no time.
