Nothing like a little sunshine to inspire ladylike dressing. This pretty, floral-printed pleated dress, complete with skinny belt and demure cap sleeves, is the perfect go-to for spring and summer affairs. Slip it on with bare legs, slingbacks, a colorful clutch, and perhaps a straw hat for a garden party on the North Shore, a tea on Beacon Hill, or a wedding on the Vineyard. “Perlaa” wallpaper floral print dress, $298 at Ted Baker, 201 Newbury St., Boston 617-450-8339, www.tedbaker-london.com
