Short white dresses are becoming increasingly popular this summer and it’s easy to see why: they’re extremely versatile and due to their simple nature, are almost always in fashion. Let’s take a look at some of the things you should be aware of when buying and wearing a summer dress such as this:
The length. The shortness of the dress you choose is very important. Some dresses are just above the knee whereas others are more daring and come up by the middle of the thighs. The thing that you would need to keep in mind in this regard is the event you are attending and how well-shaped your legs are. Many may find extra short dresses offensive when worn to formal parties (perhaps a maxi dress would be better in this case). You don’t want to get unwanted stares where you go so always keep this in mind. It would also be no use wearing a short dress if you really don’t have the legs for it.
The style. There are so many variations that you will be able to choose from. If you are looking for something that is comfortable and gives you the perfect summer look, then go for those dresses that are flowing in nature. For a sexier look, you can try the straight cut ones. For a more elegant and refined look, a white lace dress. The kind of body you have is also a critical factor to consider when it comes to these dresses. You want to make sure that the style you go for is able to flaunt your figure as much as possible. Women who are full on the bottom part of the body look best in a-line cut dresses. For those who have a straighter build, you need to find something that gives you some shape.
The color. Just because you want to wear white dresses doesn’t mean that you have to go for the extra plain ones. There are very many styles that include other combinations of color. White and red gives a dashing look and so does black and white. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the colors you choose to use. Off white or ivory colors can also be a good idea.
The fabric. This will depend a lot on your purposes for the dress. If you need something comfortable to stay cool in, you can look into a white linen dress. If you’re after something a little more fancy and elegant, then lace or silk dresses might better suit your needs.
Once you find the ideal dress that you are certain will look good on you it’s now time to complete your look with the right accessories.
The kind you wear will greatly depend on the style of the dress you have. If your dress is already ornate enough, then go for simple jewelry such as pearl or silver stud earrings. For simple dresses, you can try out dangling earrings instead.
You can also make use of belts, scarves and other accessories to give your dress some accent and color.
