Aug. 26, 2010 No Comments Posted under: Dresses

It’s shaping up to be a beautiful summer and no doubt you want to be out there enjoying yourself in the lovely weather. Whether you’re attending a formal party or a barbeque, nipping out for lunch with the girls or wanting to run to the shops looking stylish, there is a dress trend this season that is perfect for you! Check online for great offers on summery dresses. Trendy and stylish dresses are both designer and high-street.

Tunic dresses are at the height of comfortable fashion this season. Tunic dresses are extremely easy to wear and give an instant classic look, similar to the style of an oversized boyfriend shirt or t-shirt dress. This style of dress is loosely fitted and usually just above knee length, and can be gathered at the waist if you want to tighten it up a bit with an appropriate waist belt. An added bonus of the tunic or shirt dress is that it can be worn over leggings, or even jeans, so can be perfect for slightly cooler summer days.

Strapless dresses remain consistently popular this year. The most common style seen on celebs and on the runway at the moment is the strapless cocktail dress, with a tight fitting bodice and a slightly outward turning skirt, giving your lower half some volume. These dresses are usually no longer than knee length and show off your legs beautifully. Popular styles for the summer are floral and animal prints.

The maxi dress has recently exploded onto the fashion scene, with everyone who is anyone having been spotted in one at some point or another. Maxi dresses are usually sleeveless and may come in strappy or halter neck styles. They are ankle length and usually extremely colourful, with bold prints like peacock feathers or tropical flowers. Maxi dresses should be accessorised with similarly bold, chunky jewellery, and look great with flip flops!

For a comfortable and glamorous look, the bubble dress is an inspired choice. Bubble dresses are defined by their ballooning hem, giving them a wide, voluminous skirt. Some choose to reign in some of the extra volume with a chunky waist belt, which can give a very interesting silhouette. Bubble dresses have been popular for some time now and can be matched with bare legs or with tights depending on the level of dressiness you are aiming for.

Halter neck dresses were first made famous by Marilyn Monroe, and their popularity has remained consistent every since. The shape of a halter neck can differ from a maxi dress to a bubble dress, but the halter neck strap has a way of flattering every woman’s body shape.

One of these styles could be the dress for you this summer, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for this season’s hottest trends in the stores.
