To start things off, what is summer without a summer dress! This summer it’s all about having a patterned dress. The great thing is you can choose a dress with a silhouette that suits you, just get something fun and colorful.
For this post I chose to use this amazing floral dress by Zara. It’s a little bit more structured than the traditional summer dress but still has endless styling possibilities.
An instant way to dress a piece down is to add some denim to the mix and this jacket does just that. Roll up the sleeves to keep things cool along with a cap to keep the sun out of your eyes. For a little extra interest throw in a patterned tote. Cool, yet casual (and comfortable).
To give your dress the look of strolling through the markets of Paris add neutral accessories and a bright lipstick. A scarf would be adorable tied up in your hair. This look has a sweet feminine feel that I love.
To accentuate the structure in your dress I’d pair it with accessories that have straight lines and simple color schemes. I love the little punch that the clutch adds. You could wear this look to an outdoor wedding for the perfect modern moment.
