Firstly, consider the occasion, and the feelings of your daughter. Of course, none of us want to see her grow up, but its going to happen at some point, so prepare to make choices on clothes together and be ready to compromise a bit when appropriate.
Whatever her age, summer is time for lightweight and comfortable feels and fabrics. Make sure clothing is breathable and easy to maintain. Choosing summer dresses that are versatile and can be worn for both daytime and evening will stretch out your budget during the credit crunch. A light cardigan sweater or jacket will take any dress from day to night without spending extra cash on a new outfit.
Keep daytime and beachwear age appropriate, and make sure to keep protected from the sun’s rays if planning a backyard barbeque or a day outdoors in the hot sun. For formal occasions, a more dressed up look is suitable, especially for teens and juniors, who will likely want, and can get away with, a more mature and sophisticated dress for this type of occasion.
Sandals will compliment any summer dress, and heels will add a nice touch of maturity and style for a growing teen. Girls of the same age can and will differ greatly as far as body shape, development and taste. Knowing her preferences and feelings about these subjects beforehand will lend a large helping hand and avoid many a frustrating arguments while shopping.
If your little girl is under 12, she’ll probably be happy just getting a new piece of clothing to wear! But tweens and teens will have definitely already started to develop their own style and preferences, especially when it comes to dressing up.

