How to dress classy in spring and summer when the weather is hot? It’s definitely trickier to style yourself, even though it sounds kind of the opposite. If you have less items to work with, shouldn’t it be easier? Well, this is the thing, no it’s not easier! Because the materials have to be lighter, the colors have to be all light because otherwise it gets too hot. So you do have a few things to think about but, I am going to give you a few tips on how you can look elegant in summer.
Silk is the more expensive one, it’s usually 100% silk which is very delicate. Here I have one that is 100% silk and this is satin so this is a cheaper version But you know both works. They look nice but satin tends to get a little bit more wrinkly in my opinion so I prefer silk. I love tops like this for summer ladies, Cami tops. I also do love the kind of silk skirts, they’re very trendy right now and of course the maxi dresses or just any form of long dresses that are in silk.
I do believe that silk makes you look more elegant because the fabric is so delicate. It is very delicate and it is hard to maintain. You have to send it off to dry clean, you have to be very gentle with how you look after it because it’s very easy to damage. I think I’ve actually damaged mine a little bit here. So this is why silk looks more expensive but in my personal opinion, silk is also more cooling so it works really well in summer.
I personally recommend investing in like separates so you can mix-and-match with things. So I’m going soon to talk about shorts, you can for instance do a combination like this and it just works absolutely gorgeous and perfect for summer. I do believe silk is worth spending on ladies. It is one of those very classic pieces that never really go out of style. So my advice is to invest something in silk this summer. You won’t regret it because it will elevate your look and you will look expensive and elegant, even in summer.
Second of all, I spoke about the shorts just now. Everybody must have a pair of white shorts, maybe even a white skirt or a white pair of trousers. I would actually advise to get all three of them, they are amazing staple pieces that you can mix and match with anything. It can mix and match it with your silk tops, you can mix and match it with anything else that you have in your wardrobe that is very summery of any color and that is the beauty of it!
You can even wear it with black and usually in summer we tend not to wear much black. As you can see from the color scheme that I have going on here, everything is really in light colors and that’s kind of the mindset you should have for spring and summer. Do not buy things that are black. If you want to wear something black, then maybe go for like some form of navy.
Skip the jeans, I personally do not think that jeans is going to help someone look more expensive. I think that if you are somebody who knows how to style yourself, if you have a good eye for fashion then you can absolutely wear jeans and look fashionable, classy and you look expensive. But if you are a beginner, then don’t reach for those jeans because that is not going to make you, it’s not going to elevate your look ladies. Go for the safe bet like a pair of trousers, go for something that is a little bit more tailored because that’s definitely going to make you look more expensive.
The whole concept of these summer dresses that I’m speaking about is that they can be on the shorter side, they can show your decolletage without your cleavage being all over the place of course. But the point is that you can absolutely show more skin! For instance, this dress is kind of small. You know you are showing a lot of skin in this dress. But it’s not vulgar because it is cute, it is kind of like neutral, it’s not sexy. And I think that’s what’s important to think about when you’re styling yourself for summer.
Focus on femininity And cute summer dresses are very very feminine because it just has this feminine vibe to them, it has this flirtatiousness that I’m talking about, and trust me Now, whenever I’ve spoken to men and I do ask them about what they like seeing on women, the cute summer dress gets mentioned quite frequently! So I’m not inventing this stuff myself. I’ve actually asked men about this. They do appreciate a cute little summer dress, so go on the invest in one.
You can actually find great ones on the budget so you don’t have to spend a lot on finding one. As I was just talking about feminine dresses, I’m gonna speak a little bit about the wrap dress and I’m actually wearing a wrap dress right now. It is black so I don’t know how much of it you can see but this is the exact version of it just in red, so maybe you can see more of it like this.
What I like about this dress is again, the material is so light and flowy. Maybe I can show a video actually when I wore it, how nice it was and I just looked so flirtatious. You feel like a goddess in it and it just kind of shows off your curves in the right place while still covering you up and the whole part in the chest area looks just very feminine put together, neutral, cute and just like really perfect for any occasion.
