Flowy Summer Dresses and Shirts

Flowy summer dresses and shirts are really the ultimate comfort pieces for your summer wardrobe and are often the best style of clothing to throw in your suitcase for your fabulous beach vacation.  Flowing dresses and tops are by definition loose and potentially flared rather than straight or fitted styles.  In terms of dresses, perhaps the best examples of this style trend are maxi dresses.

One of our favorite maxi dress that is sophisticated and flowing simultaneously is the Rhetta Long Dress by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This maxi dress features a low cut scoop back which gives this maxi dress a dressier even sexy evening look.  Best of all this dress features a jersey cotton fabric which makes it versatile such that you could easily wear it for casual or daytime events as well.  This maxi dress features elbow length sleeves and an elegant fit which is a fabulous way to wear a flowing maxi dress.  This dress is currently available at Vintage Fringe in both black and malachite a teal blue color

Another great example of a flowing summer dress is the Sanni Short Sleeve Maxi Dress also by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This is another great casual long maxi dress which features a button-up neckline and a contrasting brown tie around the waist to make this a t shirt style long maxi dress.  The style of this dress makes it very distinctive and with the fitted style at the top of this dress gives it a more feminine, flirty look. This dress also by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer features a light jersey cotton fabric which makes it perfect for summer weather.  The belted tie in a contrasting brown fabric is a great way to break up an otherwise long straight maxi dress.  This dress also is available at Vintage Fringe in a gorgeous Jasper blue green color.

Finally, as a loose fitted flowing shirt option consider the Eugina Poet Sleeve Top.  Poet tops by nature are loose and also feature a gathered neckline.  The Eugina top by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer is no exception.  With contrasting cotton fabrics and textures on the sleeves and body of this top the Eugina top provides a deep scoop neck and loose fitted sleeves in comfortable, wearable cotton fabrics.  The top is also long and fits loosely at the waist so it isn’t a constrictive top.  Yet it still has shape and body and isn’t so loose that it looks baggy.  It is currently available at Vintage Fringe in White a perfect summer color.

These are only a few examples of great flowy summer dresses and shirts, but they each show that you can find great flowing statement pieces in either dresses or shirts while also finding pieces that are comfortable and easy to wear.  In short, each of these designer dresses or tops are pieces that are stylish while also being comfortable which is exactly what we love to find.
