Basic but real chic tropical summer dress ideas.
With the heat going strong and your idea of dressing up involves a one-piece that is a dress so your legs can roam free, here’s a list of dresses to consider when you’re stepping out casually but still want to ooze real style vibes.
Dresses are a must during the hot tropical summer season. Coupled with the humidity that is on a different level here in Malaysia, a casual dress with light fabric no matter the length is a blessing. To help you locate a casual summer dress that is pretty basic but obviously chic, look nowhere else but below. Enjoy!
For those in love with the womanly curve and would like to have that highlighted when wearing a dress, this basic bodycon dress in grey is perfect. It comes without sleeves so you can let your underarms breathe as you stroll in the evening. With a simple footwear tweak, you can keep this dress mad casual via sneakers or dress it up with some pretty heels/flats.
Puff Sleeve Shirt Dress
Shirt dresses are some of the best to wear to weather the sun in effortless style. This dress trend transforms the look of your casual summer frock in a style that looks pretty dressed up but toned down. With a collared neckline, tab sleeves, self-tie waist and a mild high-low hem, this shirt dress makes your casual look far from basic.
Dolman Sleeve Oversize Dress
If you love a roomy silhouette, then this is the dress for you. With pockets at the side, V-neck and a short high-low hem, this oversize dress comes with a dolman sleeve style that will look good on almost anyone.
Torn Hem Slip Dress
As hems get more adventurous, this slip dress has the torn edge effect nailed down and you get to wear it layered over some crop top (or bandeau) or on its own. The sandy color is perfect for the color-shy minimalist dresser.
