This look literally has it all. The stunning high-low design is not anything to bawk at, creating a sultry design that every woman loves. Aside from the high-low feature, she also sports a delicate off shoulder blue top that’s connected with an 80s belt at the waist. Together, this is a style that just won’t quit- and we are loving it.

Yes, tye dye is a style staple for summer; and it’s easily working its way into our hearts. Her tye dye dress may seem subtle, but there’s a large variety of tye dye designs to choose from. She opts for a simple blue swirl, but there’s more extravagant hues and patterns to suit everyone’s style with ease.

11. Carnival Stripe

@ madhavi__pandya

What can we say? Asymmetrical dresses have been popular for years and they won’t be going out of style anytime soon. That being said, we especially love the pairing of patterns, with a vivid design down below and a monotone color up top. The pairing is understated, yet beautiful.

What’s your favorite summer dress style?
