You will definitely start seeing mainly dresses on RD’s Obsessions. I want to take advantage of the summer weather and summer clothes. Dresses are only comfortable during the summer season in Chicago. Us Chicagoans definitely embrace the summer heat because before long, we know the harsh winter will be upon us.
Therefore, I’ve bought quite a few dresses for the summer (husband is rolling his eyes haha). I was able to determine which dresses I know I will get the most use out of and are the most flattering. See this yellow floral maxi dress, well ladies this is the only dress you need for the summer. It pretty much checks all the boxes for summer activities and occasions and oh it is flattering! Pretty much for any body type! If you are having trouble deciding on a size, I am wearing a size small and it is pretty roomy (I will explain why I love the roominess below).
Reasons why you only need this dress for the summer:
I already said this above, but because of the style of the dress, it is made to fit any body type. I was unsure with the overly flowy style, but as soon as I tied the waist, it was like the dress was made for me! My mom and sister tried it on too and they look amazing in it. Each one of us has a different body type.
Hello, this dress is only $61.97! After reading more of my reasons, you will see why this dress is so under priced!
Because of its flowy style, you don’t have to worry about how it fits. It is so breathable and you don’t have to feel so self-conscious in it.
This dress is so versatile. It is perfect for a wedding, baby showers, bridal showers, walking around the city being a tourist (I recommend pairing it with a two banded sandal), date night, girls night, picnic, and pool/beach coverup. Yes, you heard me it makes an awesome coverup. The tie-waist is completely detachable and it gives it a beachy, coverup look! How many dresses do you know that can be worn in a wedding and as a swimsuit coverup? Bet it’s close to none. Oh yea I also almost forgot to mention, work appropriate! Just pair it with a cardigan and ballet flats and you will be the chicest girl in the office!
I think this is the most important reason. It is a fun dress! The movement is so beautiful! The patterns and color is pretty and scream happy! You can’t go wrong with that.
