Let’s talk Summer essentials for a bit shall we? One of my readers requested that I do a post on my Summer essentials and I thought that was such a great idea. I don’t want to focus too much on basics. But, unique pieces that stand out and make a statement even if it is just a white dress. This Zara white eyelet midi dress is a perfect example of a Summer essential piece turned up a notch. Let’s get into why!
I feel a white dress is good to have in your Summer wardrobe. But, let’s be real, often times you won’t reach for it as often because its white. This is why I feel like a white summer dress should not only be unique, but easy to launder so you can throw on and go!
I scored this Zara dress during their Summer sale and I’m so glad I did. The eyelet detail throughout this dress is stunning! It also has a high low hemline and a flowy A-line cut. These features or details makes the dress more fun and versatile to wear day or night. I decided to pair this dress with a cute belt for more shape and to dress it up a bit. What I love about this white eyelet midi dress, is that I can easily pair with flats, heels, or wedges. I can also wear it to brunch, shopping or a casual evening out.
Why an eyelet style dress?
Eyelet dresses are so good for summer because they typically made of breathable fabrics and are lightweight as well. Even though this one has a longer sleeve, I felt nice and cool in it on an 80 degree Summer morning. In any summer dress, try to find lightweight fabrics that you will reach for constantly and get a lot of wear. I’ve linked a few dupes that I think are great options for a unique eyelet dress. So be sure to check it out!
