Diane von Furstenberg Crochet Dress at GROWop
Becky Bartkowski

What: This vintage Diane von Furstenberg dress is cut in a mod, slouchy silhouette, with an orange Creamsicle color scheme. It's a summery crochet that could fashionably function as a sweater dress or a beach-ready cover-up in swimsuit season. 

It's not a signature cut for the seminal womenswear designer, renowned for her pioneering wrap dress design, but the citrus color and comfortable shape make it a versatile piece that can transition from summer brights into rich fall wardrobes.

Where: GROWop Boutique

Cost: $36

Style It: Presuming you'll want to leave the house in this mod vintage getup (and considering that it's not quite warm enough for poolside lounging), build a foundation for the crochet dress with a skin-tone slip, like this one from Calvin Klein in stretchy satin.

Go for small, but '60s-esque embellishments in the accessory department, but beware of going off the deep end -- the goal isn't to make it look like a costume but to wear the dress in a fun way. Bright white double drop earrings from Roberta Chiarella fit the bill, along with the gold-plated statement shell ring from Kenneth Jay Lane, and a Mulberry mini bag in grass green. Play off the dress' breezy, summertime brightness with a sandy, delicate Marais ankle strap wedge.
