This week I visited one of my FAVE Melbourne Boutiques, TO THE MAX, on Lygon Street in Carlton. The gorgeous girls there helped me play dress-ups and choose my three fave looks for the silly summer season! I have chosen three very different styles to ensure I have something for everyone. Below I have listed what I am wearing, what body shape this style is suited to and how to style it - enjoy >

STYLING TIPS > LOOK ONE (Alice McCall White Sea Maxi): This stunning maxi dress is ideal for a formal occasion or a dressy event (wedding, function, launch/event). The cut of this dress is quite exquisite and extremely flattering, which I didn't assume when I saw it on the hanger. I would definitely style this dress with a pair of very simple nude strappy shoes as the neck is the true feature. Hair up in a messy bun or pulled to one side would be ideal to showcase the intricate neck design. I would also keep accessories to a minimum - smalls studs of a simple drop earring, maybe one bangle (silver or gold) and I wouldn't introduce another colour. The effortless elegance of this dress speaks for itself - keep it very simple.
 LOOK TWO (Shona Joy Casblanca Tank Dress): This cool but girlie tank dress is the perfect summer day-to-night look. The simple cut is flattering on all body shapes and can be drawn in with a belt to create more of a waistline if desired. What I love about the tank/shift dress is how effortless and chic these look. You literally throw it on and you're ready! Style this with flat sandals, wedges or for a smart-casual look, some closed-toe points and a blazer. This is also extremely versatile for hair options - lose beach hair, messy bun or even a pony tail would look great.
 LOOK THREE (Shona Joy Mirage Playsuit): Finally, the uber cute baby blue/teal playsuit by Shona Joy! I literally want to sleep in this, it is beyond amazing! This playsuit is double lined and hides any bits you don't want to the world to see ;) The shoe string straps and V-neck cut are extremely flattering - both to small and medium-large breasted women. While you might think to style this with a thin belt, I wouldn't. The textured material and tailored cut of this playsuit create a beautiful silhouette and flatters you in all the right places. I am a curvy girl and was hesitant when I saw this piece, however, the quality and cut really do create a lovely shape. This is also a casual day-to-night outfit, pairing it with flat sandals during the day and wedge or strappy heels at night for a bit more glam. Keep the accessories to a minimum, the material is a standout and should not be challenged!
Happy shopping and I hope you've taken away some useful summer styling tips - SJ.
