Summer 2016 is approaching really quickly, so there is no better time to purchase some staple dresses that you will want to wear for the hot days and warmer nights. Whether you are planning a lot of backyard get-togethers (I’ve still not been to my first BBQ of 2016 yet!) or you have a lot of Summer parties lined up, I’ve rounded up some styles of dresses below to consider when it comes to adding new items to your wardrobe. I’ve recently been shopping at some of my favourite sites, like Ax Paris, where the latest fashions are always easy to find and suit my super girly style.
A Boho Tie-Dye Dress
Let your inner peace-loving hippie shine through with a sexy yet simple tie-dye dress that can be worn by day and by night. This casual, colourful look is ideal for the summer, when you can take things easy and when you don’t always have to focus on glamming up your look. A simple pair of flat sandals or a pair of wedge heels will pair perfectly with this dress, which is sure to show off your curves and keep you cool.
A Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are easy to find, affordable, and look great on every body type. Purchase a few different styles so that you always have a cute dress to wear, whether you are headed to the office, you’re getting ready for date night, or you are planning on having a fun day out in the sun with friends.
A high-neck maxi dress is a bit more glamorous for a night time event, whereas one with thin straps or no straps at all is better for a daytime event. On the other hand, a floor-sweeping design is sure to make a bold statement and grab everyone’s attention. You can even find really sexy maxi dresses with slits up one or both sides so you can show off your legs and your shoes. And, speaking of shoes, you can wear pretty much any style with these dresses, from flat sandals to high, thick heels.
A sundress is a yet another must-have dress for this coming summer season when you will be spending a lot of time in the hot summer sun. Stay cool and look great in a sundress of any length that makes you feel confident and comfortable, but stick with dresses that are feminine in both cut and design. Also, stick with sundresses that are made using only lightweight material, as this will help keep you cooler as well, whether you are attending a party at a friend’s house or you are having dinner outside at your favourite restaurant. ‘Dress’ up this type of dress with a pair of classy heels and you are sure to feel like a movie star.
Regardless of what styles of summer dresses you prefer, this is the perfect season to show off some skin, as well as a great tan. So whether you go for a pretty little sundress, a strapless maxi dress, or a relaxed and fun boho dress, one thing is for certain: aim to feel like your best ‘you’, confident and cool in your more suited style of dress.
