Don’t become stuck to a solid colored wardrobe. Enhance your appearance with vibrant, youthful colors. Just wearing electrifying colors will liven up your mood and others around you. I’m not saying go to work every day dressed like a rainbow, but once in a while allow yourself to wear some color.

Free flowing dresses are flattering and are great to wear during the heat. Nothing feels worse than your dress sticking to your body parts, and fun loving colors exude pure happiness! The split neck has a small flair that creates an illusion of a slightly longer neck. If you have a huge bust, then I would make sure you get the proper size.

This next dress is similar to the one above in some ways, but also different. The Freya Scarf Print Dress is a great representation of class. It’s a loud, printed dress but the free flowing look and the long sleeves differentiate this dress from most. I love the white and gold chained belt because the belt makes the entire dress pop and finishes the dress off beautifully. Grab a fab clutch and you are ready to head out.

Plaid is back! I love this Kate Spade Felix Dress. It’s a free spirit dress. It is conservative, yet a playful dress. You can transform this dress in many ways. Get creative with your accessories, or leave it simple and bright with some ballerina slippers.

My new favorite color is green because it looks flattering with all skin tones. Whether you avoid the sun or bask in it, this color blends nicely with all skin types for a bold color. This dress has blocked colors of orangish-beige and hints of pink. This simple, straight cut is perfect for a tall gal. If you’re short and curvy, then this dress will not do you justice.

Do you need something new to show your figure off? This Lilly Pulitzer dress is a striped dress fit for a ‘50s fashion diva. Audrey Hepburn would have worn this. The hip hugging dress is fresh. Looking at it makes me want to go to a polo match and drink lemonade.
