Long dresses from the Pre-Fall 2016 collections

A garment that I really like but I never know where to find is a good long dress. I think it’s perfect for summer, when we have not-so-tanned-yet legs, absent muscular tone, we didn’t have time for a wax… but I think it’s not so easy to find in stores, and apart from those in plain cotton or viscose (which I think are very cheap) we don’t have so much choice. Here are some of my favorites from the Resort 2016 collections

A bit large, I know, but the splits and the strings give movement to it and long sleeves are good for summer evenings. Plus, who doesn’t like black silk?

I always like a good 90’s inspired/camisole dress, of course just for women with a flat chest. This one has a midi lenght and the double shoulder straps give it an edge. There is also a bit of a deep v-neck situation, we have nothing to hide anyway…

A long dress with structure, white with some applications to avoid the bride effect…

Again, the camisole dress, a bit of pink to cheer us up and sequins, just in case you want to wear it in the evening

My heart beats for everything that is voile / gingham/ Rochas. The perfect day dress, wide enough to not sweat and with some transparency to avoid resembling to a tablecloth. Of course, if you wanted to be sexy it is not the right dress

My love for this brand is growing with each collection. Rosie’s clothes are absolutely unique and she has a specific style each season. How much I would love to wear this to a summer wedding

Same with this one, this is a dress for someone who wants to make an entrance! Buttons on the front, pink satin, wide but not too much, the straps on the shoulders … it has everything I like

When you are tired of wearing the same white jeans and t shirt again and again … voila, a beautiful white dress, with a deep slit but that  you can still wear to the office with grandma shoes (as in the lookbook) or in the evening with a pair of high-heeled sandals for a va-va-voom effect.
