Finally, we reached the summer months and our capsule wardrobes adjusting to the heat. For some of us, it can mean a few months of fashion outfits or for others, it can be a difficult time where we are stuck we the outfits possibilities. And I belong to the ‘ confused ‘ group. I like to feel good and comfortable but also need to look professional. That means tank tops and shorts are out of the game. Until last year when I fell in love with summer dresses, especially minimalist style summer dresses. Florals and frills are not for me. But cotton or linen in the simple design and neutral colour it is my go-to summer dress. If you think the minimalist summer dress is not for you, stay with me to show you that it also can be really feminine and easy to style.
Minimalist Summer Dresses
More and more brands coming with simple designs in neutral colours. The one of the first brands to lead this trend was COS store with their minimalist style. No surprise they become really popular as you can style minimalist simple looking dress with anything and you will always look and feel great. You can wear them with heels for professional office look but they also look great with a pair of trainers for a more casual weekend approach. Minimalist summer dresses will serve you well for a day in the office but you can easily take them to the beach. And that’s kind of dress what we like to add to our capsule wardrobe.
How To Style Minimalist Dress
I love to style my with slides for the hottest days. Or with the trainers when there is too much running around. If you like to change your look or you feel like your dress is ‘ boring ‘ you can play with accessories. Especially this year there is a big hair scarf trend. Or add your favourite summer hat, swap the bag and never forget a big sunnies for the effortless celebrity look.
It’s In the Details
When there is nothing really eye-catching you need to pay attention to details. I like that most of the minimalist dresses has pockets or the midi length. If they come with the belt, it is made of the same fabric and colour as the dress. The minimalist dress is mostly made of cotton, linen or silk in neutral colours for easy styling with the rest of your wardrobe.
The minimalist dress is the easiest way how to stay cool, comfortable and effortlessly chic during the summer heat. If you plan to stay at home, or you plan a little gateway don’t forget to add one of the minimalist dress to your capsule wardrobe.
