Delicate, elegant, light, flowing, graceful, mysterious, yet bold, sexy, sensual, sophisticated, simple, colorful or flower prints - these are the words that better describe the trendy dresses for spring summer 2010. Without any doubt, this season can easily be declared the “dress season”.
Made from light airy fabrics, this season's dress expresses both femininity and sexuality, revealing too much and still not showing enough.
1. Long slit dress
Light, flowing fabrics and thigh-high splits exposing a tanned, bare leg. This is the hottest trend this summer when talking about dresses. Versace, Lanvin and Emilio Pucci created modern, sensual, bold, breathtaking dresses with splits for confident girls that love a sexy and uber-feminine look. The sensual detail is the side split reaching the top of the thigh. Fabrics are light and breezy, often transparent.
High heels and sandals are a must for these dresses, while the flats will only cancel the sensuality of the split.
2. One-shoulder dress
Even if this type of dress made a sensation in previous seasons, it still remained very popular and trendy for spring/summer 2010. Simple cuts, light airy fabrics and powerful, vivid colors that counterbalance their simplicity. Designers let one shoulder gracefully exposed, in a practical and sexy way.
3. Strapless dress
This season, designers like Versace, Yves Saint Laurent or Oscar de la Renta bet on one important element: the decollete. Strapless dresses in different colors, with or without prints, that reveal the beauty of a woman's neck and decollete are really hot this summer.
Belts are a great way to add some extra style and glam to your outfit. This season, belts come together with chic dresses. Burberry Prorsum, Oscar de la Renta or Giorgio Armani brought to their collections a wave of originality, pragmatism and elegance by adding delicate, colorful belts to their dresses.
5. Flower dresses
One trend is omnipresent in almost all fashion seasons, coming again to prove that fashion repeats itself: flower prints. Whether we refer to light dresses, long, single-shoulder dresses or simple dresses that can be easily worn at the office, or sexy dresses, one thing is for sure: flower prints are the ultimate and most wonderful way to express a woman's femininity and grace.
Don't forget about the layered dress that is a pretty strong trend this year even though we don't know if it's the best choice for summer heat.
If you choose to wear a simple dress without too much details, accessorize it with extraordinary shoes, XXL necklaces or a beautiful hat in a strong color.
The classic little black dress will always be in fashion and it works for every occasion, but make sure to find the appropriate accessories.
