The Season of the Frock by Fashion Stylist Esma Versace

 

One thing is style-clear – when it comes to Spring Summer 2014/2015, it is the season of the dress.  Mini, midi or maxi, a gorgeous frock is style du jour this summer.

How wonderful then that the impending season of the dress is coming just in time for the many upcoming spring/summer charity soirees featured on CharityDos.

To make it easy, here are some of my favourite looks for Spring/Summer 2014/15 from Australian designers that translate into the ‘the perfect frock’ for your next charity luncheon, high-tea or evening event.

A Slim Silhouette

One of the most wearable trends for spring/summer is a slim-fitting mid-calf dress that gives the illusion of a leaner, taller shape.  Choose a style with a sculptural fold or frill at waist-level to conceal tummy issues.  Pair with the highest heel.

Hemlines

Mini, midi or maxi; asymmetrical or straight, hemlines run the gamut of style for summer.

2f

The LLD

Dubbed the “LLD”, the little lace dress is the perfect accoutrement to a smart charity soiree.  Brighter colours of pink, red and lime is the new way to wear lace.

3f

Frills and Folds

Ruffles, folds and frills are all the rage this summer.

4f

Floating

Floaty, feminine dresses in the softest georgette and chiffon are just the thing for summer soirees.  Opt for lady-like or boho-chic.

5f

Monochrome

This powerful colour duo suits all ages, shapes and sizes.  This year’s monochrome reptile print is a favourite.

6f

White is Right

White-on-white is a strong statement for summer.  The perfect accessory?  A golden glow.

7f

Pretty Sorbets

Sweet sorbet colours of lavender, palest pink, soft dove grey and powder blue are a pretty change for summer.

8f

Brights

On the other side of the colour spectrum, bright colours of tangerine, lime, red and cobalt blue make a vibrant statement this summer.

9f

Prints

Prints that tell a story, prints that clash, prints that are pretty; prints make a powerful statement this summer.

10f

Stripey Girl

Vertical, diagonal, horizontal, summer stripes come in a myriad of colours.
