I really like the style of dress with a high waist, a 60s style bodice and a poofy circle skirt.
They go for $100 + on websites like Jones & Jones, but really they are so simple and easy to make yourself.
All you need to do is find a cheap pattern from a charity store/op shop that you like the look of (any kind of basic dress is fine) and use this as the pattern for your bodice. As for the skirt, you can follow my circle skirt tutorial here (sans velvet), and then all you have to do is join the two together!
And basically any combination of prints and colours will look nice as well, particularly if you work with a patterned/plain combination, I think. Or you could do the dress all the one colour. There's loads of possibilities!
