Looking for a unique dress to wear at the beachside resort on your next summer vacation? Dramatic two-tiered bell sleeves, a sexy off-the-shoulder neckline, and the fitted smocked bustline on this poplin dress will surely turn heads. This signature dress is from new designer Caroline Constas, a New York based, Canadian designer who created a luxury lifestyle line for the modern day globetrotter.

The dress is made of 100% crisp cotton-poplin with a classic white and blue striped pattern. It has a loose, straight silhouette for a relaxed and forgiving fit around the tummy and hips.

I am wearing a size P. The smocked bust and neckline fit snugly around my smaller frame (I’m a 32 B chest). However, I did have the 2nd-tier bell sleeve taken up a bit because of my shorter arms. For a size S, the length of the dress from the center of the back down to the bottom is 29 1/4 inches.

This exact ‘Appollonia’ dress in white and blue is now 30% off and available in limited sizes – size XS at Boutique and size M at Net-a-Porter. An all-white version is on sale at Moda Operandi.

The newer print in patriotic red, white, and blue is available in all sizes at Neiman Marcus, InterMixOnline, and ShopBop.

I paired the dress with these cute Gucci ‘Becky’ platform wedges which are no longer available. Here are a few similars from Gucci that would also go well with this dress:

Red and navy leather espadrille with pearl and gold studs

4.3′ Red, white and navy block heel sandals

3.25′ Red and Navy Slingbacks


I accessorized with this adorable ‘La Dolce Vita’ straw tote from Kayu. Straw totes are a must for Summertime. The pom poms, colored handles, and ‘la dolce vita’ writing make this one exceptionally cute. Who wants to carry a leather bag in this heat and humidity?

The dress could also be paired with a pair of slides or lace-up sandals, and a cute little clutch. You can accessorize with shoes and handbags in neutral, blue, red, or even yellow for a pop of color. 

In 2013, Caroline Constas launched her eponymous label in search of functional but contemporary clothing. Known for off-the-shoulder looks, new takes on classic shirting, and breezy shirt-dresses, the pieces are very wearable and ideal for travel.
