Although summer dresses are often quite short and very revealing, there is a new trend this year that brings back the long, flowing and loose dress. You may have seen numerous celebrities wearing these gowns, all with flowing material from at least the waist down (with some starting that excessive fabric look right from the top.)
Designer dresses for this season are focusing on more fabric but the fabric needs to be flowing in the right direction to make this a hit look.
What To Look For
As you look for dresses this spring and summer season, step away from those short, cute looks and instead focus on the options that are a bit longer. Here are some tips to help you to find the right look.
- Choose a dress that has a lighter color. Many of the longer dresses are in yellow and pastel like colors so as to not completely take over your body and look.
- Choose those looks that are flattering to your body. The good news here is that women will love these longer looks because they are flattering for just about any body type.
- Consider a fitted bust and a long, flowing bottom for the most common style of dress this season. You want the look to give your body some dimension and not to be a blanket wrapped around you.
- Another important feature is the length. Some women will instinctively pull away from this length, but the trend this season is for an ankle length dress. The skirt is going to flow better if it is longer.
Keep the dress as loose fitting as possible. This does take away from your body’s form in the dress, but it gives your body an alluring appeal to it nevertheless. Women will love the fact that they can drop and gain weight throughout the summer without having to worry about whether these dresses will look right. They are quite dramatic in their appearance but they are still very much appealing.
When To Wear Them
Long and loose designer dresses are very versatile. Wear them to that spring time wedding (choosing a lighter color to match the surroundings) or wear them to an office event. You can wear these virtually anywhere if you choose the right style and designers are offering numerous style choices to take into consideration.
Look for a high quality product, one that offers a long and flowing material that does not hug your hips or show off your legs. This summer’s trend in fun dresses is all about movement, too. Be sure the dress moves well with your body. And, to get the length right, do have the dress tailored to fit your body’s length properly. Stop the dress right at the ankles and wear a fun pair of heels with it, or make it more casual with a pair of leather sandals. Mix and match these with accessories that help to make a statement since most of these dresses are less formal.
