When it comes to summer dresses, we often think of florals, pastels, and bright colors. But for summer 2020, Ted Baker has shown us that you can be just as feminine and gorgeous in a dark colored or a dark printed summer dress, as you´d be in a bright print one.
What I love about these dresses is the elegance. Whether it´s a long dress, a midi or a mini, the elegance they exude is undeniable. You can easily dress up these frocks with heels, or down with ankle booties.
1. Snake print midi dress
This snake print dress tops the list because it´s my favorite in the collection. I really like the princess-y glamor of it … the details in the sleeves, the bodice, the snake print, and the princess cut midi hem. You can either tap the femininity of this dress with sexy stilletos, or toughen it up with some motorcycle jacket and black, leather booties.
2. Masquerade pleated maxi dress
So stellar is the look that you can quickly tell this isn´t your every day look but rather, it´s for your next formal event. The long skirt is styled with pretty pleats all around, while the top is styled with short flounce sleeves and a subtle open back.
3. Striped maxi dress
This dark blue striped maxi dress is a head-turner. My favorite feature are the side slits, which are oh-so-sexy! The accent spahetti straps and belt breaks the dark monotone, making it a perfect day to night dress … literally from the office to your date.
You simply have to layer over a smart jacket for an office look, and then swap the formal shoes to some killer snake print booties for an effortless evening look.
4. Printed bodycon dress
A very smart bodycon dress for the office, you only need to throw over it a white long jacket and finish up with some pointed-toe, low vamped high heels, for a look that conquers the board room.
5. Sleeveless dip hem midi dress
A revamp of the high-low hem, this dip hem midi dress is perfect for days when you need a casual-smart look that makes you look put-together yet effortless.
6. Masquerade midi dress
This dress looks very comfy to me. It looks intriguing when styled with some black accessories and high heeled boots, but I`m pretty sure I would wear this dress with some sexy flat sandals, if not some cute flip flops.
7. Navy Print wrap dress
If wrap dresses flatter your shape, you may have a a few of it in your closet already. I will make a wild guess that most of your wrap dresses are of solid color. But this summer, why not add some mystery to your wardrobe by opting for this super versatile wrap dress in dark and mysterious geometric shape print?
8. Stripe detail mockable dress
You can go leggy and casual yet still look so polished. There´s a clear statement of sophistication in this dress, which combines sporty and stylish elements. Perfect for sports loving women.
Now tell me … what do you think of these dark-themed yet utterly sophisticated summer dresses? Which style would you love to add to your summer 2020 wardrobe?
