Now that summer is officially here, you’re all probably wondering what the most fashionable way to stay cool is. We all know that the best way to avoid breaking out in a sweat just from sitting outside is to wear as little clothing as possible, but we must still look presentable to be out with our families and friends. The best thing to wear on the hottest summer days is a dress. Dresses come in all lengths and cuts and can be easily worked into your wardrobe.
One of the most popular types of dresses this season are High-Low Dresses. This kind of dress is short in the front but longer in the back so it shows off some skin, but still covers you up at the same time. The best kind of shoe to wear with this dress is a pair of wedged sandals.

Another type of dress is a Maxi Dress. Even though maxi dresses are very long, you can still stay cool in them depending on what material your dress is made out of. If you’re shorter, you may want to wear this type of dress with a wedged heel so that it does not drag on the ground too much. Sometimes accessorizing it with a belt will give it a different look.

If you’re comfortable showing off your legs, a mini dress is always a good choice for hot summer days. The best thing about short dresses is that there are so many different kinds of them that are compatible with different body types. Here are the different cuts that are available for short dresses:
A-Line/Skater dresses are my personal favorites. They’re cute and flowy and look great with any kind of shoe you want. You can wear this kind of dress with heels, sandals, or even sneakers like Keds. I love wearing mine with a jean or leather jacket for when it cools down at night.

The shift dress follows the currently popular 60s Mod trend. Wear it with chunky bangles and platform shoes with an up hair-do.

This type of dress is perfect for parties and going out with your friends at night. You could wear it with a pair of heels or fancy sandals. If you wear a solid colored bodycon dress, it’s totally acceptable to over accessorize with lots of jewelry!

There’s no better time to wear a dress than summer time. Be trendy and try wearing a high-low dress or stick to the traditional short, A-Line cut. Regardless of what type of dresses you choose to wear, you’ll have an instant outfit with only one piece of clothing!
