Summer Dressing

For me, summertime = dresses. They're an outfit all in one piece; what could be better?! My go-to dresses of the season are body-con, slip, and maxi. While searching the web for my favorites, I discovered Nasty Gal, Topshop, ASOS, and Zara had the best selections. I swear by Topshop's and ASOS' petite lines. 


My favorite body-con dresses have interesting details. I loved the strappy halter style of the navy Nasty Gal dress. It would look great with a pair of silver heels. The bell sleeves of the white dress really caught my eye. It feels a bit '70s and a bit French all at once. The grey ribbed lace-up dress from Topshop is perfect for hot summer days. I'd wear it casually with sneakers or sandals. 


Slip dresses are the dress of the moment. Celebrities like Zendaya, Selena Gomez, and Rihanna are bringing back the '90s silhouette. I have purchased a couple slip dresses this season, one being this silky Topshop mini dress. I really like the Nasty Gal v-neck slip with lace details and navy blue slip with double straps as well. 


I've also been into maxi dresses lately. They can be dressed up or down, especially when they're made of fabrics like silk or a cotton knit. Because I'm petite, I tend to gravitate towards solid colors. I find wearing one tone gives the illusion of being taller. I fell in love with the lace trim maxi from Topshop. It has a romantic and soft look about it that's perfect for summer. The black ASOS halter maxi dress with a side slit is perfect for day or night, and the white one from Zara with a crochet bodice is very beachy and bohemian. 

What is your favorite style dress to wear in the summertime?
