We’re all about dresses this summer! And whether you’re donning on that prairie dress on trend this season, the nap dress to lounge around the house, or a caftan for a spontaneous, last-minute beach trip, we’ve got you covered! We’ve rounded up seven different ways you can style your dress this summer, other than pairing it with high heels!
Looking for a different way to wear your dress this summer? Get inspo from celebrities and influencers! Here are 7 ways you can style your summer dress.
Take a cue from model momma Irina Shayk, as she layers an oversized button-up shirt over her mini bodycon dress. Who says button-ups are only for business occasions? Pair them with platform sandals or sneakers to complete the casual look. Don’t forget to accessorize!
Haven’t you heard? Babydoll dresses with puffed-up sleeves are in this summer! Give this soft, romantic dress some edge, and pair it with black leather ankle boots and a choker to accessorize. Now it’s perfect for a night out with your girlfriends, or even a lunch out.
Caftans are great, comfortable clothing pieces for lounging around or as a bikini coverup. But, style it up a bit, and you have an outfit for a casual day out. Style it with a multilayered or long necklace, wear a matching bangle, and finish off with a pair of Doc Martens in the same hue, and you’re good to go!
We love, love, love how blogger and influencer Jessie Bush styled this Prarie maxi dress to make it look more of an upstyled casual outfit!
Go Bold or Go Home
Nothing screams summer than bold colors. If you have a colorful patterned dress hanging in your closet, this season is the perfect opportunity for it to see the sun! If it’s more of a solid color, match it with bold-colored sunnies, bag, and shoes that perfectly complement your dress.
Wait, leather doesn’t go well with hot weather, right? But it still looks so darn good! Look for an oversized (faux or vegan) leather jacket to layer over a sleeveless maxi slip dress. Complete the look with a pair of leather (again, faux or vegan, please!) pointed ankle boots and accessorize with chokers or short-lined necklaces.
A dress simply paired with strap sandals doesn’t really get the double-take you’re hoping for. But, complete the look with a statement accessory, and eyes would be on you. It screams the “effortless, yet put together” kind of look.
