Let’s talk about Summer dresses 2021 baby! As the Spring season has arrived, so did the new trends. It’s now time to complete our wardrobes with the trendiest dresses, the most delightful colours & prints and the most feminine cuts. I’ve put together a selection of 7 dresses that you need to be wearing this Summer at the beach, while sipping cocktails on a terrace and while dancing the night away. Let’s have a look ⚡️

1. Pink ruffles

This one’s an Instagram eye catcher. As a debut attire, we have this cute ruffle dress. I really like this one because its puffy sleeves give it such a distinguished look! You won’t feel too much like a doll because it’s quite short – the perfect combination between sexy and sweet. Plus, your legs will look incredibly long.

You can literally wear this dress on so many occasions during summer, from brunch to a walk in the park; this dress fits perfect for everything.

The trend firstly appeared long time ago. And guess what?! It obviously came back. Ruffles are a big part of the whole boho chic aesthetic. Therefore, if you loved the boho chic period somewhere in 2012, now it’s the perfect time to get one of these dresses. TikTok also had a great influence over the ruffle dresses. The cottage core aesthetic, which gained popularity and attention due to many TikTok users, is also perfect for ruffles!

2. The polka dot dress

Moving to the another one, this beautiful polka dots dress has won a well deserved place in my list.

The wide structure makes it easier to wear – your dress won’t be blown by the wind for sure. The dress can adjust its aesthetic value and enable you to wear it both on day and night time, obviously wearing the right shoes and accessories.

Considering how much prints are in trend right now, polka dot dresses are also a must try for 2021. Moreover, you can feel vintage and trendy at the same time!

3. Yellow pastels

This pastel yellow dress is such a jewel. The base of the dress is a yellow veil material in light tones which show off any pair of shoes you will choose.

My recommendation would be to wear it with a pair of colourful sandals, in order to spice up your fit. Don’t forget to wear it with confidence, cause I’m 100% sure you’ll rock it!

This type of tulle dresses are just perfect for any type of garden party or for more formal occasions during the day.

You can for sure see pastel yellow and green on every celebrity’s instagram at the moment. Pastel yellow bags, tops, vests and now dresses. Amazing, am I right?

4. Pin-up inspo?

This green piece is definitely inspired by pin-up fashion, but it’s made relevant to our new age. Everything about this dress goes perfectly with the idea of a sunny day!

Energize yourself with some vitamin D and choose this dress for a girly, refined look. Perfect for a brunch, this type of dress will help radiate with positivity and happiness!

Also inspired from the cottage core aesthetic, these type of dresses are mostly worn by the teen influencers! You can check out Addison’s Rae instagram for more similar looks.

5. Milky way

How could I forget the silky white dress? Silk dresses are for sure a trend this Summer and let me tell you, a silk white dress goes perfectly in the night scenery. The colour will accentuate your beautiful tan.

Moreover, its simplicity brings out so much elegance and refinement. You can accessorise it with pearls and gold jewellery. Your aesthetic will certainly glow while wearing this amazing summer fit.

These beautiful satin dress is for sure one thing Kendall Jenner would wear! Minimal and sexy, the white satin dresses became a trend immediately.

6. Tiered midi dress

Imagine yourself visiting your favourite city. This dress is for sure one of the best fits in order to look fashionable, but still be comfortable! Its shape makes the dress so refreshing and perfect for summer.

Moreover, you can style it with mostly all types of sandals. Straw accessories, such as bags or hats, go perfectly with the beige colour of the dress. This type of accessories will also bring the look a summerish sparkle.

If you’ve ever followed influencers that love exploring and travelling a lot, you’ve probably seen these type of dresses a lot. They are such a trend now if you are up for some adventures!

7. The desert dress

When it comes to summer dresses 2021, my last but not least recommendation is THE desert dress. I like to name it this way due to the many editorials that presented this type of dress in a desert scenario. The great part about this type of piece its that the dress itself is spectacular, therefore you won’t even have to accessorize it if you don’t feel like it.

Moreover, you can literally wear it everywhere and you’ll look just like a desert princess! Try it out and let me know how you’ve styled it.

