Ideas for a breathtaking birthday dress

If you have a summer birthday -- or if you like dressing up for no reason, like I do -- you might have a hard time choosing what to wear. Since black is the only colour, it can be tough. Throw in the fact that it’s a thousand degrees almost every day, you definitely have your work cut out for you. 

I went with this yellow dress for a birthday celebration that wasn't...

But I couldn't let it go to waste, so I decided to spam you all with these lovely, flowy layers -- great additions to this perfect birthday dress!

I love this backless dress from For Love & Lemons, it's very summery, and a great choice if you're going out clubbing or dancing.

A maxi dress in this bright colour also works well in the summer, that's why I love the long version by House of Harlow, below.


Nothing completes a perfect summertime birthday dress better than ruffles. I love all the goregous fabric and the way it drapes, flattering every shape.

The Nicholas dress above, while pricey, is so beautiful and can be worn forever!

Anything satin or shiny is a great choice for a dressy occasion. Although the dress I'm wearing is not available any more, the Lovers + Friends dress above is perfect!

I also love the dual texture of a dress, but the satin makes the dress look so much fancier. Perfect for a birthday or a night out when you want to impress!

If the long length is too much for you, try this midi cut below.
