I just LOVE the summer and wearing summer dresses – they’re so easy to wear, comfortable to be in and super easy to dress up or down – pretty much perfect for any occasion. Here’s my top tips for styling up your summer dress so that you’ll look amazing!
Do Summer Dresses the Casual Way
Hair is one of my favourite things to style to complete and outfit. For a casual summer look, styling your hair needn’t be hard. My favourite go too summer look is wavy hair chucked up in a messy pony tail or bun, it’s a simple style and can be finished off with a bandana head band the same colour as the dress for a twist.
Shoes are also a big element of a look, since it’s summer and I tend to prefer breathable light shoes I usually go for a nude sandal which is simple and goes with many colours. However, I’ve been leaning towards sliders as they are super comfy and you can find a variety of designs too match an outfit, they are also the perfect casual look especially in hot weather.
I am a big make up fan and love to look glam. However for a casual look in hot weather I tend to either go for no makeup with curled eyelashes and lipgloss. Sometimes I do a simple ‘everyday makeup’ look – so – concealer, light eyebrows and mascara. I also finish it off with a bit of highlighter as I love the glow when the sun catches it.
For a casual summer dress look you don’t need a huge amount of accessories, I would wear a simple bandana headband, which gives a good summer look or I would simply add my Apple Watch and some sunglasses to my outfit so I’m still keeping it casual.
Do Summer Dresses the Glam Way
For a dressed up event I tend to put more effort and thought into my hair, I like to curl the ends of my hair either with straighteners or a curling wand and then brush through my hair or sleep on the curls to create a loose beach waves look.
I go more glam with the shores – I tend to wear wedged sandals or gladiator style sandals as they look great paired with a summer dress.
I love taking the opportunity to do full makeup with eyelashes, highlighter the lot. However if you aren’t a huge fan off full makeup keep it simple but add lots of glow with highlighter and don’t forget to do great brows.
I love the look of rose gold watches, bracelets and anklets paired with summer dresses as they look really girly and light, so perfect for summer. Always add a nice bag too – something with a little sparkle or fun and one that definitely fits your phone in it.
