When it comes to fashion, what do you think makes a person look elegant and cool? We ask you to just think back on what your impressions have been of elegance. Did you think that somebody who dressed in tight clothes was elegant or was it someone who wore loose clothes? Or was it the cool confidence that a person exudes even when they are wearing something natural and comfortable but without sacrificing style? We are sure that your impression of elegance would come from the last choice and we often feel that it comes from something indefinable. We are sure that when you read this part, your heart sunk with despair when you hear that elegance is not definable. But we beg you not to despair; we will try and decipher what makes a person elegant. The first thing that comes to mind is that wearing natural fabrics like cotton, silk and linen can help. In fact, if you are planning to have your offspring dressed in beautiful and sober dresses for graduation ceremony, we feel that you should consider linen as a good choice to go with. Linen, which a fabric that is woven from flax is known for many durable and elegant qualities.
In fact, if you are looking for elegant and perfect summer evening outfits, then a dress or outfit made of linen is the way to go. Because not only does linen look good and feel natural, but it has a quality that allows it to absorb moisture and is also very durable. You will find that linen does come in handy even for super hot beach outfits by ensuring that you feel cool and comfortable all the time.
But if you are considering linen for those clingy outfits that stick to the lines of your body, then you are setting wrong expectations. This is because linen is not a fabric that works well if the outfit you are wearing tight. Having said that, we also have to tell you that by ensuring that the linen fabric is cleverly cut, you can ensure a smart and attractive silhouette for any outfit that you wear.
Another aspect that you have to remember about luscious linen dresses is that they have to be cut and designed cleverly so that the fabric does not overwhelm the shape of your body. Which means that if you are wearing a loose shift made of linen, then it makes sense to wear a belt to give it a good outline. It also makes sense to ensure that the length of the shift is correct. In the same way, unless you are looking for ways to specifically bulk up your petite frame, you should ensure that the neck is cut in a way that is just right – which is not too deep nor too high.
One more aspect of linen is that it does not ‘do’ flashy shine, which is to say that linen has a lovely natural sheen that comes naturally to add to its elegance. This means that you have to ensure that you pick out the right colors that will flatter the color of your skin, hair and eyes so that it provides the right look for you. The thing about linen is that it does not come in flashy or too dark colors but this is all to the best.
This is because linen is mostly worn to feel cool and comfortable not to mention look elegant during the hot and humid months of summer. Do tell us what you think of linen dresses.
