Cassandra is summer ready in our yellow and nude romper with trendy cat eye sunnies, and a white leather purse. This lacy and adorable romper gives the illusion of a perfect summer dress with plunging neckline and fluttery sleeves.

When you know you’ll be out sight seeing all afternoon, our Rollas daisy print sundress has a flattering fit that is the ideal blend of style and comfort. Lauren Crowe pairs the print with a sleek bag and simple jewelry, perfect for touring Rome.

When you find the perfect summer patio, make sure you’re wearing one of our favorite beachy numbers of the season. Nichole Ciotti hangs beach side in Turks and Caicos, wearing bold white and blue stripes, along with lace up detailing.

We’re all about the dresses with sneakers trend, and Payton pulls it off flawlessly. We love how she paired our tropical print Amuse Society dress with our mauve velvet sneakers, combining two of our loves: tropical prints and velvet!

Two piece sets just might be the most versatile items to add your wardrobe, while also being super travel friendly! Create an adorable summer outfit by pairing sets together like Sky, or mix and match with separates to make the most of your set.

Jourdan pairs our floral white sundress with a studded bag, dainty accessories, and a summer-friendly top knot. Jourdan’s giving us major OOTD inspo and showing us an outfit definitely worth recreating!

BeautyBoho Braid Tutorial

Boho Braid

When the temperatures rise, there is nothing better than a chic boho braid to keep cool! This season, we are even more excited to incorporate one of our favorite 2017 trends into our boho braids, hair rings! These chic hair accessories shimmer and shine in the summer sun and we just had to try the look for ourselves. Check out our braid tutorial in the steps below to create your own boho braid using celestial hair rings!

Step 1 & 2

1) Start with hair down and loose in a center part. Hair can be straight, wavy or curly depending on your preference. Part hair 1″ back from the hairline along the center part and then diagonally back towards the top of the ear. Clip hair that is not being braided from underneath so it is out of the way.
2) Dutch braid (basically an inside out French braid) hair away from the center part, down towards the top of the ear. Finish braiding to the ends of the hair and secure with a clear elastic.

Boho Braid

Step 3 & 4

3) Remove the clip from underneath the hair and use bobby pins to secure the braid over the hair toward the back of the head.
4) Pull out some wispy pieces along the hairline and loosen the braid for a boho look. Slightly bend star rings to open and place along the braid, tightening to close the rings. Finish with hairspray or surf spray as necessary.

What to Wear to a Backyard BBQ

If you’re keeping it casual this year and attending a backyard BBQ, we suggest going with a off-the-shoulder dress with a shift silhouette to keep you cool on what is sure to be a hot summer day. Our Sweet Treat Off-the-Shoulder Dress, available in white and red, is just what you need for an afternoon outside! While walking on the grass, stay on-trend and lace yourself up into the Jenay Black Lace-Up Espadrille Platforms! The low, block heel, will keep you comfortable (and looking cute!) until the fireworks are finished. Complete your #ootd with some cute sunnies, a straw hat and a printed bandana for a festive and chic 4th of July look!

FashionSummer Essential: The White Dress

It’s officially summer! Although temperatures have been rising and nights have been getting longer for weeks now, our calendars tell us it’s officially time to celebrate one of the best times of the year. Make sure you dress the part with a classic summer staple…white dresses!  See how our favorite Lulus babes styled some of our beloved white dresses for light, breezy summer outfits.

White Dress Round-Up: theluxilook

We loved how Amy styled an off-the-shoulder shift dress. She spiced up her white dress with rose gold, Lucite heeled mules and a basket bag…a perfect way to have your outfit suited for summer days or nights!

White Dress Round-Up: claudiagraziano

White with denim is another trend we can’t get enough of – especially when it looks this cute. Claudia perfectly dresses down one of our white bodycon dresses with a denim jacket and white sneakers, creating a blogger-approved daytime outfit definitely worth recreating!

White Dress Round-Up: orionvanessa

This eyelet lace detailed frock with lace up accents is nothing short of summertime chic, while also being flattering for all figures. Orion paired hers with a straight brimmed straw hat, giving off major Parisian vibes! Très chic!

White Dress Round-Up: laurencrowe88

Lauren’s white dress encompasses three of our favorite trends for the summer: the off-the-shoulder look, embroidery, AND statement sleeves. She amps up her outfit by adding tinted lenses and a bandana. What else could you want in an outfit?!

As any it-girl knows, pom poms are having a major moment! Take a tip from Sky and style a simple white maxi dress with all your pom pom accessories and a straw hat for the ultimate, ready-for-fun summer look.

White Dress Round-Up: kelsrfloyd

A touch of navy is always a good idea and an easy way to add a touch of classic color to a simple dress ! We love this lace-up ivory shift dress Kelsey wore for its feminine navy embroidery, giving it just the right amount of detail. Top it off with a woven tote and you’re ready for your next summer outing!

If we learned anything from our lovely Lulus ambassadors, it’s that a white dress is the perfect base for any kind of outfit. From casual and cute to elegant and timeless, white dresses will always be in style for a summer-chic look. We’d love to see how you beat the summer heat with your favorite white Lulus dress to make the perfect summer OOTD. Use #lovelulus to show us what outfits you create!
