Reese Witherspoon’s blue blossom wrap dress and ultra volumised hair proved that you can never go wrong with timeless elegance.

Incorporating a splash of colour and pattern into your summer capsule wardrobe is something that will never fail to make a statement, though you can also do this in a subtle way too. Picking classic styles and more low-key prints is a lovely way to switch things up without finding it too daunting. Reese Witherspoon proved this at her niece Abby James Witherspoon’s graduation when she wore a beautiful floral dress by her own Draper James clothing brand. The dress had a timeless wrap design and secured at the waist with a matching belt. 

The sweeping v-neckline of Reese’s outfit was so flattering and the subtle puff sleeves added a touch more femininity which was echoed in the gorgeous pattern. Reese’s wrap dress had a neutral white base colour and a pattern of powder blue blooms that resembled hydrangeas, with subtle highlights and shadows to give them more dimension.

Small emerald green leaves and stems enhanced the botanical theme of the dress without making the pattern overwhelmingly statement. The pastel blue and bright green were the perfect combination to brighten up Reese’s look and her choice to wear florals was a clever one. Flower prints are perhaps one of the most-seen and most-worn patterns this time of year and their enduring popularity means they never go out of style.

This means that floral dresses like Reese’s blue blossom dress are handy pieces to have in your wardrobe for years to come. They can easily be paired with your best white trainers for a day at the park or out in the garden, or dressed up with wedges and a cardigan for an evening out. Picking a floral dress with a neutral base like white, cream or black also helps to increase the versatility and make them easier to pair with accessories in different colours.

Reese Witherspoon styled her floral dress in the most glamorous way with a gold necklace and hoop earrings and went for an ultra volumised hair look. The Hollywood star is known for her love of side-swept hairstyles and she accentuated this even more for Abby’s graduation and pushed all of her golden tresses over one shoulder.

Reese’s hair had a lot of volume at the root and Celebrity Hairstylist and Co-Founder of The Hair Consult, Edward James, previously told woman&home that side-swept hair "suits" everyone.

"The side-sweep is such a great universal style as it literally suits all hair lengths and is flattering on all hair textures," James explained, before later revealing that it can also help to balance the features of those with heart-shaped faces like Reese.

The expert said, "Side-swept hair is flattering for a wide range of face shapes, also making it very wearable. Oval and heart-shaped faces can benefit from the asymmetry, balancing their features beautifully."  

Although you can wear your side swept hair in gentle waves Reese kept hers almost straight. Her make-up was fresh and glowy, with a rose pink lipstick and blush. This was such a stunning look from Reese Witherspoon and keeping your outfit timeless with a small pop of colour is such an impactful styling choice to make this summer.
