Dresses are a staple in every Texas girl’s wardrobe. They are so versatile and make it easy to look polished, even in the Dallas heat! My favorite dress silhouette is by far the fit-and-flare; the cinched waist is feminine and flattering on any body type. I’ve been excited about the selection that I’ve been seeing. More and more stores are carrying the fit-and-flare “trend” (although I would consider it a classic fit), so it is easy to find the perfect dress for any occasion!
Keep it comfy and casual with cotton or chiffon, and pair with a belt and sandals.
Here at SMU, we don’t tailgate; we boulevard. Autumn afternoons on Bishop Boulevard before football games are the perfect time to show off your girly, Southern style in dresses and cowboy boots. Add aviators to block the Texas sun, and a bow belt for a cute detail!
A full skirt allows for more movement than most formfitting cocktail dresses do, which is perfect for a night of dancing. Balance the cutesy fit with edgy accessories to stay out of princess territory.
