WHAT MAKES A GREAT SUMMER DRESS?

The perfect summer dress I More on viennawedekind.com

It is no secret that I’m not the typical girly girl. I’m not impressed by pink peonies or pastel coloured food and I don’t buy dresses in bulk. With one exception: The Summer dress.
As a girl that usually chooses chic seperates over chiffony frocks, I’m surprisingly keen on wearing dresses at the moment. Blame it on the current heatwave or just on the fact that I’m spending too much time browsing through the Zalando Dress Edit… „But what makes a great summer dress anyway?“ You might think now. Here is my perfect dress formula:

1. SILHOUETTE // It’s all about the carefree silhouette! A happymaking off-shoulder dress, a simple wrap dress or a deep V Maxi is all you’ll need this summer.

2. FABRIC // I prefer all things Silk & Linen – these breathable fabrics are perfect summer dress materials and will keep you cool on a hot day.

3. LENGTH // Let’s be honest: with the right length comes confidence. I don’t wanna be bothered with a too short dress that needs all my attention (hashtag Marilyn effect). A midi or maxi length is perfectly carefree and braves any summer breeze.

4. MOVEMENT // Speaking of summer breeze: the ideal summer dress should move. No body-hugging, skin-tight silhouettes allowed! Choose lightweight styles instead, that float and dance with you through summer…

Das Kleid steht dir sehr gut, auch wenn das “verspielte” Outfit eher ungewohnt bei dir ist. Trotzdem drei Daumen hoch ;) Liebe Grüße Jen

This is such an elegant summer dress. Nice find. Shirring details are stunning! I love the sleeve detail too. I am a huge dresses girl. Linen ones in summer are perfect. I am going to need to find another long midi length one for next summer.
