Street-fashion website summerofdresses.com is now twirling through its second year, proving that birds of a feather frock together

All it took was a declarative sentence to set a Twin Cities trend. Last summer, Nicole Weiler (right) declared to Meghan Wilker (left) that it was officially the Summer of Dresses. To cement the commandment, the ladies created a crowd-sourced website where women take the site’s catchphrase, “Wear and Share,” literally, uploading dress sightings across the nation. You’ll know a frock star when you spot one, with their brightly-colored plumage and effervescent personalities. To guarantee a sighting, head to St. Anthony Main, where they are often seen participating in flash mobs, drinking frocktails, or mingling with that other showy species, the Summer of Dapper men.
