Crochet Detail Ruffle Maxi DressBuy Now
Available in sizes 000 to 22, Chico’s Crochet Detail Ruffle Maxi Dress will be everyone’s go-to dress for summer. Its beautiful turquoise-blue color looks flattering on everybody, no matter the skin tone. Its built-in drawstring gathers at the waist to give this soft, lightweight dress some shape, while crochet details on the sleeves and skirt give it style. It is only lined to the top of the knee, so it won’t be too hot to wear on your beach vacay. The A-line dress brushes your ankles and is available in petite for those who require a shorter inseam.
This well-made dress “looks far more expensive than it is” according to one rave review. Why does this gorgeous maxi dress deserve a spot in your beach capsule wardrobe? Because it is versatile enough to wear for a special occasion, out to dinner, or for photos on the beach. Chico’s teal Front To Back Beaded Hoop Earrings match perfectly, then feel free to stack on the bracelets and necklaces, as this dress leaves plenty of room for both. Slip on these Tan Laser Cut Slide Sandals and matching Tan Laser Cut Leather Tote and head out to dinner by the water!

One reviewer who purchased it in every color attests “you cannot go wrong with this tank.” The cherry red goes perfectly with Chico’s Floral Pull-On Soft Pants and Floral Ruched Sleeve Soft Jacket. Or for a less formal look, this tank also looks great with these white Brigitte Basic Slit Ankle Pants and Chico’s Mediterranean Coast Sheer Poncho.

These ankle-length pants feature angled front pockets, faux back pockets, and slits at the ankles. So Slimming® Hidden Fit technology offers a slim fit through the hips and thighs to the knees. The machine-washable fabric combo of rayon, nylon, and spandex makes them slightly stretchy and wrinkle-resistant.
As mentioned above and illustrated below, the Brigitte Basic Slit Ankle Pants go great with the Eyelet Tank and Mediterranean Coast Sheer Poncho for lunch on the water, accessorized with the tan slides, straw sun hat, gold earrings, and tan leather tote.

Another says she would have never picked it out for herself but was so glad that a sales associate had her try it, so give it a shot even if it might not be your usual style.
The Embroidered Eyelet Sleeve Midi Dress leaves room for the ruffle, or just tie a sarong around your waist and let the ruffle have its day in the sun.

Bonus: Beach Tumbler
Corkcicle 16oz Prosecco TumblerBuy Now
If taking your own tumbler to the beach is wrong, we don’t want to be right. Just because it has prosecco in the name doesn’t mean you have to use this Corkcicle 16oz Prosecco Tumbler for bubbly, but if you do, it will keep it nice and chilled for you. In fact, no matter what you fill this 16-ounce stainless steel tumbler with, it will keep cold for up to 9 hours. Plus, the gold color won’t clash with your outfit.
