Ice cream, air conditioning and iced beverages, are just a few things to help stay cool in summer. But apart from all these things, summer is also a great time to wear an array of dresses in different styles. The best part about wearing dresses is that they not only look good but also feel good, as they help you stay cool and get past the hot summer days. With that thought,here is a quick guide to summer dresses that will help you stay stylishly fashionable yet beat the heat!
Maxi: The Maxi dress is one trend that never goes out of style. Maxi dresses are usually long and flowy floor length dresses. They are so versatile and can be easily worn in any season or for any occasion. Maxi dresses are extremely comfortable; they not only look good but will also keep you cool through summer. Lastly, while shopping for maxi dresses, it’s good to keep in mind that the length of the dress should be just below the ankle almost touching your feet (neither too short, that it is above the ankle, nor too long, that it drags on the floor).
Style Tip: This summer, try the latest fashion trend of Bohemian (or Boho) style maxi dresses in bright floral-paisley prints or with lots of embellish detailing like tassels or pom-poms. Wear your pretty Boho maxi dress with a pair of wedges or platforms along with statement jewelry for elegant eveningwear. To wear during the day, opt for simple flip-flops (or flat sandals) along with a tassel scarf, fabric or silver bangles and earrings to channel a chic Boho vibe.
Midi: The Midi dress is another top favorite and easy to wear dress style. Midi dresses have a nice length where they are neither too long like maxi dresses nor too short like mini dresses. The length of a midi dress usually reaches mid calf, between the knee and ankle (hence the term ‘midi’). Midi dresses come in a variety of different styles that can be easily worn in summer. Some midi dresses can also double up as Kurtis to be worn over churidars or straight pants/palazzos.
Style Tip: Stripes and monochrome are two top spring/summer 2017 fashion trends. So opting for a striped or monochrome midi is sure to create a fashion statement. Pair your midi with bright or metallic gladiator sandals or simple embellished flats (like Kolhapuris).
Mini:Mini dresses are another great option for summer. A mini dress is usually really short and the length can vary anywhere between just above the knee to 3-4 inches above the knee. The easy breezy style of mini dresses makes them super fun to wear and are a great way to beat the heat.
Style Tip: Ruffles and cold-shoulder are two more trends seen across fashion runways globally. So why not try these trends by opting for a ruffled or cold-shoulder mini dress? Pair your favorite mini dress style with a pair of white sneakers to go the sporty way or a pair of heeled mules for a more glamorous vibe.
So, whether it is maxi, midi or mini (or all three), choose your favorite summer dress style and have a super chilled summer!
