If clothes had a Beauty Pageant Contest my money would be on DRESSES. Just think about it: are they not the one piece we always go to when we wanna be headache-free style wise? Unlike jeans or tops or skirts, which all require a pairing item, dresses… you just need to slap ’em a pair of shoes and a bag, and finito! Also, they go in any season and for any occasion.
But thank God there is no such contest, otherwise we’d probably end up in marshmallows, cupcakes and candies, and I’m not talking sweets, but dresses so sweet it’d either make normal people throw up, or 40 year old women who’d wear them look well… ridiculous. And that’s a very nice way of putting it.
Courtesy of the times we’re in though, everything can live side by side with anything, and when it comes to dresses, this summer screams so many styles it’s a blessing. It’s like the fashion gurus have finally decided to stop niche-ing and just give the women what they want and are comfortable with. You’re a sexy perfect Goddess with flawless armpit long legs, great bum and… ? I’ll just stop here. We get the picture.
Then, you can of course flaunt your stuff in any dress style, micro-minis included. If however, you’re more on the human teeny tiny flawed side, (1) YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and (2) perfection is boring, so find the dress you like and rock the shit out of it cause you’ll probably look bloody amazing. The key is to find a style that fits your body type and enhance that part of your body you’re totally in love with.
WHITE DRESSES. Doh. Summer’s most coveted style the white dress is the ultimate beauty when it comes to summer dresses. It’s crisp, fresh, classy, feminine, sexy, and enhances your sunkissed skin like nothing else. It goes with anything (yes even boots and leather jackets), and can go anywhere as well.
FLIRTY DRESSES. Think chiffon and silky fabrics in all the possible cuts, colors, prints and styles. These dresses have a very girly vibe to them with a twist of hotness or boho-chicness and are perfect for summer dinners, parties, and casual day times around town.
BEACH SUMMER DRESSES. No summer is EVER complete without these, and the more color wild, printed, white, and short they are the better. I love these in thin straps, neon crazy shades, cutouts, with a bit of a frill to them. AND some of these styles can easilty translate to casual daytime, and even cocktails on the beach for evening.
FLORAL SUMMER DRESSES. The definition of summer lies in these colored flowers-exploded-on-your-dress style. They’re great for work, for laid back feminine looks, for weekends, for events… It’s usually the go-to piece of summer that every girls should own.
