The scorching summer is at its powerful best and the moody monsoons aren’t helping matters when it comes to beating the heat. That can only mean one thing! It’s time to get those summer dresses out of hibernation and put them to good use before cooler days arrive.
So whether you’re a girl who loves all things feminine or your style is easy-breezy and laidback, there’s a dress out there for you. Read on to discover looks that you can wear with confidence, whatever your style personality may be.
Is your style elegant and uber-feminine? We’d suggest you take the maxi dress route this summer. Think a cutesy floral printed number that would look great on a brunch date or girly lunch with the ladies. We know that florals for summer may not be ground-breaking but this season they’ve taken on a bolder and more daring avatar. Choose dresses with a fresh and light base colour like white, peach or baby pink that have a bright bouquet of prints guaranteed to make you look like the belle of the ball. Team a dress like this one with peep-toe wedges, hoop earrings and a satchel bag. Pull your hair back in a fishtail braid and add a touch of pink lip gloss for the perfect finish.
Do you prefer taking the classic route while dressing for the office? Try an elegant sheath dress like this one that is a flattering silhouette on everyone. Since it’s that time of the year when dark colours should be packed away (more or less), we’d recommend pretty pastel hues like blush pink or peach. Add a skinny black belt to cinch your waist and slip into a pair of patent leather pumps or strappy heels. Quick tip— match the colour of your belt to the colour of your shoes to earn brownie points for style! Top off the outfit with oversized stud earrings, style your hair in a French twist, add some winged eyeliner and you’re all set!
If ‘less is more’ is your mantra while picking out outfits, then we’ve got the perfect dress for you. Think a navy shirtdress that’s both summer-appropriate and fashionable. You can dress it up or dress it down, depending on the occasion. Heading for a movie date on the weekend? Wear this dress with a slim brown belt, peep-toe wedges and simple hoop earrings. If you’re heading out to dinner and drinks with the girls, play up your outfit with bright-coloured heels, a dull gold belt and some statement earrings. Don’t forget the red lipstick.
