Dresses and shoes this summer - whats hot ?


We can expect a stylish and fabulous summer this year. Lots of fashion options have been presented by many designers around the world, so there should be something for every woman that will make them look sexy and fashionable in the latest hot shoes and dresses.
This summer trends range from long shimmering gowns to airy floral-printed swirling dresses and high-heeled shoes in bright colors.
Following are the key trends you need to follow!!

Colors and Patterns

Bright colors are still very much in fashion, and this summer’s dresses will be mint-green, orange and yellow. Floral prints are in most fashion magazines this season, and we love them; whether they are paired with other colors, are soft and pastel or bold and vivid; flowers are very much in demand.

Dress Lengths

You will find the airy maxi dress in fabrics like taffeta, chiffon and organza mostly everywhere this summer. Many designers have shown us maxi dresses in layered leopard and polka dot prints or multi-layered prints inspired by scarves. But despite the resurgence of the maxi-dress, mini dresses are also still popular and fashionable.Wear bright vivid designs on your mini dresses. Midi dresses in softer hues  looks fabulous on a warm summer day.

Lace and Peplum

One thing that has never really gone out of fashion is lace. This time they are more delicate and softer than they have been before.  When it comes to casual and evening dresses, peplums have made a drastic reappearance .

                                                  Styles and Shoe Trends

The trendsetter this summer is the asymmetrical hemlines, both in coats and tops as well as in dresses, so this trend will be seen almost everywhere.
High heels have been in fashion for a long time now and can still be called chic and trendy. Pointed metallic shoes in bright colors are the latest craze among fashion conscious women. Shiny and shimmery shoes will also be a “must” to make your outfit complete.
