But in retrospect, we may not love what comes with this season. There’s nothing that can make us forget the scorching heat and dripping sweat. It ends up ruining almost all our cute outfit plans.
The biggest concern that Indian women often face when it comes to clothing is the fitting. Thanks to our voluptuous bodies, we refrain from wearing anything that might be too bold in our understanding of fashion. In such situations, women have always succumbed to wearing ethnic sets. They’ve picked sets that tend to hide everything that is beautiful about their bodies. The conventional meaning of a dress confined women to buy this beautiful garment. They would believe that only modern women can wear a dress. Brands like Shree have solved this problem with grace. The emergence of ethnic dress designs have provided more options in ethnic wear fashion to women.

Initially, women wore clothes that they didn’t like much only to abide by the conventions. Imagine wearing an uncomfortable ethnic set featuring stonework in the summer season! Now, thanks to countless revolutions, women demand their clothing to be comfortable. They need comfort without compromising with the quality and, of course, style.
Understanding and curating garments that will suit the modern ‘stree’ is no cakewalk. Brands like Shree have worked hard to come up with garments that have all aspects. Style, design, comfort and fitting; Shree's dresses have it all.

It is very important to understand your body type before you shop for a dress. You obviously want your cute dresses to look great on you. A flared dress is suitable for almost all body types. But we would not recommend such a fit to women with apple-shaped bodies. Do not feel disheartened though, you can always go for other styles and designs.

A flared dress falls smooth over your body, giving you immense confidence to seize the day. Here’s a friendly reminder, you are beautiful when you feel beautiful. When looking for the perfect flared dress, you can always go for the common floral or tropical prints. But if you choose to describe yourself as free spirited or the modern naari, you can also go for boho prints or fusion prints. Or you can choose prints that are symbolic of the modern Indian culture.

Styling a Flared Dress

You can style such a dress in many ways. For example, if you wish to look like a desi girl, you can always pair this dress with matching leggings or trousers. And dazzle up with subtle jewelry. But, if you wish to sport an ethnic look, you can wear it as it is, like a dress or pair it with your favorite jeans.
