Occasion season has well and truly rolled around, and we couldn't be more excited! In the past few years, we've been associating occasion wear with midi dresses. However, last year we saw the (long awaited!) return of shorter hemlines and this trend has already found it's way Into occasion wear. While we usually see mini dresses as a more casual style, This isn't always the case! Here are some of our favourite styles to show off your pins this Spring/Summer!
We've been LOVING bright colours this year and this cerise pink is one of our current favourites! The exaggerated sleeves of this style add volume and a little bit of drama to the top of the dress, and creates a visual space between the arms and the dress for a slimming effect on the arms, while the frill hem balances this out really well by having the exact same effect on the legs, which are slimmed further by the shorter hemline that will naturally elongate the legs!
We've been getting major Legally Blonde vibes from this pink mini dress, and we're always more than ready to channel our inner Elle Woods! While this style is super simple, we love the small details to add the prefect finishing touch, from the feminine on trend crochet cut out detailing at the waistline, to the frill sleeves and hemline to add volume and drama to the arms and legs for a super slimming effect. As much as we adore our cerise pink, red, and emerald green tones at the minute, the pastel colour of this style is understated enough to allow you to pair a real statement heel with this one, which is an opportunity we'll never turn down!
It's hard to choose a favourite from our Ivy Lane Prints, but this vintage inspired blush ditsy floral print might just be up there! The square neckline of this style allows you to show off some skin, and helps create the illusion of curves while offering more support than a v neckline, making it the perfect option for family occasions! In addition to this, the on trend frill hemline creates volume on the bottom of the body for a slimming effect on the legs!
We may have found the cutest summer dress! The tied waistline of this one draws the attention to the waist to add real shape and definition to the body and help give us that hourglass shape, while the frill hem will once again add volume to the bottom of the body for a slimming effect on the legs!
If you know the GTT Team, you'll know how much we love wrap dresses! This just so happens to be one of our go-to styles when we're on the hunt for something that will give us than enviable hourglass silhouette. The tied waistline will automatically lift the bust as well as draw attention to the waistline. How amazing would this one be with a bright statement shoe?
