STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dress Me

Summer has been flying in faster than we anticipated these past few weeks. Winter coats have been replaced by light denim jackets, pants swapped out for shorts and dresses have popped up everywhere! That’s right, the season of fun, flirty dresses is upon us once again. Whether you are dressing for a special event, a conservative workplace or even hanging out by the water on the weekends like this Fashionista, a dress is a simple and stylish way to beat the heat.

This Fashionista rocks a flowing and strappy dress, featuring a trend heavy high neckline. Taking much of her inspiration from the ’90s era, her dress reminds me of the triangular shaped, thin strapped tank tops. This of course is a nod to the trends of past few decades. The print is very bohemian, making it great for the festival season and outdoor summer concerts. She pairs the drapey dress with white leather Converse, a cool material alternative to the familiar canvas style. This Fashionista continues the ’90s era vibe with a half up, half down bun and oversized sunglasses, a fun watch and mismatch jewelry that completes the look.

​So, why wear the dress? Dresses are an easy one step outfit. Not only are dresses formal for proms and such, but they can be versatile for the everyday hustle and bustle. Wear a sweet sundress with a light sweater while running to the supermarket for some groceries or a sleek black T-shirt dress for a look that transitions from day to night. Easy never looked so good!
