Nothing says comfort and style like a maxi dress. Just ask celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Jessica Simpson who have all been spotted wearing these dresses.

They are multi-functional and can be thrown over a bikini or worn to grab lunch with friends. It’s the perfect summer day essential.Tip: Look for an empire waist to achieve that sexy hour-glass figure.
When the wedge sandals come out to play you know the summer is here to stay. Adding some height to a shoe is great but teetering around on heels is frustrating for you and your feet. Wedges are a comfortable option to give you that boost in inches without the blisters. Again, bright colors are key with this trend to give it that extra pop of flavor. Pair them with shorts or hey, that cute new maxi dress!
Lace has made its mark on the couture runways and is now making its way to the streets for Summer 2012. Pastels in blue, peach, and of course white are popular lace colors. The material is also lightweight to help cool you off on those sweaty summer days while still looking chic. Shorts, tops, skirts, and dresses have all been touched by a hint of lace this season. The effect is super girly and sweet with a vintage twist. Fuel your inner girly girl with a few lace items to soften up your wardrobe.
