What Should You Wear on a Summer Date?


What Should You Wear on a Summer Date?

  • To an Art Gallery?

  • Dinner with Girlfriends?

  • A Patio Party?

Have you ever been shopping and gazed at a great dress or sandal and wondered, “where would I wear that”?  A summer occasion is the perfect opportunity to add that unexpected piece to your wardrobe.  I think it’s nice to have a few special pieces that you can have distinctively for your weekend gatherings.

This is a time to start building that “hot weather weekend wardrobe”. Spring clothing is on sale and summer apparel is in the stores full swing. You may want to experiment with a new color or silhouette.  If you’ve had your eye on a beautiful summer dress, it’s time to swoop it up and take your summer style up a notch.

Two Simple Ways To Update This Summer Season:


The Maxi Dress or Skirt

A silhouette you wouldn’t necessarily wear to work but a style that’s perfect for summer fun such as dinner dates with girlfriends or to a patio party. The maxi dress gives you a nice elongated look whether you’re short or tall. Don’t hesitate to hem the length to fit your height and shoes. You’re also going to love the ease it gives through the middle and best of all, this dress is so effortless to wear.

Update Your Sandals

I’m loving the color metallic. You will see it incorporated with nude, black, and taupe combination. It will add that glimmer of shimmer that takes your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary.

Styles to look for:


The Cage Sandal

For those of you who like a little texture. Many times it comes with a wood heel, which is a little more informal and casual. Pair it with a dress, shorts, or pants. They are great with a solid color, adds a finishing touch of pizzazz.

The Ankle Strap

Gives a little more feminine feel for those of you who love the ladylike or elegance look. They are great with an ankle pant or dress.  An ankle strap sandal delivers the extra +1 for a classy chic presence.

The Mule

The mule is back, though more beautiful than ever. This is a great shoe for your casual cotton pants or long flowy maxi dress. If you dress "Seattle casual" for work, this is also a great alternative.

Have FUN with your summer style!
