Mums, Grans and gals on the go needn’t wear jeans, cropped pants and shorts all Summer long — they can wear skirts and dresses too. A few weeks ago I covered skirts, and today’s all about the dress ensemble. As long as the dresses are casual and non-restricting, you’ll feel comfortable and carefree. This relaxed and breezy outfit is fab on a hot day if you aren’t in air conditioning.
Here are the components:
- Casual Dress: Woven cottons, cotton blends, linens and jersey knits are best. Think fit and flares, high-low tank dresses and roomy sheaths with an elastic waist. Short boxy shirt dresses and shifts are another option. Solids and patterns are both great. Choose a length that works for you.
- Sandals: Throw in a pair of Summer sandals, like a tan ankle strap wedge or gladiator. If closed shoes are your preference, choose D’Orsay or pointy toe flats.
- Tote or Crossbody Bag: Both options are hands-free.
- Hat and Eyewear: A fedora or straw hat keeps off the sun, and sunnies protect your eyes. Of course, these items are optional. Finish off the outfit with jewellery as desired.
It doesn’t get easier, or breezier, than pulling on a dress and a pair of sandals for Summer. Add a bag, the odd accessory, and you’re done. Who’s in?
