Spring into a Floral Dress!
Floral dresses are a must-have this spring and summer. From the 70’s vibe, a sporty and feminine flare to a classic, casual and even laid back look - there are endless ways you can add your own style to your floral prints. Paired with heels or ballet flats, a blazer or bomber jacket – here are some styles that we can all have fun with now that spring has sprung.
Classic Button Down
This classic collared, full button-down shirtdress works well with boyish, straight up and down body types. Bold prints will add a little oomph to your look while solid fabrics may drown you out. If you do opt for a more vibrant fabric, keep your accessories neutral to ensure your look is nice and balanced. A cute look to try? Pair Converse sneakers with one of these dresses for daytime and then throw on sandals in the evening.
There’s nothing I love more than throwing on an easy, oversized shirtdress when I’m headed out to an event. Don’t be afraid to add some height with a significant heel to lengthen you out a bit. To help you avoid looking “boxy’, I would go for at least a three inch heel! Put your cash and phone in a structured clutch, throw on a choker necklace and shades and you will be turning heads.
Long tight sleeves can make an outfit dressier for a wedding, brunch or morning meeting. Long loose sleeves can create a breezy look and make a dress look more casual. Sleeves also free you up from bringing along a sweater or jacket on a chillier day. Consider them! It can take your look to the next level.
Cinched at the Waist
Create shape with dresses that cinch at the waist! It accentuates the hips and, because it doesn’t lay flat on the body, it can hide any unwanted belly budge. Try pairing different belts with your dress to add your own personal style while adding a functional element. This silhouette is especially flattering on pear-shaped and hourglass figures.
And finally, always remember that it’s less about what you wear and more how you wear it.
