One thing we love about summer dresses is how easy they are. Just slip one on, grab your bag and you’re out the door in style. They can even be easier to slip into than your favorite jeans. Just be sure you have these three styles in your closet, and your summer will be breezy and beautiful.
Lace is an absolute staple of summer style for good reason. On the practical side, the light weight is perfectly suited for warm summer weather. On the stylish side, it can be simultaneously demur & flirty, cute & sophisticated, relaxed & refined. You can even try pairing lace with moto boots and a leather jacket to turn the feminine piece into something more edgy.
Slipping into a bold floral print is like pulling a smile from your closet. The hottest look for this summer is floral patterns on a chic black background. It increases your flower power by giving you a slightly more elegant, formal look that is equally at home in the office, on a date night or at a summer wedding.
Whether you like your stripes bold and bright or soft and sweet, the summer months are the best time to step out of your comfort zone and try something daring as well as the ideal season to wear a little more color. While stripes may seem like the most basic pattern of all, you actually have a world of options to choose from – thick or thin, equal in size or alternate in width and vertical, horizontal or diagonal.
There you have it, three effortless ways to achieve a totally put-together look. When sharing pics of your new summer dress, don’t forget to tag @NatickMall on Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag, #SummerFave.
