Halter Style Done Right
Hello Guys & Dolls! How's everyone doing? Summer heat got ya down?
In Texas we are in the triple digit phase of summer, known as the Dog Days, and nothing beats the heat like a fabulous halter style sundress. Now, as far a sundresses go, there are TONS of places to buy great dresses but one of my favorite online shops for inexpensive dresses is Shein. She what you say?? Yes, SHEIN. Let me tell you why.
This specific halter style dress is so flattering and can be dressed up or down. Here, for my casual look, I've paired it with some flat sandals from Steve Madden or, for the more budget friendly pair, click HERE. Of course I've also added my favorite white hat, which is no longer available but I've linked a couple others that would be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe HERE and HERE.
The dress comes with a self tie matching belt, which is great for a casual look. Styled like this you are ready for a casual brunch, a date night movie, of even a day of shopping. It's simple, chic, and will keep you cool. And PS: this super cute bag from Amazon is PERFECT for summer gatherings like the lake, beach, or pool party.
Now, if you want to dress this gal up a bit, take off your self tie belt and add a rattan or bamboo belt like this one HERE which by the way, comes in 22 different buckle shapes and colors, so you're sure to find one that you can wear with several items in your closet.
I also added some heels to punch up the dressiness, and these are an old staple in my closet. They are my wedding shoes and I don't recall where on earth I bought them, but they are one of the favorites in my collection. I like pairing an ankle strap heel with this dress because of the length. The strap would draw attention to your ankle and give the illusion of height. So for a similar pair, This pair at Zappos is a good choice, or for a more budget friendly pair, check out THESE.
I really just love everything about this dress and the best part.....It's only $18.00!!! I know...RIGHT!!!
This specific color seems to be sold out but this navy color is fantastic and I think I like it even better than the beige one that I have. I may just need to add that to my closet as well!
There are also a couple of other dresses that are similar to this style like THIS ONE or even THIS ONE for all my print loving sisters out there. All of them are under $20.00 so you can get a couple to add to your summer wardrobe.
A couple of purchase hints for Shein: First, I am a size 6 in most things and on this site I order a medium and they fit great. Secondly, the shipping may take a bit longer than what you're used to so allow about 10 days for the dresses to get to you before you call in reinforcements.
Summer dresses that leave us cool, stylish, and oh-so-chic is always the right answer in my book and this halter style will take you right into fall with no problem. Simply add a ........you guessed it...BLAZER and a pair of boots and you are in fall fashion mode in no time.
Coming up soon I will be doing an entire blog about how to style your summer staples and make the fall ready with just a few different accessories added. Stay tuned!
Have a fabulous weekend my lovelies!
