Figuring out what to wear in end July scorching heat is no easy feat. Shorts and a tank top may seem like the ideal less is more kind of outfit to survive humidity and sweat, but don’t be fooled by the exposed skin effect. We like to believe that covering up in loose fabrics that elegantly drape over our body is more comfortable, more appealing and easier to wear than a pair of biker shorts and cropped top.

If you didn’t try replacing anything mini and skin tight with more loose-fitting garments, then you’re in for a treat. This summer we’re all about investing in well tailored, flattering dresses that work everywhere from a team meeting to a beach wedding. It’s also an unbelievably easy plan to follow when making up your mind on what to wear, and the best part is that you always look put together and dressed up.

From animal print to belted shirt dresses, we’re reliving some of our beloved recurring trends as well as seasonal staples. You’ll definitely want to get your hands on some of this summer’s best sellers – this cotton voile dress by fashion industry favorite Rhode, is the ultimate statement piece for a bohemian chic look. It comes in a variety of iterations and colors – we’re very into the tie-dye blue tones. When temperatures really rise to the almost unbearable, we turn to shirt dresses like this oneand for special occasions that require a bit more oomph we suggest flattering necklines, pleated wraps like this one, and bold hues for instant effect and minimal effort.
