8 Perfect Little White Dresses | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

8 Perfect Little White Dresses

Written By: Robin Reetz

Without a doubt, the dress of the summer is the little white dress (LWD). In a world of print and pattern, there’s something about an all-white look that feels fresh, modern, and clean.

While a little white dress is perfect for the mid-summer heat, the right dress will work just as well come the early days of fall when paired with some nude booties and a light cardi.

These 8 little white dresses have certainly caught our attention. Here are the top, Cheap Chica’s approved picks:

It’s just that summer sandal season is our favorite in the world of footwear, so we’re experiencing a teeny tiny shoe obsession.

Aside from our sale sandal picks, we had to share a few more of our faves with you. From ZARA’s always-amazing shoe selection to the chunky platforms at Prima donna, we’ve fallen hard for these 7 styles:Shoe Obsession: 7 Must-Have Summer Styles | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

Look For Less: Mules | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

Look For Less: High-Heeled Mules

Written By: Robin Reetz

Aside from Birkenstocks, the other ‘will-you-or-won’t-you’ trend of the season is mules.

If you remember the 90s, then you remember mules: they were everywhere, and now they’re back. Worn the right way, it can be an incredibly chic and sophisticated look. But wear them the wrong way and it can look like you’re back in 1996.

Either way, this is a very trendy look so you’ll want to make sure you keep the cost down when making your mule purchase.

As much as we love these Prada Open-Toe Leather Mules from Saks Fifth Avenue, we’re not about to spend $690 on a pair of shoes…especially not a super-trendy pair. Instead, we’re opting for the Black Heeled Mule Sandals by New Look that retail for $47.62. That’s 93% cheaper than the Prada pair. Woah.

So, when it comes to mules, will you or won’t you?

Daily Deal: Jersey Cutout Maxi Dress | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

You’ve got your swimsuit and your sun hat, but what about your cover-up?

Sorry Chicas, but a baggy tee and jean shorts just won’t cover it. Instead, invest in a comfy, easy-to-wear maxi dress that you can throw on over your swimsuit and go to wherever the summer wind takes you.Daily Deal: Jersey Cutout Maxi Dress | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

We’re totally digging this River Island Jersey Cutout Maxi from ASOS that would work just as well as a day to night dress as it would as a cover up.

The side cut-outs and matching leg slit are key, assuring that you’ll be cool and comfy all summer long.

Did we mention that it’s half off? Originally $41.92, the River Island Jersey Cutout Maxi is now 50% off at $20.96.

But hurry! There are only a few sizes left. Happy shopping!

5 Skin-Saving Summer Sun Hats | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

5 Skin-Saving Summer Sun Hats

Written By: Robin Reetz

We recently received a reader question about sun hats – how to wear them on the beach, and how to find the fit and style that’s right for you.

It’s important to wear a hat or another type of coverage during the summer months to help protect your skin from the sun. The problem? Many of us struggle with hats, especially if we’re talking about a wide-brimmed style.5 Skin-Saving Summer Sun Hats | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

They key to choosing a summer hat is knowing your face shape and your head size. You want to make sure that the hat fits you properly – it shouldn’t be so big that it blocks your vision and could easily fly off, and it shouldn’t be so small that it fits too tightly and isn’t covering your skin properly.

We recommend trying on before you buy – this is the only way to assure that you’re buying the right hat at the right size. If you’re shopping online, make sure the store you’re ordering from has an easy to use return policy in case the hat isn’t quite what you imagined.

Here are 5 of our favorite sun hats:

Not into the woven style? Try this adorable vintage-inspired Logo Applique Baseball Cap$17.94, from Old Navy. Just make sure you have some sort of coverage in addition to your sunscreen. You’ll thank us later!
