Warm weather dressing can be a little unnerving, especially after spending months all covered up. But mid-June’s the time to acclimate to lighter weight clothing and less of it. Get right with what you’ve got to work with whether it’s pale legs, soft arms or a few extra pounds. Focus on what’s great, camouflage what isn’t, and let the rest be. If you haven’t put in for a new dress yet, now’s the time to grab one (or more). They’re one of the easiest ways to look stylishly cool and summery. Here are some of our favorites from all over the web!
1. What goes up must come down. It was only a matter of time before the shortest minis were displaced by their exact opposite. Maxis tend to look out of place at the office, but a long lean white linen shirt dress looks like a summer classic in the midst of sun and sea. This one is from Spiegel. Wear it as a beach cover up, or belted to stroll through the shops along the coast. $109.
