Types of Summer Dresses to Suit Every Occasion

Here are some summer dresses for women that fit a myriad of occasions and lifestyles:

Traditional Salwar Suits

A classic salwar suit with a flowy dupatta is a mainstay of the quintessential Indian woman’s closet. A muted Lucknowi embroidered fabric or a vibrant bandhani print can make you look sophisticated and bursting with femininity. You can also opt for Anarkalis with light fabrics and cotton churidars with flowy kurtas. Try and limit the use of brocade and heavy embroidery on ladies' summer dresses. Instead, incorporate heavier elements into your summer dress by designing ornate borders for sleeves or necklines and keeping the rest of the outfit soft and uncomplicated.

Indo-Western Kurtis

A kurta set in a combination of modern and desi vibes, Indo-Western designs can be very versatile and a favourite of both old and young. One can get a lot of wear out of such a summer dress since it can be worn on a variety of different occasions. These summer dresses for women are a great way to add a bit of traditional embellishment to your outfit without overdoing it. It is also perfect for those who want a slightly more modest and Indian touch without the effort involved with wearing a saree. For example, you can try wearing a short kurti with linen wide-leg pants and play around with the neck and sleeve designs. Opt for flowy sleeves for a more feminine look. Sleek and fitted kurtis look great as a mini or midi dress, perfect for an evening out. 

Lightweight Summer Sarees

When picking sarees for hot weather, natural fibres are the way to go. India has a range of different types of cotton, most of which are perfect for the summer months. Such outfits help keep you cool and shaded from the sun. Cotton and linen fabrics come in a wide range of colours and patterns, so there is no dearth of trendy and viable options. Apart from natural fibres, georgettes, and chiffons are a great alternative to cotton since they are also lightweight. Delicate summer dresses for women made of these fabrics cut a dainty and flattering figure.

Simple and Minimalist Designs

For those who struggle with the saying “less is more” but want to re-invent their wardrobe, keep these tips in mind. Instead of opting for too many competing fabrics, colours, and layers, opt for a sleek and minimal summer dress. Go for a simple long kurta with minimal prints. You can even try dress materials that have a self-print or embroidery in the same hue as the fabric. Such summer dresses for women create a cooling effect for the eyes and work magnificently with pastel shades such as muted pistachio and lemon yellow.

Fresh and Summery Hues

Summer pieces offer a soothing respite to the eyes. So, try and experiment with something that you don’t usually wear. For example, if you usually opt for monochrome beige or black outfits, try incorporating some interesting new colours into your summer dresses. For example, you could try matching top and bottom sets in bolder colours like magenta or orange. Alternatively, if you usually wear bright and colourful outfits, you can opt for more soothing pastels, beige, and whites. Linen is an ideal fabric to try out this trend.


See this as the perfect opportunity to experiment with different styles of summer dresses for women and go for hues and styles that make you look fresh and youthful.
