Strappy Dresses Are Instagram’s Best Minimalist Fashion Choice

While we have seen plenty of spaghetti straps this year in the form of ballgowns and blouses, there’s nothing quite like a strappy day dress to complete your casual wardrobe statement of the day. Luckily for anyone wondering how to transition their style from the dog days of summer to the end of season, strappy minidresses can easily be layered and accessorized. We’ve turned to Instagram for the latest and greatest when it comes to this trend. Here are a few social media worthy ways to rock the timeless strappy minidress, and transform it into your new sartorial essential.

Dark denim: There’s nothing quite like wrapping up the remaining weeks of summer in a versatile, casual dark wash denim strappy dress. With its thin straps and flouncy hem, this frock certainly makes a statement. We are also liking the nude strappy sandals, which complement the design.

Floral dress: From garden blooms to splashy blossoms, it’s certainly been a season of flower power. You can always wrap up this trend for the summer months in the form of a flowing, pastel-coloured floral maxi dress. Take your cues from this strappy, ruffled dress, and accessorize with a pair of flat sandals and a round woven bag.

Stripes and layers: For a more work-appropriate and modest take on summertime dressing, try layering a plain black spaghetti strap dress with a black and white striped T-shirt, for a finishing touch.  The extra fabric will help you stay comfortable, while the concept of a layered strappy sundresses can bring your style into fall once the cooler temperatures hit.
