Summer party season is in full swing and event dressing is easier when you know the summer party dress code and have a trendy dress that suits you.
Do you have a fashionable new dress? Experience has taught me that buying a cute day to night versatile dress before invitations arrive minimizes the anxiety related to party dressing.
Dressing for special occasions calls for more planning, I know. However buying dresses that can be worn on different occasions decreases your cost per wear.
Black and white is as big as 1970s style this summer. According to Glamour magazine it one of the most wearable trends for summer 2015.
The trend’s not groundbreaking, but black and white is everywhere. What makes this season’s take on the classic color combination interesting, though, are the various textures, patterns, and silhouettes.
For your next summer soiree choose a chic black and white dress and simply add accessories!
It was not hard for me to picture this Maje’s effortless ‘Riviera’ dress for my next warm-weather getaway and coming up party invitations.
The black and white geometrical print dress is cut from a thick jacquard-knit with a fit-and-flare silhouette that’s flattering for most figures. I wore it with simple sandals to a “beach chic” dress code party.
Do you find enigmatic party dress codes confusing? What is Dress summer soiree? or festive attire? beach chic? smart casual event? Anyway, if you ask me you can wear a fashionable dress to all of the above.
Dressy Casual Party code means wear a dress, or a skirt and dressy top, or dressy pants with a simple top, or even cool jeans and dressy top.
Summer Chic means “Keep it simple,” says InStyle’s Toby Tucker to nypost.com “You cannot go wrong with a great pair of shoes and an awesome dress that you probably spent too much money on – which means it will wear and travel well.”
For your hot summer night out, look in the summer sales of Nordstrom discounted dresses and Net-a-Porter for bargains.
I have chosen, except the one I am wearing, these four black and white versatile party dresses : 1. Belted Stripe Fit & Flare black and white Dress, 2. silk print dress by Diane von Furstenberg (40% off), 3. stripe shift dress by Kate Spade (also 40% off) 4. contrasting polka dot prints by Oscar de la Renta (50% off)
This season the little black party dress is black and white !
P.S. We went for the outfit post photo-shoot to Kolibithres, in Paros. A magical place known mainly for the turquoise water and the incredible rock formations.

Beautiful pictures! The dress looks perfect for a summer party, and I love the sandals 🙂
Gorgeous outfit!! Some dresses are versatile to such extent that their grace continues and revamps with time. It is one of those, you can have it anytime. Whether its a party or outing on the beach, looks cool. I think that attaining such attire really makes a cool and nice feeling without any hectic make-up. Its good for us to inculcate such things accordingly.
