What can be more relaxing than a sunny summer day? What can be more beautiful than enjoying it in the sun wearing your favorite dress?
We all love dresses, they make us feel free, are the perfect item for showing our beautiful tanned legs and of course, they come in so many colors and prints that it is impossible not to find one that you are addicted to.
Every spring I start the “haunting” of new crushes, new dresses that will make the hot days feel cooler. It is not an easy job. When buying a new dress you have to take in consideration some features of your body in order to highlight the best ones and hide the parts of your body you are not so happy with. Some girls prefer mini-dresses, while some prefer midi or maxi ones. Some of us like a dress to be really tight on our body, while some like the flowy ones.
It is true some women don’t pay attention to details when they are choosing their dresses.
This is why before showing my picks I want to give you some 9 useful pieces of advice!
1. If you have heavy arms you should definitely avoid sleeveless dresses.
2. If you are the lucky owner of an impressive bust you can highlight that area through a deep V dress. Still, don’t exaggerate, you don’t want to be misunderstood.
3. Curvy women should consider buying A-line dresses, while the slim ones can choose something more tight.
4. The color of the dress is really important. If you have a light skin is better to go with strong colors like blue and green, while if you have darker skin you can choose any color you wish.
5. Girls having really thin legs should favor midi or maxi dresses instead of minis.
6. Quality is primordial. And here I am not talking about brand, but about the fabric and the way the dress is sewed and so on. There are plenty of gorgeous dresses, but made with poor craftsmanship.
7. If you are tall, you can consider yourself lucky. Choose any kind of dress you like. But if you are a short girl, then you should focus on mini dresses.
8. When the lower part of your body is bigger comparing with the upper part you may want to choose a strapless dress, driving all the attention apart the problem area.
9. And the best tip I can give you is to feel good in your own skin no matter what type of dress you wear. Attitude is everything!

#4 FOREVER 21 Maxi Dress, $16.85
This Sand & Stone Maxi dress is a real catch taking into consideration the prince. It features a zig-zag print in red and blue colors. Maxi dresses are very cool, but you have to pay attention if you are short. Wear it with a nice pair of flat sandals and a hat!

#8 Asos Asymmetric Dress, $71.49
Gorgeous color? Checked! Interesting form? Checked! Flawlessness? Checked! What can you ask for more from a dress? This is gorgeous and matches mostly the girls with small bust, as to add some volume in the upper part of the body.
#9 ROMWE Gentle Dolls Print Blue Dress, 37.99 $
You have to love this dress! It is simply funny and catchy. It is proper for mostly any kind of silhouette, but attention to the arms. Due to the fact that is sleeveless, if you have prominent arms, just avoid it. Whether you feel playful, wear it with sneakers. It could be fun!
