A sundress is a summer staple, and there’s a variety for everyone. When the temperature is 96 degrees and the humidity 200% we’re not going to pull on jeans and a cardigan, are we? And the word “sundress” is so cheery and inviting, gotta have one. The gorgeous women of Visible Monday demonstrate how easy and relaxed a sundress is to wear.
As always, the first tip is: wear a sundress if you want to, and own it. Then choose how much coverage you’re comfortable with – at shoulders, chest, back and legs. There truly is something for everyone.
Always room in my closet a light-hearted sundress:
Andrea of Living On Cloud Nine is summer-perfect in a bright coral tie-shoulder sundress. Add a tan, sunny blond hair and a few gold pieces, and she is summer incarnate. Love that tapestry bag too. And dressy enough to go to any restaurant:
Suzanne of Ask Suzanne Bell actually “stalked” this fabulous print sundress until she could wait no more. It’s so charming, and can go to the office with a cardigan or light linen jacket. Awesome tie-up heeled sandals too:
Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style rocks this tie-dye knit sundress, but says she doesn’t love the look. I must respectfully disagree – I think she looks terrific in this casual style with flat sandals and a big sunhat. Nancy, please reconsider : >
Olga of Local Fashion does a full-coverage, feminine dress that may not technically qualify as a sundress, but is so charming. Love the retro floral print, over-the-knee length, and platform sandals. If you like full coverage, along with coolness, this kind of sundress is perfect.
Vix of Vintage Vixen may have invented these dresses: she can sew one up in ten minutes and finds the most funky, fantastic vintage fabrics. Add a mass of bangles, a fab manicure and you’ve got the quintessential retro sundress look.
Sabina of Oceanblue Style at Manderly shows off a slightly different version, with bare shoulders and longer sleeves. And with the beautiful beach behind her, a dreamy summer look.
