Let us make the best of the summer months to dress up in stylish clothes and show some skin. We are all covered up in cardigans & coats in the winter months anyway.The palaver about the weather conditions is not going to help. And if you are not holidaying in the Swiss Alps, in Shimla or Mussoorie, the next best thing to do is to wear  stylish clothes in this summer, which is one of the worst in recent memory , with temperatures soaring over 50 degrees C(122 F) in parts of India. Summer also comes with intense heat  , stickiness, humidity and so on. However much you to try to remain active,there is a sense of lethargy & listlessness. We have all been advised to hydrate and apply sunscreen . The main idea is to stay &feel dry & comfortable, no matter the temperature .Lets take a look at summer dresses for women.

Let us give you some tips on Summer Dresses for women

Fabric choices – As a matter of fact, this is the most important thing .  In other words, whatever type of dressing you choose, make sure it is made of linen, cotton, bamboo, rayon or natural silk. These fabrics allow the air to circulate more freely and will not trap the moisture near your skin. Indeed, they will help to release the trapped heat.For instance, bamboo has anti fungal & anti bacterial properties .Wearing fabrics such as polyester,nylon, acrlylic, spandex or lycra is a big no no. They trap the heat in the skin & you can start to feel sticky soon. Further, the perspiration  marks show up in the underarm area & the back.

Secondly, the clothes should be loose fitting clothes more than form fitting. This helps us to stay more comfortable & relaxed & breathe easy. Pick up loose fitting garments such as salwar suits, sarees, skirts,dresses and shorts . In India we are spoilt for choice with several online stores offering all this & more.

Salwar suits in cotton are the most ideal summer wear. They help you to stay covered so as  to avoid the scorching sun & yet stay cool & comfortable. You can even use the dupatta to cover your head if you are under the direct sun.

Sarees If you pick up a light weight cotton saree or a Kota saree, you will notice that they are nearly weightless.You can pair them with a sleeveless blouse or a light organza blouse too. Sarees are graceful at anytime.They will not be tight around the thighs. Hence you are not likely to sweat.
