1. Colorblock V-Neck Dress

I love a simple toss-on-and go dress because they are like secret pajamas. This Colorblock V-Neck Dress is an elegant take on casual knitwear. The options for colorblocking are really interesting. In the image above they show just the V-Neck in a contrasting color, but you could easily do the rest of the bodice in a third color. Or how about a print for the skirt and two coordinating colors for the top? There are lots of possibilities!
