Dear Fashion Readers:
I love the summer months – they are a fantastic opportunity to recharge and travel. After a long winter, I am sure you harbor the same feelings. The freezing rain or snow made the drives to and from work during the early morning hours even more difficult. Then there are the long days and the endless amount of paperwork. And the meetings you must attend! That’s why I am definite that you have a favorite vacation spot – a place for the family to enjoy quality time or for you and your beloved to take a romantic adventure.
“But I have nothing to wear,” you say. Look no further, dear fashion readers. Lulus, an online boutique, has a beautiful attire collection for every season and every occasion. Here are six summer suggestions from their website that you might consider. All photos presented here come from www.lulus.com.
The attractive features of the “Floating Through Flowers Multi Floral Two-Piece Midi Dress” include amendable spaghetti straps, chiffon fabric, and a divine flower pattern (see the photo below). Its two-piece design can provide you with a graceful look. “I have been wanting,” writes customer Michele G., “to try a two-piece dress for a while. This was perfect and elegant!” Janine T. enthusiastically agrees: “I took a risk on this, and it totally paid off. I love it and can’t wait to wear it! Surprisingly flattering on a less than perfect body.”
Or how about this exquisite “Over and Over Sage Green Ribbed Drawstring Ruched Bodycon Dress” (see photo below)? It comes in an assortment of colors, and its laudable use of ribbed knitting is worth noting. The drawstrings on both sides of the dress provide a very cool “ruching effect.” Customer reviews for this piece have an upbeat tone. Marina P., for example, writes: “This dress is nice! Super cute! It’s a thicker material and squeezes you in. Love it!” Carolina R readily observes: “Very cute dress perfect fit fabric soft I like how the way they fit me.”
If you want something serene, I suggest the “Coolest Mood Pink and Green Striped Color Button Up Top” (see photo below). The green and pink colors will add a delightful tone to the rest of your ensemble. For something more formal, I recommend this enchanting “Lisa Marie Black Embroidered Top” (see photo below). The beauty of the embroidery and the mesh fabric is challenging to describe. Its ineffability is part of the mystery of it all. However, customer Paula A does an excellent job explaining the “Lisa Marie” shirt: “This too is even prettier in person! So feminine and the lace on the sleeves is super soft. So pretty!!!” Elizabeth A. also notes: “I purchased this shirt some time ago and it has held up. Honestly, it is great quality, and it is a beautiful shirt. I receive many compliments whenever I wear it. Please get it in white as well.”
For those planning a romantic weekend, I suggest this alluring “Sea You Later Red Crinkle Keyhole Bandeau Bikini Top” (see photo below). Its bandeau design will bring out your sensual qualities. Add this “Cute in the Cabana Ivory Crochet Swim Cover-Up” (see photo below) to your summer getaway wardrobe. This dress, which features an open-back design, is perfect to bring out your attractiveness. Seana L., who wrote on the customer feedback page, happily writes: “I love this coverup. The quality is great, and I got so many compliments on it! I want more in other colors. It’s very flattering.” Alison L. also notes: “Beautiful bathing suit cover-up! The color and fit are perfect! It looked so lovely in our photos. I definitely recommend.”
I plan to write more about Lulus for the upcoming autumn and winter seasons. In the meantime, I hope you will visit the Lulus website and choose what is best for your summer getaway.
