Can we talk about the chiffon dress? In my opinion, it is a style that many people wear but don’t value it as much as they should be. Chiffon is one of those great fashion materials that is perfect for tops and dresses. But I will say that when it comes to a chiffon dress, I often can’t pass it up.
Over the years of buying chiffon dresses in various colors and styles, I have really learned to appreciate the style – especially in the summer. The lightweight fabric lets you breathe even if you are wearing a chiffon long sleeved maxi dress. It keeps you cool while also giving you a little coverage in the case that you go into a space that is a little cooler than outside.
I often wear a lot of my chiffon dresses for date nights. The reason why is because our date nights are usually at restaurants, bars, or experiences that are indoors and typically have the air conditioning up a little too much than you would prefer. So being able to have a dress such as the chiffon dress that I can not only layer but get in a long sleeve or maxi dress style gives the ability to wear it during the hotter summer months without feeling sweltering while you also head into places that are cooler.
There are so many styles, colors, and prints of the chiffon dress, so in this post, I want to share with you why the style is great and give you some dresses to shop yourself.
Why the Chiffon Dress IS PERFECT FOR DATE NIGHT
The chiffon dress is perfect for date night in so many ways. First, like mentioned, it helps you transition from different temperatures without you feeling uncomfortable. I feel like any time that my husband and I go out for date night in the Summer, I end up freezing once we get into the restaurant because I start out with short sleeves and then regret wearing it because it’s so cool inside. With a chiffon dress, you can easily have a long sleeved chiffon dress and not feel overheated in the summer heat. The fabric is super breathable while still giving you an extra layer for when you go into a cooler atmosphere.
Another great aspect about chiffon dresses is that they move and flow with you. If you’re going dancing for date night or maybe you just want to look glorious as the wind blow, the movement of the chiffon dress will flow along with you. And because it flows, it doesn’t stick to your skin which could be really uncomfortable for summer date nights when you are doing something outside and don’t want to feel sticky halfway through date night.
Chiffon dresses are also super easy to layer. Since the fabric isn’t clingy, even with a long sleeved dress, you can layer a cute denim jacket over the dress to give yourself some cover and a little extra warmth.
