It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. -Charles Dickens
Summer, a season of sunshine, voyages and bikinis. When I was little, I’ve always packed different outfits with their matching shoes for each day while traveling; however, after years passing by, I’ve found out that a simple and easy luggage can perfectly begin our journey.
The summer recently, I prefer to take some pieces of short dresses to be my daily outfit, especially with thin shoulder straps and the design of off-the-shoulder, even though they are in simplicity style, they can still easily bring out the a sense of beauty.
Since Coco Chanel introduced her first little black dress in 19 century, emancipated women form corsets and the heavy impression of the color black, LBD became the must-have in every woman’s wardrobe. But why can a piece of LBD could be the queen of classic style and high fashion; why could that black halter Givenchy dress could become the icon of Audrey Hepburn? Reasons are that you don’t need fancy accessories to decorate your LBD, it’s chic enough to just stay simple; wearing in the color of plain black, it could easily modify every kind of body shape. A piece of little black dress is just like Cinderella’s fairy Godmother, it gives us the source of confidence.
Every time when I’m on my vacation, what I mustn’t forget to bring is a piece of LBD. Its thin shoulder straps and soft fabric, pairing with a pair of white shoes, allows me to ease the uncomfortable feeling while transporting and leisurely across the streets. As for special occasion, just simply add a piece of wrap, and then it could transformed into a simple cocktail dress.
Turning back from the austere front is the design of a big cut-out and the cross straps, this is what I love the most about this LBD, whenever I walk pass by the street block, the dress will make me into the center of the sight line, will make the pedestrian couldn’t help but to turn their head to see my back design again.
But speaking of summer, it’s not enough only to be satisfied by the low profile of black, in this enchanting season, we’ll definitely need to show our beautiful and colorful outfits. The trend of sexy off-shoulder outfits still continues this year, it’s also perfect for long hot summer, especially with forest green, let the photos become much more refreshing.
Before, I’ve avoided buying outfits with thin shoulder straps, I was so afraid that this kind of design might enlarge the visual effect of my shoulder; nevertheless, after I purchased these two dresses, I discovered that if we choose those with looser straps and with a little bit flappier dress design, our body could be well modified, looks neat and delicate.
