Here are some lovely ideas from Ruth Meyers for luncheons and informal weddings:
Robert Rodriguez black and white dress
Lotus Grace white dress
Pink Tartan red pleated skirt with zipper waist band
Pink Tartan silk jungle print chemise
Although we tend to think of color blocking as colorful we also see this trend in the black and white Robert Rodriguez dress above.
The Lotus white matelassé dress is a perfect example of heavy fabrics worn in the summer and mixed with the lady-like silhouette of the popular Mad Men look.
The Pink Tartan chemise and skirt set illustrate both the bright colors and the prints of the season.
