Fashion Shot of the Day

I don’t think that there’s anything earth shatteringly inventive or avant garde about this outfit but therein lays its beauty. It’s simple and stunning, the perfect illustration of the brilliance and versatility of a good dress. Dresses for summer are a no-brainer. How else can you look put together with as little effort as possible and still stay cool in the sweltering heat? The length is absolutely ideal and the color and pattern are very flattering. I’m a big fan of orange for summer, it works well with a tan and unlike, say, yellow, it’s an easy color to wear. The white pattern makes it more interesting. With dresses it’s best to not over-accessorize, it can look contrived. In keeping with the easy, breezy (yeah, Molly Sims is a Cover Girl) style of the dress, opt for a nice long necklace or dangly earrings, never both. The brown peep toe shoes are adorable and keep the focus on that gorgeous dress.

As for hair, I thoroughly approve of the tousled waves but a casual ponytail would work just as well.
