Who said that you have to wait until your wedding day to wear white?
I love the fresh look a white dress brings to your spring and summer wardrobe. If you are a neutral wearing girl like me, then this stunning eyelet midi from Zara is an absolute showstopper and a must have for summer.
This white eyelet midi has the most beautiful intricate detailing across the neckline which is very reminiscent to dresses we see from the brand Self Portrait. I I adore the subtle buttons down the front and the dainty spaghetti straps which attract attention to your décolletage and shoulders. The ‘A’ line style of the dress really helps to give you a defined waist, creating an elegant and ladylike silhouette. The floral eyelet pattern running through the dress accompanied by the fullness of the skirt, really does portray an ultra feminine feel. Eyelet patterns have been popping up across so many different brands this past spring and is still very much a trend we are seeing for Summer 2018. I love the timelessness of eyelet. It is one of the trends that you can confidently invest in as it will never go out of style. I was thrilled to see this pattern in a midi style dress as the midi dress and skirt have really taken storm for spring and summer of this year. It really is the year of the midi, and as you can see, it is a style that can both accentuate and compliment any body type.
I feel like the ‘midi’ is a style that is both overlooked and underestimated. If chosen wisely, it can do absolute wonders for your figure. If chosen or styled incorrectly, in can look frumpy or matronly. What you may not realize however, is that the midi really is your every day ‘lazy girl’ dress which couldn’t make it more perfect or practical for summer! On those super hot humid days when you are not feeling your tip top self and don’t want to put much time or thought into your outfit, this is when you turn to your midi. It may look like like I put a lot of effort into this look, but I really didn’t. I used my hair straightener which is the best ‘lazy girl’ hack for curling your hair. I threw on a pair of double stud statement earrings, a circular dainty necklace and my ever so versatile Fossil watch which goes with just about any outfit. I paired it with an understated matte nude clutch from Aldo, and my favourite Valentino dupe nude rock stud heels from Sole Society, which are the most comfortable pair of heels I own, might I add! My two-tone sunnies from Nordstrom add a more laid back feel to the overall look making this white eyelet dress so versatile for many occasions.
Now I would not recommend wearing this outfit to a wedding. You definitely do not want to be seen in white, as you do not want take away from the bride on her special day! This outfit would be perfect for a birthday party, baby shower, a patio party, a high tea, a special event you may be attending, brunch among girl friends or date night with that special someone. I recently wore this dress on my birthday and I really felt like the belle of the ball!
