FashionVacation Dresses: The Two Colors You HAVE to Pack

With summer on the horizon, long weekends and tropical getaways are all we can think about. Nothing says vacation mode like some of summers hottest hues. Two shades that we’re particularly loving for vacation dresses are beautiful blues and soothing yellows. Whether you’re island hopping in Greece, or laying low stateside, we have the perfect selection of vacation dresses in each summer shade.

Blue Dresses

Into the blue

Shades of blue call to mind beautiful oceans and tropical back drops which makes it the perfect hue to don while exploring new destinations this vacation season.  Mix it up with different prints with dresses like our Field Day Navy Blue Print Maxi Dress, our Sunday Morning Blue Tie-Dye Wrap Maxi Dress or the Always and Forever Blue Floral Print Lace-Up High-Low Dress. Looking for a more classic look? Our Transatlantic Voyage Blue and Ivory Striped Midi Dress takes the off-the-shoulder trend and pairs it with chic blue and ivory stripes for a timeless look. Want to make a statement without a printed fabric? Step out in our wow-worthy Magical Movement Periwinkle Blue Wrap Maxi Dress for your next vacation.

Yellow Dresses

Hello, yellow

One of the most-loved hues this season will instantly brighten up your vacation look! From softer shades to golden tones, we have a serious color crush on yellow this season. With temperatures rising, we’re all about breezy silhouettes that will keep us cool this summer. Choose a flattering trapeze shape like our Tupelo Honey Yellow Dress or stay fresh in a shift silhouette like the Sugar Town Print Dress or the Hello Sunshine Yellow Off-the-Shoulder Dress. Take this hue to the next level and add a sultry maxi dress to your packing list. Our Marisha Golden Yellow Halter Maxi has a wrap style bodice, finishing off the look with a tying sash belt. Add a little glamour to your look with the Elevate Mustard Yellow Embroidered Maxi Dress, which features shiny embroidered stripes that flow from crisscrossing straps into a princess-seamed triangle bodice.

GeneralModel Moment: Anna Herrin

Model Moment: Anna Herrin needs a vacation

If you’ve ever shopped at Lulus, it’s impossible not to have seen the gorgeous Anna Herrin modeling everything from dresses to denim, sweaters to swimwear. Based on how often this babe is on the website, it’s fairly obvious how much we love Anna; she’s practically family. Not only is she the walking definition of #goals, she is one of the most down to earth people we have ever met. Spend a day with her in the studio and she will have you cracking up and slightly jealous of just how cool she is. For you to get to know (and love) her like we do, we sat down to sushi for a quick little Q&A:

Use 3 emoji’s to describe yourself:

If you could trade closets with any musician, who would it be?

2002 Britney Spears, mixed with Jimi Hendrix. I am not cool enough to go full Jimi, so I had to add in a dash of Britney to keep it realistic.

Model Moment: Anna Herrin lays on the beach

What was the last thing you binge watched?

The OA, I basically just wanted to watch it long enough to learn the dance they do in it. I was actually in New York and saw the main doctor in the series on the corner, and was like, “This is my moment, this is my time to break out into The OA dance!” But I didn’t know it.

Model Moment: Anna Herrin is born with it

If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?

Can I bring a person to talk to? I would go insane. Okay, I would bring an ear, just someone who would listen. Like a Wilson with ears. I feel like on Survivor they always want a lighter, so the survivalist in me would bring that. And sunscreen. I want to make sure I don’t get sun damage on my island, haha.

What’s the coolest experience you’ve had modeling?

I recently got to go to Tahiti, where I got to stay in these awesome bungalows on the ocean. So I basically had my own private ocean overlooking these mountains, which was incredible. It was basically like going on a honeymoon by myself for work. And I got to swim with both sharks and stingrays, which was so amazing.

Which Spice Girl are you?

I have to be honest, I wasn’t even cool enough to like the Spice Girls as a kid, it’s more of a recent thing. But one time at camp, I pretended to know about them, and I was picked to be Scary Spice. But deep down I wanted to be Posh Spice.

Thanks, Anna, for sharing a little bit about yourself! You’ll always be our Posh.

We’ll be sharing more Model Moments in the future, giving you behind-the-scenes access to the glam (and sometimes not-so-glam) model life. If you have any questions you’d like us to ask, tell us in the comments!
