Aside from annoying tan lines – please excuse my bikini-bronzed cleavage – I love everything about summer! With the sun shining, not a cloud in the sky, everything smelling like coconut suncream and music filling the warm breeze, everyone is just so much happier and uplifted; something I believe our fashion should positively reflect in order to echo and enhance our upbeat mood.
Perhaps a little premature to think about summer in mid-April, but after a gloriously long and hot bank holiday weekend I couldn’t resist filling my wardrobe with sunshine from my favourite FemmeLuxe Finery!
I think my love for bodycon dresses will forever remain strong because a tight fitting dress creates such a shapely silhouette on a girl. When I spotted this gorgeous snake print bandeau it really stood out against all of the others and I just knew that I had to have it – it’s exciting to try something a little different.
With a bandeau top I needn’t worry about anymore annoying tanlines, and the sexy side split is the perfect height for concealing high-waisted lingerie or rocking with a pair of short shorts if you’re not feeling as brave as I am! Either way I love how bold and daring this beautiful dress is and I’m so pleased that I found it.
Up next is this cute little brown one shoulder bodycon which I found whilst hunting for day dresses – you know when you want a transitional piece that can look fab at lunch but also take you into the evening? After all, the longer and brighter the evenings become the easier it is to go out and then end up out-out all night.
The soft stretchy material of this dress is so comfortable to wear and looks super cute whether you rock it with Converse and a cap during the day or strappy heels and a metallic clutch for the evening. Every wardrobe can benefit from several key staples which can be worn in rotation throughout the year.
What’s hotter than the thought of summer approaching? Erm… Jumpsuits! Nude is a colour that’s literally taking the fashion industry by storm right now as it works with every shape and style. I love how classical and classy this slinky off the shoulder wrap jumpsuit is and the colour makes is so on trend!
From office to dinner, this little number is perfect for every special occasion and is sure to turn heads for all of the right reasons. I’ve chosen to wear it without underwear here as my dark or coloured lace would have shown through under such a light colour – so if you’re looking for some extra support then you’ll need some nude underwear to match!
Finally, maxi dresses are a summer must-have and I couldn’t help but smile when I spotted this stunning lime ruched number. Sticking with the tan-friendly bandeau top theme, I love how this dress exposes the neck, shoulders and back whilst nipping in at the waist and flowing softly down to the ankle to elongate the leg.
I feel so much like a princess when I wear this dress and can’t help but stand a little taller and walk a little prouder for how pretty it is. The ruching gathers at the side of the dress and finishes up at the back, glamorously exposing the thigh amongst it’s dramatic draping. Hollywood eat your heart out!
I’m absolutely thrilled with my latest fashion haul and hope that you find this little selection of bodycons, a jumpsuit and maxi dress inspiring enough to break out bold colours and prints yourself this season.
Whilst every wardrobe can benefit from staple classics, it’s also important to experiment with latest trends and styles and find a way to make them your own. You never know, this season could be the beginning of a more confident, sassy and sexy you!
