Hilary Duff Has Got Us Convinced That Our Next Summer Dress Should Be a Mara Hoffman

While we’ve been long-time fans of Mara Hoffman’s tribal-inspired prints, the way Hilary Duff wore a dress from the NY-based designer yesterday has got us looking at Mara Hoffman in a whole new light.

Hilary Duff was the quintessential summer babe in her swingy, vividly colored Mara Hoffman dress. Check out Hilary’s pictures below, and see if your mind doesn’t immediately fill with images of sun, sand, and surf.

Even Hilary Duff herself looks extra happy in her Mara Hoffman dress. We know celebrities usually aren’t this smiley when they’re being followed around by the paparazzi.

That’s it: the next time we go shopping for a summer dress, it’ll most definitely be a Mara Hoffman!

Hilary Duff’s mood-altering mini is this Mara Hoffman rainbow-printed cover-up dress:

Yes, Mara Hoffman designed this dress just to be a swimsuit cover-up (hence the low sides). Hilary Duff converted it into a day dress by layering it with a hi-cut bra and belting the roomy tentlike shape low on the waist.

Also check out the mint color of this dress at Zappos — it’s currently going at 30% off!