All things considered, this Summer will be for sure great from a fashion point of view. I literally can’t wait to see what trends are going to emerge! Slide into my Instagram DMs and let me know which dress was your favourite one!

How do you feel about your wardrobe right now? I feel that when it comes to my style I’m always looking for ways to upgrade it or make it look fresh without buying completely new outfits (from a sustainability point of view, but also because I live in London and space is quite limited). Now that you know what the inspiration behind this article is, let’s jump into finding out my favourite simple ways to give your wardrobe a fresh look!

1. Wear hair accessories

Yes to hair accessories – probably the only trend that I’m really into at the moment. Pearl clips, marble clips or hair bands, I’m pretty much into anything that can add something to my outfit. Have a think about how you’re going to mix the accessories with your outfits, because they can totally change your overall appearance. Have fun with it!

2. Mix statement tops with high waisted jeans

Absolutely love to do this when I get the chance. Wear a ruffle or big sleeved top with some high waisted jeans and you’re going to take your outfit from boring to impressive. I like how it sits at the border of elegant and casual – making it suitable for many occasions, including cocktail parties, garden birthday parties or even on your holidays. This mix is such a simple way to upgrade your wardrobe and never run out of styles. Enjoy wearing this fun look.

3. Start wearing low heels

I only started wearing heels about a month ago and now we’re rarely apart. They add that wow factor to my outfits and I absolutely love that. It’s strange because I’m like a kid who just discovered chocolate. No, I won’t have a go at eating my shoes, although I love them just as much as I love chocolate. Start wearing low heels and you’ll feel how confident you’re becoming. Confident in yourself and in your own style. Do I need to say that they go with almost anything?

4. Wear statement earrings

Whoop whoop 🙌 statement earrings are such a wonder. I can wear them for limited time only because I’m allergic to nickel. But, I make sure I’ll enjoy them and get a nice snap while at it. Have you noticed how an outfit can change when you wear bold earrings? I definitely see a big change when I’m wearing bold accessories. It’s really the simplest way to upgrade your wardrobe.

One Summer Outfit You Need to Wear on Your Next Holiday

5. Start wearing your belts

The difference belts can make in an outfit. Such a massive one that I was raving about them in this article too. I’m sure you own a belt or two, but never get round wearing them. Choose an outfit that you like from your closet and put a belt around it. You’re going to notice that the outfit will look absolutely stunning.  I prefer a medium sized belt with a visible buckle because that will make the most impact on your outfit. Who thought that a belt can upgrade your wardrobe in one second? Quick win! Tag me on Instagram at @notagirlygal for me to check out your take on belts.

I’m so happy to share my tips with you! It’s your time to experience new styles this summer and  just have fun with it. There are no rules in fashion, besides the most basic ones, so reinvent yourself everyday. What’s your favourite store this season?

Until next time,

You’re probably looking at your screen thinking ‘not another shopping related post’. If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you probably know that I’m not constantly shopping for new items, but sometimes I think having something new feels good. At the moment, I only buy clothes that are unique and look interesting to me. It’s all in the details, babe, because quite frankly and luckily enough, I don’t need anything else as I’m sure most girls don’t actually need to splurge on fashion every week. A few weeks ago, knowing that my shoe collection wasn’t as strong on the summer side, I’ve decided to get a few pairs (at once), but also get some accessories as well while I was at it. Here we are now, we’re looking at the current must haves for Summer 2019!

With its beautiful colours, blooming flowers, warm weather and endless outfit possibilities, summer is making its way to the United Kingdom. As the Brits love the sun (and not only) just as much as the bees love pollen, you can expect lots of good vibes on the streets and a fashion freedom that sometimes can be taken to the extremes. I’ve taken a step back from the long pattern dresses and midi skirts that are trending right now, making girls look like farm keepers (everyone is really free to wear whatever, but this trend is not for me). If you’re done with that look, I’m proposing you a summer outfit that you have to try out now by using clothes you already have in your wardrobe!

Search your wardrobe for work shirts

We all have shirts that we wear to business meetings or more corporate events (do you love this word too?) and it would be a fashion waste not to wear them outside work, obviously styled in a different way. Buttons up is not compulsory, so you can show off a shoulder or both to make the blouse look more casual. Simply unbutton the upper part of your shirt enough so you feel comfortable with it on your shoulder/s and tie a knot at the bottom.

