The Best Spring/Summer Dresses

I’ve decided that it’s imperative that I invest in a few dresses this season. The options are just too dazzling. We’re talking metallics, whimsical whites, florals etc. You name it, it’s on the street and I need it in my closet.

I’ve picked out my top 6 favorite styles and fabrics including a whimsical white, which will always be in style, a truly timeless and classic piece. I’m also loving denim dresses for their laid back, vintage vibe.

Metallics have been a fun addition this season as well; from shoes, bags, and now dresses. This shift dress is the perfect design for a metallic color because it’s simple but the shimmer is eye-catching. Florals are huge this season as well, especially in more structured looks, like these shirt and body-con dresses. Last but not least we have the off-the-shoulder number from Mango. It’s the perfect throw back to 70’s style, and paired with lace up sandals makes it the quintessential summer look.

Your Guide To The Top 10 Spring/Summer Shoe Must-Haves

Every year we wait eagerly to see what the trends will be come spring and summer, “will those high-waisted denim cut-offs still be trendy? What about those wedged sneakers?” Nothing is more infuriating than investing in something that’s only stylish for a short season before it becomes a faux pas. One season might be sporty and athletic, another might be minimalistic and simple.

This year is no different. We saw colors, suede and texture on the runways this year along with some major street style vibes from fashion bloggers world wide, and it all seems to point in one direction (R.I literal P Zayne?). Apart from still having a foot in the norm core scene, trends seem to swinging back towards a more feminine approach to style with a sprinkling of that 70’s gamine look with a smack of bohemian.

That’s not to say we’ll all be walking around with flowers and feathers in our hair (although nothing surprises me anymore), but you’ll be seeing suede everything, denim everything and white embroidered everything. Along with all of this, naturally, comes the shoes. Though I wouldn’t suggest purchasing 10 pairs of shoes (for your banks sake), I would look at these and find similar items that speak to this seasons trends.

Spring/Summer Trend: The Playsuit

Playsuit, romper, jumpsuit; whatever it’s called, it’s adorable. I love a fun, bright romper because it’s so easy to wear and looks amazing on anyone. You can have a dressy romper or a playful one, and I’d consider this towards the playful, fun day-date weekend look. The reason I chose it for my Spring/Summer Trend collection is because of the material. The bright color, silky material and the pattern feel like a 1950’s vintage beach girl, which I love. Any romper that has a burst of color, pattern or texture will be trending this season.

I added a trench coat because it tones down the busy-ness of the romper and gives it a more mature approach. The clutch compliments the material on the pattern and the sandals are those wardrobe staple leather sandals that every girl should own. Perfect for a balmy spring day! The earrings add to that boho vibe and with hair worn loose and wavy, will complete the look entirely.
