SUMMER SOIREE STAPLE
When I saw this French Connection dress online, it promised me that it was universally flattering and would make all body types look totally bangin'. I was skeptical, but in the next few weeks I saw not one not two but THREE bloggers style it, all with completely different builds, and it did indeed look stunning on each one.
At that point, I was crushing on it hard and went ahead and ordered this gorgeous hot pink shade for a wedding we have coming up. I think this is the perfect little outdoor summer occasion dress. It's form fitting without being a strip of spandex, and the fabric is surprisingly breathable. You don't need a bra with it (praise that, I'm just wearing these), so it really is an ideal design for situations that might get sweaty! I've come across some great deals on the various shades online (it comes in a ton of colors if hot pink isn't your thing!), so I am sharing the links below!
Notes on fit: Size up one size from your typical dress size. You can even size up two sizes for a slightly less fitted look. I am wearing a 4 in these pics but ordered the saltwater blue shade in a 6.
Do you have a go-to summer event dress? I would love your recommendations!
