Style Guide to Styling swimwear// SPRING EDIT

Hi Lovelies.

Tis the season of music festivals, pool parties, and other outdoor activities! And while it is a little early to be planning what you’ll be wearing at Coachella all the while the world is in quarantine (due to the coronavirus) we are all praying that this pandemic ends; here is a little fashion inspiration to look forward to.

With the summer swiftly approaching, I am finding myself switching my jeans to shorts, and hoodies to crop tops; and while making these drastic changes in my wardrobe, I have discovered that swimsuits are the new co ord outfit for the upcoming season. I know what you’re thinking, “aren’t swimsuits for the pool?” Total misconception in fashion, swimsuits have recently took a turn for the perfect summer outfit, so while some may call it tacky I have found a few fashionable ways to style these for everyday wear. Dresslily, offers amazing swimwear at amazing prices and offers major deals on top of that!

When it comes to styling 1- piece bathing suits, there are so many selections as to what to wear, take this outfit for example; I styled this simple 1- piece with a pair of leather joggers, some chunky ankle boots ( which is in style, btw) an off the shoulder handbag, and of course, some jewels. Styling up neutrals is so much fun, because you can keep it minimalistic with adding more neutrals or pairing it with some color pieces, either way you’ll be able to take the perfect pic for Instagram.

For the second look I chose an animal print 2- piece bikini, don’t be intimidated animal print is just a bolder version of a neutral. I paired this with some faux leather shorts and a jean jacket and some sneakers; obviously this was a reference to all my festival go-ers.

Refresh your wardrobe! Shop dresslily to get the best prices on the best quality fashion for all occasions.

Spring Edit // The revival of the block sandal

Hi Lovelies,

Finding the perfect spring sandal can be quite the mission. Let’s face it, while finding sundresses, shorts, rompers, and other spring attire nothing completes the look without the perfect shoe. When it comes to looking for the perfect spring clog, sandal, mule or whatever the choice may be a lot is taken into consideration when deciding what to break the bank on. I mean think about the color of the shoe, the cut, whether it’s a heel or flat, all goes into thought when picking the perfect spring heel (or flat for that matter).

I remember watching an episode of sex and the city, I forget what episode it was but charlotte had a foot obsessed admirer that gave her the most gorgeous pair of sandals for free; all she had to do was try on the shoes, and though the sandals was just shown at a glimpse I recognize the detail of that sandal down to the height of the heel. Most of the fashion that has made its way to our closets has been from the decades that we can’t stop revisiting, shoes are no different. The block sandal is the most selectable spring trend right now, and a lot of fashion seekers (including myself) are all on board for these blocked beauties.

Many designers are on the trend as well, Chanel, YSL, Jeffery Campbell, and other designers has spruced up spring with their many versions of the sandal and this is the square toe sandal everyone needs in their collection. And it’s not only designers many online boutiques, Qupid, Simmishoes, Boohoo, Public desire all have their versions as well for amazing ( all CAPS) prices. These square toe sandals offer comfort but style as well there isn’t an outfit that these shoes won’t style up. Here are few selections that I know are bound to turn heads!
