Yep, a sundress is a Summer style statement and super easy to wear.
You can dress it up with heels or play it casual with flats. You can pair a hat for an Audrey-esque touch or go with a head scarf for a Boho vibe.
See, a sundress is what every summer wardrobe needs at least one of, if not more. It’s a definite must have. (Psst…head here to know what the 3 other summer style must-haves I recommend are).
And if you’ve known me for a while, you know my fashion philosophy is quite simple: Your style is all about YOU and not about my current obsession with the sundress. 😉
So, in that spirit of styling with YOU being front & center, I want to share some style tips to keep in mind when choosing a sundress that will flatter your best features easily.
1. When to Choose the Wrap-Style Sundress
The wrap-style sundress is perfect for women who have an hourglass shape or if you have a narrow waist and want to show it off, because it nips in at the waist and falls fluidly around curves.
Oh, speaking of shape, here is my ONE tip to dress right for your body shape. 😉
2.Should You Opt for an A-Line Sundress?
An A-Line sundress is a classic and helps show off your shape but at the same time, slim it down too.
It’s a Win-Win!
That’s why it’s a fave among women with fuller hips and thighs (if you have a Triangle shaped body that is fuller on the bottom half).
Just make sure you don’t go for a style cut too wide or it will make you look bigger than you actually are. You want something that just skims over the hips.
3. Maxi or Mini Sundress for Simple Style
A maxi sundress is great if you want to add volume and curves to your lower half.
It’s also a great choice if you want to conceal heavier legs. Pair it with flat sandals and you have a super stylish and comfy summer outfit in a flash.
Minis are great if you’re petite, or you have stunning legs to show off (very common for the “Diamond” body shape).
4. Consider Collars, Necks and Waists
Finally, consider if you’d like to show off your totally toned arms with a sleeveless or strappy sundress. If your shoulders and back are your best features, highlight them with a halter sundress.
An open collar or V-neck sundress will be perfect for you if you have a smaller chest or bust.
Want to be a little sassy and show off some décolletage? Go for a sexy strappy style.
See?! The sundress is so versatile that you can easily choose a style that is so YOU!
