Now that the clocks have moved forward one hour and the thermometer is rising, it is time for a wardrobe check. Perhaps some of your favourite dresses, shorts and tops still fit you from last year and you want to recycle them to save some cash; alternatively, perhaps it is time to splash out on a new wardrobe and make sure you are up to date with the latest fashions. If you have not already bought a summer dress, there are plenty to choose from in high street stores and online.
Lace is back
One unlikely trend for 2019 is the lace dress. Lace is back with a vengeance and is a lightweight and feminine fabric that allows your skin to breathe. It is also versatile, enabling you to team it with high heels or more casual flats. If you go for the white lace look, you can perfectly encapsulate that strawberries and cream Wimbledon vibe. Lace dresses come in a variety of styles, from knee length to below the calf, and can be tapered at the waist or left to flow in the breeze.
If white isn’t your thing, there is plenty of scope to branch out with neon. This is a very 1980s trend but the bright colours are perfect for the summer months. Wear a neon bodycon-style dress with simple footwear, accessorise with earrings and bangles and you are in full 1980s flow.
Floral dresses are a staple
Floral dresses are must-have items. They are a superb staple, especially for the festival season, and go with just about any kind of footwear, including wellington boots. Summer, of course, means it is time to air those maxi dresses. A fantastic summer look is to team a maxi dress with a pair of fashionable sandals or espadrilles. A wide range of maxi dresses can be purchased from a range of retailers, such as www.axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses.
According to Star 2.com, safari-style animal print is set to bring out the wild in the femme fatale this summer, enabling a bold wardrobe to open up.
Whether mini, midi or maxi, a dress should make you feel confident and sexy. Above all, a dress should capture your personality. Dresses are wonderfully versatile, which means you can wear them with anything from sandals to boots.
