Summer Style: The Jersey Dress
Summer will be here before you know it and that means one thing: it’s time to get your summer wardrobe ready. After putting away sweaters and wool pants, the desire to raid every local store of their entire supply of shorts, tank tops, and skirts can be tempting. Unfortunately, that’s not an option for most of us. If you plan your wardrobe carefully, you’ll be able to get plenty of wear out of a few great pieces. The most versatile piece in your summer closet? The jersey dress! Here’s how they can work any summer activity.
A womens jersey dress is the perfect answer when searching for an outfit for traveling. What makes them so great? The material won’t wrinkle like many other fabrics, making it perfect for rolling up and throwing into a carryon bag. When you arrive at your destination, you’ll appreciate the versatility of the dress. Dress it up for nights out or dress it down for a casual day of sightseeing.
For long flights or drives, being comfortable is key. Jersey fabric is breathable and will keep you comfortable while wearing a dress will make you look more put together than if you showed up in your pajamas. When traveling on a plane, toss a cardigan or a pair of leggings in your bag to cover up if it gets chilly.
For Summer Weddings
Looking forward to a summer full of wedding celebrations? Don’t spend a ton of money of different dresses for each event. Grab a dress from your closet and make it work. The ladies jersey dress selection in many stores will offer a great variety of colors and prints if you don’t already have some in your closet. Find a dress you love and build a wedding appropriate outfit.
The right shoes can make the outfit. Add strappy sandals to make your outfit look more formal. Drop earrings and a few simple bracelets will complete your look. Bring a scarf to cover up in the evening. For more casual weddings and events, opt for wedges or flat sandals. A thick belt around the dress will look great and stud earrings are the best accessory. Grab a cardigan sweater to keep warm when the party lasts into the night.
For The Beach
Less is more is usually the big rule of beach fashion. It’s the time to get out your bikini and not worry about putting together a cute outfit. However, there are times at the beach when you’ll need to cover up. When you pack up your beach bag to head to lunch with friends, a womens jersey dress can help you go from the beach to the cafe in no time.
Choose a dress that isn’t fussy. A simple tee shirt dress or something sleeveless will be the most comfortable. Wrap it up and throw it in your bag to quickly throw over your swimsuit. You’ll be thankful for the thinner fabric after spending your morning in the hot sun. Add a pair of brightly colored flip flops and dust the sand off before heading out. The only accessories you’ll need are a pair of sunglasses and a great tan.
For A Girls Day
There’s nothing better in the summer than a girls’ day out. Pick a ladies jersey dress for an outfit that will take you through the whole day. A casual brunch with friends is a great way to start the day. Wear your dress with wedge sandals and a thin cardigan sweater to meet up with your friends for mimosas and french toast. Throughout the rest of the day, the thin jersey fabric will keep you comfortable and cool.
Heading out for a day of shopping? A quick change of shoes will get you through the day. Jersey dresses look great with a cute pair of sneakers. Slip on shoes will keep your feet comfy while you make your way from store to store. Stopping by the nail salon for pedicures? Throw on a pair of flip flops instead. At the end of the day, go out for dinner. Another shoe change, to heels this time, and the addition of some pretty jewelry will take your outfit from day to night.
If you’re lucky enough to work in an office with a somewhat loose dress code, this simple dress can fit right in with your summer work wardrobe. Look for a dress with a higher neckline and hemline to avoid looking inappropriate for the work environment. Staying covered up is the key to not looking like you’re heading to the beach. A lightweight, open cardigan will add some polish to your look. Simple stud earrings look professional. Add a pair of pumps and you’re ready for the office. Get ready to be the comfiest women in the room.
