Casual Summer Fashion: Dresses

Get ready for this season’s summer sultry fashion!  The difficulty of sartorial choices rises with the temperature as we search our closet for items that are both chic and comfortable. Nothing beats the summer heat like a breezy, timeless sundress, and this season the choices are spectacular and diverse. From bold and bright colors that illuminate, to urban and contemporary graphic patterns. The focus is on dresses that are as easy to put on as they are to pull off. On trend: exotic, poetic, romantic and tribal. Whether you choose to show your primitive or sensual side…sundresses are definitely hot!

“Let’s go back to the mood of remote lands, and hot beaches skimmed by the Pacific Ocean. The wild and uncontaminated nature stands out boldly: hibiscus, tropical flowers and ferns adorn the clothes with their pure colors.” ~ Vogue
