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.

Silk – The New Luxe

There’s something so terrific about wearing silk. It’s one of the softest and coziest (yet most chic), materials to wear, and this season is it’s debut into the lime light. You’ll see this luxe material showcased in high-waisted pants, classic cigarette-leg pants , shorts, blazers, blouses, etc. and we will find no shortage of it in all our favorite stores.

9d4ebbe3e390dc53b38247e07ff02d74Get this chic look for a sunny winter day by pairing high-waisted pants similar to this pair from ShopBop by Rebecca Minkoff, or a slim leg version by Moschino that still has those fun prints and silky feel.  For the top, if you’re trying for something a bit more put together, try something like a cotton top or a knit sweater like this cardi from Zara. A classic structured top would go really well with a trouser that has a fun print. Stella McCartney’s top will add  a touch of class to a fun pant. If you want something more casual a simple crop tee or tank will do the trick. Try this cropped tee from Top Shop.

If  wearing a pair of bold trousers doesn’t quite fit your modus apparendi, then try a fun blouse instead. If wearing bold colors, period, isn’t your thing, then ease into it by wearing something subtle at first. There’s no end to the attractiveness of a woman who wears something with confidence that stands out.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with new things and putting together different outfits. You’ll feel a boost in your self-esteem and your peers will definitely notice that new smile on your face.
