Dresses For End-Of-The-Summer Gatherings
Now that summer is in full swing, we love spending our weekends with friends having fun outdoors and soaking up the warm weather. Be it at a rooftop bar, weekend BBQs, or pool parties, there are countless party atmospheres for us to relish in during our free time this summer. With such busy weekend plans, it gets difficult to decide what to wear to each party. Looking cute, stylish and sexy, while keeping cool isn’t always easy, and when we’re out every weekend, it’s virtually impossible to not repeat outfits. Thankfully, we have the perfect solution for anyone who is having trouble dressing for all the fun events that present themselves throughout summer. Read on to discover your newest closet staple: the perfect summer party dress. These dresses can take you from day to night, the city to the coast, or the BBQ to the bar, and help you feel and look your best all summer long!
For Chill Summer Vibes: Summer Vacation Dress
Whether you will actually be hitting up the beach on a tropical getaway this summer, spending some time on Canada’s stunning lakes, or just chilling on a staycation, it’s always fun to rock beach looks in the summer heat. A dress with bright colours and a tropical print is never a bad idea no matter where you find yourself this summer. Summertime is really the only opportunity you have to rock vacation style dresses and resort attire, so we really think you should take advantage. Keep cool in a strapless and flowy maxi dress, the ultimate beach staple.
Rock any of these maxi dresses with flip-flops, a floppy hat, big sunglasses, and some dangly earrings for a true beach getaway inspired look, which will make you look like you’re in Aruba, even if you’re just chilling at home.
For A Classy Party: Cocktail Dress
Fancy evenings out are one of our favourite things to dress up for. A classically elegant cocktail dress is a closet staple for women everywhere, but we love having a little bit of fun with this classic during the warmer weather. Trade in your little black dress for something a little more daring.
In the summertime, it’s a lot of fun to experiment with different prints and colours, so maybe try to add something a little extra to your classic cocktail dress. A hot pink dress or floral print is sure to spice up your wardrobe and add some fun to a sophisticated dress for your next evening out. Adding a brightly coloured clutch and pumps will make your look even more fun!
For A Fashionable Daytime Event: Bohemian Dress
This summer, bohemian styles have been all the rage. From floral prints to intricate patterns, we love the loose fitted and flowy style that bohemian vibes encompass. This style is especially appropriate for any daytime parties that you may find yourself at this summer.
Since bohemian style dresses air on the more loosely fitted side, they will keep you cool in the summer heat, and allow you to go for that second helping of BBQ without the fear of looking bloated in your dress. Look like a bohemian goddess and pair your dress with some big sunglasses, hoop earrings, and a matching headscarf.
For A Night Out At The Bar With Your Girls: Little Black Dress
Winter, spring, summer or fall, a little black dress needs to be in your closet. This dress can really be worn to any or every occasion, but it would be especially useful to add some elegance and class to a night out with your friends. It’s time to elevate the summer rooftop bar scene with a look that may be a little fancier than what your fellow bar-goers’ attire, but is still perfectly appropriate and chic.
Have fun and pair your little black dress with a bold red lip, some sparkly gold eyeliner, or a patterned pump to bring a touch of summertime fun into an otherwise classic look!
For Casual Nights Strolling Through Town: Shirt Dress
The women’s shirt dress is undoubtedly the most comfortable piece of clothing on our list. Its genius is in the fact that you are wearing what is essentially a giant t-shirt and still looking cute. This type of dress is perfect for really relaxed nights either strolling through town or chilling at your friend’s apartment and ordering in. Throwing on a denim jacket and sneakers is the perfect way to accessorize this comfy, casual, and cute look.
If you want to add a little bit of definition, you can even belt the waist with a statement or printed belt. Throwing your hair up in a messy bun will also add to the relaxed vibe that the t-shirt dress already gives off, and is also the best way to keep your hair out of your face in the summer heat.
