Keep reading to browse our top picks for the styles that will get you through the short and sweet Summertime. 


Summer Blues

Make a splash!

Indra is wearing the Ramona cobalt sequin dress in a size 4.

Embrace the blues (the good kind!) this Summer. Dip your toe in the blue tonal trend and feel calm and serene. During the Summer we spend hours outside or by the water, so it is totally normal to gravitate toward the color blue. Whether it is a light shade of blue or a dark shade, wearing blue evokes a calm feeling that we can all use during the busy Summer months.


Orange & Tangerines

Brighten your day!

Indra is wearing the Lisa mandarin sleeveless dress in a size 4, Karla is wearing the Sunny mandarin floral dress in a size 6P, and Terri is wearing the Jo mandarin romper in a size 8 (Available May 11, 2022).

Vibrant shades are a great way to liven up your Summer outfit. Throw on an orange dress and immediately watch your mood change. Go all out in a monochrome look or use this bold color as a jumping off point to your Summer outfit. This bold hue is making its mark on Summer fashion and we are loving it!


Summer Prints

Go big or go small.

Terri is wearing the Stevie lapis floral dress in a size 8.

Wondering what's the 411 on Summer prints? Summer is the perfect time to incorporate prints into your wardrobe. From soft and subtle to vivacious, there are a wide variety of prints to choose from in our Summer 2022 collection. Prints may not be your go-to choice for an outfit, but perhaps something you want to try and embrace during the warmer months.


Figure Flattering Dresses

Feel comfortable and confident all Summer long!

Terri is wearing the Lisa mandarin sleeveless dress in a size 8.

With warmer weather usually comes more flowy and loose fitting dresses. However, not everyone feels flattered or comfortable when wearing a more boxy dress silhouette. If this is how you feel, try a figure flattering dress in a lightweight fabric that does not make you feel restricted on a hot summer day. Instead, look for figure flattering details that help promote the best parts of your body while also making you feel comfortable with the parts that you would prefer to hide. 


Chiffon Details

Lightweight and breezy.

Lene is wearing the Sunny mandarin floral dress in a size 18W.

Chiffon is a lightweight and simple fabric that seems to add an elegant and feminine touch to any outfit. Chiffon sleeves are a perfect choice for the Summer because it gives added coverage without being too hot or tight to the body. This way, you can still feel comfortable and confident while also looking chic and on trend for Summer 2022.


Summer Cocktail Attire

Is your Summer event calendar booking up fast?

Terri is wearing the Drew cobalt sequin dress in a size 8.

Help your closet keep up! Lean into the trends and just add on a sparkling touch! Sparkles and sequins are never NOT in style. A bold sequin dress on a Summer night out will have you feeling sexy and confident! Plus, try two trends at once and embrace the Summer blues! Cobalt AND sequins? I don’t think it gets any better than that!


Styles With Pockets

Yes, it has pockets!

Indra is wearing the Jori cobalt jumpsuit in a size 4 (Available May 11, 2022) and Terri is wearing the Jo mandarin romper in a size 8 (Available May 11, 2022).

We are always so pleasantly surprised when we can find a chic Summer dress with pockets! Pockets are seriously convenient and during the Summer they’re even better! When we don’t want to carry a purse while quickly running errands, a dress with pockets is the way to go. Instead of feeling pleasantly surprised, make pockets a priority by shopping our collection full of styles with pockets.


Maxi Dresses

Break out the Summertime maxi’s!

Indra is wearing the Kelly navy floral maxi dress in a size 4.

One of our favorite trends during the Summertime is breaking out all of the fun, floral maxi dresses. There is something about slipping on a maxi dress that immediately makes you feel like Summer has begun! The flowy and lightweight fabrics are perfect for the warmer weather while the floral prints and fun colors help you stand out!
