One of my favorite things about summer fashion is all of the dresses you can wear. Flowy, lightweight dresses are the perfect thing to get you through the intense heat of the dog days, and they make getting dressed incredibly easy. Dresses have been my life savers plenty a time when I was under a time crunch and couldn’t figure out what to wear. Even boys don’t have the luxury of being able to throw on one item of clothing and instantly have a whole outfit.
Not only are dresses easy, they are also fun and flirty. I always feel my most confident and pretty while wearing one, whether it be an LBD, a maxi dress or a sundress. Right now I especially love off the shoulder dresses like the one this Fashionista is wearing. They are a little more elegant, but they are still playful at the same time. This one from TOBI is exactly like the one pictured. I’m obsessed with the lace detailing on the sleeves. I also love this cold shoulder dress from ASOS. Since the top of one’s chest and shoulders are exposed with this type of dress, a statement necklace is the perfect accessory. This Fashionista chose a coral inspired gold necklace and decided to keep the rest of her accessories simple. Her tan Tory Burch cross-body bag and sandals are the perfect complements to the rest of her outfit.
Shirts that bare your shoulders have also been trending this past year and are the perfect going out tops. Wear this cropped one with high-waisted jean shorts for a concert or music festival, this one with a skirt and big necklace for a night out and this sweater with skinny jeans and boots for a dinner with girlfriends or a date in the fall.
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Dresses, especially summer dresses, are my favorite pieces of clothing that I own because you can dress them up with wedges for a night out with the girls or you can dress them down with a cute pair of sandals.”
