3 Looks 1 Mesh Dress

Lately, I've seen this mesh dress everywhere. I first saw it on Kim Kardashian at the MTV VMA's and now in stores. I've seen in red, white and my personal favorite black. I thought it would be a great idea to show you how versatile this piece can be. I put together 3 looks styled completely differently.

Since its still summer, I thought a swimsuit look would be ideal. A mesh dress is one of my favorite layer pieces for a fun poolside outfit. You get the coverage you want but still get a little sneak to what's underneath.

A dress doesn't necessarily need to be worn as a dress. I paired this little number with a pair of distressed shorts. I accessorized this outfit with a double buckle belt, a wide fedora hat, and super tall platform heels. With these accessories and shorts this dress has a fun boho vibe.

Be a little daring and wear just your bra and high waited panties under the mesh dress. Layer a floral print duster to elevate the look. The little black dress never looked so edgy and sexy.

Colorful Dress

There are those days I put away my little black dress and put on a flirty colorful one. A dress with a pop of color brings out my girly side and this dress from Cali's Collections is just what I'm talking about. I love the Aztec print and adore the bell sleeve details. The colors are eye-catching and the off the shoulder design is one of my favorite trends this summer. 

Style Tip: Having trouble keeping that off the shoulder blouse or dress well, off the shoulder? Watch this video for a great trick to keep them in place.

The fabric is great for this summer heat- flowy and lightweight. This tribal print has boho written all over it. That's why a gold chain belt and round retro sunglasses is the perfect match to complete this boho look. I felt the dress was a little too long for me- I knotted the dress on the side to make it shorter. Pair of nude heels completes this outfit. I chose a neutral heel because the dress is the show stopper.

Velvet Dream

I know what you're thinking, velvet in the summer? Actually, these velvet bell bottoms from Authentic Glam are super comfy and soft. The fabric is lightweight- so they don't burn me up during this warm weather. 

I'm crushing hard on velvet. I've haven't worn velvet since my 5th grade graduation when I wore a velvet 2 piece matching top and skirt set. 15 years later velvet has made its way back to my closet in these fun retro inspired bell bottoms.

I paired a cami crop top and moto jacket with a pair of lace-up sandals, which made me feel like a 70's rock n' roll chick. I completed the look with round sunnies also from Authentic Glam. This edgy outfit is perfect for a music festival.

Bell Sleeves

It seems like lately my looks have a little bohemian element. Bare with me. I'm just in this boho kick. Festival season is in the air. Not only am I wearing boho everything but I love to wear my favorite pieces over and over again. Style wouldn't be fun without the challenge of wearing something over again and creating a completely different look.

Style Tip: Tuck in a flowy blouse for a better put together look and also to show off that figure.

I love this top so much I wanted to show you ladies another way to rock this bell sleeve blouse from Fashion to Figure. Last time you saw me paired this top with a floral skirt (here)- which created a little dressy and romantic look. Today's look is a bit more casual. By the way don't mess out on a good deal, this blouse is on sale! I wore this outfit when I went to go see the Voice. It was such a fun day. I had a great time! I got to see Christina Aguilera and Pharrell perform. This outfit was perfect- I was comfy, stylish but not too dressed up. Pairing this top with skinny jeans dressed down the blouse. A skinny scarf and rounds sunglasses completed this look. Here's a little secret, this scarf was actually a belt from some old pants. I thought it suited better as a scarf. What do you think?

Off the Shoulder

Warm weather is here and it’s time to bare those shoulders ladies. This year’s hottest trend has you giving people the cold-shoulder. This beautiful silhouette is very sexy yet adorable- it manages to show off the appropriate amount of skin. I love that this design is very flattering to any body type. This off the shoulder trend can be found on tops, bodysuits, and dresses. These designs give off that laid back, romantic, boho vibe for spring and summer.

Style Tip: Off the shoulder tops work perfectly paired with your favorite pair of jeans, shorts, and skirts for this warm season.

I feel summer ready in this pastel pink off the shoulder number from Forever 21+.  I paired this top with my favorite pair of jeans for a chic but casual look. These nude lace-up booties and silver toned jewelry was the perfect match to complete this outfit. This look has me feeling feminine and flirty.
