Off the shoulder is 100% on trend right row, as are tunic dresses, halter top and shift dresses. From a vacation cruise to a stay at a resort to weddings or simply sunday fundays, floral prints will put you and your little girl right in season and on trend!
Feminine, Flirty and Fun Sun Dresses
Floral isn’t the only way to convey the flirty, fun and feminine energy of the spring and summer seasons. Lace dresses are also super popular this year. Lace is a surprisingly versatile fabric, creating dresses and looks that can be boho chic, almost gypsy-like, as well as delicate and soft. For the softer side of lace, empire waist dresses are an adorable silhouette that’s perfectly appropriate for younger girls and for women. It tends to give off a youthful, innocent aura.
Many cute outfits for girls this season also feature spring appropriate pastel colors. These softer hues can be matched by mommy for resort wear, church, communion and wedding looks, brunching outfits and so much more.
Tropical and Cuban Inspired Looks
The closer it gets to Summer, the more tropical fashion will get. Summer outfits this year in particular seem to be heading in a very caribbean direction - specifically to the island of Cuba. In light of recent events, Cuba has become a source of fascination and inspiration for many, including many big fashion brands. Perry Ellis’ Cubavera Spring 2017 Collection centered around Cuban inspired looks for men, showcased alongside tropical looks for women. Men’s button ups were modeled after the traditional guayaberas and are made of light, airy fabrics like linen. The women’s dresses seen in the collection’s shoot, provided by fashion brand Pineapple Clothing, featured plenty of tropical, floral prints with lots of color - very similar to the classic looks made famous by the island nation of Cuba. The looks made for perfect cruise clothing or caribbean inspired wedding themes.
