Summer Dress Outfit Options

At the first hint of warmer weather, we’re gearing up for summer and everything it represents – long days soaking up the heat, sunset walks along a white sandy beach and of course, the endless dreamy new season styles to try and outfits to create.

Whether you’re channelling your inner boho charm, going for a classic feminine look or ready to experiment with bold colours, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe and start planning some summer fits. We’ve put together a few styling tips and curated three outfit options to inspire you, just in time for the change in season.

Boho Chic

Intricate lace fabrics, flowing silhouettes and layers of gold jewellery that make up the foundation of the bohemian style have found their way from the fields of Coachella and into our summer wardrobes – and we couldn’t be more pleased. The effortlessly feminine cuts and luxurious lace detailing bring a whole new style to the classic white dress that has formed the foundation of our summer look season after season.

Pair a detailed lace midi with statement gold earrings and layer intricate gold necklaces, finish with a pair of white wrap-around heels and a woven crochet cross-body bag for a gorgeous summer boho look. Beachy waves and warm, bronzed makeup are the ultimate finishing touches.

The off-the-shoulder neckline and luxe lace finish of the Violette Dress have us dreaming of warmer days. Finish with the Laila Heel and stunning gold Lolita butterfly earrings for an effortlessly chic look.


Summer Florals

An ode to our favourite spring trend, there’s always room in our summer wardrobe for a ditsy printed floral number. Freshen up this look for the change in season by opting for a delicate pattern in light, breezy shades of pink and white and look for silhouettes that show off a little more skin. A two-piece set featuring a cropped bodice and flowing A-line skirt gives a fun yet elegant look and breaks up more intense patterns whilst cinching your waist and flattering your figure. Style this stunning floral look with understated accessories – a pair of staple nude heels, gold drop earrings and a nude clutch.

The two-piece style of the Helene Set features a sweeping A-line skirt and bustier top that breaks up the all-over pattern. This versatile set can be paired together or worn separately.


Block Colours

Although we’re loyal to an all-white summer ensemble, we can’t see out the warmer weather without introducing a few bolder, brighter pieces into our wardrobe and embracing the ever-popular colour blocking trend is the opportunity to do just that. If you’re used to wearing a softer colour palette, delving into just one bold colour can seem intimidating – let alone multiple. Ease into this trend by pairing a bright dress (think flamingo pink, neon yellow or vibrant orange hues) with muted, pastel accessories in a complementary colour or make it monochromatic with accessories in a lighter shade. For a more statement look, pair high contrast colours, such as an orange two-piece set and blue heels or a pink midi and green clutch. Keep accessories at a minimum and let the colours shine.

For a subtle colour-blocking look, pair the hot pink Analu Dress with pastel pink heels and a clutch in the same shade. Delve into a new complementary colour palette and round off the Rochelle Dress with a textured orange bag.

From beautiful boho-chic to classic florals or bold colour blocking, whatever your personal style, there’s a stunning summer trend to make you feel incredible this season. If you’re feeling inspired to refresh your summer wardrobe, shop all the featured styles at Alamour The Label.
