Stay Cool In Formal Wear

The combination of warm weather and formal dresses is always good in theory but can sometimes be a little sweaty in real life. We want to focus your attention in on pieces that are made for both formal events and summer weather. Think of lightweight fabrics and sleeveless styles and big flowy skirts. These three things make the perfect combination for your upcoming summer weddings and endless garden parties. Keep cool this season in the perfect flowy and airy styles that will take you from afternoon drinks to late night dancing.


Focus In On Fabric

When it comes to staying cool in summer, fabrics are usually the starting point. Steer clear of velvet and velour styles during the heat, as well as thick fabrics. Opt for a fabric that is lightweight and flowy. This could be something like a chiffon or a light cotton fabric. Anything that feels light to the touch and soft on the skin.


Say Sayonara To Sleeves

Let those arms breathe this summer. Sleeves that scorch are not your friend when it comes to those blazing days in the heat. Sleeveless dresses are the perfect choice for your next event – they keep you looking chic and cool. But if you do prefer a sleeve for a little extra arm coverage you can always go for a lightweight one. Think chiffon sleeves and billowing shapes.


Loosen Up

Let loose in loose fabrics and loose silhouettes. Styles that have a wide skirt are perfect for summer events and for those who have a pear body shape. Large skirts and a line silhouettes will keep you looking stylish and sophisticated. Attend you next wedding in style.
