Summer fashion features a lot of skirts and dresses because they are dead comfy. With the heat wave, the last thing I want to have on is a pair of jeans. You will easily catch me rocking skirts and dresses because they are easiest pieces to wear and style in summer. It is important to dress for your shape. I always have my body shape in mind when shopping for clothing and accessories. As a petite lady, the last thing I need is for clothing to swallow my little frame up! Which is why I go shopping for skirts and dresses that would work with my body shape.
The beauty about skirts and dresses is that they usually tend to suit most body shapes, depending on the style you opt for. If you plan on doing some summer shopping this season, and you have skirts and dresses on your shopping list, here are some tips you may find useful.
Get pretty summer dresses
Shop around for summer dresses that can be styled for daytime and nighttime. Floral is timeless, so opt for floral dresses if possible.
Go for pieces that show off your best parts
If you have amazing long legs, go for mini dresses that would show they off. Buying dresses with classic lines is a smart way to go about this. If you are after showing off some cleavage and shoulders, go for halter-neck dresses, as they would do the work. It is important to buy clothing that will always show your case your best features.
Remember the shirt dress
Having a shirt dress is an essential this summer. I have quite a few in my wardrobe now and I love them. They are dead easy to style and are very comfy to wear this summer. I like the fact that they are multi-tasking pieces. They can be work from season to season with different accessories. They are smart enough to be worn to work and laidback enough for weekends and vacations. I think shirt dresses are a great wardrobe investment. The trick for the shirt dress is to keep it fitted and in subtle colours.
Don’t forget the skirts
I like having skirts in my wardrobe. I wear them a lot in the summer months. The pencil skirt is my favourite. I think it suits my bodyshape so I always go for skirts in that shape. Skirts are very easy to style up and down. A simple top/shirt can be worn with a skirt for a daytime look, and a shimmery sleeveless top for a nighttime look.
How is your summer wardrobe looking? Are you a fan of skirts and dresses in the summer months?
My summer wardrobe is looking very expensive this year as I have bought alot of new clothing. I’m going on holiday this week so new swimwear etc dresses and skirts and various all bought. My wardrobe needed an overhaul so it got one.
I love dresses with a little bit of stretch in them so they are comfy. I’m a big Joe Browns clothing fan so they have done well from me this season. Actually they do well from me most seasons. Alot of my wardrobe is Joe Browns. I love their quirkiness and colours
I love Joe Browns too! Their pieces are so cool!
I am with you on shirt dresses. I have quite a few of them in my closet. I would be needing some new skirts and shorts though. I have lost some weight (because my diabetes was uncontrolled for 4 months. ugh!) so I need to get some that fit me better.
Yes shirt dresses are amazing.
The reason why I Love summer is for light dresses and the reason why I love light dresses is that they are so diverse! You can have dozens of them and they all look different, depending on fabric, colors, model!
I love summer for light dresses too!
Dresses make me love Summer even more! There’s nothing like a Summer dress with a cute pair of sandals!
I agree! Thanks for reading.
