1. The Mesh, Cutout Dress
If you love to show a bit of skin then this is the dress for you. Daring lasses everywhere are beyond obsessed with mesh cutouts and celebs like Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox have been spotted wearing sexy mesh dresses on the red carpet. But be warned, these dresses aren’t for the faint-hearted! Pair your dress with a pair of killer high heels a get ready to paint the town red.
We love this Amber High Neck Dress from AdoreThis.co.za. This stunning high neck, short sleeve dress with mesh cutouts and back zipper is perfect for ladies who want to turn heads. Click here to buy it for R600 now!
2. The Scuba Dress
These summer frocks take inspiration from a quintessential piece of summer sportswear – the wetsuit. Of course, we think scuba gear looks so much better in the form of a body-con dress. This trend is defined by body-skimming and hip-hugging fabrics as well as a signature high neckline and above the knee silhouette. If you love to show off your toned physique without looking too girly or flirty then this is the dress for you!
We love the Color Block Scuba Dress from AdoreThis.co.za. The long sleeve scuba dress with white side panels and zip detail is a must-have for any sport-obsessed lass who wants to turn heads. Click here to get it for R300 now.
3. The Side Panel Dress
These miracle dresses are the way to go for ladies with curves. The subtle panels on the side create a quick illusion by following your curves, making you look slimmer and taller with no effort at all. Wear this trend with minimal jewelry or accessories as you don’t want to bulk up the look – just add a pair of high heels and statement earrings and you’re good to go.
4. The Little Black Dress
5. The Pleated Leather Skirt
Ok, so this one isn’t exactly a dress but it’s too cute not to include! These high-waist pleated skirts offer a nod to the 70s and early 80s and are great for ladies who want to show off their edgy side. Celebs like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have all been spotted sporting this trend so take a page from their style book and spice up your look this spring. Pair it with a simple T-shirt and sneakers for a laid-back look like Rihanna or go glam in high heels and a printed sheer blouse like Kim K.
