Emily Crew Printed Dress
An eye-catching bright pink flower pattern (called Hotty Pink Cherry Begonias, to make you fall even more in love with it) leaps out from this otherwise modest crew neck slubby cotton jersey. The sleeves are short and the hem is a few inches above the knee. Fun and flirty, this dress is a must-have for summer for its simplicity and bold pattern. For those who prefer a more subdued version, they have a Limeade Cherry Begonias color that has splashes of cool green to tone down the pink. And for those who want a more formal dress to wear to a special occasion, the same print can be found on the Bloom Dress that has a full A-line skirt beneath a strapless top.
A stunning, absolutely necessary dress for those that like large geometric prints and a bohemian vibe. The strapless dress falls to the knee in a rich navy color. The allure is the Honeycomb design embroidered on to a small section of the left side of the top and a large section on the right side of the bottom. The honeycombs are made of baby blue, white and bright yellow thread in concentric hexagons. Pair it with a scarf around the head and wedge sandals for a casual look or dress it up with strappy heels and layered bangles.
The Kelley Dress
The ultimate in go-to sundresses, this light, airy white dress has spaghetti straps and a ruched bodice. It falls above the knee and will be perfect for those days when you do not know what to wear and want something simple. Keep it minimal with a pair of sandals, or dress it up a bit with bright pops of color in the shoes and bangles. It is guaranteed to be in style for years to come.
Maxine Dress Printed
The boho-chic vibe is in full swing this summer with Maxi skirts and dresses on the forefront. The flattering halter-top and ruched waistband define the figure and the floor-length fabric is covered with a vertical pattern of large multicolor flowers in bright, saturated hues that look painted on to the white material. Keep the accessories to a minimum in neutral tones to let the dress shine.
This strapless number has ruffles in three small tiers on the bottom of its knee-length hem and comes in a gorgeous Ginger Orange Hot Fun color that is the ultimate in summer hues. Corals and oranges are on the forefront for summer and this dress plays right into that trend. The ruched bodice adds sweet femininity and the light fabric will keep you cool. Dress it up or wear it during the day with minimal accessories. Go for the Classic White Hot Fun color for a little white dress that will be stylish year after year.
The print is an absolute must-have for summer in a bright navy ribbit. It is a strapless mini-dress with loose, light fabric, ruffles on the top and an elasticized waist to give it shape. A super chic cover-up when thrown on over a bathing suit and paired with big sunglasses, or the perfect relaxed daytime dress paired with a big bag and stunning metallic heels. It also is available in a pattern of black and white diagonal stripes overlaid by bright pink and green flowering vines; go for this print for a more formal look or to make a statement.
Bowen Dress Colorblocked
Patterns and color blocking are a huge hit this summer; this strapless dress has both. White, yellow, orange and pink go from top to bottom in large stripes and each panel has delicate embroidered black designs with vines and leaves. The embroidery has straight lines and a geometrical feel to it. The hem comes to just above the knee. If you like chic, trendy clothing this is a must. Pair with neutral accessories to avoid overwhelming your audience.
Tiny, delicate flowers and eyelets decorate white fabric in a bright pink color on this charming strapless dress. The skirt is full and hits above the knee. It can be dressed up for a sophisticated event or worn during the day with sandals to the beach. Pockets in the front add chic style. For a more glamorous, classic style try the White Regatta Embroidery color with its delicate, tiny nautical themed details spread intermittently over white fabric.
