Along with the color yellow (see post here), red has been a big summer favorite. When I saw this red summer dress at H&M, I instantly fell in love. It reminded me of what the “it” girls wore in the 90s. I was too young to wear anything like it quite yet but always was in awe by how cool the ribbed jersey cotton dresses were. I also remember being enamored by the tiny ruffled detailings when I was a kid. So when I saw that this dress combined all my favorite essential 90s style picks, I had to get it.
Red Hot Summer Dress
Red summer dresses are fun to wear. They are bright, vibrant, and they show off your tan! What more could you ask for? This dress, in particular, the cut is very sultry. It is the perfect going out dress, but I wanted to turn it into a perfect day time look as well. I really love the length of the dress had how flattering it is. I chose to just throw a casual Tee shirt over the dress to tone down the night time glam. My Tee shirt is from Boohoo that I bought it years ago, but found similar other options that I linked below! You can use any vintage Tee or loose fitted top to recreate this look.
I then twisted the bottom hem into a knot and tucked it underneath securely. I threw on a really comfy pair of sliders from Aldo to complete this casual look. I found these sliders that look similar and are cheaper, plus have a slightly better customer review.
