A Popular Summer Trend
I’ve been seeing a lot of tie-front dresses lately and I am hooked! I swear, summer comes out with the best trends! I don’t know if it is the fact that you can have a bow on your dress (I love bows!) or the cut-out detail that gives it a summer feel, but all I know is that I want to try out this summer trend!
A couple weeks ago was my sister’s birthday and for her birthday she wanted to have an afternoon tea time at The Allis. For those of you who are not familiar with The Allis, it is a section in Soho House and they offer afternoon tea. There are uniquely made tea blends with delicious spreads of tea sandwiches, scones, and fancy cakes. I highly recommend it. I was convinced and heard about the place when I discovered them through Instagram. Are you convinced now that you have to go too?
Well as always, we decided it would be fun to dress up. I took this as an opportunity to wear a tie-front dress. That’s when I discovered this striped tie-front midi dress from Boohoo. It has a slight cut-out in the front and the tie makes a prominent bow. Actually, I didn’t have to tie it. It was already tied into a bow for me. Makes my life easy because I can never tie a perfect bow haha.
I fell in love with its striped style (loveeee stripes) and midi length. It is classy, feminine, but still a little fashion forward. This dress gave me a flavor of the tie-front dress trend and let’s just say I am hungry for more. I definitely want to try out this trend more before summer ends!
Here are 5 other tie-front dresses I am eyeing under $150:
1. Floral Tie-Front Midi ($55)
This floral print dress has a very feminine feel to it. The tie has a tiny bow and has a smocked back for comfort.
2. Mixed Gingham Dress ($48)
The fact that this dress is gingham already won me over. It is the print of the summer! This dress mixes two different gingham patterns and creates a unique look.
3. Chambray Wide-Leg ($148) – TOTALLY OBSESSED
This may not be a dress but the wide-leg style gives it an appearance of a dress. So if you are craving a dress during a windy day, this jumpsuit is the one to wear. Living in the windy city, it’s so perfect!
4. Tie-Front Midi Dress ($75)
This dress has a retro feel to it. It is made out of a lightweight woven fabric which makes it very breathable during the heat. I love the button front detail!
5. Striped Tie-Front ($69)
I couldn’t resist a striped dress. It has bold vertical stripes with a classic feel to it.
