Style Guide: Take A Spin In A Sundress

There are certain fashion staples that will literally never go out of fashion. This a big plus if you're on a budget because you can invest once and keep them in your wardrobe knowing full well that you'll always be on trend! From monochrome to white shirts, a LBD and red dress too, one of my favorite recurring fashions is the flirty sundress.

Ultra-flattering no matter your body shape, there is a staple sundress to suit everyone. A little curvy? Rock those curves with a lower neckline and a flared skirt. Tall and athletic? A bodycon sundress is the cure for your summer day 'what to wear' headache.

I'm loving this season's take on this fashion staple, and I'll be lining my wardrobe with a few of these picks below…

 

Bright & Beautiful Sundress

Summer is made for a flash of color and drama, and I love, love, love, this flirty striped sundress. The neckline is a little unusual which is what makes it stand out and the length is ideal for all body shapes because the sweeping skirt hides a multitude of sins. Pair it with brightly colored pumps and paint those toes in a dramatic shade - the more of a clash, the better!

Sundress With A Little Bit Of Drama 

Who said that sundress fashion had to fit a mold? I love to go against the grain, and this dramatic blush sundress can easily take you from daytime to night-time, with a pair of skyscraper heels to help with the transition. The side split gives you a hint of sexiness, but the dramatic sleeves take the stage pulling this fun look together. Divine!

Dainty Sundress

The basis of a sundress is dainty and fun, and this cute option ticks not only the sundress option but the off-the-shoulder trend too! Another big plus - No awkward strap tan marks. Again, pair it with flats for day or throw on a pair of strappy heeled sandals for night to give you a totally flexible outfit.

Fun & Flirty Sundress

Finally, we have the fun and flirty look, which is ideal for everyone, no matter what your size or shape. This long-sleeved sundress shows you that you don't always have to bear a ton of skin just because it's summer, and if you're particularly conscious of your upper arms, this is a great option to give you more comfort in your look. Dress it up with a funky pair of flats for some drama and a pop of color!
