Summer dresses come in an thrilling range of styles - spaghetti straps, daring necklines, baring backs, cap sleeves and of course, the strapless version. There is something for everyone, and anyone can make a style statement by wearing the right summer dress. The sun dress is the right wear for women who prefer to wear a single garment for various occasions.
Outfits which cover the shoulder can be easily worn in a casual work situation and off the shoulder ones can be teamed up with a wrap for a night out. It is this versatility of the summer dress which makes it an eternal favourite. The summer dress needs very little adornment. Perhaps it is one of the reasons why women wear them to barbeques, picnics and even summer weddings. Cardigans, jackets, wraps, sandals, high heel shoes, flats shoes, hats, umbrellas or clutch bags work as good accessories for a simple summer dress.
In addition to brittle whites, pinks, yellows and greens are the most in-season look this summer. The prints range from fresh floral to cool stripes as well as ethnic batik prints. Cottons and poplins are popular for sundresses as they are weather friendly, easy to maintain and are free-flowing fabrics.
Fashion experts claim that the retro look of the 50’ is back this season. The dresses are romantic - cinched waists, thick straps, and figure flattering skirt with a resurgence of smocking.