Last summer’s favourite shorts

Remember your favourite shorts from last summer? Pull them out of the bag and pair them with your just styled shirt. Go for white shorts: they’ll give you a more stylish vibe. It took me a while to start wearing white, so if you’re having second thoughts it’s completely understood. However, know this: white is addictive. Soon after I started buying white white and white items.

Your Elegant Flats

As you’re wearing a business casual shirt, go for elegant flats instead of your beloved converses. I’ve found this gem of a pair in an outlet in Bordeaux and fallen in love immediately with its front bow detail. If you happen to have some elegant flats that you think will go well in this combination, why not wear them instead buying a new pair? I’ve however linked at the end of the article similar items just in case.

Oh, hello shiny earrings! It can be argued that this pair of earrings is suitable for evening wear. I say, just have fun with it and incorporate some elegant (colourful) earrings into this outfit because the flats and shirt really allow for it. It’s summer – fashion rules still apply, but we can be more flexible, can’t we? Statement earrings are the way this summer.

Straw bags

Straw bags have been a hit last summer – glossy magazines shown them in all shapes and sizes & fashion websites and fashion bloggers were vowing for them too. I recently got my first one and indeed they’re so cute to wear. Let’s enjoy summer friendly accessories while we still can. Just be careful with your valuable items inside the bag – usually these bags don’t come with a zip.

Hello there my favourite girls,

For me the whole summer dressing style relies on flowy fabrics, dreamy prints and perhaps some ruffles here and there. When it comes to prints, somehow I always pick stripes, no matter the season (writing this I’m wearing a stripy T-shirt), and I have one best friend that does that too. One day when we were out shopping, we saw this absolute gorgeous stripped jumper… we looked at it, we looked at each other and she said ‘I think we’re good with stripes’ and none of us got it in the end. That was one thing, but I didn’t have anything with stripes for summer. I saw this pair in Zara in the beginning of May, haven’t planned on buying more stripes and decided they would look wonderful with wedges by the Sicilian sea shore. I was so right! Let’s style this outfit together, shall we?

Styling stripy pants

I’m super aware that fashion magazines encourage us to mix patterns with other patterns. Well, unless they’re Dolce Gabbana pants with other Dolce Gabbana tops, I don’t feel it’s safe.  Yes, I don’t like when I see too many patterns in an outfit and yes, I don’t encourage it. I am never afraid to ‘take sides’, but this doesn’t mean I have something against it. I know you know that, I just felt the need to say it, because things are taken way too personal these days.

miss andrada street photography

I always say that a super cool outfit has something interesting about both (top and bottom items). You’ll notice this from the outfits that I’m posting. Here, I am wearing a bra having 2 stripes in front – which you can’t really see because of the big chain necklace. Then, I have chosen a simple loose T-shirt on top. I have found this shirt a while back in a charity shop I believe – it’s just from Zara but it’s made out of this knit fabric that I really like. So, the both make a really interesting top to go with the pants.

Tricks for baggy T-shirts?

My trick for a baggy shirt is making a knot on a side to give it a casual look, but also in this case I needed something less baggy as the pants are baggy enough. Do you know what I mean? Same goes for wearing cloche dresses – you just want to wear them with something slim fit on top.

Keep your colour palette to B&W

I like to wear black and white completely when I wear stripes. It just feels right. It makes me laugh now because I wish I could show you my outfit now when writing this post from Bella Italia in the airport – stripy T-shirt and black leather skirt. All Black and White.

TIP: Create a story for your outfit

This outfit takes me to the flower power times. It has that bohemian vibe. Don’t you reckon? That’s why I love fashion so much. You can get inspired by any look or age and transform it into an outfit. Someone in the agency once told me that everyday I look so different, and now I understand why. I like to play around with different looks and just have fun with it. For me, there’s really little rules to fashion (but I have some rigid ones), it’s more about being able to express myself and feel confident.

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a new idea for an end of summer outfit.  How do you like to wear your stripes? Let me know in the comments below!

