If you're going to be spending hours in a car seat, comfort is essential. Fossil’s super-soft cotton Maggie dress is breathable and comfortable enough to stand up to even the longest trips. Vintage-style gold embellishments around the V-neck and flattering cap sleeves compensate for the dress's simple square shape. When the air conditioning is blasting, the sleeves fit nicely under a cardigan without bunching up under your armpits. Despite the plain cut, the Maggie is easy to accessorize: pair it with a thin belt during the day or a long necklace at night.

Buyer Beware: The Maggie can’t handle a machine wash—hand wash only.
