Dressing Up: 3 Key Dresses For Spring / Summer

Unless you have a house the size of the Beckham’s and a budget to match then you need to get a little creative with a few basic staples in your wardrobe.  With spring nipping at our toes and summer only a few (ok quite a few) months away, it’s time to think about the dress.

Some girls refuse to wear dresses, and that ok, however with the various styles, shapes and cuts there really is a dress for every woman.  It’s all about how you wear it that makes it look girly cute or bang on fashion siren.  Let’s take a look at three dresses you should have in your wardrobe.

Denim Dresses

One of the best crossover dresses which can be worn throughout the seasons is the Denim Dress.  Whilst denim has been at the heart of fashion since the 1950’s and most of us will have our favourite pair of jeans, fewer will own a dress made from this fantastically versatile fabric.

Best worn with lots of chunky statement accessories, you can mix it up with tribal style or opt for a more Beyonce charm by sticking to large gold pieces.  Depending on what you are dressing for you can go bare legged with a pair of brown wedges, or you could play it down with some leggings thrown under it and a pair of cute ballet pumps.  You can also get really wild by super glamming your makeup and throwing on some thigh high boots.  Don’t shy away from this little super power.  Embrace the attitude of denim!

Skater Dresses

Spring is a great time to bust out your florals and the most flattering of all is the skater back dress. One of my personal favourites!  Shorter at the front with a long, almost fishtail back, the flattering style works really well on it’s own or layered up with jeans and a ¾ length basic tee.  For elegant day wear opt for a mid height heel and your hair in a loose bun.  Then to vamp it up in the evening chuck on a leather jacket, a pair of jeans and ramp up your heel height.  You don’t have to stick to florals, go for a solid black for real effortless chic or get up to date with your colour blocking and choose a neon bright.  



Classic White Shirt Dress

The ultimate spring to summer dress has to be the loose white shirt.  Whilst a little bit of a nightmare to keep clean, white is the perfect shade to mix with other styles.  She looks stunning thrown over a lightly tanned bare leg, with a pair of dark brown biker boots and should be on your summer essentials list. Go bold with your accessories but opt for a chic look with golds and silvers.  Strip your makeup back to minimum and try topping the look off with a fedora or cowboy hat.  

With a variety of jackets from denim, to leather you can shake up or rock down any of the dresses mentioned above.  Each can be re worked to go from morning until night and restyled to give a completely different look so can be worn multiple times.

Get creative and get your legs out! Embrace the seasons!
