July closes soon and we all look to the cloying heat of the last few months of summer. A lady calm and fresh in a summer sundress speaks volumes. The colors need to be darker and more vibrant to bring on the coming fall while staying cool. If you look for Indian summer dresses this year, look for these styles to keep the vintage romance alive.
The Peter Pan collar is in high fashion in 2014. If you’d ask a 1920’s flapper, she would have said the same thing. A higher collared dress is perfect for Indian summer dresses. It adds a little formality to the open necklines of full-fledged July. Pick pumpkin colors and beige to make the dress follow you into the Autumn colors.
Bold and Dark:
You don’t have to be hot in black. Choose chiffon and lighter fabrics to make your evening summer dresses airy and cool even in the September heat. Sleeveless dresses are still appropriate for this season and can aid in keeping you cool. Choose a blue or black and take the dress everywhere you go for a versatile all-occasion dress.
With a love for the truly vintage, choose Indian summer dresses in emerald hues. This color has the high-fashion style while keeping to the new jewel tones of the fall. A sleeve or longer hemline will carry easily into fall.
Mix it Up:
Don’t be afraid to mix up your colors. Take a dark hue and blend it with a light. Chiffon overlay and soft fabrics will do nicely for Indian summer dresses. We love this Nataya gown that could make it to a formal dinner event of a night out with the gals without a stitch.
You may not want to say goodbye to summer, so hold on a little longer. Buy yourself a dress that will keep the heat of the air going while transitioning into fall colors effortlessly. Indian summer dresses are just another juicy opportunity to make find the perfect season attire. Adding a vintage flair never hurts, either.
