Styling Tips and Tricks With Summer Dresses

Last week I met with two lovely new clients who both have really cute spring and summer dresses that are hanging in their closet but they don't wear them regularly. Dresses really are the perfect outfit choice in the summer because they require no outfit coordination, they are flattering on all women, and they can be easily dressed up and down.  If you're looking to get more use out of your spring and summer dresses these style tips and tricks are for you! 

1At the office.  Shift dresses and casual summer dresses are perfect for the office because they require little outfit coordination. Add cute pair of heels or flats and you are office ready in minutes.  Just be sure to stay away from anything too short, too sheer, or too revealing. And if your office environment is typically cold remember to layer the dress with a white blazer or colorful cardigan. 

2. Weekday chic. Many of my clients save their dresses for events and special occasions but why not wear them during the weekdays? You can dress down a dress with a jean jacket, lightweight scarf, or a cute pair of sandals. Go easy on the jewelry and keep the rest of the look simple, minimal, and casual.  

3. Out on the town. Simple cocktail dresses, little black dresses, and other more "dressy" dresses in your wardrobe can be transformed to a more chic evening look. Just add trendy and fun jewelry, a cute leather moto, and a pair of sexy strappy sandals.
