The Don’ts

  • Too many prints are a disaster: We love floral animal prints, but SEPARATELY! Both prints in the same sundress are eyesores.
  • Too big wouldn’t do: wearing an oversized sun dress may look more like a night gown or tent. It is unflattering, and definitely a fashion “don’t”.
  • One style too many: A sun dress with extreme color choices, ruffles, ruches, and prints is a complete fashion disaster, stay away from these things.
  • Pretty in Pink: never dress in pink from head to toe. It may sound tempting but this ‘too girly’ look isn’t winning you any score on the fashion scale.

The Dos

You know what not to do with your sun dresses, here’s what you should do to make a simple sun dress a fantastic style statement:

  • Look for details: A mini sun dress would look cute, but not as appealing as one with a dropped-waist cut and an off-the-shoulder These details may seem minute, but they contribute to the overall look. Keep a look out for them.
  • A sexy halter is a must-have: Since we’re talking about baring the skin, a halter sun dress does deserve a spot in your summer closet. This style accentuates your waist and shoulders, and draws attention to your lovely face. It’s definitely a winner.
  • A jacket will add finesse: what do you need a jacket for in summers? To survive the air conditioning. So, might as well do that in style. Think of tailored blazers or a cropped jacket to compliment you summer dresses.
  • Patterns and Prints are a definite YES! experiment with prints. Whether you pick bright tropical prints or solid geometrical prints for your sun dresses, have fun with your wardrobe.
  • Wear it out at night: Who says you can wear sun dresses only when the sun is out? Enjoy a breezy night out in one of your pretty sun dresses and don’t forget to put on a pair of strappy heels—you’ll be set for the night!
