I don’t know about you, but the one thing I want all my summer dresses to be is pretty. There’s nothing easier in the summer than throwing on a one-and-done dress that has enough interesting details to constitute its own outfit, and right now, ’80s-inspired bows are catching my eye the most.
As we do with most trends that catch our eye, we designed our own version for our Who What Wear collection at Target, and based on the below outfit proof, it’s clearly been a hit. We’ve spotted women from all over gravitating toward the Bow Tie A-Line Dress, an easygoing sleeveless style with a cute bow tie detail on the neckline. It comes in two colors, but the beige is the obvious favorite among them.
Okay, I lied. There’s another major detail I like my summer dresses to embody: effortlessness. And luckily for me, the dress I’m highlighting below is as easy as they come. The neutral color means it goes with pretty much everything while the bowtie detail lends itself to a pretty, compliment-generating outfit that doesn’t require a ton of effort. Given all of the above, it’s no surprise that girls are already wearing it all over from California to North Carolina—and in some seriously inspirational ways.
