Summer Style: Day To Night


When it comes to outfits for those summer days and nights, the perfect “all day-er” can often be a little tricky to master. You want something that’s light and breathable to get you through the warmest parts of the day, and something that has enough material and looks great with other layers to shield you once the evening chill sets in. This year I’ve been a huge fan of maxi and midi dresses, as they fit the previously mentioned criteria, and look chich AF. Daytime: throw on a pair on sunnies and sandals and you’re good to go. By night: Make sure your jewellery has something statement to it and add a jacket and there’s no need to run home and change! Keep your sandals simple and comfortable and there’s no need to switch them up – because heels really are the devil and summer evenings are all about that carefree life, not blister plasters…

When it comes to midi and maxi dresses, ASOS are one of my favourites. There’s so much choice and so many different prints – so if you love one style, but not the print, there’s a good chance they’ll have it in a few different patterns or shades. Who doesn’t love having options? This summer I’m loving the ASOS Woven Wrap Maxi Maxi Beach dresses – the perfect slinky maxi but in a number of different colour ways. They work for both the beach and drinks at the bar and this red number combined with my new hair cut has an amazing Marilyn Monroe vibe that I love! I paired it with the ASOS Wide Flique Leather Sandals – the neutral tan shade grounds the bright colour of the dress and makes it slightly more casual and boho. Continuing with the more boho vibe I added the red ASOS Filigree Cord Bracelet – such a simple touch but it works so well – followed by the ASOS Hamsa Multirow Necklace in antique gold. I love the layered look of this piece and it works beautifully with the low neckline of the dress (if you’re more of a t-shirt and jeans girl then i’d highly recommend this with a low V neck to add a little more texture and detail!) 

And then we have the neutral and slightly nautical ASOS Beach Maxi Dress in Fibre Stripe. This one has a similar v shaped neckline, but depending on your height, this halter neck style leaves room to decide just how low the neckline sits! I paired the ASOS Hamsa Multirow Necklace in antique gold with this again, but a simple dainty choker (or a few layered up) would work perfectly. The dress is a slightly busier print so extra accessories aren’t necessarily needed, but the ASOS Semi Circle Fan Earrings add a simple statement and quickly pull the look together a little more. Though a little more casual in it’s design from the front, this dress has a gorgeous backless detail to it, which makes it a perfect transitional piece for summer evenings too. Keeping to my flats only rule, I threw on the ASOS Flery Leather Flat Sandals. Their pale pink tone works perfectly with the beachy neutral tones of the dress and of course, my ASOS Denim Jacket worked perfectly too.

And, as always, a basket bag always completes a summer outfit! ASOS have a great selection of basket bags and general summer bags which you can find in the shop section below!

Happy Summer Dressing!
