Voluminous Dresses Go Green

It’s easier being green than you might at first think. Voluminous dresses in kelly green brighten up a summer day in the city. We love the sleeveless variety in long muumuu styles. It might take a moment to get used to feeling so free under all of that fabric.

Summer Plaid

Did you take our staycation idea and plan a picnic into your day? Opt for voluminous dresses in summertime plaids and cheery colors. We love full length styles with tiered hems and plenty of ruffles. Three-quarter length balloon sleeves also help balance an oversized dress. Add a bucket hat and your favorite straw basket filled with easy goodies and go!

Always Bet On.. Blue

Unless you find the perfect print (see above), we recommend sticking to a monochromatic color. White, green, black, and blue voluminous dresses are the most versatile. Create a fun balance between ultra-feminine and tomboy with your favorite pair of white sneakers. The end result is the easiest outfit you ever wore that took 2 seconds to put together. Effortless.

Baby Doll Comeback

The 90s has been making a major comeback with short hems and baby doll styles. Baby doll style voluminous dresses give you all the little girl character without the extra fabric. A shorter hem and puff shoulders makes a fun summer dress alternative for any vacation. Add summer slides in neutral colors to give extra focus to your newly tanned legs.

How We’re Doing White

There’s nothing quite like an oversized dress in plain white cotton. A major microtrend happening now is pairing white voluminous dresses with black boots. Opt for a pair that has a thick sole and keep your accessories super minimal. Drop waist hems are also back in popular demand along with those famed puff sleeves.

Neon Accents

Another way to stay on trend is by incorporating a little summer neon color. Black voluminous dresses look terrific with bright neon tennis shoes or purses. Talk about eye-catching—oversized fashion is still new and a bright flash of color works in tandem to turn heads.

Romp + Recreate

The biggest (pun intended) thing to keep in mind with this style is that it is all about having F U N. Anyone who takes themselves overly seriously shouldn’t mess around with voluminous dresses. They are easy for staying in and are attention-grabbers when going out. That’s what we call “the best of both worlds”.
