Choosing the Perfect Summer Dress for Your Little Girl

Choosing the Perfect Summer Dress for Your Little Girl

Posted by Laura Bill on 9th Jun 2017

Now that the weather is getting warmer, it's time to start thinking about beautiful summer outfits for your little girl. Summer dresses are all about florals, prints and bright colours and we've recently just had a whole new range of materials come in which are perfect for the upcoming season. 

All of our dresses are handmade, which means we can create them exactly to your taste. You may also decide on purchasing matching accessories from us - but this can be decided at a later stage.

Want to know more? Take a look at our website here.

Top tips to bear in mind when choosing the perfect summer dress for your little girl:

1. Comfort

The summer months are hot and sticky, therefore you need to ensure that your little one is comfortable during the day. Opt for fabrics such as cotton which are breathable in warm climates and prevent over-heating. This is especially important if you plan on attending an event and your little girl is expected to wear a dress for a long period of time.

As our dresses are handmade and crafted from the softest cotton and you can also choose the sleeve-length of the dress to suit your preference; for example, sleeveless, short-sleeves or even long-sleeves.

For summer occasions, it may be best to go for a sleeveless or short sleeve option to get the most wear out of it. Although Britain isn't the best for warm weather, you will the peace-of-mind that your little one won't get too hot - and it would even be ideal to take on holiday if you plan on travelling abroad over the summer.

Comfort is everything!

2. Colour

When choosing a summer dress for your little girl, always go for light and bright colours with fun, bold prints. No doubt your little one will be more drawn towards the brighter colours anyway, but if you're unsure about which dress to go for, why not ask her opinion? 

We stock dresses for all seasons, however our summer range is sure to sell out quickly, so don't miss out.
