Weekly Outfit – Cool Dresses for Summer Heat

As we swelter in unheard of continuous summer heat what to wear gets harder. I was thinking this morning that usually we only need a handful of work and casual outfits for really hot days because we see so few of them, especially one on top of another as we are at the moment.

A simple dress is perfect for wearing in the heat and the looser the shape the better. Natural fabrics also breath better than synthetics and therefore keep you cooler. So for work I’ve chosen a pretty floral silk dress, with a knit if you have air conditioning at work, and for weekend a cotton one. Keeping colours light makes you look fresher too.
