Summer cotton dresses

Easy to wear summer cotton dresses

Summer has arrived at last and the sun is shining. It is time to unpack your summer cotton dresses or alternatively treat yourself to a new one.

I find that a wrap dress is one of the most flattering shapes. It suits most figures. As I am quite tall I can wear a full skirted style as in the photo. Midnight blue cotton wrap dress by Winserlondon.

If you are a little more petit you might be better to choose a knee length more slim line version.

When choosing a dress I usually wear flesh coloured tights and nude shoes. This helps to elongate my legs.

    Extremely flattering and the colour really suits you. I agree; most people do suit wrap-over dresses.

    Oh, I am glad to see you wearing the blue version of this gorgeous dress, Josephine! The perfect dress for so many occasions, isn’t it? Thank you so much for the mention.
    You are taller than me, therefore I had mine shortened. I love the 3/4 sleeves a lot.

    I do hope to see you again when I am in London next time!
