By |   July - 16 - 2009

Summer is one of those times when it’s hard to figure out what to wear. You want to look good, you want to be comfortable, and you want to fit in so how do you do all of those things? There are five different dresses that are hot this summer and if you have one in each style you should be able to dress appropriately for any situation and look incredible while doing it.

Roselyn Sanchez Maxi Dress

The maxi dress started its rise to popularity last year and is suddenly the dress for all occasions. A casual maxi dress is perfect for the beach during the day and with a few accessories it’s also the perfect look for nighttime as well. Roselyn Sanchez looks incredible in her maxi dress above. Its casual enough for daywear and the length makes it a great dress for drinks and dinner at a romantic outdoor café.

 

Paris Hilton Floral Dress

Paris Hilton is a lot of things, many of them unflattering, but the gal does know how to dress and the floral dress she’s wearing is a great summer fashion statement. Flowers just scream summer and by pairing the printed fabric with a short floaty dress you get a look that’s delicate, pretty and perfect for summer.

 

Mischa Barton Tiered Dress

Mischa Barton’s tiered dress is really awful, it’s the worst example of this trend. But if you select a cute and flirty tiered dress you’ll look incredible. The light layers are airy and give the illusion of coolness on hot days while they also serve to hide those little imperfections that  you’d strap down under a sweaty pair of Spanx in a different dress.

Rachel Bilson T-Shirt Dress

Rachel Bilson knows how to add those touches to a t-shirt dress turning it from a dress that looks like pajamas to a trendy fashion statement. This look isn’t great for a formal affair obviously but works well for cookouts and casual daywear.

 

Jessica Alba Bare Shoulders

Another staple summer fashion look is the bare shoulder dress. Whether you go for a spaghetti strap look or strapless, show off that summer tan (albeit a self tanner concoction) and look stylish and sexy no matter what the summer event.
