Steal the show with this sleeveless, multipatterned mini dress from Homme-Girl. You can dress it up or dress it down, and pair it with a hoodie or cropped blazer. I call this the ultimate day-to-date dress: You can slip on some sneakers and flats during the day, then quickly switch them out for heels and go on your hot date — no sweat. It’s the right combination of versatility and comfort for just about every occasion. (Homme-Girl, $20)


Bright Up the Room dress

Beige with a pop of blue and magenta is the right recipe for va-va-voom vibrance: Simple and fitted to show off your curves, with a bow at the bust to accentuate your cleavage.

Peplum is still on trend and going strong, and with the season’s fresh new bloom, it blossoms with a little twist. This dress honors the style with dual tones and a brilliant metallic blue belt. The best part of this piece is that you can wear it with flip-flops on a casual day or throw on a jacket when going into your nine-to-five job. (Forever 21, $25)


Black lace dress

Since black is the new pastel this year, you’ll need a light and airy lace cocktail dress to wear out at night. Lace gives a classic touch to an edgy cut style. You’ll love the tulle accents and peek-a-boo split down the neckline. This dress gives a delicate feel to a twisted ballet look, with just the right amount of sass to hit the downtown strip or to wear to your boss’s cocktail party. Rock it up with some unique jewelry for extra flair. (Akira, $50)