Love,

Hello there,

Wearing something cool and comfortable in the same time, during the days that are sightly ‘colder’ than the usually summer days can be a bit difficult. Should you wear a dress? Then, you’ll probably be cold. Should you wear flats? Then, you would probably ruin them in case it rains. No more headaches! For those days, I created, what I like to call ‘the autumn outfit for summer’.

miss andrada how to wear a bold outfit 2

As you can see, this is not an autumn outfit. Otherwise, I would have call it just that.I easily took some elements that are assigned to autumn styling. But, you probably like to wear items that are not just for summer, too  – and you totally should because it will upgrade your cold summer evenings’ outfits.

Upgrading your summer outfits

Let’s take a basic summer outfit: shorts and a simple white top (similar here). You would wear this in summer, right? Now, when a summer day is a bit cold you shouldn’t go for long pants, light jumpers and so on. You can still wear your summer clothes! Just wear them with army boots, hats (find mine here), a leather jacket (find mine on sale here) or even longer boots if they are light. I PROMISE you,  your overall appearance will be so cool and you’ll feel so much better – sometimes long pants on a summer day can be a pain (I’m talking from experience haha).

Adding confidence to your outfit

If you’re not used to mixing items like so and if you need a bit of confidence for it, just remind yourself that you are your own kind of beautiful and you can wear whatever empowers you.

Finding your own style

It might be that hats are not your thing or that leather jackets are not. You can try to come up with replacements for these: big statement earrings – the ones you would normally wear in October, or trenches. Take my tips above and just twist them and adapt them to your own style. Get creative and you’ll start to reinvent your wardrobe.

Enjoyed this article? I would love for you to share it on your favourite social media platform or talk to your friends about it 🙂

What is your fashion way of embracing the colder summer days?

Lots of love,

Hey there 🙋🏻

Do you struggle with clothes in summer?

Do you feel like all of your tops and shorts just look horrible together? Girl, I absolutely can relate to that. I find it quite challenging to put an outfit together when there are 30 degrees outside. Let’s get into what exactly I do to come up with easy, on the go outfits.

Find 5 clothing pieces that you like from your wardrobe

They don’t have to go together. Just choose the ones you best like and represent yourself. Not something you’ve seen online and bought it because you thought it was cool for the moment. Think about something along these lines: timeless and items that are 100% you. I would recommend picking 5 items, so you have a solid starting point. They can be dresses, tops, shorts, skirts, sandals, you name it. So, gather your beloved items only please and get ready to the next stage.

Reinvent the way you wear your clothes

Next, you want to come up with new ways of mixing your clothes, so they look different (to you) than what you’re used to wearing usually. It’s like giving your outfits a second ‘life’. I happened to come up with this idea of making my outfits fresh after I went on a rant about my wardrobe. I’m not the one to stay in the complaining mood for too long, so I prefer coming up with a solution. For example, I really like this yellow dress, but it goes boring wearing it on its own all the time. So, I just added a cool shirt on top. Voila, a new outfit. Don’t stop just at adding new things on top, but be creative: other shoes, maybe change the hairstyle a bit, or even add some statement jewellery or accessories. I always worn this dress with converse and a backpack, so to me this restyling of it, makes me feel like it’s a completely new outfit.

Loving your wardrobe again miss andrada

But.. Andrada, what if I don’t have time…? Well, we’re all busy with our lives, but I truly believe that there are a lot of times when you can actually fit it 30 minutes for yourself. Can’t you? 💋

So, reinventing your wardrobe should be on your top priority list any season and whenever you feel like your wardrobe can be a bit mundane. What is your way of falling back in love with your clothes?

Lots of love,

cropped-15109541_1346191695414778_2346682693149712455_n-813215180-1504726673550-1.jpg

Heya lovelies,

How is your summer going? Even though London is hot right, I feel like I will miss the summer sunsets, the nice picnics in Kensington Garden and the cool summer outfits and oh the summer travelling.

When it comes to summer outfits, I do have some pet peeves. You know it’s all about positivity here and everybody is wearing whatever they like. In the same time, I would like to give you some guidance on mistakes I have noticed – from my personal point of view of course- when it comes to wearing low waist shorts.

