For those of you who are asking yourselves, “The comeback of polka dot dresses? But that look is so not stylish!” I am a huge polka-dot fan and I am here to inform you know that yes, it is stylish! Polka dot is back, so if you were still sporting that look, you are in luck. And guess what – you are back in style! As a matter of fact, sexy short dresses in general are returning in a number of cuts and patterns. For some time it seemed that most women abandoned their dresses after the Nineties. Just think about the significantly higher percentage of young, middle-aged and older women that wore dresses in the past. What’s more, during the Nineties the dress was still abundant and many women were sporting mini skirts and polka dot dresses. Although it isn’t proven anywhere, I like to attribute the transition back to the dress to the comeback of leggings. Younger women felt great wearing them with tunics, all the while getting them used to the feel of sporting dresses. And this is a strong proof that we’re regaining comfort with our femininity and finally realizing our power does not come from acting like guys; as a matter of fact, our strength comes from embracing our softer sides and using our female qualities to our advantage. In time for summer, the dress looks like it is back in full force. Boutiques are heavily stocked with dresses, and the majority of them dainty and more girly than the most of those seen in the past few years. Polka dots are huge too, and Mink Pink “Fancy a Flutter” Polka Dot Dress is my favorite. With chiffon main, short sleeves with frill detail and V neck this dress is a perfect date dress. It is a perfect party dress too!

The sun is finally out and that means one thing—it is the perfect time to invest in cool new sunglasses! There is definitely nothing that adds more to an outfit than a perfect pair of shades. And if you, like me, are all sick & tired of the hipster standard Ray Ban wayfarers - and its many rip-offs – Mink Pink has a perfect solution: Starlet Sunglasses. The black square framed sunglasses have a similar - and quite attractive - shape similar to wayfarers. Their classic and thick frame will add a modern appeal to the traditional look. Now be honest and answer this question: Have you ever seen a pair of shades that looks as stylish as these Mink Pink Starlet Sunglasses?

The dolman sleeves are what initially drew me to this Mink Pink shirt. They can be worn long or elbow-length. The Behind Enemy Lines is a sexy button-down shirt with a fold-over collar and a seven-button closure. There’s an inverted pleat at button-flap front pocket and tie at front hem. This shirt could very well become the most well loved item in your wardrobe. It’s especially flattering for those women with a larger bust. Available on Amazon, the Behind Enemy Lines shirt will help make the most of your summer. Perfect for everyday wear (but certainly sleek enough to suit your styling needs), pair this Mink Pink shirt with short shorts and you are set to hit town with comfort.

Crochet items seem to be the hottest fashion trend nowadays. It isn’t only for grandmas anymore, even though, you should definitely have your grandma crochet you some cool dresses. Crochet dresses are showing up on the catwalks and on celebs too. And the Mink Pink summer 2011 collection definitely didn’t shy away from the color white and fine crochet. Check out this little white Mink Pink Reality Bites crochet dress. It’s perfect to wear for those endless summer nights.

A lot of fashion brands are opting for single-color designs which are crisp, simple & clean for those who’re sick & tired of bold graphics. This provides buyers with a wide variety of options to match this style and accentuate it with many other outfits.
