Summer Dress Lovin’

Summer is slowing creeping upon us and I can’t wait for the sun to arrive in full force.  In preperation, I scoured my favorite online retailers, from ASOS to Need Supply Co., in search of the perfect summer dress.

As I started picking out my favorites, I noticed a trend with my choices.  They were either corset topped (or sweetheart neckline, if you prefer that terminology), striped (of course), or wildly printed.  So I narrowed it down to my favorite 3 in each of these categories:

The corset top dress is perfect for afternoon barbecues or picnics in the park with friends.  They’re so sweet and summery:

  1. Urban Renewal Striped Linen Bustier Dress, Urban Outfitters, $58
  2. Dahlia Net Layer Babydoll Dress, ASOS, $118.36
  3. Chambray Corset Dress, Victoria’s Secret, $39.99

These striped dresses can be worn during work hours or even on weekend beach trips.  They’re versatile and never go out of style:

  1. Dahlia Striped Full Belted Dress, ASOS, $93
  2. Striped Knit Dress, Need Supply Co., $48
  3. LnA Stripe Tee Dress, Revolve Clothing, $105

Even though the prints vary, they all pack a colorful punch – exactly what you need in the summer months!  I would wear the sweeter prints (like the florals and polka dots) during the day and the bolder prints (like the zig zag) for a night of cocktails with friends or on a date with my boyfriend:

  1. Contrast Pocket Dress, Need Supply Co., $48
  2. Dahlia Vintage Print Belted Dress, ASOS, $93
  3. Marc by Marc Jacobs Diamond Zigzag Dress, Shopbop, $258
