A Summer Dress Should Be Light, Bright, And Airy!
Remember, summer time is the most beautiful time of the year – but then again, it can get hot and humid pretty quickly. That means that whatever you do, you need to be sure that your outfit is comfortable and breathable.
For that very reason, we always recommend going for a dress that’s light, bright, and airy. In other words, you want something lightweight, which means you’ll want to pay close attention to the fabric. From there, you’ll want something breathable and flowy to ensure that enough air flow passes through it when you’re under that hot sun. Your go to fabrics here are natural fibres such as linen, cotton or bamboo. Don't forget your viscose (rayon) fibres although not a 100% natural are breathable and therefore suitable for warm weather. If you are searching for a conscious alternative to viscose have a look at lyocell.
And last of all, you want it to be bright and beautiful! We’re never one to shy away from a nice pop of colour, or a pretty pattern – and that’s where you can get creative with your summer dress. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with a bright blue or even a lemon yellow. Remember, patterns can be fun too, from floral to polka dots.
Summer time is the perfect time to let your personal style shine and a summer dress is the best way to do it.
Take A Look At Sleeve Length
Remember – light, bright, and airy. One of the best ways to ensure that your summer dress is light and airy is to take a look at the sleeve length and or shoulder straps.
First off, if your dress is sleeveless, then that’s perfect for warmer weather, whilst still protecting your shoulders! If you prefer a little more coverage then, consider the flutter sleeve which softens the look of the arm. If you prefer a longer sleeve length to protect from the heat, you need a billowing sleeve so its not clingy to the skin. A reminder, if you are big busted, then go for higher or longer than the elbow as it gives the illusion of a wider torso if its right on the elbow. Finally if sleeveless and sleeves are not your thing, consider the shoulder straps. Are they on the shoulder, off the shoulder, thin straps, thick straps, most importantly here you need to feel comfortable how do the straps fit when you are sitting in the dress? Are they adjustable?
