Madison's Top Picks

Posted by Madison Corry - Event and Community Relations Manager for Dress Up on May 28th 2020

Hey Dress Up Fam, it's Madison here! I'm popping in today to tell you all about the latest new arrivals that we are loving for spring and summer. It's a mix of easy-to-wear tops, feminine blouses, and of course, cute rompers and dresses! For a lot of these styles, I'm going to show you how I'd style them two different ways because we love versatility around here. So, let's do this! 

First up, we have the Charlotte Floral Off The Shoulder Blouse! This style was a RESTOCK, which around here rarely ever happens, so thats how you know this style is a fan favorite! I love this top because it is so easy to dress up or down, plus the comfort is absolutely incredible on this top. Sometimes I struggle with off-the-shoulder tops because they pop off your shoulder or aren't comfortable... this top is the exact opposite! It features an elastic band around the shoulder and waist band which is super comfortable, because of this the top won't move around all day or even bother you! I also love this floral print for spring. I am wearing a size large for comfort around the shoulders and styled it with denim shorts and flare jeans to show you work and weekend vibes! 

Since it's summer and we all basically need an entirely new wardrobe, I styled most of these new arrivals with the cutest platform espadrilles! I am super picky when it comes to shoes because you're going to want the right amount of comfort and style. With our Venice Platform Espadrilles you really do get the best of both worlds because they are so comfortable, but give you the trendy platform espadrille style that you're looking for for spring and summer! They come in four colors and are one of the most affordable espadrilles I've seen on the market! Make sure you grab them before they're sold out because our espadrilles always sell out SO FAST!

So now that you know about the cutest espadrilles EVER... Let's get back to clothes! One thing I always need for spring and summer is essentials! As I've been building out my wardrobe with essential pieces I know I'll have for years, having a good durable bodysuit that is comfortable and stretchy is a MUST! Plus, most of the ones online at ShopDressUp.com are $16 and under! I knew as soon as I saw the Erin Ribbed Knit Bodysuit I had to have it, in both colors because that's just how I am! Anyone else buy something they love in every color it comes in?! I love this bodysuit because it clasps on the bottom and is SO comfortable. The ribbed knit material gives it the most flattering look on the outside and feels so comfortable and breathable on the skin! I also love that it has a short sleeve, so you can dress it up and make it work appropriate or dress it down for your weekend plans. I'm wearing a medium here because it's that stretchy and comfortable! Did I mention it's only $14?! That's seriously unreal, the quality for the price. See how I styled both colors (black and white) down below! 

If you ever want to amp up any basic, like the Erin Ribbed Knit Bodysuit, try throwing on a hat or a cute headband! I love this one we just got in (the Ryder Polka Dot Headband) for a few reasons. First, I love that it is navy with neutral polka dots because you can style it so easy. Throw it on with denim and a neutral color top and you're good to go! Also, it comes with a functional bow. You can take it off or leave it on depending on the look you're going for! I love that it adds the perfect touch of fun to any outfit but it takes NO EFFORT! The best of both worlds if you're asking me! I'll show you how it looks in curled hair down below too, it looks so cute no matter how you style your hair!

If you're looking for the perfect easy-to-wear top that is so cute for spring and summer, but is so easy to style then you need the Kendall Swiss Dot Blouse. First off, it comes in three colors (a beautiful red, a feminine pink, and easy-to-wear white)! Swiss Dot is one of the top trends for 2020! Second, I L O V E the fit of this blouse! It seriously has the best fit, a longer short sleeve so it is work appropriate or even sometimes I just like having the extra coverage on my arms when hanging with friends or taking pictures. It's so flattering. It also has a semi-cropped fit that hits around the belly button, so you don't have to worry about front tucking it or even styling it because it already has the perfect fit! Easy to wear and super cute? Sign me up! Lastly, it has the best lightweight and breathable material. Especially with the summer heat, sometimes you just need something lightweight that you can wear no matter where your plans take you! I am wearing a size medium in this top since it has a slightly oversized fit. I also show you how you can dress it up or down depending on your plans!

Who else lives for a good kimono for spring? A kimono is one of my favorite things to purchase because you can wear them year round, style them as a swim cover up, or dress them up or down! Plus, I feel like they just look flattering on everyone. The one I'm loving right now is the Natalie Floral Maxi Kimono, it has everything you could possibly want in a kimono and has the most beautiful colors in it too! This trendy kimono is super lightweight and offers the most beautiful print! It is a maxi length which I love, I'm 5'3 and I can still wear it with sandals so it won't drag on you! This cute floral kimono has a tiered shape and short sleeves, so it looks so flattering on! Pair it with denim and a cute tank or even with a swim suit cover up. You can't go wrong either way! One feature I love that makes this kimono different is that it has a tie on the front. You can tie it so it doesn't flow out when you have on a swim suit and leave it open when you have it styled for work! I show you how it looks with the tie or untied next, I am wearing a large so it has a flowy and more loose fit! 

Lastly, I wanted to show you guys one of my favorite dresses we've ever gotten in! Who else loves a cute dress for spring and summer? I know I do and I'm OBSESSED with the Baileigh Floral Smocked Dress! This style is also a restock, so that's how you know its a customer favorite. I love it because it looks amazing and so flattering on all body types. This style is completely smocked and features a slight ruffle on the hemline of the dress. You can totally wear it as is with cute espadrilles and a fun hat for summer, or if you want to dress it down you can tie an oversized tee over it and pair it with sneakers! I styled it here with the Ultra Soft V-Neck Tee and the name speaks for itself! It is the best tee! I workout in them, sleep in them, dress them up, and wear them on my off days! They come in so many colors and are so cute to stock up on for spring! Here is how I styled the dress, I am wearing a size medium since it's supposed to have more of a tighter fit and it has amazing stretch!
