What’s an essential dress for summer?
There are many different types of dresses that can keep you cool throughout the warmer seasons. One silhouette
that should always be in your summer wardrobe is the A-line mini – its shorter hemline keeps your legs comfortable
in the heat and the A-line silhouette ensures the fabric doesn’t cling to your skin. Another summertime favourite is
the sundress. Typically a more feminine take on the theme, this style is often sleeveless with a mid-to-full-length
hemline cut from a soft, lightweight fabrication. Look for brighter hues to complement the warm weather or try in a
floral print for a dynamic take on the style.
What to wear with a midi dress?
Not only is the midi dress a form-flattering style for many different body types, it’s also a versatile piece to style back
with the rest of your wardrobe. Wear with flats or a mid-heel for more relaxed settings, or higher heels for formal occasions.
Accessorise your midi dress with a leather belt cinched at your waist – this will add definition to your silhouette and provide
an artful contrast to the fabrication or print pattern. When the weather starts to cool layer up with a cropped denim jacket,
or a slim line blazer for a more sophisticated take on the look.
How to pick a dress that suits your body type?
It can be confusing finding the right dress for your body type when there are so many different styles and shapes to choose from.
A great place to start is to identify your proportions, by measuring your waist, bust and hips. Seek out styles that correlate to your
personal measurements, and then opt for dresses that accentuate your favourite part of your body. For example, mini dresses will
highlight the length of your legs while wrap dresses draw the focus to your waist. Play with volume to balance your look – a ruffled
bodice can balance a voluminous skirt, and vice versa, and a belted design can accentuate your figure with its cinched waistline.
