Summer Style Guide: Jacquard Dress

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Hello everyone!

We loved the love and the hits we saw last week on our first post in the series, Prints and Jumpsuits. It’s time to move to another staple, Yup!, you got it…Dresses!

I have been wearing dresses when a lot of girls in India were hesitant of wearing it, and like I have been saying to my friends, anybody can look and feel great in a dress that suits their personality and their bodytype.

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2001″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]Summer evenings can be a bit tricky: you want to look good but you don’t want to be uncomfortable. And that’s why I chose this Ice Blue, Jacquard Dress from Miss Selfridge, available on I have paired with it these awesome silver strapped heels from Dune London and round, oversized sunglasses from Vogue Eyewear’s latest collection.

Now this look has three major highlights: colour, fit and comfort and versatility.

Blue is an all time favourite for most people (men and women) and ice blue is a perfect shade for summer. You can wear it in the day.

Now Jacquard, is a term that usually refers to a fabric that has intricate work on it, almost always with another fabrics. And thanks to the woven work in silver,the dress has a little bling. Also, this dress looks semi-formal and a bit heavy; but it’s made of Polycotton. When we shot this look, the temperature was 44 C, so just take my word for it.

Lastly, I think this ensemble can look very nice, even in the evening, and just to show you that, we’ve got the right pictures for you!

Yes, I take my height for granted! But seriously, they have TPR sole which lends your feet a good grip. I am going to add the ‘Where To Buy’ link for you guys to check it out.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2005″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]That’s right, we shot this sequence at Summerhouse Cafe’s Bar just to give you an idea of what it’d look like in the evening. I feel the look is very feminine  and classy.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2006″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]Accessories were very simple: a diamond ring and a pendant, ‘coz I wanted the outfit to do most of the talking. You can even wear pearls or a pretty bracelet if you have a very format event to attend.
