Choose something long-sleeved, sleeveless, flowy, or structured. Then pair your pick with your favorite footwear to complete your look.
Taylor Swift popped up in Paris looking appropriately Parisian chic in a black and white look — score her exact Kate Spade New York colorblock dress ($398) here. The singer then completed her European style with black tights, black suede pumps, a cute paper plane necklace, and stud earrings. What we love most about Taylor's new dress is that it looks like she layered a strapless black dress over a white tee. We can't get enough of the girlie flowy skirt either. Dress it up with tights and pumps like the singer did or dress it down with ballet flats.
