Brightly Coloured Dresses

Warm weather outside, longer daylight hours, and a lot of living outdoors. These are signs that we are finally approaching that time of year of the brightest and longest days. Yes, summer is just a few days away! 

With this, invitations for outside gatherings, after-work cocktails, and seaside soirées pop up in your inbox. But if the year-round fall/winter after-five frock claims for structured textiles, velvet textures or glitzy finishes, the spring/summer cocktail dress prioritizes comfort, vibrant colours, and airy fabrics. 

Keep reading on to see our favourite choices, and get ready to RSVP yes for your next summer evening.

With the sunny warm days coming, a dainty blooming floral dress is undoubtedly one of the best options. Printed dresses are one of the most versatile items in the spring/summer wardrobe since they can be easily dressed up or down for the beach, alfresco dinners, office or nights out. Inherently feminine, flowy dresses are perfect for catching a cool summer breeze. So if you are attending an upscale event this summer, that's our bet. So simple, yet so elegant. 


When the sun begins to go down and bless us with that amazing golden hour light, the glorious colour-blocked hot pink is the perfect one to merge with the sunset sky. It is a straight "jaw-dropping effect", and you will surely get many compliments. So accessorise it with some gold jewellery & strappy heels, and get ready to own the night.

For an enchanting evening under the stars there is nothing better than a soft-to-touch satin dress with a glossy finish. You can choose between a bold green colour or soft rose gold. Either way, a gold-tone brooch at the one shoulder adds a modern touch balancing effortlessly with the bias-cut skirt that will sway gracefully when you walk. 

Then, of course, summer calls for lovely details and modern iterations of strong statement accessories that can lift any outfit to another level. Think effortless styles that benefit minimal or unfussy tastes, and go for pastel bicolour earrings. If the idea is to boast sophistication while having an affinity for romanticism, a multicoloured crystal headband is a spot-on choice. The playful colours from lilacs, yellow and pops of pink will guarantee all eyes on you.
