Hit the streets in effortless sheath dresses and fluttery dolman sleeves. These 8 patterns from the June 2012 issue of Burda Style magazine help you navigate the city in style.
Be comfy and stylish at the same time in a loose fitting Dolman Dress. The mini length shows off your legs, and looks even better with strappy sandals or pumps.
Simplify your separates with a boxy Square Neck Tank. The square neckline shows off your face and is great for pairing with a statement collar necklace. Wear it with jeans for a casual look, or tuck it into a skirt or trousers.
Show off your shape in the perfect Fitted Sheath Dress. You can build so many looks from this body-conscious style. Wear it alone for a summer party dress, or add black tights and platforms for winter.
Float through your day in this breezy Split Sleeve Dolman. This loose fitting style pairs well with skinny pants for a polished look or leggings on your day off. It looks modern in fabrics with a little body, like the crisp poplin shown here.
The relaxed Sleeveless Shift Dress is reminiscent of 1950s sac dresses. With a V neck and hidden pockets, this style makes a great weekend dress.
Make a flapper-inspired dress you can wear every day. The straight shape and pleated hem are a nod to the 20s, but the simple boatneck and knit fabric are modern enough to wear with flats during the week.
Use fabric with a little body to give this easy pattern some body. The Waistband Skirt is a comfy separate to pair with tee shirts or silky tanks.
Toughen up your mini skirt in this straight wrapawround style. Go for funky buttons to give the Fold-Over Skirt a nautical or tartan feel.
