Dressed for Summer

The hottest dresses for Summer 2017

The best parts of summer are the warm, balmy evenings. The warm air is so inviting and begs for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are on a sizzling date or hitting the clubs this summer, turn up the heat with these hot dresses for sexy summer nights.

The Bandage Dress
When you think of the provocative celebrities on the red carpet, you will often see them wearing a bandage dress. The name bandage dress might make you think of a mummy, and while the concept is similar, it is anything but scary. A bandage dress is a tight fitting dress made with a thick, stretchy fabric - usually a combination of rayon, nylon and spandex - that looks like it is wrapped around your body in layers. Bandage dresses define your curves and show off your figure. Don’t mistake this for a bodycon dress, which is flattering and tailored, but traces your curves instead of hugging them. This summer, try a bandage dress in a rose gold or other metallic fabric. Go for a mini dress that hits just above the knee with long sleeves for a sexy, yet classy combination. Finish with a fragrance like JAFRA’s Double Nature Glam, pair it with your favorite strappy heels, and watch heads turn all night long!

Summer Maxi Dresses
For those of you who want to feel sexy but are a little more conservative, the high-low maxi dress should be your go-to outfit! These on-trend dresses have a mini dress as a base with a longer fabric overlay that skims the floor. Don’t forget to top things off with a refreshing, yet fascinating fragrance like JAFRA’s Double Nature Crazy. A more daring summer maxi trend is the double slit, so you can show off your stems when you want to and conceal them when you don’t. 

The Fit & Flare Halter
One of the most sexy and iconic movie scenes in history is Marilyn Monroe wearing a white halter dress when the wind from a subway car suggestively blows her dress above her knees through the grate beneath her. Since that scene, the halter dress has become a symbol of summer sexiness. Choose this style to lift and define your bust while showing off your back and arms. Make it modern by choosing a shorter style to flaunt your legs. Complete your look with a hot scent like JAFRA’s Double Nature Sexy and watch the temperature soar!
