Let’s be honest, who wants to wear anything in a heatwave? But as social constructs would have it, upon leaving the house, one should be appropriately covered, well at least private parts anyways. In the UK, a heatwave is not our norm but if dressing stylishly is yours, then you won’t want to compromise on looking chic in the heat. Apart from staying hydrated and minding the business that pays you, here are 4 dress ideas that’ll help you keep your cool in a heatwave.
A SHIRRED DRESS
The floral print dress featured is a black shirred midi dress. A shirred dress features horizontal lines of elastic thread which draws the fabric together. This then usually stretches over parts of the body like the bust, waist and neckline for a figure-hugging silhouette, while the rest of the dress flows over your body to create an easy silhouette. The featured dress uniquely elasticated all-over for a comfy bodycon style dress but both style options are comfortable and stylish in a heatwave.
A WHITE TIERED DRESS
Whether you believe white clothing actually helps you stay cooler in hot temperatures or not, it certainly looks cool and you can find a white summer dress outfit for any budget. A white tiered flowy dress offers style and comfort, as well as requiring minimal effort dress up.
A SLIP DRESS
Slip dresses are easy to wear and style. Mini, midi, or maxi, they look great with sandals or heels and they’re effortlessly elegant. Definitely a wardrobe staple, a well-fitting slip dress will offer breathability and chic comfort whilst never compromising on style. Also, if you opt for a red slip dress, you can be the heat in heatwave.
A SMOCK DRESS
Floaty, feminine and fabulous, smock dresses offer free-flowing chic and airy elegance. With or without sleeves, they are not constricting in any way. They are loose-fitting but still very flattering and therefore the perfect dress to wear to keep your cool in a heatwave.
