STYLE: Beat the Heat with a Casual Summer Dress

Right now, a lightweight and easy-to-wear dress can be the difference between being uncomfortably sweaty, or not. With this heatwave among us, hot weather means wearing clothing that is light, airy, and not too tight. I love a chambray shirt-dress or loose tank dress, but currently, I’m obsessed with this of-the-shoulder style that’s so cool and comfy, I never want to take it off.

As the mercury rises, we want clothes that are less restrictive. Casual dresses are the way to go. I love to wear my off-the-shoulder style with flats, especially with these lightweight sneakers, but the same dress can be instantly elevated with a wedge or heel. A pastel clutch also adds a fun pop of colour. No matter my summer schedule, I’m often reaching for that casual summer dress because once you throw it on, your outfit is virtually complete.
