Summer is definitely around the corner. Weddings, graduation parties, back yard barbecues, baby showers, birthdays and social gatherings are awaiting you. We will not stand in front of our closets pondering over that big question of what to wear! The solution is simple, pick from the five must have dresses that will be in your closets. We must never be caught off guard without having an outfit to wear. We want color and lots of color. Pick the colors red, canary yellow, lavender, a floral print and denim.
The styles are: a halter dress with a deep V-cut, a spaghetti strap dress with the criss cross action going on in the back of course, off the shoulder ruffle dress, a strapless dress a wide belt that can hang around the waist or even tie a colorful printed scarf to add pizzazz. Add a tailored a-line dress, any color, and you will be set .
Strapped sandals, thong sandals, wedged heeled sandals any style but they must have at least a 2 inch heel to bring the shape of your legs out. Designers to look for Rampage, Ann Klein and RALPH by Ralph Lauren and that's just a few but there are so many to choose from.
Your make-up should be light and for your hair you can never go astray with the classic chic ponytail combed back tightly, tie your favorite scarf around it. Accessorize lightly with a necklace, dainty earrings, thin bangles or fabric or leather cuff bracelets.
Don't forget a small Kelly bag enough to hold one credit card a compact mirror lip gloss and a makeup sponge. We need room to carry a gift if need be. Well last but not least, before the clothes go on we must dress our skin with lotions and a nice scented fragrance. Two words come to mind: Victoria’s Secret, go get the newest fragrance "BODY". Shoes and dress above available at Victoria’s Secret. Chow fashion bunnies.
