About Our Sundresses

As your summer invites pile up, the need for new dresses increases. Closet52 is here for you. Enter: the sundress. This dress dares to show a little more skin in a fun and flirty way. They are mostly long and flowy, but not all, you’ll find a few at the knee or above. They usually have wispy shoulder straps, if any. They are known to be made in the lightest weight fabrics that don’t cling. Their main mantra is to stay true to cool, comfortable and deliciously soft designs.

Sundresses come in various styles, and you should have a few in your wardrobe rotation. They pack a punch with flattering, feminine style. Some are fitted through the bodice, others are A-lines, which are loose from neckline to hemline. You’ll find ruffles and pleats, florals and solids but, by definition from the fashion Gods, they are sleeveless and sometimes backless, too.

Many women have a little black dress (LBD) they covet, because it can be worn often, at so many different events. But that changes in the summertime, when many switch it out for the white sundress. It’s favored for casual times like vacations, picnics, brunches, barbeques, and yes, even going into the office paired with a chic shrug or blazer (when a corporate dress code is to be followed.)

Sandals are the usual choice to finish the look, whether with heels or flat, the look is impeccable. But sneakers are making a pitch to replace them with their casual, cool vibe that everyone’s craving lately. And for this season, retro kicks are making a comeback. What an incredible fashion statement you’d make wearing a classic sundress with an unconventional old-school sneaker!

The accessory de rigueur for the sundress are sunglasses, frequently called sunnies. Why? Because you find yourself mostly outdoors. Yes, jewelry is always welcome and wearing bold statement jewelry or small and dainty pieces depend on the dress, but for the coolest look around, sunnies are the required.

Take a look at our offerings at Closet52 and you’ll realize how indispensable the sundress is. And you’ll realize how versatile it is too. By laying a long-sleeve tee or blouse beneath, you extend its life by boldly wearing it into the early days of fall. How can you resist?
