|My Secret Trick for Finding the Best Spring and Summer Dresses|
So, to preface, I'm going through a bit of a dress phase. In fact, I go through it every year when late winter hits, after I've been getting by on solely jeans, sweaters, and coats for months. But this year, it seems to be particularly aggressive, perhaps because I'm prepping for my early March wedding, and my wardrobe for the week of and honeymoon after will primarily consist of dresses. Ever since the New Year began, I've been stalking the new arrivals of e-tailers like Net-a-Porter, Matches Fashion, and Shopbop for the latest dresses for spring and summer to appear, and in doing so, I made a discovery. If you search for the word broderie, you'll be met with a plethora of beautiful broderie anglaise (French for "English embroidery") dresses. The Britannica definition calls it a form of "whitework embroidery in which round or oval holes are pierced in the material (such as cotton), and the cut edges then overcast; these holes, or eyelets, are grouped in a pattern that is further delineated by simple embroidery stitches on the surrounding material." In other words, start your spring and summer dress search with that term and you'll be met with lovelier options than you'll know what to do with. Or, just shop my picks below.
