It might be no surprise to you that I love a dress, whether printed or plain a dress will always make you feel effortless and put together, yet they can be casual too. Slip on a pair of trainers or chunky boots to play down feminine frills or prints. I’ve put together this edit of a few of my favourite styles and why they’ll work every summer.
The Smock Dress
Light and loose the smock dress is one style that’s always there in the background. I’m not usually one for short dresses (I prefer them with longer sleeves so I don’t feel too exposed) but I’m embracing the smock style this summer as it’s so comfy and such a flattering style. Plus it’s great for tanning those pins.
The White Dress
Nothing feels more summery than slipping on a white dress on a hot day. White dresses will never date when it comes to summer and for me the more relaxed the better. I don’t want to wear a white dress that’s too tight fitting or see through so I often would choose embroidery, cotton or dresses that have a light under layer. It’s also worth checking out vintage sites too for pretty white dresses.
Although black doesn’t scream summer, it’s surprising how summery and chic the right black dress can feel. Opt for cotton or linen to be warm weather appropriate. The puff sleeve is a big trend this season as well as the ribbed midi dress. The key to making a black dress summery is how you accessorise, add chunky wooden jewellery, layered gold necklaces or a raffia bag for and finish off with sandals.
Perfect for holidays, summer evenings and comfort. Loose and airy strappy sundresses will be a savior in hot weather; everyone needs one for holidays. But they’re not just great for beach days, slip on some heeled mules and a bold red lip for a dressed up look.
Classic florals will always be in style regardless of season. This season florals have been revamped with puff sleeves, front splits and ruched tops for those extra feminine details.
