7 Ways to Wear Your Dresses this Summer
1. Bring out your high-tops.
Pairing your shorter dresses with cute high top sneakers gives a traditionally feminine piece a sporty vibe. We personally love how high-top white converse look with short swing dresses.
2. Belt it.

We love this style tip. Belts always add a flattering touch to any look, and dresses are no different. Cinch your waist and add a cute belt to your favorite dress this Summer."I find that even the simplest of dresses, if it has the correct seaming and the correct fabric, whatever shape or size you are, it can change the way you hold yourself." -Victoria Beckham
There is no better way to give any style of dress an immediate update than by accessorizing. Whether you choose a straw hat, statement bag or lace-up sandals, adding fun accessories will add a fresh take to your dresses for Summer.
4. Mix prints.
If there is ever a season to be bold with your style, it's Summer time. Mix your prints by pairing your pattern dresses with other bold accessories .
5. Layer it up.
Layers in Summer? You bet. Just opt for lighter weight outerwear pieces, like silk kimonos or a thin denim jacket. These type of layers give a dress a polished finish; a perfect way to give a dress a more professional look.
6. Tie a tee on top.

Looking to add some edge to your dresses? Tie a tee over it! This gives any dress some street style flare and add even more versatility to your frocks. Reach for graphic tees or simple striped tees for this look.
7. Keep it simple.
If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Some dresses are a statement all on their own. For those extra special dresses, keep your accessories simple and let the dress do all of the talking.
