One of the questions I get the most often is about occasion dressing. It seems like everyone is looking for a fun, pretty dress whether you have a wedding to go to or want something pretty for summer vacation. Let me tell you: Farm Rio is your new favorite brand. They make colorful, interesting, and tropical dresses that always impress. We picked out our favorite Farm Rio pieces at Bloomingdales just for you. It’s the perfect way to make a statement this summer.
I’ll start with dresses, because it’s what I get the most requests for during the summer. I know a lot of people have FOSD (Fear of Sleeveless Dresses). I don’t always love showing my arms, which is why I love when a brand includes sleeve options. The Jungle Dress has a puffy sleeve, but a wrap skirt silhouette that makes your waist look tiny. The hot pink-and-red color palette is unexpected but fun. Love Bridgerton? This Blooming Floral maxi dress has a similar neckline to the regency period, with a slit to show off your gams. For a full long sleeve moment, this Cool Leopards dress has colorful
Farm Rio also does a really great job with separates, if you don’t want to go too maximalist. It’s easy to pair a plain white tee with a fabulous skirt or your favorite jeans with a fresh top. On the skirt front, I love this orange-and-pink printed pineapple skirt in a breathable cotton. It feels like wearing a sunset. For an even breezier option, this chiffon-y tiered skirt is a masterclass in mixing patterns. Lace has been everywhere this summer, but this hot pink, long-sleeve top feels fresh in a sea of white eyelet. For a higher neck, this large floral print top would look perfect with a pair of wide-leg white denim.
