Memorial Day weekend means tons of sales! I shopped a few for some great summer dresses that we all need (read want). I specifically shopped for off the shoulder dresses with ruffle details as those are heavily sought after items this spring/summer.
These first three dresses are all on sale for a great price. Number one is an off the should dress with a small cut out in the middle. The vertical lines on the skirt are flattering and contrast nicely with the horizontal stripes on the bodice. These design details give it a uniquely fun look. Number two is by one of my favorite brands C/MEO. I have a leopard print dress by them that I’ve worn every year for the past four years (see my staple dresses post). The quality of their clothing is excellent. The ruffle detailing down the front along with the heart-shaped bodice make this dress a feminine and flattering choice. Number three I find to be adorable. The ruffles along the top are less dramatic and the fitted waist and straight skirt make this a great staple dress for the summer.
I call these three “flirty casual” as they are all simple dresses with details that make you give them a second look. Number one is an off the shoulder dress with a ruffled front tie bodice. The emphasized waist is a great detail that ensures your shape isn’t lost due to the volume of the top. Number two is a favorite of the dresses on sale. It’s an open shoulder ruffled maxi dress with sheer lace details. This dress can be dressed up or down and be worn with some beautiful bright statement earrings. Number three I just love because it’s polka dot, lightweight, and has interesting yet subtle details with the shoulder ties. This dress would be perfect for summer and can be styled in multiple ways with a variety of colorful accessories.
These three dresses all feature pretty floral patterns. Number one has buttons down the front (buttons are a big trend this spring/summer) and gathering at the bottom before opening up into a flowy almost mermaid shape. Number two is another off the shoulder look with ruffles (of course) along the bodice and at the bottom of the skirt. The white flowers contrast beautifully with the black background of the dress. Number three I love because it mixes together two great prints: polka dots, and florals. Like two, it falls off the shoulder and has a side front slit.
The last three dress I shopped were all dresses that can be worn to occasions which call for dressy attire. Number one is a great closet staple. I really like the dusty rose color of the dress as well as the simple skirt and one shoulder ruffle. It’s a classic piece that would look stunning at a wedding. Number two is another one-shoulder dress with ruffles across the top and on the sleeve. The floral print pattern is unique and bold and would be a great statement dress for numerous occasions. Three is a bright yellow dress with ruffled Sleeves that give the sleeves of the dress great volume, another big summer trend. The front waist tie emphasizes the waist making this dress a flattering choice.
