Dress To Impress with Easy Dresses for Every Season

Yes, summer just started. But we must look forward to the upcoming seasons in order to make our wardrobe work overtime. Like that favorite summer dress you just can’t live without? If you could wear it all year long you would, right? With a bit of creative styling you can! Layer and combine texture and pattern in an artful way to extend the life of your most cherished pieces.

The key to carrying over lightweight dresses into the colder months is to keep things simple. This can also work with heavily beaded dresses or cut out dresses. To have the greatest success, a short body hugging dress works best as a base for your cooler weather accessories. Keep casual cocktail dresses, either in prints or in solid colors, in mind for this application. Dresses cut in simple forms and light fabrics make versatile additions to your closet.

Mixing it Up With Some Hot New 2015 Styles

Sherri Hill 32321 Navy Floral Print Homecoming Dress

Pair bold florals with neutrals to make the pattern pop

Sherri Hill 32321 Fall Floral Print Party Dress is a great example to show how to pull this off. A bold graphic floral print doesn’t have to be confined to summer or spring. Since this dress has a low v neck it would go well with a solid color cardigan, solid knit stockings, and a pair of biker boots that hit just below the calf. This gives off a look that says sweet but edgy. Playing with contrasting textures is a great way to emphasize the best of each piece. The satin-like finish on the dress against a knit fabric can look sumptuous and rich. Depending on the color cardigan you chose, you can pop one color out of the floral pattern. A pale pink or a bold fuchsia makes for an interesting statement. Putting leather boots with this look makes it feel like fall, but keep them simple. The main focus is the pattern design on the dress. Neutral earth tones go well with this look. Deep blues or slate grays are colors that could pair well with this cocktail dress. Continue reading

The Best Casual Summer Dresses For A Night Out With Your Girls

Happy Summer 2015! As of yesterday, summertime is officially here and we couldn’t be more excited (to wear dresses, of course). From weddings, to graduation parties, to BBQs, to nights out with your besties, summer is full of events for getting dressed up.

While the weddings and more formal summer parties are always exciting, we know one of the most enjoyable times about summer is getting to spend some fun nights our with your friends. So, to help make sure you have some cute outfits to wear, we picked out some of our favorite casual summer dresses. These dresses are not only perfect for a night out, but can be worn at casual parties you have during the day, too, like a Fourth of July BBQ (believe it or not, less than two weeks away!). So, stock up on these casual dresses to take you from day to night all summer long.

Cold Shoulder Lace Dress

Cold Shoulder Lace Dress monob-kd7204

For a dress that’s all about unique style, we love Cold Shoulder Lace Dress style KD7204. This short dress has a cold shoulder cutout and a lace embroidered layer design with crochet detail at the hemline. Off the shoulder looks are such a unique style to wear, and pairing it with lace couldn’t make this look any  more on-trend. This dress is only $58, so it’s a totally affordable look that you can wear over and over again.

Neon Floral Print Bodycon Dress

Neon Floral Print Bodycon Dress tp_2298d-warm-c

Floral is just about the perfect print to rock all summer long. Pair it with a little neon? DONE. The Neon Floral Print Bodycon Dress style 2298D combines floral and neon flawlessly, all in a look meant to show off your curves. This fun and sexy neon floral print dress features a strapless plunge neckline to finish off the look. The best part of this dress, though, is that it’s on sale for only $18.99!

Peekaboo A Line Dress

Peekaboo A Line Dress minuet-7263

Cutouts are so on-trend lately and couldn’t be more perfect to show off some skin in the summer. The Peekaboo A Line Dress style 7263 features an cutout open detail in the front, and a simple, yet stunning, cutout open back design. While you can wear this as a casual dress, you can easily dress this one up for more formal or semi-formal events, too. This dress is $88.

Get Lacy Floral Lace Skater Dress

Get Lacy Floral Lace Skater Dress vm-cs2131-mint-2

Last, but certainly not least (and there’s plenty more in the Casual Dresses section of our website!), is the Get Lacy Floral Lace Skater Dress style CS2131. This flirty and fun floral lace skater dress features tank straps, a v-neckline, and a banded waist. Much like the Peekaboo A Line Dress above, fit and flare looks like these are great for just about any body type. While the dress is shown in Mint above, it also comes in White. This dress is $52.

Whatever your plans are this summer, we hope you have fun dressing up all summer long! Obviously, dresses are our favorite piece of clothing, and summer time is just about the perfect time to rock dresses. So, enjoy!

Rissy Roo’s 8th Grade Dance Dress Testimonial: Lisa Da Prato-Cook

Spring 2015 has been full of formal events, and our Roo Girls are sending us pictures left and right of themselves all dolled up in their dresses from RissyRoos.com. While prom is certainly the big night to remember for many of our girls, 8th Grade Dances are very popular during this time, too. Most recently, Lisa Da Prato-Cook sent us a picture of her beautiful daughter dressed up for her 8th grade dinner dance, and we’re obsessing over her look!

