A mustard dress for summer

What is a perfect summer dress? Apart from the subjectivity of that question, it usually comes down to one thing. If the dress reminds you of beaches, cocktails and sultry heat, then its job is done.

This mustard Grecian dress is as close as one could get to the aforementioned definition.

The texture of the dress seems deceiving with the visual stiff rawness, but it’d be unimaginable to wear raw silk in the middle of NYC summer. The V-neckline is not too revealing, but at the same time it helps to define her waist and breasts.

This outfit illustrates that pleating doesn’t have to be done the same way every time. Here, the pleats are created around the waist, shoulders and upper-back by gathering the fabric together with the help of a drawstring.

If the dress isnât enough to portray her confidence, then hand over the key to the leaf-patterned clutch and the bob haircut. They’ll do the job well.
