summer outfits?

first off, Im a noob in soompi so i dont know if i posted this right  or  wrong -,-

Anyway, I was chosen to be on of the models on a competition this feb 29 at our school.  And i was chosen to represent summer. When i heard the word summer, the first think that entered my mind was a long boho dress XD So i've been searching and searching for nice boho dress that will look good/ flatter me ( since this is my first time entering a competition and it has been my dream to be in one! 8D ) So i found this site which sells affordable and nice quality clothes/accessories etc. and  I'm having a hard time choosing one  :(

So, I hope you guys would help me find a flattering dress for my body type and me. ( pics of me below)

    The 'Korean Style Bohemian Gallus Dress' was the first one that caught my eye. I liked those with the chiffons, the colors are lighter but they elude light, flowly feel with the translucent hems/end. You can match it with a half cardi or a bolero if you don't feel secure about your arms.:)

    For the hairstyle, I think a wavy look is classic with the summer feel. Otherwise, you can use a scarf, roll it up and tie it round your head (behind the ears) like those korean bunny hairbands, leaving a wavy end of the scarf and the hair to one side of your shoulders.
    Another way is to tie a braid/use a headband.

    These are some of the simple, more classic type of hairstyle when I hear the word 'boho' actually. :)

    Like Animeuver said, wavy hair or braids give off the "boho" vibe to me. Waterfall braids are gorgeous too. (:
    I would wear wedge sandals if the dress ends up being too long. Colorful bracelets and a cute sun hat would also make it look more summer-y too.

    Oh, and I would recommend ordering your dress by next week. Wholesale sites are a little iffy with shipping, so you'd want to give it plenty of time to get to you. :3

    Good luck with your fashion show! :D

    Hmm it depends on which look your going for, if your going for a romantic calm summer look then the first one, but if your going for an upbeat fun summer look then the new link. They're both nice :)

    That's a very different dress, haha.

    Well, shoes-wise I'd guess that wedges would be the best companion, you can wear silver bracelets/necklace/hoop earrings as accessories. Pick maybe 1/2 out of them all, because you don't want to look chunky? You can choose to wear a hat as an accessory, with loose wavy curls for your hair.

    Makeup, I guess the best bet is to go with a natural look, maybe with a orangey kind of blush and colors? I think you can try matching the colors of your dress to the makeup. :D

    I'm no expert though, still, good luck for the competition~

    I agree it's not very summery, a maxi dress would have a much more summery look, and they're easy to accessorize and style. Hope you can persuade her laugh.gif. At the end of the day it is your fashion show . happy.gif

    Personally I really like these dresses, My link , My link. These two are slightly more expensive than your budget but only a little, but they're really nice :  My linkMy link
    Also be careful with maxi dresses from these sites because the length can be short sometimes so make sure to look at measurements properly smile.gif

    Summer can get quite chilly here in France sometimes so I kept a very thin longsleeves with my attire.

    This is the one attire I'll be swearing by when summer comes, I think high waist short shorts with a belt and a matching tucked in shirt is nice.
    I don't really accessorize during summer since it can get quite loaded and just over done with all the really bright colors coming out, but I guess a lot of people get away with proper accessirizing (: I'm just a very simple girl when it comes to dressing up.

    Sorry for the stupid pose on the photo, but it's the only one I have with this look.

    As for shoes, this would look well with derbies, I tried it out once and got approvement.
    I think this is the type of look that can fit just about any body, especially when you slightly curvy since high waist shorts/pants can really complement the body shape.
    Hopefully you do find a summer outfit you'll like! Personally I think when summer comes, the simpler you look the prettier it is.
    I am a sucker for KIM HYUN JOONG.
