It’s that time of year again, and your spring and summer calendar is filling up with invitations to weddings, graduations, spring teas, garden parties and of course, Easter. You’re feeling the pressure of what to wear. What are the trends? What do you invest in that will carry you through the season?

It may be easier finding the perfect spring and summer party dresses this year. The runways are a flourish with pastels, florals, longer, flowing skirts and figure flattering silhouettes. Arm coverage is always an issue and best addressed by making sure you include sheer shawls, shrugs or cocktail sweaters.

Trends to look for:

Florals – boldly embroidered, appliqued, or printed – they’re ALL good!

Color – pinks are plentiful and always flattering.  Yellow is a favorite.

Tea length is the “IT” length for skirts and dresses.

Fuller skirts are flattering and sexy – again.

Feminity rules this season. So tuck away those staid, boring suits and swing into action with brilliantly designed spring and summer party dresses.
