We think this oh-so-retro mini dress from UK brand Collectif is just a perfect summer must-have for so many reasons. The timeless red and white gingham print inspires Rockwell-esque imagery of a summer picnic. The gathered milkmaid-style bust with thick halter straps that tie at the back allows for some light sunbathing. The shorter length of the pleated swing skirt and the smocked panel at the back offers comfort and ease of fit that are perfect for those hot days you just want to slip into something retro-chic without too much fuss. Made from a crisp cotton-blend, you’re going to love how much fun and versatility this vintage-inspired lightweight sundress has to offer!
