It’s the month of June already which means the temperature in some part of the world would begin to cool down giving rise to the famous “summer dresses”. In this part of Africa, its about time we start pulling off our “summer dresses” because its the rainy season where we have both cold warm and hot weather. Today is one of such days, its a bit warm compared to the cold from yesterday and its days like this you just want to throw on a “summer dress”.
Summer dresses are cool because you don’t put much thoughts to them, its not a top and a blouse and they don’t need any layering whatsoever, you just pair them with your heels, flats or sneakers and you are out, no harm no foul. Summer dresses are perfect for everybody but you just can’t wear any cuts or design you like you need to think about your figure.
Below we show you ways you can get the right dress for your figure;
Apple Shape + Shift Dress
The shift dress for a girl with an apple shape is gold, but make sure you find something a bit more toned and flattering as opposed to a baggy or sack looking piece. A shift dress with a trumpet hemline would do just fine.
Tall + Flowy Flare Summer Dress
For tall women, a little more fabric would do more good than harm, but there is no need to wear full length dresses if you don’t need to. You can show off a little bit of skin in a lovely flowy flare summer dress, this would make your leg look less elongated than it actually is.
Hour Glass + Fit and Flare
The fit and flare dress is a curvy girls best friend because it pronounces your hour glass silhouette and it shows off your thin waist. The fit and flare dress is also very comfortable and easy to pull off.
Pear Shape + Full Skirt Dress
The whole point of a summer dress is to be comfortable and care free but if you are heavier around the hips then you have to go for a well structured piece like a dress with a nipped waist and pleated flare.
Petite + Mini Shift Dress
For petite women, its only natural to want to appear taller and much more robust than you actually are. Staring clear of too much fabric is a start, this means your summer outfit has to be free and comfortable, this two things are the characteristics pf a shift dress, but a mini shift dress would help your legs look elongated so go for a mini shift dress.
Boy Shape + Shirt Dress
Women with a straighter shape are always looking to add shape and a shirt dress can do this for you because you can cinch this with a belt to create an illusion of a waist.
