According to google, its still spring in the southern hemisphere, and summer only starts on 22 December 2019. But it is already so hot and it feels like we are in the depths of summer…
So I want to share the dresses I currently have in my closet for this summer season. (These aren’t new buys, but dresses that I’ve had for a while).
BLACK & WHITE STRIPED FLOOR LENGTH MAXI DRESS
I bought this dress from woolworths a few years back and I still love it. It’s very airy and light. This dress is perfect for a breakfast or brunch outing, and I can spend all day in this dress while I run errands. Comfort on a hundred, really.
If you’re a frequent reader, you know I’m a sucker for striped on clothing. So when I saw this, it was a no brainer. I had to get it.
MAROON MIDI-LENGTH DRESS
I got this from Superbalist toward end of last year and I’m actually obsessed with this. I’ve been able to wear this to work, the mall, church etc. its suitable for any type of outing really, it just depends on how you style it. Very comfortable and allows a breeze… Its definitely not recommended if you’re going to be outside all day on a sunny day, because it is long-sleeved and it can get hot, but its suitable for rainy summer days. My favourite part of this dress is the upper back area.
YELLOW FLORAL FLOOR-LENGTH MAXI DRESS
I go this last summer in Edgars. I have worn it twice so far, because its very bright and so I don’t want to over-wear it. This dress is a bit tight around the torso area, but its super comfortable and airy. Perfect for a walk day at the beach . And I love maxi dresses and skirts, so this dress just added to an already unnecessarily large collection of maxi dresses.
I’m not a fan of bright colours, and this has to be the only orange thing I own, but it is definitely a favourite of mine now.
(I wrote a blog post featuring this dress earlier this year – A SPLASH OF SPRING )
RED SHORT DRESS
A short dress is something I always have, regardless of the season. This dress was purchased from legit and I really love this. Its red, so its a statement colour. This dress is very light and airy as well, and is perfect for a summer afternoon. The dress is a bit short than my usual length for short dresses, and so I can’t really lift my arms up lol. But I really love this loose-fitting number.
The best part about this dress is the sleeves… I don’t have many clothes with such, so this dress also represents me trying some new fits and styles.
I am currently shopping around for some additions, and will probably do a “wishlist for summer dresses” post soon.
So there it is. A few options for summer dresses in my closet. How’s you summer dress collection looking?
