Last summer I was really into floral prints and well, sexy-ish dresses. I think I want to lay off the sexy and well look for cutesy dresses. I want flowy flowy dresses which are just loose and fun, I want tribal-ish printed dresses (I would love a maxi one but I've never tried to wear one and idk where I'd wear one), and I want white dresses with mid/high neckline with pretty embroideries and some peepholes/cut out designs would be pretty.
FLOWY DRESSES IN PASTELS: no need to accessorize much with this, I'd rather wear sandals/flipflops with them, maybe wedges too.
TRIBAL FLORAL PRINTS: I want this with those tribal bracelets and bangles as well!
WHITE DRESSES: I'm looking for one preferably with sleeves, and I'd tie my hair with a pretty rose ribbon :p
It's fucking hot in Manila so this is what's going in my wardrobe this summer: SHEER EMBROIDERED TOPS.
It provides minimal warmth and is really light. I don't suggest though that you go tacky and look like you're naked. Wear something inside if it's a little much. I'd stay away from darker colors especially black but I found a blue top that works. I like them in blush and nude colors cause I'm boring like that but it works. You could also play around with the color you wear inside the top itself, whatever pleases you really. Also it's really pretty dress up with hats, you could dress down with bed/beach hair or a messy side braid. Best paired with shorts. Skirts and jeans(this would probably look really cute with a high ponytail) work too BUT I'd dress down with the bottom.
Also don't forget to put on sunscreen, remember sheer fabric = sunlight passing right through it.
I guess Forever21 and Topshop would have plenty of these but I suggest you check out St. Francis Square and SM Dept. Store for bargains.
