The only good thing about the sweltering hot weather is that we get to bring out them summer dresses. Here's our take on summer dresses. These ones here were especially designed with feedback from Sonu and me by <a href="http://www.pocketfullofdresses.com/index.php">Pocketfullofdresses.com</a> and we were so excited that they turned out to match our styles and personalities so closely.
Here's what we expect from the perfect summer dress:
Comfort: Soft cotton, breathable linens, light viscose and good quality voiles are the only things the summer skin can tolerate. We like the flowy-ness fabrics like viscose offer along with the comfort factor. Linens vary in thickness and quality so make sure you find yourself a soft one.
Style: The silhouette on a summer dress can vary from V neck spaghetti styles to the 40s style conservative dress. Whatever your pick, we make sure there is plenty of versatility to work with. In this case Sonu's dress is so workable with jackets and wraps for cooler weathers while I can wear mine as a tunic r even a blouse.
Colour: A summer dress has to be fun. Bright colours, bold prints, quirky motifs make a summer dress all the more fun. While tribal prints, nautical stripes and flamingos seem to be the flavour of the season, we feel that polka dots, florals, hearts and stars remain timeless styles for a summer dress.
Body type: It's important to pick a dress that suits you. A summer dress doesn't have to be short or flowy. Maxi lengths, straighter styles, mid calf lengths and longer sleeves are all doable in the right fabric and colour choice.
