The Perfect Little Black Dress 2012

Why do you think you need a little black dress in the summer. Everyone needs a little black dress, even in the summer. There are weddings, graduations, parties, and unexpected events that sometimes mean you will look in your closet and the lilac dress you bought earlier this spring thinking you would wear it with everything is not quite right for the soiree you will be attending. Because it is summer lots of people think wearing black is not appropriate or too heavy. However, lots of brands are making dresses in lighter fabrics and summer appliques. Here are your top five black dresses for summer:

  1. Candela Elle Mini Dress: This is a summery black dress with a scoop neck and total appliques and a scalloped hem. The sleeveless design and tulle material is great for the hot days. You can buy this dress for $225.
  2. Madison Marcus Balm Dress: This dress also has an elegant scoop neck and is made from print silk-chiffon. It is ruched at the waist and has a knotted band at the waist that pulls in so it’s not shapeless. I’d buy this for $265.
  3. DV by Dolce Vita Colt Daisy Print Dress: This black dress has a cute daisy print on a black background and a cut out back with a lace tie. It’s made of cotton and is perfect for a summer picnic. Grab this at Piperlime for $132.
  4. Elizabeth and James Ikat Lou Silk Dress: This silk dress has a tight patterned bodice and a flared skirt. It has functional adjustable straps so anyone can wear it not matter their height. You can buy this at Shopbop for 50% off for $212.50.
  5. T by Alexander Wang Jersey Dress: This simple scoop neck knit dress is chic and trendy. It has an asymmetrical hem and is made with ultra soft, lightweight jersey. It is effortlessly cool and light enough great for this summer. You can find this at Nordstrom for $85.

Best Floral Dresses For Summer Fun

Don’t tell me that you closet has enough floral. Trust me, that’s not possible. There are so many different florals, not to mention different colors of the same ones. And what better a time to find some more floral dresses, than when flowers are actually blooming?


Here are my top 5 floral dresses for this summer:


Tucker Drawstring Cami Dress: I love the small red and pink floral clusters. This light silk scoop neck dress is simple, carefree and cute; not to mention that having on seam-pockets is great. Buy this on sale for $170.80 at Shopbop.

Alice + Olivia Fierra Dress: The best part of this dress is the floral, it’s not specifically patterned like most floral dresses are, making it a unique find for your closet. Also, the inverted front pleat and v-neck cut make the dress super flattering. You can get this on Shopbop for $220.

Blu Moon Summer Lovin’ Dress: This dress is made exclusively for Revolve Clothing. The ditsy floral is sweet, while the navy sets this frock apart from other dresses.  I’d buy this at Revolve Clothing for only $187.

Stones Devin Dress: This dress comes in both floral and lace, but this post is about my top 5 floral dresses. The appropriate neckline and length is reminiscent of the 1950’s while the bold floral pattern makes it perfectly trendy nowadays. Personally, I’d match it with a pair of awesome wedges. This is a great price, at only $149, buy it at Revolve Clothing.

Joie Alanna Dress: This turquoise dress is the perfect cover-up. The floral is somewhat geometric, but definitely eye catching for the pool or beach. Grab this for $288 on Revolve Clothing.

Reese Witherspoon blue floral dress

Reese Witherspoon was spotted recently in NYC’s SOHO shopping with beau Jake Gyllenhaal in this blue floral dress by Thakoon called the Falling Petals Draped Dress. I like the print on her but I don’t understand the black fedora with the whole look. The print is a very beautiful watercolor floral look Thakoon is famous for.
As you know Michelle Obama also favors dresses by Thakoon.

Click the photo to shop Reese Witherspoon’s look now in the same exact print. Great dress for a summer wedding.
