Summer Dresses, Summer Daze
One of the best things about this summer, in particular, is the 1970's revival. Fringing, beading, and bold colors have been all over the catwalk this year, but you don’t have to spend a small fortune on designer cuts that are less than ethical. The sundress, or summer dress, is a style staple. There are some incredible designs that people are sure to love. One of the great things about the summer dress is that it has a generous cut. So, if you are keen on hiding a multitude of winter sins, there are some stunning women’s summer dresses that you can get your hands on.
From soft cotton, halter neck designs to voile dresses with chunky straps, there is fashion to keep you cool, calm, and collected this summer. The great thing about the summer dress is that it’s the perfect go-to dress. From the office to the bar to the beach, the lined cotton summer dress is incredibly versatile! Team it with a pair of soft, brown leather gladiators and lashings of silver and pewter jewellery for the ultimate bohemian look.
Of course, for a more laid-back, festival vibe it’s all about the cami dress. The bold Aztec designs of last summer will be a huge hit again this year. Opt for bold, statement ethnic jewellery and simple, low slung ankle boots for that ‘straight out of Glastonbury’ feel.
Do the Hula
The 1950s dreamboat and petticoat revival has ensured that everyone can unleash their bold and beautiful selves. There are some fantastic, skater style dresses adorned with loud tropical designs. If you want to remain bang on trend this summer, opt for turquoise blue tones. Turquoise blue is going to be the color of the season. It’s summer in a nutshell. The totally tropical colors are perfect for lays picnics in the park. However, this look is always best with simplistic jewelry. For the day time, opt for classic silver and small charms. But, for a quirky night time look, add lashings of beads. It’s perfect for beer gardens and parks alike!
