If one dress style has defined the summer, it’s the floral ruffle/wrap dress – no doubt about that. It has been featured on every ‘it girl’ you can name, has cluttered all of our Instagram feeds, and is available on the high street and online. Style Station would definitely call this a trend. If you needed proof that trends can come from social media rather than the catwalks, then this dress is exactly that. The popularity began from being featured all over social feeds and celebrities, charming the majority of women with its vintage charm and girlyness. The dresses are timeless in our opinion. Paired with anything from sneakers to heels to boots, this dress will go with anything in your closet. Not to mention, it looks flattering on every body type which we adore. Diane Von Furstenberg was obviously the first to kick off this trend starting a while back, but Realisation Par has been all the rage recently and we give them the credit for sparking this trend once again. Realisation Par is everywhere right now and it’s probably because it’s made its way onto the bodies of our favorite influencers. Alexa Chung chose the label to ring in the New Year and Jessica Gomes, Sarah Ellen, and everyone in between regularly share snaps of the brand on their Instagram pages. Founded by 4th And Bleeker blogger Alexandra Spencer and Teale Talbot, the label’s point of difference is it creates individual pieces rather than collections. It fills the gaps in your wardrobe for those special pieces you never realized you were always missing. Similar dresses to these have been seen at Urban Outfitters, For Love and Lemons, Revolve, Reformation, ASOS, Instagram based brands, and much more.
