Ah summer, one of the most romantic seasons of the year, don’t you think? There’s just something about lazy afternoons, with rays of warm sunshine casting an ethereal glow in its wake, that makes the hour feel extra magical.
I’m not the only one who thinks so because summer is also the season of occasions, from afternoon garden parties, to graduations, to engagement parties and who could forget weddings?
I always like to be prepared for any occasion, which is why I tend to keep a variety of dresses in my wardrobe so I’ll have the perfect outfit for any celebration.
Of course, wearing white to engagement parties and weddings is a big no-no, but for other occasions, I would definitely opt for a flowing white dress (or one in a pastel color) like this one because I just love how soft, feminine, and romantic it looks.
I’m a minimalist and tend to veer away from excessive florals or patterns, which is why I fell in love with OUSHANG’s beautiful white lace chiffon dress.
The designer behind OUSHANG is Melissa, an international fashion designer who specializes in couture-themed fashion trends, featuring elegant and retro styles and inspirations.
I was able to find her lovely work through StyleWe, a trendy online fashion platform that features independent fashion designers in hopes of providing shoppers with original, high quality, and exclusive pieces.
On StyleWe, there are many designers like Melissa who offer beautiful, haute-couture inspired pieces, and the best part of it all is its accessibility for everyone, including you and me.
The boutique serves as a platform that connects designers and consumers by offering them a personal and intimate way to find exclusive finds.
With layers of ruffled skirts that create a high-low cut, the dress fans out a little more dramatically without being too over-the-top, and the silhouette that’s created is so feminine and almost princess-like, don’t you think?
