As the weather gets hotter, we just want our clothes to get easier — and what’s simpler than a dress than can go day to night and requires the bare minimum of accessories? We’ve spotted Eva Mendes, Nicole Richie and Sienna Miller wearing smocked tube-dresses with great bold patterns and long sweeping hems. Just toss on a few bangles, a cool bag and comfy sandals, and you’re set! Dress it up for night time with jeweled flip-flops and an oversize clutch. The best part of these dresses is the smocking — unlike normal strapless dresses that tend to fall, these stay snugly on the bustline. Here are a few of our favorites. . .Tell us: Would you try a smocked sundress?
