We are right in the middle of summer, which not only means beautiful weather, but beautiful dresses. The summer dress is a staple of the season. Check out some ways you can wear your old favorite dresses, as well as some of our new favorites you can add to your collection. Let’s dive in!
What to Wear in Summer
Summer means that there are all sorts of options of clothing, but nothing beats a dress in the summer. From short dresses to flowy summer chiffon dresses, there is something for every style out there.
I recommend mixing up the types of dresses that you wear, not only for variety, but because there are so many different dresses that you can find the perfect one for each occasion. If you are going out to a more formal event or restaurant, try out a long dress, or go for a short dress for just grabbing coffee with a friend. Take sleeves into account, too. Cap sleeves or butterfly sleeves on a dress can make it look completely different tan sleeveless or spaghetti top.
Tips on Wearing a Summer Dress
Are you wondering what tips you can use to up your style this summer? Look no further. Here we will help you figure out what to wear and how to style your favorite summer dresses.
What to Wear
There are not much more beloved summer dress options than floral summer dresses. Try out florals in both small and large prints, subtle and bold. Flowers not your style? That’s okay, try another bold print or opt for a solid color option. No matter what you choose, there is definitely a summer sun dress that will make you look and feel amazing.
How to Style
Want to switch up how you wear your summer dresses? Well, there are countless ways.
- Add on a belt. Try adding a belt to your outfit to get a new look. Wear a belt around the smallest part of your waist for the most flattering look, and that basic summer dress looks entirely new.
- Try a button down shirt. A plaid patterned button down shirt, or a solid color like a chambray shirt, can completely mix up your look. Try combining a patterned shirt with a solid color dress, and a solid colored dress with a patterned shirt.
- Add in some jewelry. Accessorizing with jewelry can totally change up the look of an outfit. Try out different options with your dresses- bold earrings or a delicate necklace, chunk bracelets or dangling earrings can all elevate your look to a whole new level.