Summer 2012 is fast approaching and its time to be done with the winter blues and that frumpy winter wardrobe! While summertime is certainly the season for bright colours and bold prints, we still feel nothing says summer more than the classic white summer dress.
There seem so few opportunities to enjoy wearing this light natured colour so don’t let the easy breezy days of glorious summer be wasted away in a drab and dark wardrobe.
White dresses can be just as versatile as the LBD (little black dress) so at least one white dress in your closet will serve you well this sunny season. This colour also absorbs less heat than darker colours so keeping it white and light will keep you cool under those mid afternoon rays.
Many women fear wearing white for several reasons, most commonly the dread of getting caught showing unflattering bumps and bulges, especially if you haven’t yet had time to hit the gym and work off those extra winter pounds. You need not feel vulnerable ditching the dark coloured coverups, however, as a white dress can be most flattering on any shape or size. But how can you make the right choice and keep it cool and confident in white this summer?
Basically, just stick to the fashion rules you already know. Empire waist to add some curves, halter or spaghetti straps to draw eyes up and away from problem thighs and midsection, and a tea length dress for petite frames. Dressing appropriately for the occasion is also of fundamental importance. Generally speaking, bare and exposed shoulders in a halter,sleeveless or spaghetti strap style dress are not considered suitable for the workplace. Shoulders should be covered to keep it professional. A cute jacket or light sweater over your office dress can easily solve this problem while also preventing chills from spending the day in a cooler indoor environment.
Summer dresses are naturally figure flattering, as they tend to be form fitted on the upper half of the body while flowing free and loose over the lower body. Eyes are naturally drawn upward to your face and away from those winter pounds that have yet to be dropped at the gym. Hence, even a white dress when well chosen and well fitted in the right areas can look great on anyone this summer.
Evenings in summertime or a sudden temperature drop in an air-conditioned building can leave you chilled, so make sure to bring along a light jacket or cover up for your dinner out with friends or a romantic evening stroll. A white summer dress will also help you keep things fuss free from daywear to a night out. A few simple accessory changes can transform your outfit without breaking the bank. Try complimenting your look with bold coloured jewelry or a wrap. Switch sandals to heels for instant night time sophistication.
Whether you’re off to a garden party, a backyard barbeque, afternoon tea and shopping with friends or a night out with that special someone, a white dress is a must have staple to add to your closet, and a versatile friend for summer 2012!
Summer is just around the corner so get ready to shove your bulky winter duds to the back of your closet and make way for this summer’s hottest trends. We love the warm weather for so many reasons, but especially the opportunity to wear dresses! Yes, all day every day whether at the office or strolling the streets in the warm afternoon breeze, a stylish summer dress is finally the chance to feel and look feminine and be super comfortable at the same time!
So how can you get this season’s must have summer pieces into your closet without breaking your bank account? Let’s face it, we’ve all been hit by the credit crunch, but don’t want to look it! All you need are a few key pieces that are versatile and will take you right through the summer in style within a limited budget.
A staple you can’t do without this sunny season is definitely a long summer dress. Of course we all love the cuteness and fun factor of a short sundress or beachwear, but a well chosen maxi dress will take you from daytime comfort to nighttime sophistication with ease and great style. Happily the long summer dress is still going strong this year and is a wonderful fuss free item that you can adapt to fit any occasion.
Last summer was definitely the ‘season of the dress’ and happily this trend is sticking around for this summer season as well. Although the maxi dresses’ equally hot rival the mini dress is still going strong as a popular favorite for many, the long summer dress is equally hot for looking great and showing off that sometimes ‘more is more’!
Its pretty easy to wear a long summer dress as they require low maintenance both in wearing and in body preparation. If you haven’t had time to hit the gym to shed that extra winter bulk, this dress is a perfect option with no worries attached!
The best thing about a long summer dress is that its so fuss free. The dress itself will be the main focal point of your outfit, so there’s no need to stress to much over accessories or other add ons. A couple simple accessory pieces will do well enough to keep all eyes on the dress and maintain an uncluttered look.
A long dress looks incredible on tall women, but can also flatter a petite frame if its well chosen and hemmed to the proper length. Don’t allow an oversize, bulky maxi dress to swallow you up underneath! If you’re concerned about height, heels can be added no problem under a long dress and still be casual enough for daytime summer wear. If you’re still a petite framed non believer in the long dress, just check out how much Eva Longoria Parker rocks this style over and over and looks fabulous doing so!
Long dresses can also flatter a plus size figure. To pull this off in the best way possible, keep the dress nicely fitted and detailed at the top. Eyes ill naturally be drawn upward to your upper half, the more flattering half of most women’s bodies. If the dress is poorly fitted and bulky on top, it will definitely not sit well as a whole. Juniors can sport the long dress as well this summer as its still youthful and fresh while keeping a more modest look.
Wherever this summer season takes you this year, a trendy long dress will ensure you’re styled right for the occasion. Shed the blahs of winter now and get ready for the easy breezy glorious and feminine days of summertime!
Summer is after all the wedding season and an almost endless sea of summer wedding dresses are available for you to choose from for your special day. Choosing the right wedding dress is no small task for any bride-to-be so be sure to follow a few simple tips to feeling cool and confident for your sunny season nuptials.
Firstly, you need to consider where your big moment is going to take place. If you plan a largely indoor ‘do, then traditional silk and styles can be enjoyed even in the warm season. If you’re planning a backyard or beach wedding then you definitely will want to avoid going the silk and satin route as these fabrics act trap in heat and will leave you feeling trapped underneath all that outdoor humidity and miserable. If a beach or destination wedding is in the planning, be sure to choose a lightweight, breathable fabric, such as cotton, to keep you cool, comfortable and fuss free under the tropical sun. An outdoor wedding is also subject to the weather, with the beach almost certainly being breezy and leaving a long dress subject to the sand. If you want to keep your hemline clean, a tea length dress is the perfect choice. You should also plan ahead for chillier evening temperatures with a shawl or wrap if planning to be outdoors at nighttime.
If your summer wedding will mostly be indoors, then you are free to choose from an endless array of styles and fabrics. Bear in mind though that most wedding photos will take place out of doors, so if you opt for a full out cinderella wedding gown with all the layers and trimmings, be sure to have an umbrella on hand to shade you from the hot sun, and a touch up kit readily available to deal with persperation or running makeup.
Now that you know where you’ll be exchanging your vows, you need to consider your body type. Of course, every bride radiates on her big day, but how can you choose a shape and style that will take his breath away? To begin with, any dress that it fitted on top and free flows on the bottom will naturally flatter any body shape. A fitted bodice or detailed bustline will draw all eyes up to your face and upper body, which for most of us, is generally more flattering than our lower half. A halter neck wedding dress is very trendy and youthful, and will slim you down with out having to hit the gym. Strapless is the popular choice for brides, especially for summer weddings. This look can flatter as well, if tailored perfectly and coupled with the right undergarments for support.
Shopping for the perfect summer wedding dress need not be stressful nor bring any unexpected surprises on the big day if you keep these simple tips in mind . Your wedding dress will be remembered for years to come, and will definitely be the most fun and beautiful dress you have the pleasure of wearing! So regardless of where you will hold this momentous event, take the time to enjoy being the bride and have the perfect summer wedding in a gorgeous summer wedding dress!

If you’re planning a day out under the hot sun, make sure to stick to comfortable, fuss free fabrics like cotton or linen, natures coolest fibers, which will allow your skin to breathe. Stuffy synthetics will leave you feeling itchy and uncomfortable, and possibly lead to a skin rash.

Summertime also means its time to prepare for sudden temperature changes such as heading into a cool air conditioned restaurant or shopping mall, or taking an evening stroll along the water. Remember to bring along a light jacket to keep comfortable on such occasions.
We love the casual feel that summer brings, hence you can dress up or dress down any summer dress with relative ease.

Change up fuss free sandals and a beach bag to a pair of heels and a clutch for an instant evening look without spending extra cash on an outfit change.
