4 Heatwave Dresses If You Don’t Want To Bare Your Body

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
