Summer Trend Spotlight: Dresses On Jane The Virgin

Jane The Virgin follows the life of Jane Villanueva, an aspiring teacher who was accidentally artificially inseminated, her mom Xiomara, and her abuela Alba. What makes the show so great are the characters. Jane is a fiercely independent mama bear with a vivid imagination and a skill for navigating sticky situations. Xiomara is a singer passionately pursuing her dreams and learning that you’re never too old to learn how to adult. Alba is the kind, headstrong voice of reason and the quintessential shoulder to lean on. As a dramedy focused on so many strong female characters, the show puts its own unique spin on the traditional telenovela. 

Smart, confident, and creative, all three of the Villanueva women have bold and colorful personalities that easily translate over to their sense of style. A mix of vibrant colors and patterns, their outfits radiate a positive and exuberant energy perfect for summer. 

The Button Front Dress

Sweet and nostalgic, the button front dress is a classic. Though this isn’t the first time this trend has come to the forefront, it never fails to make an impression. It’s a refreshing change of pace compared to the typical summer sundress. Plus, it can be used to create a variety of different looks with a little layering. It could be worn buttoned up or unbuttoned with a solid slip dress underneath.

The Floral Dress 

The floral dress is a summer staple for every closet. You can never wrong with a print that echoes the vibes of spring while adopting the bold color scheme of summer. Pantone’s colors of the season include fiesta red, turmeric, living coral and other warm yet muted shades. It’s no surprise that a ton of the flower patterns seen on the show do the same. Upgrade your look with a pair of strappy sandals or dress it down with some flats and a jean jacket for work.

The Fit and Flare Dress 

Form-fitting from the waist up and flared at the skirt, this dress is great for any occasion. It first came up in the 50’s but always manages to make a comeback. This playful spring trend carries over well into summer. The style effortlessly transitions from day to night, from brunch with the girls to an evening of dinner and dancing. You can slip a belt around your waist to highlight your curves, add a pop of color with a pair of striking peep toe heels, or keep it casual with some chunky sandals.
