When the hot days strike all we think here in Mediterranean is how to get off all the clothes, put on the swimsuits and head to the beach. At least I do.
Sometimes I wonder if this weather is normal at all, it’s not good for plants, animals are out of their mind, and us, humans, is it possible for us to survive anywhere except on the beach?
I suppose it is, we can get used to many many things so why not the hot summer weather too?
If you’re living in Mediterranean like I do and it’s not only the place where you spend your vacation, you would need to go to work or different arrangements and you would have different errands to finish every day.
What to wear in that case?
I suggest: summer dresses.
Summer dresses are one of the most feminine garments and so comfortable with its loose fitting and breezy feeling. You can gain effortless style with any dress you choose.
Here are few of my suggestions that can help you decide on choosing this piece of clothing for your summer.
Playful mini dress
Heels or sneakers, playfulness is their forte. And they fit all the body types. These dresses are meant for walking around the city or across the new attractions, like this bridge in Trogir, Croatia, where the two sides of land are connected and made as one. Positive vibes are felt on this viewpoint of the bridge as well as in this whimsical dress with an interesting back. Swing it!
In hot weather I would advise to skip a body-con dress, that is yes, very sexy and flattering and let’s you embrace your curves but again it’s so tight and heavy that leaves you with the feeling of a squeezing armour.
Hot red dress
Yes, well, I said in the previous section that the body-con dresses are not in my styling tips for this summer although you would agree they are perfect if one wants to show the figure and the hourglass silhouette. But they are normally made of the hard stretch fabric that is terrible to wear in summer so if you don’t want to sweat and feel uncomfortable choose A-line dress with a nice cleavage in a perfect red colour in a comfortable cotton-elastin fabric. High voltage, stay away!
Although I’m not a big fan of florals there is one of the floral prints that can amaze me and it is bold, one coloured flower print.
Flower power dress
Weather it is midi or maxi its effortless design and different silhouettes can be perfect for day or night looks, business or pleasure times, it just needs some extras like heels, platforms or flats, blazers and belts. You can choose the colours, patterns and cuts, it is really all up to you, since nowadays everything is trendy and wearable. Look at this navy-blue and white dress with ruffles around the décolletage my mother gave me. Vintage all the way!
If you want to make an impression of a luxe and expensive glow go for the satin or silk dress in a monochrome colour so the dress does the talking.
Silk or satin dress
First of all, I made this dress. I know it looks like a brag but I just wanted you to know so you don’t go out around the shops looking for it. You can try to find similar, of course.
Second of all, I’m in love with it, if it’s possible to be in love with things. It’s all I ask of a dress when I want to feel confident, sexy and luxurious. Yes, few of the special and refined accessories helped but still, the silk or in this case satin dress is all you need these summer nights. Glam the summer!
Dress to impress with a dress!
It’s easy to get dressed with one, it’s most comfortable in a hot weather, no matter which accessory you choose it will look good on you. What else a girl needs!
