Letter from a Reader: Summer Dress Dilemma…

Apr 11, 2010

Hi Mandy, I’ve been trying to find fabulous sun dresses for years! Can you recommend some figure-flattering, soft, flirty dresses for spring and summer? I just love your posts and think the items you pick are spot on. Would love to see what you come up with!
Best,
Molly
Thanks for writing in Molly, I had fun looking for dresses to post for you and I hope you like what you see.  This spring and summer is all about color, patterns, and short hem lines!  I think the options I picked are flattering, budget friendly, and versatile. Enjoy!
The color and details of the dress are wonderful.  You could easily wear it as a beach cover up and or go to lunch with friends in it.


Eliza J Embellished Linen Dress at Nordstrom
This dress is so friendly, just like my friend Eliza!  It is made by Eliza J and would be great to take on a vacation or wear to the office like the look below.

Eliza J Embellished Linen Blend Dress

Banana Republic Silk Tie Dress
This dress has so many possibilities.  I love the color and the neckline.  It is flattering and would show off your long legs.

Long Maxi dresses are still in for 2010.  This color is great, I love them in subtle tones, try to avoid them in loud colors or big patterns, they can completely take over your body.  Instead, add color with the accessories.

VaVaVoom!  This just reminds me of something for the 1980s but I still love it.  It reminds me of “Blair Waldorf” from Gossip Girl.
Tonal Gingham Dress from Anthropologie
Navy is the “It” color of the season.  This is a flattering cut and the fabric is amazing.
