3 summer dresses you need now

October 31, 2017

One of the best things about summer is being able to wear dresses. As a tomboy, I missed out on the joys of frocks as a kid, so doggedly determined was I that they were the foul epitome of ponce and oppression.  Yet once I found myself in the late 20s all I wanted was to feel feminine and pretty. So now, my first port when choosing a summer outfit is a beautiful dress.

For the second installment of my collaboration with Havaianas,here are some summer dresses I'm loving now ..
70s redux is always in fashion during summer and maxi dresses are my favourite. I love this airy, knitted number as much for it's daytime, beach appeal as for it's nighttime backless allure.

Pair it with matching leather accessories ( Havaianas You Riviera thongs in Sand Grey , Hansel and Gretel dress, Mon Purse bag, Holly Ryan earrings worn throughout )

A burst of bright lime colour plus pretty shoulder detailing makes this dress a summer favourite, while white accessories provide suitable pop


( Havaianas Freedom Cream Thongs, Ginger and Smart dress, Versace bag, Le Specs sunglasses )


Choose cinched up ruffles in feather light silk paired with toughed up thongs and tassels for a look that is a blend of boho and rock chick

( SL Crystal SW Black Thongs, Zimmermann dress, Jerome Dreyfuss bag )
