It is well and truly summer...Well, in some parts more than others. My American friends have been talking about the heat across the pond. Over here, in Jersey, (Channel Islands, not New Jersey) the weather has been erratic, with rain and clouds interspersed with
sunshine. Regardless of the weather outside, rain or shine, we want to wear summer dresses. The shops in the High Street and online all boast a vast array of choices, with some of them in the sales. C’est fantastique!
There are so many styles out there, so many colours, so many prints that it is difficult to make a choice. How can we buy only one when there are two or three that we love?
In order to make things really easy, we shall concentrate on chic and elegant white summer dresses today. We shall talk about other colours and styles in a later post.
We all love wearing white for summer, understandable after a long winter having been swathed in black and other dark colours. White also looks fabulous over tanned skin, natural or faked.
Many are tempted to go for mini dresses in summer. It is alright for the beach but for normal daywear, styles that do not show too much leg or cleavage are known to be more flattering and elegant. A dress that stops around the knee area can make you feel more confident than an unforgiving tight mini-dress.
Depending on the area of your body that you wish to show off, or hide, there are a few points to keep in mind:
Have you found your perfect white summer dress and wish to describe it for us? Or do you need more advice before taking the plunge?
We want to hear from you.
