So the weather just got warmer (and a bit wet, actually) over the weekend and as the heat intensifies, I couldn’t help but think about one of my favorite getups for this season—the summer dress.
The 3 C’s: Chic, Cool, and Comfy
In this scorching heat of the summer, choosing a dress that offers the three C’s over other clothes out there is a no-brainer. With the summer dress, you will surely be comfortable because summer dresses are usually made from soft materials such as cotton and linen—and you know what they say: the softer the fabric, the more comfy you’re going to be.
Most summer dresses are also breathable. This means they don’t stick much to our skin and allows plenty of air to pass through the fabric. This feature makes the summer dress the perfect attire to wear during hot, humid days as it helps in keeping your body cool even with the hot weather.
Lastly, summer dresses are very chic and stylish. With it, you’ll look bright as summer itself without any effort—just slip it on and you’ll immediately feel and look good. Plus, summer dresses are very versatile as it’ll look good with pretty much any piece of clothing you have in your wardrobe. You can wear a bolero or a cardigan over it, wear it with a pair of sneakers, flats or sandals—it’s definitely one of the most versatile dresses out there. Speaking of versatility…

For me, and I’m sure for a lot of stylish ladies out there, summer dresses are the ultimate wardrobe essential. Why? Firstly, though summer dresses are intended to be casually worn during—wait for it!—summers, it can actually be worn on any season of every year—and yes, even during winters!
Because summer dresses are usually made from light materials, you might be thinking: “This girl’s crazy! I’ll freeze to death wearing summer dresses at
fall, let alone during winters!” Well, have you ever thought about “winterizing” your sheer dresses? Yes, summer dresses are THAT versatile. Still can’t imagine your summer dresses in cold seasons? Here are some ideas you might want to try:
Wear a denim jacket over your dress, add boots into the mix, and it’ll be the perfect casual getup for fall.
Go further by adding more layers such as leggings and scarves and it’ll keep you snug as a bug under the rug during chilly winter days.
These are just two ways you can wear your summer dresses during cold seasons. Of course, there are a lot more ways you can add into your getup to keep you warm during fall and winter. It’s really up to you how you want to wear it. As long as you’re confident and comfy with what you’re wearing, who can stop you, right?
