This frock is all scallop and show, with a row of flouncy ruffles descending from the left shoulder across the chest, flutter sleeves, and a cinched waist. Pair it with dark heels and an antique hat for the classic Lulu look, or sweet flats and a silk shawl for a sunny, relaxed look. The light and fabric is the perfect answer to getting dressed up in the summer’s heat, and the length keeps things ladylike when you take a seat on the grass to people watch.
Crisp and cool, classy and cultured, the shirt-dress is always a basic garment of the spring/summer season. Clean and classic lines lend sophistication to this effortless style staple, perfect for a working-girl look, a bike ride along the river or a summer picnic. Crisscross styling, open neck and pointed collar, pockets at the bust and a plentitude of pleats descending from the cinched waist make this a go-to favorite for style mavens everywhere.
Oh la la! Careful pintucks meet at the rolled neckline, where a soft blossom blooms for a girlie finish to this knee-length, empire waist dress. Sleek and fitting through the arms and bodice and generous in the skirt, perfect for a changing figure!
The dress has a slightly military-inspired (or conquistador-inspired) feel because of the cut and the gold metallic buttons. But with a cinching sash at the waist and its ravishing ruffles, this look maintains it’s attractive femininity incorporating at the same time one of this spring’s biggest trends..
Borrowed from the boys, navy blue sailor stripes are oh-so en vogue, and this dress is a prime specimen. A springy green, capped-sleeve top tucks into the wide-cinched waist, and a full circle skirt drops just below the knee. This fresh summery take on the perfect vintage silhouette pairs perfectly with espadrilles and a sun hat, or a scarf and Fellini-esque sunglasses. You can find this stunning dress at Shabby Apple
