Trend Alert: Button-Down Dresses

Button-up in a button-down dress this summertime. As you probably guessed, this style dress has buttons running down the front, that fasten to hold it together. Show more or less skin, by switching up the number of buttons you keep undone—depending on your company (coworkers versus a hot date) or the weather, perhaps?

Anthropologie Cora Midi Shirtdress, $215: The trendy (throwback) tie-dye print of this dress, works well with the retro-inspired collar.