When Lisa sent us the photo, she said:

“My beautiful daughter at her 8th Grade dinner dance! Thank you so much Rissy Roo’s for all your help in finding her the perfect dress and making her feel like a Princess!”

Lisa Da Prato-Cook's daughter at her 8th grade dance

Awww! She definitely did look like a princess, from head to toe! We hope she had an amazing time at her 8th grade dinner dance. Up next (in years to come, of course)… PROM!

Selena Gomez’s Hotel Transylvania 2 Premiere Dress Is Red Hot!

Selena Gomez is all about style and fashion, even when she’s promoting a Disney movie. The celeb is currently out promoting her newest movie, Hotel Transylvania 2, due in theaters September 25th, and currently had a few press pics snapped of her in Cancun, Mexico looking flawless, as usual. She wore a two-piece red gown that featured a strapless crop top and a high slit skirt that we’re basically obsessing over.

Selena Gomez Hotel Translyvania 2 Premiere Cancun, Mexico.

This gorgeous look is definitely making us itch for the next formal event! So, of course it sent us on a search to find strapless red hot two-piece dresses of our own. We found two dresses that are so perfect for grabbing Selena’s look for your next formal or semi-formal event. Check them out below!

Jovani 94221

Jovani 94221

For a crop top and sexy thigh high slit skirt like Selena’s Hotel Transylvania look, Jovani 94221 is a great choice. It’s a radiant two-piece strapless dress that also features a sweetheart neckline. It’s a beautiful look that’s definitely red carpet worthy!

La Femme 21050

La Femme 21050

Another elegant choice, with a smaller crop top that’s more similar in style to Selena’s bandeau crop top is La Femme 21050. This two-piece dress features all-over lace with nude lining, a sweetheart neckline with a back closure and a skirt with a mermaid fit.

Choosing a red dress, especially in a two-piece look, is all about making a statement. So, whenever you decide to rock a red dress (or any other outfit for that matter!), whether for prom, homecoming, sweet 16, bat mitzvah, etc, wear your dress proudly and with confidence because you’ll certainly have all eyes on you in such a stunning, bold color!

What did you think of the Selena Gomez Hotel Transylvania 2 premiere look? Did you love it? There’s a little bit of controversy not around Selena’s dress specifically, but around what her co-stars, Adam Sandler and Kevin James wore to the premiere. So, if you haven’t seen the pictures or read about what happened yet, make sure to check it out.

Top Dresses For Guests Attending Every Type of Wedding

dresses summer weddingsThe warm weather is here in full force, and that means it’s not only Dress Season, but Wedding Season as well (it’s all about dresses at weddings, after all!). So, to help our Roo Girls be ready to attend any weddings you’re invited to this summer, we’ve put together some of our favorite dresses that you can wear to a variety of different types of weddings: Black Tie, Formal, Semi Formal, and Beach wedding. Check out our top picks by event type for dresses for guests at weddings below, and shop more looks at RissyRoos.com.

Black Tie Evening Gown Sherri Hill 32292

For a black tie wedding, we’re all about one of our brand new Sherri Hill looks, Sherri Hill style 32292. This gatsby inspired fitted jersey evening gown features a stunning beaded neckline and a draped beaded back. This gown is a new addition to the Sherri Hill collection for Fall 2015, but it’s a perfect choice for any formal event!

Formal Cocktail Dress Shail K 3667

Shail K. style 3667 is a fierce mini dress that’s all about elegance. Shail K.’s signature, stylish beaded pattern adorns the lovely cocktail dress from high choker neckline to hem. Plus, gracefully bare shoulders finish off the divine look of this dress.

Semi Formal Cocktail Dress Sherri Hill 1978

Sherri Hill style 1978 is all about the classic Sherri Hill silhouette, which makes it perfect to bring a little fun to a semi-formal event, while still looking super elegant. The strapless short dress features a sweetheart neckline and a shimmering crystal beaded bodice with a flowy short chiffon skirt. Like Style 32292, this dress is part of the new Sherri Hill Fall 2105 collection, but who wouldn’t want to wear this dress immediately?! It can easily be worn in the summer months, making you totally ahead of the trend.

Beach Bari Jay BC-1500

Summer is all about beach weddings! To get that beachy vibe, we love Bari Jay BC-1500. It’s a strapless chiffon evening gown with a shirred bodice and a natural waistline, making this a dress that looks good on just about every figure. Maxi dresses like this one are so perfect for summer weddings for when the wind kicks up by the shore. But, if you prefer short, check out Bari Jay BC-1500-S to get this same style in a cocktail dress length. While this is a great dress to wear as a guest to a wedding, this look can also be used as bridesmaid dresses.
