The color of vintage summer gowns can be just as important as the fabric or the cut. In those summer months, keep the color of the dress light to attract less heat.

Coverage doesn’t mean entrapment. When you want a defined Victorian look, a frock like this Edwardian gown will do nicely. You have coverage on your arms and neck. The length of a typical gown is included, but the embroidered translucent overlay is deceivingly thin and light.

For the dramatic, take a blooming skirt with little layering. A structured skirt gives off the formal feel without the layering underneath. Many celebrity gala-goers choose this type of gown. It implies the drama and length while keeping the dress simple underneath.
