Patterened Shift Dress at Sunset Clothing Xchange

What: A BCBGeneration v-neck shift dress in a multicolor print, reminiscent of pointillism, with flecks of two essential fall colors: teal and eggplant.

Both Versace and Gucci showed the same color combination in their fall-winter 2011 collections.

This take on the trend is less of a bank-breaker, and, unlike the aforementioned high-end (and high-volume) designs, it's simple enough to function as daywear.

Where: Sunset Clothing Xchange

Price: $29.99

Style It: The tunic-style frock's material is an ultra-light, silky polyester, making it wearable year-round in the desert. During the slow transition from summer to fall, tote a light sweater (like this one from Rag & Bone) to wear while in air conditioning.

Accessory-wise, sleek, menswear-inspired pieces will balance the breezy femininity of the dress. Go with a basic carryall, with simple, classic lines like this one from Coach's heritage line, and Church's linen and leather brogues.
