Summer Party Dress Code: What is a Summer Party Dress?
What is a Summer party dress you ask? Think a versatile outfit that can be worn day to night because, if there's something about Summertime, it is easy for a lunch date to turn into an all-nighter. Your dress needs to be fun and flirty, comfortable, classy - a well-rounded dress, something you can slip into and forget about. A dress that can be worn effortlessly.
Ice cold beverages, tasty food, great music, even better company, and classic summer outfits - the perfect Summer. Long days and longer nights, watching the sun come up while losing track of time in a Sundress to die for.
Although Goddiva is well known for their fabulous sequin evening gowns and their outstanding bridesmaids’ dresses, they are also known for their fabulous day-to-night fashion. From casual maxi dresses to sassy midi dresses, scuba crepe to chiffon, plain designs to floral prints, bodycon to skater styles, the possibilities are endless.
To me, the perfect summer party dress is one that can keep me cool, calm, and collected, something I can team with wedges, pumps or flats. A dress that can be teamed with a denim jacket for a picnic in the park or jazzed up for a spontaneous night out! Bright and bold colours are always a must for summer attire, although lighter pastel colours are a major trend this year. Whatever you prefer, your dress should be light and have you making a fashion statement wherever the day will take you. I've put together a few of my go-to styles for Summer parties, whether it is a garden party, birthday, drinks at the pub or a picnic in the park, these are my top picks for 2021.
This stunning white broderie anglaise sundress is the perfect option for upcoming Summer holidays! Wear it with a broad brimmed hat while you're out shopping or visiting the famous sights, or throw on over a swimsuit for an elevated cover-up that will look just as fabulous on the beach as at the bar.
This luscious V-neck shirred waist tea dress is a great choice for drinks with friends or a summer BBQ. The simple bohemian skater styling is fun and flirty, and accessorising this look is easy - team with a long necklace, block heels, denim jacket and an oversized bag for the ultimate Summer night look. For a daytime vibe, all you have to do is swap the heels for trainers. Available in Navy Blue and Blush Pink, this dress is suitable for all your summer needs.
Another top pick for me is this long sleeve floral print maxi with a shirred waistband. Teamed with the right accessories, it'll give you a bohemian look, especially when accompanied by ankle boots, satchel bag, a collection of necklaces, a fedora hat & oversized sunglassegels. When looking at this style I see elegant garden parties, Pimms & lemonade and laughs with friends. Available in Blush Pink and Navy Blue, and at an affordable price, this maxi dress is screaming buy me!!
Summer parties are about being bright and bold, so stand out from the crowd with this sleeveless floral mini. This ravishing red-hot number will be your go-to party dress for the Summer! With its wrap style bodice and floaty skater style skirt, it's is a great choice for events in the warmer months. Team it with a denim jacket and trainers or sandals for a daytime gathering or a biker jacket and heels for an evening event, this dress is fool proof to say the least.
