Now, let’s be honest. There’s rarely a summer that goes by without the white summer dress making its way from the catwalk and onto the high street in one guise or another. And 2012 is certainly no exception.
With a suntan or a milkier complexion, white dresses look simply stunning, and a slinky little white number is a hot favourite this season. Whether you’re on the beach, at a party, in the office or going for a walk in the park, no matter where you go, you’ll be sure to turn heads.
Yes Cinderella, you shall go to the ball this summer! Be prepared to sport a daring summer dress this season with a hem and neckline of pretty frills. Whether it involves pleats, frills, lace or ruffles, the princess look is definitely in this summer.
There’s nothing quite as summery as a colourful flowing dress emblazed with floral prints. These highly feminine dresses can be flattering for a whole range of shapes and sizes. Floral dresses not only look great when worn with sandals or flip-flops as casual daywear, but can make a stunning evening outfit when accompanied with a stylish pair of high heels.
Summer 2012 will see a huge choice of floral summer dresses available, ranging from delicate patterns to bolder prints. They’re the height of femininity and style during the warm summer months.
With Hollywood celebrities stepping onto the red carpet in eye-catching dresses with asymmetrical hemlines, this somewhat unique style has moved onto the high street. From diagonal cuts to handkerchief types, a long flowing dress with an asymmetrical hemline will radiate style, sophistication and charm this season.
Another perfect summer dress for 2012 is the traditional straight-cut, mid-length dress. Sitting comfortably just below the knee, mid-length dresses are the perfect solution for those who dislike long dresses but aren’t bold enough to go mini!
