First, these summer dresses will still be in style next year. Second, classic styling allows you to accessorize one dress for a number of different looks. Properly accessorize, no one will be snidely thinking, “Oh, didn’t she wear that just the other day?”
White dresses for Summer? Duh!
For example, a plain, white dress, with an A-line cut, may be worn with a pair of red, platform style sandals, a red handbag and bright costume jewelry, to a luncheon date.

Your choice of colors, fabrics and pattern designs is also important in the overall success of versatile summer dresses. Solid colors are easiest to accessorize.
Your best bet is a mix that includes one white, one black and one of your favorite colors.
White and black dresses lend a dramatic element, while also showing off your tan nicely.
As for your favorite color, well, it’s probably your favorite color because it looks good on you!
Besides, this means it’s likely that you have accessory items in your closet that will coordinate well with that color.
When the number of summer dresses in your closet are limited, it’s better to choose patterns on a smaller scale. Large pattern designs tend to be more distinctive and memorable, as well as limiting your choice of accessories.

Classic jackets, such as blazer and bolero styles, are good additions to your wardrobe of summer dresses. Lightweight fabrics, such as cotton or linen, are comfortable and in keeping with warm summer weather.
