Stylish Women’s Dresses: Summer Must-Haves for 2019
Dresses are indispensable for staying cool, especially with the summer season as its zenith. Made with different types of fabric like linen and cotton, the material construction of summer dresses is made specifically to beat the summer heat while providing women feminine, stylish garments. To stay both chic and cool throughout the warmer months, here are dresses that are sure to elevate your summer street style:
Body-con dresses are no longer just for a girls’ night out. Made of light and breathable fabrics dyed in beautiful colors such as pale blue, green gingham, and sand, clingy knits make for the most stylish women’s outfits for summer. This chic comeback of the tight-knit is just in time for you to flaunt your beach-ready bod this summer!
The Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are finally getting a dose of cool and casual, and we’re head-over-heels about maxi dresses as of the moment! You certainly won’t feel overwhelmed when you are strutting around town in day-time prints and low-key, pastel colors. You have many options as well from floor-length wrapped and tied to tiered maxis.
Smocked- and shirred-bodice dresses are some of the most popular dresses this season, and they’re coming in various dainty patterns and colors! Their flowy skirts and flexible, fitted tops are key for keeping cool, comfortable, and relaxed while modestly covered even on a hot summer’s day.
A plain, simple dress in white does not look like much; however, it is perfect if you are on the lookout for a cure-all for your summer street style problems. This summer must-have is not just appropriate for just about any summer occasion, but it also offers endless accessorizing options. Swap your footwear, then pair with a bag appropriate for your destination. We guarantee your simple white dress feels like brand-new every single time.
Although white is not always the easiest to wear, go for it this summer if you are willing as it’s most certainly time for it. Linen white dresses have the most power in looking chic and sophisticated.
Sweetheart necklines, puffed sleeves, romantic florals, and dainty straps will convince you to get on board with one of the season’s most desirable silhouettes, the prairie dress. As seen on OTL influencers, this swoon-worthy dress is back for another summer fling.
Wrap dresses are known for being workday and weekend staples; however, this summer, their silhouette is getting a ‘dress up’ to transition into evening mode. Wrap dresses in silks or sequins can take any fashionable woman from a girls’ night to a candlelight dinner with ease.
For those who are looking for a more playful style this summer, peplum dresses are perfect. Details can be under the bust, around the shoulders or neck, below the waist or at the hips. The silhouette of a peplum dress is suitable for daytime to a nighttime look. Simply swap out your flats to a pair of spiky heels. You will make your legs look longer with a waist that’s nipped and tiny.
Empire Waist Dress
The empire waist dress is yet another that’s making a comeback this summer. It gathers just under the bust which is the slimmest part of a woman’s torso. This creates an extra flattering effect. Give this summer must-have a try if you have a smaller torso as this dress can pinch your abdomen and give a flare at just the right places. It is perfect for petite women as it elongates the bottom half of the body, giving the illusion of impossibly long legs.
The Sheath Dress
Looking for a dress that can put your gorgeous, enviable curves in the limelight? If so, then this women’s dress is perfect for you. It flatters stylish women with the coveted hourglass figure as it is form-fitting, has a straight cut, and nipping at the waistline. As a sheath dress does not have any visible seam, it will sit just above or at the knee, ideal for a night out or a business event.
One look at a high-low dress and you are instantly reminded of summer. This asymmetrical dress is shorter in the front and longer from behind. Its shape allows it to be a casual version of a ball gown. If you have sexy pins, we’re urging you to give this stunner a shot. Pair it with platforms or high heels so the longer portion of the dress doesn’t touch the ground.
A-line dresses fit at the hips, then gradually flare towards the hem. They are perfect for casual settings and dressing down (or even up) with ease. This particular type of women’s clothing is most suitable for pear-shaped women as it adds a touch of femininity and shows off the shoulders.
