Blue Floral Gown

With a blue floral print and cinched waist, this dainty dress offers a vision of grace. The open-back detailing adds to the romance and feminine design for a flattering silhouette. The modest dress is perfect for Mass and special occasions, but it also looks great for vacations with a bohemian aesthetic.

If you like the vintage floral look, check out this dress with fluttery beaded appliques. The fluttering flowers create a 3-D effect that adds to the romantic appeal of this style. The floral design is easy for a formal wedding day or night and fits various dress codes.

Dresses in light, airy fabrics like from Fran’s are perfect for warmer weather. Many options exist, from modern Japanese crepe to vacation-appropriate linen and breathable chiffon. You can find petite dresses in mini, midi, or maxi lengths, depending on how much leg you want to show.

Olive Green Skater Dress

The olive green skater dress is a casual-meets-cute style with charming details like a high-rounded neckline and a flattering, elasticized waist. The long sleeves frame the flared skater skirt, which is great for all bust sizes. Add a cute pair of heels and some fine accessories to dress this up. A great bag can make or break an outfit, so it’s worth searching for one that perfectly complements your dress and occasion. Wear this dress with a cute denim jacket or a simple white blazer for warmth.

A skinny belt can help accentuate the waistline even more, so including one in your accessory lineup is a good idea. Combat boots are an excellent option for this dress, too.

A lace dress is a great way to dress up for any occasion. This fit-and-flare style has a flattering sweetheart neckline with fixed cami straps and is accented with lace trim and buttons that add texture. Pair it with heels and a mini bag to complete your elevated look.

Midi dresses are versatile because they don’t limit your footwear options like other dress lengths. Plus, they can go from work-ready to date night by simply swapping out accessories or adding a cropped jacket.

Another option for midi dresses is to cinch them in with a waist belt. This will help to define your waist and make you look leaner. This is especially beneficial if you have a midi dress that ends at your mid-calf because it can create the illusion of longer legs.
