SOINLOVEWITHFASHION SAYS: Ellie has the 'one of the boys' look with a feminine twist and she pulls it off well. This trend has been very popular, This season, all the coolest girls will be borrowing from the boys, with pinstripes, felt suiting, white shirts and trousers providing a fresh riff on tailoring, while silk ties, cummerbunds and overcoats pack a manly punch. Ellie's dress is really pretty and i love the detailed flowery waistline and the neckline. Very 60s and it looks good on her skin tone with her cute pixie blond crop. Pair your white dress like Ellie with sheer black tights and black shoes creating a bold contrast making the dress stand out more.

SOINLOVEWITHFASHION SAYS: I love Uda's floaty white dress, so simple yet so summery and looks great with her chunky waist belt. Her brown leather laced up ankle boots give her a bit more edge contrasting with the innocence of her pretty white dress. Not forgetting her hair! Its gorgeous ! so cool! adds an element of old skool coolness to her image, makes her stand out from the rest. That's why i spotted her. Floaty white dresses are so in this summer, Get yourself one!
