Graphic black and white is a hot trend this season (just check out our June issue!). I'm a huge fan of black, white or grey but am always looking for fresh details to spice it up. That's why I love this Alice + Olivia dress. From the front, the simple two-tone dress is a safe option for the color-challenged; yet with one quick turn, the back detail adds a nice element of surprise ($440; shopbop.com) and invokes another sexy summer trend--the cutouts. And because monochromatic dresses easily transition from season to season, it's a great investment for anyone's wardrobe.
