Thank goodness print dresses are back on the racks. Most designers will play with prints in their collection, but now is a fabulous time for those of us who love the ethos of Mary Katrantzou, Etro and Missioni.
Here’s 5 Fabulous Print Dresses
Floor length dresses are still popular for casual summer days. Wear this print maxi dress through the rest of the summer for a playful look that’s easy to style.
Traditionally in solid colors, even formal dresses are incorporating more pattern these days. The watercolor splashes on this sweetheart dress are very “on trend” as is that plunging neckline with the sheer mesh insert to keep it all together.
For those who adore the flapper look, I suggest you grab this tank dress that features both prints and fringe. While the idea of fringe is vintage inspired, the print and color choices reflect 2014. What a fun dress for your next party!
The geometric print on this ¾ sleeve shift surprises everyone when you turn around to reveal a scoop back. The juxtaposition of color, design and fearless style make this print dress irresistible.
Rounding out today’s list is a Jessica Simpson sweetheart print dress in violet. Carefully piecing makes this sundress body conscious but ever so conservative at the same time.

Winning a Nobel Prize would be an amazing feat. Can you imagine choosing a dress for that incredible red carpet affair? Elizabeth Blackburn and Carol Greider enjoyed such a delightful dilemma in 2009.
Blackburn, Greider and Jack Szostak shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work on how chromosomes are protected by telomeres. What recognition for decades of research. I love this interview where they talk about finding out about the award.
Of the 876 people who received the Nobel Prize between 2001 and 2013, 45 were women. I imagine that this number will increase dramatically in my lifetime. If you received a Nobel Prize, what would you wear to the award ceremony? Let us dream together….
The award ceremonies are held in Olso, Norway every December 10. I think this beaded turquoise Sherri Hill formal gown would be a fabulous shot of color on short winter days. The beautiful beaded neckline means you wouldn’t have to worry about jewelry, either.
Equally striking would be an Alyce cap sleeve beaded dress in fuchsia. A sequin lattice and rhinestones cover sheer panels for an opulent style.
I know some of you wouldn’t wear anything other than black. Here’a gorgeous Sherri Hill black beaded dress to accept your Nobel prize. Black and clear crystals sparkle on the bodice for a very dramatic look.
Then again, this award ceremony is in the winter… in Norway. I may need long sleeves. The sheer nude base on this Alyce beaded long sleeve formal dress may be just what I need to keep warm when I’m nervous about accepting the award.
An modern version of aqua would be an elegant choice for a red carpet award ceremony. Imagine wearing this Mon Cheri ruched gown as you accepted your prize.
Enough dreaming! We’ve got work to do before we choose that perfect red carpet dress. See you in the lab.Tags: award ceremony, Noble Prize winners, red carpet dresses, strapless evening gown
Teen Vogue has declared Kendall Jenner their new IT GIRL.
From reality show star to a runway model, Kendall is usually photographed on the red carpet, out at the club or promoting her sister’s clothing line.
Here’s 5 Gorgeous Formal Gowns with Kendall Jenner Style
Kendall wore a white mermaid dress to the 2014 Met Ball. Actually, is that her in this gorgeous white mermaid dress from Sherri Hill? With a beaded bodice, bare shoulders and rhinestones surrounding the keyhole cut out in the back, this gorgeous floor length gown is simply smashing!
Formal dressing doesn’t always require a floor length gown. Look how Shail K’s sequin dress uses black and white on the sleeves to create a beautiful, edgy look. Sequins are arranged in a broken glass pattern across this cocktail dress with a plunging v neckline.
Sheer, sexy, seductive describes Tarik Ediz’s open back dress. Ropes of rhinestones sewn onto a sheer body provide the base for this sexy blouson dress. Pastel mint green strikes the balance between soft and seductive for an absolutely amazing semi formal dress. Wear it if you dare!
At 5’10″, Kendall is already long, but she likes to emphasize her stature with long, lean looks. This black evening gown by Atria. With a long side slit, beaded v neckline and long sheer inserts at the sides, it adds curves but keeps a slender profile. The short train makes it perfect for red carpet events.
Most of us love a cheap club dress for nights out. The street style of this metallic mini dress could easily fit Kendall’s ethos. Priced less than $50, you’ll still have cash for the cover, looking as confident and party-ful as Teen Vogue’s IT GIRL. Go for it!

Everyone says that school starts in the fall. I’m not so sure about this.
Don’t you start school before September 21? If so, your first day of school is technically in the summer. The back to school season finishes just as fall kicks in. When I’m shopping for back to school dresses, I’m really looking for a summer dress that can transition into fall. Here’s
6 Cute Back to School Dresses
Available in both blue and pink, this cap sleeve dress transitions beautifully from summer fun to fall street style. The wide waist band highlights your hourglass figure and the flared skirt can minimize your hips. Dress it up or wear it with Tom’s, this back to school dress does it all for less than $50.
This cute red dress even has pockets! Cap sleeves, a jewel neckline and a gently gathered skirt create a fun casual dress that can easily head to school on 80F or 58F degree days.
I know some of you can’t resist black and white. I’d recommend a tank dress that’s elegant yet certainly appropriate for class. Is it lace? Is it print? This black print sleeveless dress creates a beautiful illusion.
Use a navy blouson dress as a background for back to school style. You can push up the sleeves for the first day of school. Opportunities to accessorize this scoop neck dress are pretty fine. Just add a dash of your personality.
It might be too warm for the first day of school, but I’d be wiling to risk it for this French Connection striped dress. Never fear, cooler days are on the horizon.
