It’s summer once again and for women who are looking for ways to cool down, there’s this traditional clothing that you must have and must wear. It’s no other than the sundress which was made popular in the 1960s courtesy of Lily Pulitzer.
A sundress can be long or short. The long type can be of ankle-length while the short one can be of knee-length or a little above the knee. It can also be plain or printed depending on the preference of the wearer.
This goes well with flat or heeled sandals and can be worn with or without your accessories. When you’re outdoors, however, it’s best to use your wide hat and large shades to match this outfit.
What makes this dress popular is partly because of the material it’s made from. It is normally made from lightweight fabric, commonly cotton and has a loose fitting. Today, however, other types of fabric are also used including denim, jersey and silk.
Most sundress has a closure for a good fit. The closure types include the side zippers, back zippers, front buttons, back buttons and back ties. There’s also the pullover style, though.
The idea for this type of dress is to provide the wearer a comfortable and cool feeling during the hot summer months. Compared to wearing a skirt or blouse, donning this type of clothing gives women a lighter and more comfortable feeling wherever they go.
The maxi dress is the other version of the sundress. This fashion trend became popular in the 1970s at a time when women were starting to get employed whether part-time or fulltime and is making a comeback this 2012.
This comfy sundress never goes out of style because you can wear it every year when the heat is on. It’s a must-have for every woman’s wardrobe.
