My ultimate and final deciding factor on any dress? Is it fun to wear. Chic, on-trend, and striking though it may be, it’s not going in my closet if it doesn’t meet that single qualification. And what one thing that almost always makes a dress fun to wear? Something I like to call the twirl factor.

A Lonestar State of Southern According to that criteria, this Topshop number makes the cut… and doesn’t stop there.

A Lonestar State of SouthernWhy? Because it’s sleek while playful, classic while poppy.

A Lonestar State of SouthernI love the statement the delicate lace sleeves make in conjunction with the swing skirt.

The Topshop website states the dress is out of stock (frowny emoji), so I’m rounding up some of my favorite twirly dresses below. Throw one on (with some hot pink lipstick and high high heels) and go have fun!
