If you’re like me, then you’re probably always on the hunt for the perfect summer dresses for the various occasions throughout the season. I recently graduated, but this season is filled with celebrations like weddings, summer parties, and even graduation parties. So, having an arsenal of versatile and beautiful summer dresses on hand is a necessity. Club Monaco is always my go- to destination for, well every occasion, but they always have an amazing selection of dresses this time of year. Just a side note: I actually wore this Club Monaco dress to my graduation, so the brand and this dress will always hold a special place in my heart.
When shopping for dresses I like to look for simple silhouettes that have subtle details but really stand out. Then I like to style that piece with a fun topper or something with subtle print. I’ve always been a fan of solid dresses as opposed to statement prints because they’re more wearable and give off a more elevated look. I normally gravitate toward the classics, black and white, but when I saw this gorgeous Club Monaco Bindell Sweater Dress in this pastel blue, I knew I found a keeper.

The Bindell Sweater Dress from Club Monaco is not only a beautiful color, it has a clean silhouette and is made out of the softest sweater material – perfect for those cool summer nights. The back of this dress is my favorite because it features the cutest drawstring details for a customizable and figure flattering fit. I pulled the drawstrings a little tighter to create a shape that worked for me. And on top of all of that, this piece just went on sale along with several other dresses! It doesn’t get much better than that.

Wearing: Club Monaco Bindell Dress | Club Monaco Viktoriah Cardigan | Club Monaco Channon Heeled Sandal 

This dress is great for a day party and can transition seamlessly into a more casual evening look. I chose to style this look with the Viktoriah Cardigan for an unexpected pop of print. This classic take on a poncho adds a beautiful texture to the overall look, and I love the beachy tassel trim. It just gives off an effortless vibe, and the silhouette allows you to drape it over your shoulders or wear it more as a wrap. To dress up the look, I added a final touch with the Channon Heeled Sandals. The shape and style of these heels are both striking and sophisticated. The wavy straps are so simple and delicate. I have been wearing them non-stop. I wore this look to a late afternoon grad party and received so many compliments on the heels! In the meantime, I’m looking forward to dressing the Bindell Dress down for a casual day-time look with white sneakers or embellished sandals.

    Hi! I was wondering what size your dress is? I have the same exact body type as you, and I wanted to know for ordering online? On the website, the dress looks a little loose so I wanted to ask! Thanks!

      Hi Hanna! Thank you so much for your comment! This dress does have a slightly slouchy fit. I was in between a size X-small and small and I will tell you why. The xs fit, but it was slightly shorter and a little more fitted. I am 5’9″ so I thought it was a little too short if I wanted to pair it with heels. The purpose of this silhouette is to be worn kind of looser, so that is why I went with the small. If you have the same body type as me, I would go with the small. You will be more comfortable and it will look more flattering and less like a body-con-esque dress haha!

      Hope this helps!
