White and light grey combine for sporty and stylish looks from this collection from the July 2016 issue of BurdaStyle that complement glowing skin and the sophisticated details on these dresses, tops and skirts add an extra special touch.


White poplin lends the maxi skirt with deep, pressed pleats and a wide yoke at the waist a fresh and modern touch.


This skirt is one that is a true fashion evergreen. Bonus: The wide yoke gives narrow shape at the hips, while the pleats cascade beautifully over the hips.


The attached skirt panel is cut on the bias and the halter neck is shaped by the attached bands that wrap toward the back to be tied. Together, the details are simply sensational and allow the dress to drape beautifully around the figure.


The topstitched tying bands at the neckline wrap around the back to shape the halter blouse for a close and comfortable fit.


Proper, yet sexy could describe this dress. The slightly flared dress includes fantastic design details like the asymmetric strap detail and seam pockets. Panel seams and cleverly placed darts shape a beautiful silhouette. Fabrics with some body are ideal to use with this cut so that the straps stay in place and the stiffness of the fabric can hang elegantly just above the knee.


This look is a true transformation of a classic design with a modern twist. The updated shirt dress includes an impressive woven plastron, a wide belt and overcut shoulders.


The plastron for this covered button placket blouse is not just a series of folds. The look is created with wide bands of fabric woven together. The playful stripes add a stylish element that is enhanced by the weave.


This dress is a dreamy shape, and a youthfully sweet choice with its wide pleated skirt and pockets tucked in the side seams. A metal zipper in back is covered beautifully with a strip of white petersham.


Here’s a sporty and elegant alternative to the summer skirt. These Bermuda shorts feature pockets in the seam and surprisingly striking extras such as the buttoned bars at the waistband and the large rounded pockets with wide bands.


This classically clean and slightly flared dress cut draws the attention to the neckline. The design attaches the neckline piece at the side and sleeve and the shaped band gives definition to the illusion of a cutout.

      I like how the striped fabric works in the woven inset. That blouse is my first pick as well. Can see a few other pieces for summer wear.
