Dress-ed for Summer: Summer Dress Trends
Who’s ready to get all dress-ed up this summer? We are! It’s the summer of dresses and we’re helping you enjoy the sunshine in the hottest dress trends. Get ready to get styled with these summer dress trends:
It’s OK to show some skin during summertime not only because it’s fashionable, but also to keep yourself cool. There are many classic sundress necklines including tank-style dresses, spaghetti straps, halters and strapless. When you’re shopping for summer dress trends this year, try something different by looking for off-the shoulder or cut-out shoulder dresses. These straight-from-the-runway looks show off your sexy shoulders and create a beautiful long neckline.
The flowers are in bloom in gardens across the nation and they should be blooming all over your dresses as well. Floral prints are all the rage on the runway so adopt this trend for your summer dresses as well. While you can wear a floral print any way you want, bold tropical floral prints in bright yellows, oranges, greens and pinks are registering hot on the summer trend meter.
Catch a Breeze
When it’s hot outside the last thing you need is a thick fabric sticking to your body. Instead pick breezy styles that flow with your body and caress your curves in all the right ways. Light fabrics, wide skirt lines, ruffles and layers all achieve this comfy casual look.
Accents like lace, cut-outs, sheer overlays and embroidery are flirty and feminine summer dress trends. Look for these details on the sleeves, shoulders, backs and waistlines in particular. Antique with a modern twist is a stunning way to stay on trend this summer.
Pocket full of Sunshine
Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? You have a place to hold your lipstick and you look casual-chic all at the same time. The pocket trend works in a variety of summer dress styles from flowing maxis to sophisticated A-line dresses.
Break it Up
For those of us who need a little help separating our top half from our bottom half, you’re in luck. Ties, belts and built-in waistline dividers are a great look this summer. These style boosters are especially great for women with large breasts or broader upper bodies as they crop the body in a flattering way.
Now that you know what’s hot for the season, we hope you have a blast getting your wardrobe set for these summer dress trends!