 💋

The number one mistake: Low waist shorts paired with a crop top

I think the title said enough already. Why would we even consider looking like we’re having a ‘daytime bathing suit’ on? Only covering the top and the bottom doesn’t look appropriate or high class. Instead of going for a crop top, try to pair low waist shorts with a on the shoulders blouse or a ruffle blouse.

  1. Cropped shoulders blouse

Why does this look better?

The pants are plain white – this allows me to add a pattern if I feel like it, so I have chosen to wear a polka dot blouse. Notice how the shoulders stand out in this all white outfit. It’s better to have one focus point in your outfit, than to have too much going on. The outfits can then look very much random and not making much sense. It would be a shame as you actually have planned it, right? So keep your focus to one point of the outfit. In this case: the cleavage.

how to wear white shorts

        2.  Ruffle Blouse

Why does this look better?

Same as above really. I kept the focus on the ruffles of the blouse instead of going for showing bare skin everywhere. Much more appropriate and cooler in the same time. And yes, I do love an all white outfit lately!

Keep on reading for more cool tips

  1. When wearing basic shorts like the ones here do not pair them with a basic tank top – it will result in a boring outfit. Who needs boring stuff in her life?
  1. The longer the coverage on your upper part, the more focus you’ll give to your legs. Wear a leather jacket or a statement blouse.

BONUS

If you’re choosing denim shorts, then a cool look would be to pair them with a nude knit for summer. A bit of West End vibes don’t hurt us, right?

Thank you for reading this post today – share it on Facebook! 🙂 What’s your favourite outfit?

Love,

As shown in British Vogue June, shorts are your new summer staple. They swear they’ve seen shorts worn under cocktail dresses at Nina Ricci and Chloe. Not denim shorts of course! But what do we care? We’ll do our own summer staple out of denim high waisted shorts, because they are way cooler. Boss girls, let’s see how we can best wear them this summer!

Denim shorts are cool – we know that already, however they can bring a ‘basic’ feel to your outfit. And girl you want to be anything, but not basic (not anything, but you get the idea). I feel a great way of putting together a stylish outfit is to always bring in interesting fabrics and accessories.

Styling denim shorts

Anja Rock Embroidery Top

The upper part is so important to get right. Get a sheer crop top and you ruined it. As the shorts are exposing a good part of your skin, you want to ensure you’re pretty much covered else where. Try this: pair them with a emrbroided top (mine is actually a dress I knotted in the back) or even a ruffle top. You’ll feel amazing in the combo.

Stefanel Hat

You know what I like to say: to make the outfit pop, wear a hat! I adore this piece from Stefanel! The colour on your hat should match or at least go with your outfit colour palette. Otherwise, all the eyes will be on your hat and not your outfit. Imagine this outfit with a red hat! I’m on the next train to Nopeland!

This is the first pair of trainers I gave bought in years. They are feminine and have beautiful ribbons. No one can resist a ribbon lace. I know I can’t!

Hello my favourite fashionistas,

It’s summer time!

Well, in most of parts of the world is – so the perfect time to talk about our favourite summer outfits that you can easily take to your favourite resorts around the world. No matter where you go, a beach resort or a city break adventure, you will find something you can wear and feel amazing in, so keep on reading.

I recently came back from a city break / beach resort getaway in Palermo, Italy and I packed practical outfits that allowed me to fully enjoy my time and feel amazing everyday. It’s a skill that took a long time to master (trust me haha), but I just feel that this time, I didn’t pack stuff that I didn’t wear. I’ll show you my everyday outfits that I used to wear at beach and around the city. Let’s get into it.

City break outfit

I can’t explain how easy it is to move around in this outfit! What I love most about it is the cute aspect of it. The ribbon on my Reserved shoes and the silk material of the River Island top, makes the outfit ‘flow’ nicely on the narrow streets of Palermo while enjoying a cannoli and a glass of Aperol Spritz. No wonder my favourite country is Italy! MY TIP: Wear a hat in case the sun is strong – I swear by a hat as this one was super helpful for keeping any headaches away!
