Trendy Ways to Style Your Sundress for Summer

by Goddiva Account 10 Jul 2024

Summer 2024 is all about embracing vibrant colours, bold prints, and versatile styling options. One summer wardrobe staple that never goes out of fashion is the sundress. Whether you’re heading to a beach party, a casual brunch, or an evening stroll, a sundress can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. Here are some trendy ways to style your sundress for Summer 2024, ensuring you stay stylish and comfortable all season long.

With a Belt

One of the simplest yet most effective ways to elevate your sundress is by adding a belt. Cinching your waist with a stylish belt not only accentuates your figure but also adds a touch of sophistication to your outfit. Opt for a wide belt in a contrasting colour to make a bold statement, or choose a slim, delicate belt for a more understated look. This styling tip works particularly well with flowy, loose-fitting sundresses, as it helps define your silhouette and adds structure to your ensemble. For instance, the Liquorish Leopard Midi Dress with Short Sleeves is a perfect candidate for this styling technique. Its playful and bold leopard print combined with a wide belt creates a striking, fashion-forward look that’s perfect for any summer outing.

Under a Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is a timeless piece that pairs perfectly with a sundress, making it a must-have for Summer 2024. Whether you prefer a classic blue denim jacket or a trendy white one, layering it over your sundress creates a chic, laid-back look. This combination is perfect for cooler summer evenings or when transitioning from day to night. For an added touch of style, roll up the sleeves of the jacket and accessorize with some statement jewellery. The denim jacket not only adds a layer of warmth but also introduces a cool, casual vibe to your outfit. The FS Collection Floral Print Tie Halter Neck Back Detail Maxi Dress works exceptionally well with this style tip. Its bold floral print and elegant halter neck design are beautifully contrasted by the relaxed feel of a denim jacket, creating a balanced and fashionable ensemble.

Bold & Chic Prints

Summer 2024 is all about embracing bold and chic prints, and your sundress is the perfect canvas for this trend. Florals, polka dots, animal prints, and geometric patterns are all in vogue this season. Choose a sundress with a vibrant, eye-catching print to make a statement wherever you go. Pair it with neutral accessories to let the print shine, or mix and match with other patterns for a fun, eclectic look. Bold prints can instantly elevate your style and add a playful, trendy touch to your summer wardrobe. The Liquorish Printed Deep V Neck Maxi Dress works perfectly with this style tip. Its striking print and deep V-neck design capture the essence of bold summer fashion, making it an ideal choice for those looking to make a stylish statement.

Button Down Shirt

For a unique and fashionable twist, try layering a button-down shirt over your sundress. This styling tip is versatile and allows for creative expression. Tie the shirt at the waist for a relaxed, bohemian vibe, or leave it open for a more casual, breezy look. You can also button it up halfway and tuck one side in for an asymmetrical, edgy appearance. Choose a lightweight, breathable fabric for the shirt to keep cool during hot summer days. This combination adds depth and interest to your outfit, making it perfect for various summer occasions. The Goddiva Printed Shirred Back Maxi Dress works exceptionally well with this style tip. Its front split adds a touch of elegance and allows the layered shirt to showcase different lengths and layers, enhancing the overall look with a dynamic and stylish flair.

Side Satchel

When it comes to accessorizing your sundress, a side satchel is both practical and stylish. This type of bag is ideal for summer as it keeps your hands free and adds a trendy touch to your look. Opt for a side satchel in a fun colour or with unique detailing to complement your sundress. The compact size makes it perfect for carrying essentials without weighing you down. Whether you’re exploring a new city, attending a festival, or just running errands, a side satchel is a chic and convenient accessory to pair with your sundress. The Goddiva Puff Sleeve Shirred Back Midi Dress works wonderfully with this style tip. Its square neckline provides a sophisticated backdrop that highlights the side satchel, allowing the bag's colour and detailing to stand out while maintaining a balanced and elegant look.

Oversized Tote

For those days when you need to carry more than just the essentials, an oversized tote is the perfect companion to your sundress. This bag is not only functional but also adds a stylish element to your outfit. Choose a tote in a bright, summery colour or with an interesting texture to make a statement. The spacious design is ideal for beach trips, shopping sprees, or any day out when you need extra space. Pairing an oversized tote with your sundress creates a relaxed, effortless look that’s perfect for summer. The Goddiva Printed Soft Mesh A-line Maxi Dress aligns perfectly with this style tip. Its flowing A-line silhouette complements the casual elegance of an oversized tote, creating a balanced ensemble that exudes summer charm and practicality. The dress's soft mesh fabric adds a touch of texture and lightness, enhancing the overall relaxed vibe of the outfit while allowing the tote to stand out as a functional yet stylish accessory.

Styling your sundress for Summer 2024 is all about mixing and matching different elements to create a look that’s both fashionable and functional. Whether you’re adding a belt for a touch of elegance, layering under a denim jacket for a casual vibe, embracing bold prints, or accessorizing with the perfect bag, these tips will help you make the most of your sundress this season. Experiment with these trendy styling options to stay chic and comfortable all summer long, and enjoy the endless possibilities that come with this versatile wardrobe staple.
