Summer Style Guide: 4 Tips For Formal Dressing

Are you looking to upgrade your summer style? We love summertime fashion, but formal dressing during summer can be quite a challenge. You want to look glamorous and sophisticated, but also need to stay cool in the summer heat. Luckily, we have expert tips to help! 

Whether you are attending a summer wedding or garden party, you can incorporate these Bombshell wardrobe style tips to look your best this summer. 

Choose Summer Colours and Accessories

Summertime is for brighter and bolder colours. Don’t be afraid to go lighter, even for formal outfits. When selecting your summer style, consider brighter and refreshing hues, such as sky blues or sunny yellows. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, try adding sparkling gold or silver designs, such as our Silk Satin Collar Lace Dress in metallic gold. 

If you prefer more subtle summer colours, opt for shades of light pink, navy, or ivory. These shades not only look stunning, but also help to keep you feeling cool and comfortable under the sun. You can pair your chosen outfit with a few stylish accessories like a statement coat or elegant stole to complete your summer wardrobe look. 

Our summery Navy Roses Bombshell 'Edge Of The Shoulder' Midi Dress comes with a lovely matching blue stole. For a classic touch, you can also pair your summer dress with a beautiful fascinator or stylish headband from our colourful Bombshell collection.

Choose Cool Fabrics

A formal dress doesn’t have to be uncomfortable in summer. Choosing cooler fabrics can make a huge difference during warmer weather. Always choose light and breathable fabrics such as lace, cotton, or silk. These materials will help you stay cool and comfortable, while still looking glamorous. 

For summer formal occasions, a lightweight lace dress such as our Lace Edge of the Shoulder Dress in metallic gold will help you to look gorgeous while staying cool. Pair it with an ivory petite saucer for outdoor events, and you’ll be sure to turn heads!

Short and Sweet Dresses

You don’t always have to choose a long dress for formal events, especially during summer. Longer summer dresses can trap heat and leave you feeling uncomfortable. It’s all about finding the perfect length that's both elegant and practical. Try looking for shorter hemlines such as midi or knee-length dresses. 

For a unique summer style, add shorter dresses with prints and patterns to your wardrobe, such as florals or geometric shapes. We love the Confident Square Neck Dress in bougainvillaea aqua which has a beautiful floral style and cheerful colour to suit any summer event. 

Try a Wrap

Is there a bit of a breeze? Why not add an extra touch of grace to your summer wardrobe with a wrap? Wraps are both versatile and stylish accessories that can be worn in multiple ways. A lightweight wrap made from silk or cotton is perfect for formal events in the summer as it can be draped over the shoulders to add an extra layer of elegance to your look. We have a range of stunning wraps and coats that can add sophistication to any outfit.
