Why: It’s wedding season and that means you need the right dress to wear when your pals profess their love this summer. An interesting twist to what’s popular this season in dresses is the empire waist â€“ not always a flattering look for those of us over the age of 25. This crinkle DKNY Jeans dress allows you, however, to sport the high-waist and the halter-top looks all at the same time while covering you in what is decidedly the most flattering print: the vertical stripe. The a-line will allow you to eat that extra cupcake at the reception. This dress was made for summertime soirees, afternoon affairs, or fancy showers.
