1)   WHITE HOT”

The model looks white hot in this crochet, white empire-waist dress by Laundry.  To give this sweet dress a bit more sophistication, I added edgy accessories and shoes.  White can be very unforgiving, this piece is great because it’s empire waist and the skirt isn’t fitted so it gives you a bit more breathing room.  The crochet is an overlay so you definitely won’t have issues with it being see-through either… a common problem when wearing white.

WHERE CAN I WEAR IT? – This dress is perfect for day or night. I think you can wear flat gold gladiators and sport it during the day running errands, or glam it up like I have with heels and wear it out to dinner at night. Throw a jacket over the dress to make it office appropriate.

2) “SHEER PERFECTION”

 Sheer panels are another big trend this season.  They are sexy without showing too much skin.  This dress is elegant and sophisticated, but again with the sheer top and sleeves, it has just the right amount of sexy.

WHERE CAN I WEAR IT? – This dress is perfect for a summer wedding, event or dinner date.

3) “MAXI MOMENT”

Maxi dresses are still having their moment. I am dying over this python print maxi dress by Chan Luu. I think it is super sexy, and elongating! Notice the way the python print traces two lines down the middle of her body… it creates a slimming effect. And, this is just a unique, fun piece!  If you are looking for a summer standout, this is it!

WHERE CAN I WEAR IT? – Well, if you wear it with flats, I think you can wear it during the day to a lunch with friends or on the weekend when you head to the beach. Wear wedges or heels and rock it in the evening to dinner or a party.

4) “HOT HUE”

One of the hottest colors of the season is coral! It’s such a pretty color and looks good on almost every skin tone.

WHERE CAN I WEAR IT? – The great thing about this coral dress by Sanctuary is its versatility. You can definitely throw a jacket over the dress like the one our model has on, and wear it to the office, OR lose the jacket and add chic accessories and sexy shoes for an evening out!

5) “COLOR-BLOCKED CURVES”

This is another Laundry dress with strategic color-blocking. Take advantage of this trend… whether you want to shave a few pounds from your mid-section or create more of an hourglass silhouette… there are tons of color-blocking options out there that will help you create your ideal body!! I’m a little straight up and down so this illusion dress gives me more of that coveted hourglass shape!

WHERE CAN I WEAR IT? – If you work in an office that isn’t conservative, I think it is work appropriate.  It would also be great for events, parties and dinners.
