Staying Cool While Looking Hot: The Best Dresses to Beat the Heat this Summer
One of the best things about summer is that all you have to do is throw on a cute dress, add some sandals and you are ready to head out looking good and staying cool. Now, while there are many different style dresses that you can choose from for summer, there are a few that you definitely need in your closet because they will always keep you looking smokin', while keeping you feeling cool and comfortable.
Long Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is perfect when you want to wear something that is very relaxed and something lightweight that will never stick to you no matter how sticky it is outside. This kind of dress is able to simply drape along your body, keeping you comfy while still giving you some super sizzling style. For this year, stick with a maxi dress that has a bold pattern displayed on it to really give your look a fun lift. Stick with either something floral or something organic so that it gives off a very feminine but breezy style. Add a pair of t-strap sandals and some wood bangles and head out for a Margarita with your friends in style.
Summer Cocktail Dress
While black is always the “go to” cocktail dress, this season spice up your look a little bit by wearing one in a fantastic shade of color! Wear a short cocktail dress in a bright blue or a hot pink to give your look a sassy appeal that is ideal for the hot summer nights. Add some bold accessories such as a large gem necklace for a statement piece and a cute clutch that adds some contrast to the outfit, such as one in a colorful snakeskin print. Wear a pair of nude heels to keep your dress the main event and the focus on your wardrobe.
Breezy Beach Dress
When you are heading to the beach, you need something that is very relaxed and comfortable that will keep your style very laid back but still extremely fashionable. The perfect dress to wear on the beach is something that offers you a little room so you never feel too restricted, such as a tank dress. What’s better to wear to the beach than a long tank? It is stylish and will keep you very cool, and can easily be dressed up when you are heading over to the bar by the beach, by tying a braided belt around your waist and adding a Fedora hat.
This year beach dresses couldn’t be hotter, which means you will be able to keep your sexy style while remaining cool even on the hottest days!
