There are three types of dresses you need to get you through the summer. The shape and cut should vary to suit your shape - I always opt for a skate or something to cover the tum-tum area, but this is just my preference. I'm going to skim through the three dresses to get you through the summer in this post.
Hand in hand with the LBD is the Little White Dress. This one is a crochet number from H&M. The photo's don't really show the crochet/lace detailing, I apologise, I tried to edit it but it was just too bright against the backdrop! This dress is the all-round decent day-dress. The white shows off a summer glow, and you can team this with anything from flip flops to heels. It's a brilliant go-to for literally any occasion, and the crochet detailing is what really makes it a seasonal piece
I've teamed it with my silver flats from ASOS, which I absolutely love at the moment. I wore this dress to death on holiday, it really made my summer.
The little black dress will see you through dinners, nights out, and any other after-dark debauchery. Mine is from Oh My Love, and I've styled it on my Primarni mules. A good LBD will carry you through any evening event this summer so it should be short, floaty and breezy. If the night gets chillier, opt for a light duster jacket or a kimono to layer up.
The Wedding-Appropriate Dress.
Weddings are a nightmare (to dress for), and summer is heaving with them. It's highly inappropriate to wear white, but wearing black is superstitiously bad luck. Florals are your best bet, and pastel tones that suit your skin tone.
Again, my dress is from Oh My Love. I'm not naturally a fan of wearing anything anything that is not monochrome or neutral coloured, but this pastel pink isn't loud enough to turn me away. I've paired it with a pair of shoes gifted to me a while ago from Simmi Shoes. This dress isn't just wedding-appropriate, it's a good option for dinners again, classy outdoor lunch do-s, BBQs, birthdays etc. I'd team it with a lightweight cardigan.
