When the temperatures inch toward 90 degrees, there’s nothing better to throw on than a trusty, breathable summer dress. This season, more so than usual, there happens to be a plethora of options and decades to cull inspiration from.
For starters, fashion at large seems to be experiencing a Renaissance revival. Sleeves are bigger, necklines are more square in shape, and corsetry is officially back in style (even on the men’s ready-to-wear runways). Summer dresses, in particular, have taken on a Romeo and Juliet–esque bent, with mutton sleeves and cinched-in waists.
On the other hand, and in another era, we’re also still very much living out our old ’90s fantasies, including the Kate Moss–approved ultra-minidress. There are also crafty knit dresses and mixed floral prints that speak to a modern vibe—more 2018 magpie than Marie Antoinette. Whatever your favored style may be, there are more than enough options to refresh your warm-weather wardrobe.
With the hottest season approaching, it's time to get your fly summer dresses ready. And because we are always down for you, I have done a research to find some sizzling hot dresses varying in style and trends. Truth to be told, I made this list for myself because I am addicted to dresses. The ease and effortlessness of throwing on a slinky or form-fitting dress easily shaves off 20 minutes of my morning routine. Whether you are going for a relaxed or romantic feel, summer dresses are definitely the move. From maxi dresses to swing dresses, we got you covered.
Shops are brimming with summer dresses right now. So many, in fact, that the selection can be overwhelming. Where can you find a pick of the best? Right here, of course. Not only have I done a research in terms of key trends for summer, but I’ve also found styles you’ll be wearing way beyond this season. These are frocks you’ll be able to pull out in 2020 and still be smug about how great they are. From classic floral tea dresses to of-the-moment silk slips and off-the-shoulder silhouettes (a trend we don’t see disappearing anytime soon), there’s a style to suit everyone—even those who don’t identify as dress lovers.
Some of my Favorites are:
- 1990's Minis
- Knit Dresses
- Lavender Dresses
- Floral Print Dresses
- Dresses With Pouf Sleeves
- Renaissance Styles
