Looking to dress to impress this summer? After an age stuck indoors, that doesn’t surprise us at all – we’re desperate to cut some shapes with our mates too! However, if you want to make a good impression as summer kicks off, dressing fashionable should be at the top of your list. With tons and tons of parties coming up, we reckon it’s about time you gave your wardrobe a spring clean. Whether those are new dresses or old outfits, having a big variety in your wardrobe is always useful. To give you a helping hand, here are some of the best party dresses out there when you want to hit the dancefloor.
What could be better than bright colours for when you’re starting to go to parties again? From gorgeous dark yellows to bold light yellows, party dresses come in an endless supply of wonderfully bright colours. Ideal for those wonderfully sunny summer parties by the beach or the river, yellow is a perfect colour for the season and will give you a special aura that is difficult to replicate anywhere else. Furthermore, yellow is also great for mixing and matching and goes great with a wide range of looks and outfits. Our top tip is to mix yellow with a gorgeous black leather jacket, giving yourself the perfect smart/casual look that fits all sorts of parties. By pairing up your yellow dress with some gorgeous white heels, you’ve got an outfit to die for.
Lilac might seem like a subtle choice, but purple is one of the tougher nuts to crack when you’re trying to form a cute party outfit. Again, black jackets are an ideal choice, as well as accessorising your look with some gorgeous accessories. The result will be a look that gives off a genuinely eye-popping impression, allowing you to channel both those contemporary and retro vibes. Want to make things extra smart? A one-shoulder lilac dress looks super cute when mixed up with some chic heels, perfect for those party dresses that require a little extra effort.
What’s more summery than flower-patterned dresses? Not much – it turns out. Those blooming botanical designs are perfect for parties in gardens or even those small get-togethers down the park. Thankfully there’s a huge variety of designs on offer too – from abstract, arty patterns to the more traditional, delicate designs, there’ll be no shortage of choice when you start looking for a floral dress. Not only are you bringing a ray of sunshine to the party when you wear a floral dress, but you’re also complementing the season perfectly. After all, when we’ve been stuck in lockdown for months on end, we all need a bit of that sunshine.
Really struggling to find a colour that suits you for that party on the horizon? Don’t fret, blue is a true wardrobe-winner, capable of pulling you out of those outfit pickles. Clearly, there are a lot of shades of blue on the spectrum, with a gorgeous light blue the perfect party look for a summer wedding inside or outside. Dark blues also offer something a bit different, helping you build up a look that’s a little more sophisticated, especially when combined with other accessories.
