Well, when it comes down to it Fashionista/os, the summertime seems to bring out the laziness in me. I know why they call it the lazy days of summer; there's just something about the attitude and atmosphere that makes me want to kick up my feet, relax and bask in the sun's rays. The key in the summertime is not to overcomplicate things, especially with your wardrobe. Making things easy and simple is a must this time of year, which brings me to the focal point of this post, the sundress. It's the perfect outfit for a perfect lazy summer day, and I think every Fashionista must have one. Whether you choose cotton, jersey, linen or anything in between, a sundress is an easy piece to relax in and make you feel comfortable wherever you go.
I spotted this Fashionista walking around the Chelsea neighborhood looked laidback but super chic in her jersey floral frock. This Fashionista's dress is especially suited for summertime with its flounce and floral print. There really are no boundaries when it comes to a sundress as long as it flatters your figure and is well, fun! It's summer, so don't shy away from bright colors or bold prints when picking out a dress. You want to be sure that the color and detail will add to the simple shape of the dress. As you can see by this Fashionista's ensemble, very little needs to be done with a sundress. Once you have the base of the outfit, keep your accessories simple and don't fuss with chunky chains, links and beads. All you need is a great shoe and you're on your way to the perfect outfit. This Fashionista is wearing unique ankle booties with strappy details. Whether you chose ankle boots like these from ASOS or gladiator sandals like these from Zara, be sure to go for a dress with a shorter hemline so you can show off what's on your feet!
Hint: Another cool feature to this Fashionista's look is her side braid. Playing with new hairdos is always fun in the summer; I am always looking for an alternative to your basic ponytail. Side braids are a cinch and are great for the beach or in the office. If you want to spice up your side braid and make it extra trendy, try a fishtail braid. It's just a tad more complicated than a regular braid, but with this step by step tutorial on Seventeen.com, I say give it a try!
