There are lots of different madras fabrics on the market, including light pastels that look perky and fresh when made into short dresses and two piece skirt and top combos. Although madras is best-known for distinctive plaids, there are even madras checks, stripes, prints and seersuckers. When you think of a flirty summer dress, you want something that has a nice drape but is still comfortable to wear. Madras offers that as well as instant recognition that says you're ready for a trip to the marina or the country club.
