Dresses are quick and easy, but for Summer, they are also cool and comfortable. This year, designers are incorporatingrunway trends in subtle ways to give you wearable fashions.

Three of the biggest trends for Summer 2010 are nautical, floral prints, and denim. Echo brings us the One Shoulder Sailor Striped Dress. The dress is available in four colors, including red, which is quintessentially nautical. It is finished with a fun rope drawstring tie waist. Available at echodesign.com for $39.00.


Doie Designs is not only incorporating current trends; but they are doing it in a completely eco-friendly way. The Santa Monica Obi Dress inconspicuously incorporates a floral print by using it as an accent. This flattering dress delivers both style and comfort. Made with bamboo that is grown without pesticides, it’s a good choice for both you and the Earth. You can easily take this dress from day to night. Available at doiedesigns.com for $92.00.


For a bolder, yet very modern look, Classique has a fantastic floral strapless dress. The strapless style with wrap front is sexy, while the orange and pink tones evoke a true feeling of summer. Retails for about $60.00.


Denim is hot this season; and designer Rickie Freeman, of Teri Jon, has brought us the “LDD,” or the little denim dress. She also includes trendy ruffles to make the denim more demure for a look that’s fresh, flirty and feminine. Available at terijon.com for $210.00.
