This season calls for updating your wardrobe with fun and flirty dresses | We tell you how to style them right
Dresses are the perfect choice for summer – easy and relaxed. Many summer dresses can be too basic but styling them with the right shoes and accessories can give your look a complete makeover. We list five of the most trending dress silhouettes and tell you how you can style them to make a statement.
Stepping out for a casual day with friends? Pull out those fancy flats to pair with your shirt dress. Take cues from Rebecca Minkoff’s ankle-strapped ‘Gilles’ espadrilles or patent ‘Smoking’ flats. For a sporty, fun look team the dress with sneakers. Daytime accessories can include colourful tasseled earrings and necklace, while in the evening you can pair your shirt dress with sleek high heels and a statement clutch.
We suggest bright hues and striking prints like paisley, oversized florals and geometric patterns for daywear. Experiment with layering by wearing the dress under a light linen shirt or a sleeveless denim vest. Accessorize your look with some chunky hand cuffs and necklaces. For an evening out pick a maxi dress with side slits and pair it with stilettoes. Take cues from Giambattista Valli and Chloe on how to champion a relaxed-yet-glam look with maximum effect.
Convert the shift dress into your best formal wear. Select a stylish cover-up such as a shrug and layer it over your shift. For evening, get one in a dark shade and pair with stockings. Complete your look with mid or low heel pumps and a statement clutch.
For a day out with your girls choose a graphic-printed midi dress and pair it with sneakers or slip ons. For evening, we suggest an off-shoulder piece in a single, solid colour for a timeless, elegant look. Take inspiration from Prabal Gurung and Hugo Boss. Pair the sexy outfit with layered pieces of dainty jewellery like midi rings and ear studs. Finish the look with a clean, pulled-back bun.
