Oh dresses, you either love them or hate
them. Personally I am somewhere in between. I used to love a dress back in the
day, went a bit crazy with trousers and now I seem to still opt for a
pair of trousers more often than a dress. Just because they are easier to
style, wearing a pretty dress more than once does get noticed more easily but
fashion rules are made to be broken, correct?
Dresses, however, are my favourite come
spring and summertime. There is just something about a flowy floral dress (try
saying that quickly) that makes me so happy. I had a little browse on Zaful and
came across a few dresses that I would love to wear this summer.
If there is such a thing as transitional dresses, think darker colours like burgundy or denim ones that are less obvious
than floral ones. Burgundy is actually one of my favourite colours, even in
spring I love to wear the deeper shade of red. It just looks so classy. When
opting for a darker colour, the shape of the dress will have to make it obvious
that spring is indeed on your mind. Definitely avoid anything velvet, instead satin or
strappy dresses will be more suitable.
If colour isn’t really your thing, denim
dresses are a really cute option as well. On colder days you can even wear a
crisp white shirt underneath. These dresses are definitely not for hot summer
days though, as denim can be quite hot and the lack of stretch very
uncomfortable. I found really cute denim dresses here, which will be perfect
Dresses that scream summer
Unlike darker colours and denim, lace and
floral dresses are the ambassadors of summers. What says summer more than a
dress so cute you don’t know what is sweeter, your ice-cream with sprinkles or
the dress… Personally, I am not a big fan of lace for during the day. I think
it has to be absolutely right in order not to be too tacky. But I found a
really nice tea length dress that is just so chic; I would happily make an
exception for this dress. (Click here to see the lace dresses).
Yes, floral dresses are much more up my street come summertime. I don’t care if sometimes it is a very thin line
between grandma’s curtains and a cute dress. If it is long, flowy and floral I
am going to wear it. I just can’t help myself.
Which style is your favourite for
