Your favorite light and flirty dresses have been redefined. Designers added some spice to “everything nice” and blacked out voluminous dresses that are typically made in bright colors or floral prints. Some even took it a step further as to switch out the ideal soft lightweight cotton fabrication for latex and we are obsessed!

Less Is More

No literally, less. Sheer, barely-there dresses dominated the runway this season. From chiffon and nylon down to gauze fabrics, layer them with a simple two-piece underneath or go bold and bare. Leaving not so much for the imagination but just enough of inspiration!

Glittering sequins, satins, and wet-metallics are a sure way to add that extra flare to your wardrobe. Depending on your styling, it could give rock ‘n’ roll, disco princess, or glamorous beauty queen. Possibilities are endless. Shine bright, shine far, don’t be shy (be a star)!

It’s no secret that when fringe enters the chat, suddenly everyone’s thinking western vibes. But, baby, that’s old news! Fringe is back and she’s better than ever — this time around, the tassel detailing is heavier, more full, and not so casual. Fringe is having a major main character moment this season.
