It’s no secret that we here at ModCloth love vintage fashion, it’s how the site got its start after all. So it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that we’re huge fans of Gil Elvgren‘s iconic pin-up illustrations. That’s why we chose to use one of his summer picnic-inspired pictorials for this week’s style must.

Inspired by Elvgren’s classic costumes and the promise of outdoor summer parties, we decided it was time to start searching for the perfect sundress. Take a cue from our Style Gallery gals and experiment with gingham and polka dots, chic coiffures, and fun bows:

Eager to sprawl out on a picnic blanket and munch on your favorite summer treats? Join in on the picnic-ready fun with our full selection of summer styles.
