Welcoming Summer in Style

1951

Ah, the heat of summer. Life is languid, sultry, and hot. You can look hot too. There's no need to resort to shorts and a tank top. Take your cue from these lovely ladies and wear a dress that's a bit bare in all the right places. Choose a natural fiber like cotton, linen, or rayon that will breathe and help to keep you cool. Add an accessory like a shawl or wide brimmed hat to protect you from direct sunlight. Don't forget the sunscreen! Ah, that's better.

You are going into summer and I am leaving it. It makes me so sad. There is definitely a chill in the air now.
Love that last dress by the way. Do you know what the designer was?

Love the 1950 dress. I so want a Hattie Carnagie (sp?) Hawaiian print dress from the 50's.

Wow - such beautiful dresses. I like them all, even though the first one looks faintly like something we wore in the mid eighties doesn't it?

A gorgeous selection of summer frocks. Love the backless dress dating 1950's.
