Summer Formal Wear Guide Part One

When the weather turns warm, it definitely shapes the decisions we make regarding our wardrobe. Whether you live in Florida or not, you've probably considered how in the world you are going to regulate your body temperature in a gown at an outdoor wedding in May. We put together some of our strategically chosen favorite cocktail dresses and gowns to get us through the season...

Part One: Cocktail

Short dresses are a little easier to figure out, but there are still things you want to consider. Make sure that a shorter length is appropriate for the event. Even if the invitation say 'black tie optional' or 'formal' you can still chose a cocktail dress that is embellished enough to make up for the hem. Also think about the weight of the fabric and whether or not you'll be spending some time in the sun. Heavier fabrics are definitely going to make you sweat and delicate fabrics, like silk, are going to give away your prespiration immediately. We chose a majority of jersey blend fabrics that breathe.
