Casual Summer Dresses | How to Style a Sundress


Sundresses come in all shapes and styles, from printed A-line silhouettes to solid maxi dresses. The airy, feminine cut of the sundress creates a prime style opportunity, even in the hottest summer weather. For printed looks, try adding subtle metallic details with jewelry and purses. For solid color dresses, introduce new textures with your choice of shoes and accessories. Statement necklaces or earrings help balance high rounded necklines, while bold earrings help highlight bare shoulders and thin straps. Here’s a look at some outfit ideas with casual summer dresses that are sure to turn heads.

Bright Floral Sundress: This vibrant look pairs a bright orange floral printed sleeveless sundress with subtle gold accents and bold footwear. The vintage-inspired color palette is reflected in the warm muted tones of the clutch, as well as the cat’s eye sunglasses. Adding a natural twist, the platform sandals keep this outfit dressy-casual, and therefore appropriate for a number of occasions.

The loose casual fit of the maxi dress and thin spaghetti strap neckline create an airy feel that is well-suited for a day in the sun. Dangling handmade earrings, metallic bangle, and woven pointy flats add coherence to the look. Similarly, a blush pink clutch picks up the natural luminescent tones in the beaded earrings, adding just the right amount of color to this angelic outfit.

A little more dressy than the previous outfit, this floral skirt has a busier and bolder pattern.

Accessorizing with Statement Jewelry


Here are a couple things to consider when wearing statement jewelry! Do you have any tips to share?

Keep the focus on either a statement necklace or earrings:

Whether it’s a swinging pair of chandelier earrings or a giant pendant, making a bold statement is a seriously on-trend way of offsetting your outfit either day or night. To strike the right balance, let one piece do the talking though by keeping everything else minimal.

Think: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s – her showstopping giant pearl choker was offset by dainty studs. Sarah Jessica Parker rocked a bib-like pearl choker perfectly with tiny drop earrings at the NYC Ballet Gala last week.


Statement Rings or Stacked Bangles:

Similarly, if you have a gobstopper of a cocktail ring then be sure to work with a discreet bangle and keep the rest of your hands clutter-free. Alternatively, stacked up cuffs and bracelets are big news for Fall but if you indulge in the trend don’t let them compete with fussy finger adornments.

Keep your outfit balanced:

The same rules apply to clothing and grooming as well, keep colors solid or neutral if wearing a statement necklace or pendant and hair up and away from the neck to let your earrings take all the glory. AnnaLynne McCord got it right at Lloyd Klein’s catwalk show with a pair of big dangling baubles and slicked a slicked back pony tail.

A gigantic brooch is a fantastic way to crown an outfit whether on a lapel or scarf but be sure other jewelry doesn’t steal its thunder. Above all, be bold, be brave and have fun!

A suggestion from our store: the hammered crystal bib ($34) would team up perfectly with our mini nugget drop earrings ($9). Check out the rest of our bib necklaces and chandelier earrings.

What are some of the no-no’s  in your book when wearing statement pieces?

Spree Vs Steal: Givenchy


We love this beautiful vintage Givenchy plaited choker, but at an eye watering $579 it’s a budget-busting piece.

You can get this showstopping look for less with our twisted gold snake necklace. At only $36 it’s a purse-friendly way to make a bold statement. Team with a LBD for some serious after-dark glamor or inject some urban luxe by wearing over a basic T shirt.
