Summer trend: the volant dress

How to style the hottest summer trend

One of the most romantic trend we have seen from these Spring/Summer collections has been – without any doubts – the volant dress. Just think about Valentino, Alexander McQueen or Simone Rocha – many designers have revisited this classic and timeless trend in different ways, new fabrics, prints and colors accordingly to the season. Either décolleté with oversized volant on long dresses or volants all over the dress that give movement to the silhouette, this is the key element of the season.

The stylish volant is definitely one of the most feminine details that exist and in its on way it is extremely versatile. Even if often used by haute couture with amazing details, it also can be matched with a more relaxed look. Either high heels or sandals, it’s perfect for a day meeting or a late afternoon party.

Forget about red carpets or galas, because volants are also made for a day at the beach or to run your daily errands during those hot summer days. For a more relaxed outfit sneakers or mules are the perfect match – comfortable and chic at the same time. Pink is definitely overtaking our closet this season as well, so let’s not forget an embellished straw bag!
