If there’s a brand that knows how to make the perfect summer dress, it’s, without a doubt, ‘Reformation.’ Almost every season, the celebs-liked label has made hits with its feminine, printed dresses. A glance at its current contemporary dresses collection immediately led us to the following conclusion: dresses with tied-straps are the next summer obsession. Dresses, as is well known, are a popular summer item. Every season they resurface in different variations and small little twists that create renewed interest in them – usually around the shoulders area. This summer, as evident by Reformation’s countless models and the other brands that are promoting this trend, the best pick is the tied straps.
Most seasonal variations come with relatively thick straps, a sort of counter-offer to the spaghetti straps that have taken over almost everywhere. The thick straps give the dresses a more soft, even slightly rustic look. Still, the thin straps continue to show their dominance. Last July, Kaya Gerber was spotted wearing a green Reformation tied strap dress at the Black Lives Matter rally in Los Angeles. The young modeled was joined by other female celebs, such as fellow model Alessandra Ambrosio, who prefer this trend in its spaghetti straps version.
The lacing detail, which gracefully adds interest to the familiar summer dress, is often paired with a floral print. And Reformation isn’t any different. In Reformation, for example, floral models such as ‘Othello’ and ‘Christine’ stand out, alongside countless floral models from other brands. Another clear and prominent bonus of this trend is the practical element of it. The tie straps allow you to play with them and adjust them to achieve the perfect fit of the dress to your body. This beautiful and practical trend continues to expand into the tank top and swimwear category as well. Then, it is not unreasonable to assume that in the remaining summer weeks, we will only see more and more of it. So, what do you think of this trend? Are you on board with it? Or will you sit this one out?
