This spring and obviously also into the summer I totally fell in love with smocking details. It’s an incredibly sweet and feminine styling detail and always reminds me of vintage dresses. It’s also very flattering especially around the waist, because it cinches you in while being so comfortable. This dress for example has the best smocking design on the waist. I also love puffed sleeves and an additional smocking detail makes it even more romantic. One of my favorite ways to incorporate smocking is around the neckline with those nightgown like dresses as I shared in this post here. Right now there are so many good styles out there and I couldn’t resist rounding them up here. Many of them happen to be on Sale as well, which is an additional plus.
