3 best warm weather dresses

off%20the%20shoulderWhen things start to warm up outside, you want your wardrobe to follow suit. This year, there are a few different dresses that you need to add to your closet that will keep you feeling cool while looking fabulously fashionable.

Take a look at these top dress styles for the the coming season.

The Off-the-Shoulder Dress
Off-the-shoulder dresses have come back in a big way this season. They’re a trendy way to show off a bit of skin in a way that won’t leave you feeling overexposed. According to My Fashion Life, Kate Beckinsale perfectly demonstrated the trend at the New York premiere of her latest movie, Love and Friendship.

“Shoulders are having a major fashion moment,” My Fashion Life wrote. Beckinsale rocked the trend “in a simple yet sophisticated off-shoulder navy mermaid dress by Vatanika teamed with fishnet Louboutin heels adding a touch of goth glam to the look with black nail polish.”

Follow her premiere style and you can’t lose.

There’s two kinds of shirt dresses. The first looks like an oversized T-shirt, with its loose lines and comfy, relaxed feel. You can usually find them in everything from cotton blends, to a jersey knit fabric. They’re fairly casual, but they’re certainly cute enough to wear out for a day of shopping or a girls’ night in.

The other is a button-up variety that’s either fitted throughout the bodice or cinched with a belt to accentuate the wearer’s curves. They’re usually seen as a bit more formal, or at the very least, it’s more commonly seen in high fashion settings. The designers featured on Lyst range from top names like Michael Kors, Armani, and Versace, proving that these dresses are more than a cosy coverup. Feel free to wear one of these to work, meetings, or out on the town for date night.

slip%20dress5The Slip Dress
These slinky dresses used to be meant for under your clothes, but they’re quickly becoming a staple for outerwear among the fashion elite. A trend alert from Platform recommends a few different styles with varying details, but it also sets decent guidelines by suggesting pairing them with boots if it’s chilly or sandals for a dainty, feminine summer look.

Granted, the slip dress can be pretty revealing on its own. So if it doesn’t leave enough to the imagination for your liking, it’s a great piece to play with in a layered outfit. You can try it out under jackets or cardigans, as well as over a pair of leggings. It’s doesn’t have to be your main focus, but it can certainly help you create a fashion-forward outfit that you can’t achieve otherwise.

These dresses are summer and mommy approved. Find yours before it’s too late!

to celebrate winter coming early (not really), we went to see a movie on the silver screen. the roxy theatre will always be one of my favourite theatres. you may be able to see why from these photographs. take me back to the prohibition era any day. that is, for the fashion and architecture, not the social conflicts. ;-)))

what i bought.

i have recently discovered my new favourite ebay store! tambukiki!!

my most common search terms in ebay include “bodysuit,” “ballet,” and “wildfox.” when i typed in “ballet” and limited to dresses in my size, i repeatedly saw results for one store in particular. being the curious cat that i am, i clicked on the link to take me to tambukiki. i was instantly taken aback by their beautiful garments, how they were unique without being too garish, and their reasonable prices. i felt as if i had discovered a gold mine! not only that, the sellers were quick to ship the items, and even quicker to leave wonderful feedback. i guarantee that i will be shopping from them again and again.
