SUMMER BRUNCH OUTFITS FOR HOT WEATHER
Warm weather always inspires simple silhouettes that pack a punch. The last thing we want when the temperatures rise is to get weighed down by frivolous detail.
I am really excited about the mix between new styles and updated classics for a summer brunch in hot weather. Here are two of my favourite summer brunch outfits for hot weather.
12 LACE SLIP DRESS WITH FLATS
If you want to stay cool but look great, try out a lacy slip dress.
13 LINEN DRESS WITH SANDALS AND A HEADBAND
A simple silhouette in daytime fabric styled with fancy shoes is the perfect solution to dressing up for brunch in the heat. Add fanciful accessories like a headband to complement the look.
Oh, I stumbled upon this pretty old money linen dress at &OtherStories, and trust me, you’re going to love it – no cap! The A-line silhouette paired with that round-cut neckline (although it looks like a halter neck to me) creates a mesmerizing combination that not only flatters your figure but also exudes a sense of pure grace.
Btw I will have to take it to my seamstress. Size 0 (EU32), runs too big for me – as expected. (My measurements are 73 with a push-up bra, 52, and 74.) But here’s the interesting twist – my dress (size 0) fits my mother like a dream, and she usually wears size 4 (EU34 / FR36). I guess this dress is not 100% true to its size. So perhaps, if you are in between two sizes, size down. Or take the size you get (that’s still on sale – btw this dress will sell out soon) and ask a seamstress to take it in.
