The good thing about these is that they look astonishing on everyone, which means that you can wear it no matter your body type. The adjustable string tie closure around the waist will emphasize your waist, whereas a deep V neckline will add a sexy, jaw-dropping vibe to your overall outfit.

When you look at its front part, it’ll seem completely simple and normal. However, the real party starts at the back, as the mid portion of your back will be totally exposed, resulting in an extremely sexy look perfect for summer. When it comes to prints, we must say that white stars on the black background should be your first choice if you want to go for an attractive appearance that will catch everyone’s attention. You won’t go wrong with such a print!

As for the style, we must say that the 90s are making a huge comeback this year, which is what you should go for a dress which is the epitome of that era. Adjustable spaghetti straps are unavoidable, and the only thing you should do is to pick the preferred print. From super trendy animal and floral prints to monochromatic looks, you won’t regret it whichever model you choose, so pick one according to your preferences and rock this style this summer!

One Style 4 looks

STYLE

The Top Knot

From super slicked back, to loose and dishevelled, the top knot is still a favourite for work, party or just hanging out.

Placement is key when creating a top knot, it should sit flat on the top of your head and not too far back on your head and the hair in the back must be completely smooth.

Once your hair is up in a ponytail backcomb the ponytail for fluffiness and then twist the hair around your elastic band and secure with hair pins. Use hairspray to hold it all in place.

Look Taller, short girls, wearing your hair in a top knot gives the impression that you are taller as it creates a vertical line and adds inches to your size.

SUMMER STYLIN’

With summer fast approaching there is an influx of special occasions to dress up for, from the races to weddings to hen parties. We all get excited for an excuse to get our glad rags on and get all dolled up to have fun with friends and loved ones. But before you go weaving in and out of the rails searching endlessly for that perfect outfit, here's some inspiration to get you started.

 

 

 

Monochrome Copy

MONOCHROME

So if you want to go for a fresh summer look, a monochrome dress is a great choice. Whether it's a print or plain, it'll look great against your (hopefully) sun kissed skin, and leaves you open to glam it up with bright accessories. The cut of the first dress is flawless with its open sides and high neck, the perfect balance of sophisticated yet sexy. The marble swirled print dress is very flattering with its layered waist and asymmetric design. For an event like the races or a wedding opt for a more delicate sandal style shoe. If you feel daring enough, the pure white dress is simple yet stunning and a great option in the hot weather. Monochrome floral prints are gorgeous, look bang on trend this season wearing them in a dipped hem or Bardot style.

Print Copy

PRINT

Of course bright and bold prints are always something you want to wear when the sun comes out, expressing that fabulous feeling the good weather brings. Busy florals are a popular option, as are graphic geometrics. The halter neck style daisy dress with skater skirt is great for a fun and feminine look. The A-line dress with geometric patterns is a fabulous look for those who prefer to wear something a little less figure hugging but still flattering. Feel like a hippy princess in the washed out floral stripe maxi dress. A little less bold, the spring green dress with scattered floral print is the picture of elegance with its high neck and midi length. Make the most of high neck style dresses with a classy updo.

Nudes and Pales Copy

NUDES AND PALES

Dresses in more subtle tones can be just as striking as bold and vibrant hues. There is beauty in simplicity, and with a natural makeup palette and some classy accessories, you can guarantee an elegant and feminine look. From the draped pale pink style above, to the sweet powder blue ensemble with pretty capped sleeves, to the embellished peach beauty, the selection above will suit various shapes and tastes.

Happy shopping!!
