This summer take your style cues from ladies like Olivia Munn and Jamie Chung, and wear the cutest frocks featuring the big trends seen on the runways. Think polka dots, florals, stripes, tribal, orange — go bold or go home! We’ve compiled a list of shops where you can find your perfect summer dresses, but get them while they’re hot.
Best Saves: Under $100
As your go-to place for an affordable shopping experience, Forever 21 never disappoints with their wide selection, and they’re always on point in keeping up with the trends. That’s why we love ‘em! This summer go for dresses in denim, lace, orange or floral, or choose from little white dresses to long printed maxis.
If you prefer a more vintage-meets-year-2011 style, then Shopruche.com is your new best friend. With “A modern boutique with a vintage touch” as their tag line, they have to be, right? We can’t accept no for an answer, and we definitely can’t see you saying “no” to their dresses. Go for hot trends such as two of our favorites: stripes and polka dots.
We’re adding another online boutique to your shopping list. Fredflare.com lives up to the “flare” with its fun and flirty dresses. Style them with this year’s choice of footwear, wedges, and you’re good to go! But hurry, they do sell fast. Are we surprised?
Splurge: Over $100
With their elaborate window displays, Anthropologie draw our eyes and then immediately capture our hearts with their lovely clothing, accessory and home items. We’ve already told you what summer trends to look out for, but instead of wearing just one trend, why not combine two or three? Try their orange Horkelia Shift dress in lace (also in white) or the Back View Dress that’s multi-colored and multi-printed.
We’ve said “Go bold or go home,” but you can still make a fashion statement by keeping it light on your style choices. It is summer after all and you do want to stay cool. If that’s the case, go for a big trend like white dresses. Canadian-base online shop Aritzia gives you what you want.
The great thing about shopping at ASOS is how easy it is to navigate their site. There is something for everyone at ASOS, but you can narrow down your choices by color, price, brand, celebrity or style type. One trend we’re loving is tribal print because you can wear it in different ways: mix it with unexpected style like going preppy or add a bit of masculine element with military-inspired jackets for those breezy days.
Now that we’ve given you some inspiration, tell us which trend will you wear this summer?
