Temps are finally starting to heat up and there are few things I love more than to wear a light and airy summer dress when the sun is out and the days grow longer. From lounging on the back deck, to running to business meetings, I go from being a trouser and blazer kind of gal to an “can I wear a dress everyday” kind of lady! Can anyone else identify?!
Here are a few of my favorite tips and tricks to styling up your summer dresses while trying to beat the heat and still look chic. (yes, that almost rhymed and I’m leaving it! haha!)
Tip No. 1:
Look for a dress that can effortlessly transition from a daytime outing to an evening event with just a few styling tweaks. I love to keep a blazer in my car if I’m out so I can throw it on for a dinner out or an evening with friends.
Tip no. 2
Elevate your summer dresses with a statement necklace, a stack of bangles, or delicate earrings. The right accessories can instantly transform a simple dress into a chic and polished outfit!
Tip No. 3
Lastly, consider your footwear! Choose a shoe that is comfortable but also creates a more elevated look. Anything from a heeled sandal to a flat mule can look sophisticated when it’s made of a quality material!
