I don’t know about you, but when it is this hot, especially this heatwave, I can’t wear sleeves or cover my legs. However, I won’t do shorts or scrappy vests (nothing wrong with this but you have to be a bean pole) – it has to be a dress. There is something wonderfully freeing about the sun shining that makes you forget your foibles and just get it all out. That’s until the sun goes down and all of a sudden I feel a bit self conscious flashing my bingo wings in a strappy vest and showing off my thread veins to all and sundry in a short dress.
So, what to wear to stay confident the whole day? I have found a few bits that look and feel cool without flashing too much flesh.
A linen shirt dress is a low key stylish way to keep cool
An off shoulder dress is universally flattering and this long length maxi will hide any cankles.
Denim is always a good idea and light weight denim fabric chambray is a perfect summer alternative to heavier denims and this sleeve and length is still feline with nipped in waist.
A strategically placed knot below on this fabulous T shirt dress, will draw the eye away from any area you don’t want the eye to go to!
Hope this has helped inspire a few purchases. The heat is here to stay for a while so worth investing in these classic pieces.
Stay cool ladies xx
