Today I’m excited to share the complete Buying Guide with you… a breakdown of every style in the Collection, including available color ways and sizing information. My beautiful friend, Ryanne, is also joining us to show the collection on a gorgeous size 12 figure!

And just as with all our Collections, we color-matched across all styles so everything mix-and-matches! Let’s get started!

Sizing info: I’m 5’4″, 32B, and wear a size 2/size 26 jeans. Ryanne is 5’4″, 36DD, and size 12.

 

DRESSES

PARADISE SMOCKED WAIST DRESS //

Smitten is an understatement when it comes to the Paradise Smocked Waist Dress! Not only are the prints incredibly fun, but the silhouette is both flattering and comfy! The wide smocked waist sits comfortably at your waist or hips, wherever you prefer, and the relaxed sleeve falls at just the right part of the arm.

The buttons are fully operational, and it has a flirty tiered skirt. Keep it casual with flat sandals, or dress it up with heels or wedges.

Sugarplum Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS, and Ryanne is wearing Large.

ISLA MAXI DRESS //

You know I have to include a flowing maxi dress in every Summer Collection… I just love the style for so many occasions! The Isla Maxi Dress has Grecian vibes, in an easy-to-wear silhouette.

The waistband has a scalloped trim and sits higher on the body for an elongating effect, and the v-neck is so flattering on the bust-line and shoulders. We made it using the best fabric for the season, with a touch of stretch for a forgiving fit. Good luck choosing which color way you like best!

CABANA DRESS //

The hero piece of the Hello Summer Collection, the Cabana Dress makes a statement in every way! We’re crazy for the bold colors and happy pattern, and the oversized bell sleeve is as flattering as it is fun!

Made of a super-soft cotton poplin, it’s both crisp and drapey. It’s fully-lined with a slight a-line shape for a universally-flattering fit.

Sugarplum Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS, and Ryanne is wearing Large. If you’re in-between sizes, you could go down in this one.

SANCTUARY MAXI DRESS //

Pack your bags, because the Sanctuary Maxi Dress is vacation-ready! Made of the best flowy fabric with a touch of stretch, it’s so soft and breezy. You know we’re crazy for the color blocking, and the elastic back creates a comfortable and forgiving fit.

DECKED OUT DAY DRESS //

Surprise! We brought back the best-selling Decked Out Day Dress from last year’s popular Summer of Fun Collection… but this time it’s in the most incredible forgiving fabric that stretches and moves with your body. Basically, it fits the boobs even better than before!

It has the cutest ruffle neck, a-line shape, and comes in the best color ways! And of course, pockets!

TOPS & COVER-UPS

OCEANSIDE V-NECK TEE //

Tees are a staple in Summertime, so we made our Oceanside tee of the softest cotton, and gave it a flutter sleeve for a cool and flattering fit. The v-neck is bra-friendly, and each has the cutest trim for a little more pizzazz.

BOCA CHICA HALTER BODYSUIT //

I love bodysuits, but don’t always love the figure-hugging shape… so we changed all that with the Boca Chica Halter Bodysuit! Made of a flowing fabric, it has a relaxed fit on the top that easily drapes away from the body. We gave it a deep-v for a sassy fit, perfect for day or night.

And bonus… the bottom is a soft cotton jersey with a no-wedgie fit! Each color pairs perfectly with our Bungalow Palm Pant, as well!

BAHIA BEACH COVER-UP //

It wouldn’t be a Summer Collection without the perfect swim cover-up! We wanted the Hello Summer Collection to include everything you need for a stylish vacation, so we designed this chic cover-up to take you from pool to lunch with style!

Made of a super-soft cotton, it has a fun textured trim and adjustable straps. We gave it a side slit for sass and movability.

BOTTOMS

PLAYA SHORT //

The best-selling Playa Short is back, baby! And in the same show-stopping pattern as the Cabana Dress. Made of the same cotton poplin, with a leg-lengthening high waist and inseam. We kept the leg opening loose so nothing pulls or grabs.

Pair it with our Oceanside V-Neck Tee or the Boca Chica Halter Bodysuit.

Sugarplum Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS, and Ryanne is wearing Large. If you carry weight through your middle, consider sizing up in these.

BUNGALOW CROPPED PANT //

You know I live for a wide leg pant, and our Bungalow Cropped Pant is not only made of the flowiest stretch fabric, but in the cutest palm print for Summer!

We gave them a wide waistband for a smoothing effect, plus a side zip so everything lays flat. Wear them with any of our Boca Chia Bodysuits, or your fave tank and jean jacket.
