Beat The Heat With Summer’s Hottest Dresses

There is no better way to beat the heat with the season’s hottest dress trends.  It’s the easiest way to stay cool and look stylish.

Shirt Dress

The shirt dress is timeless, classic and never goes out of style. This long-sleeved version is both sustainable and ethically made!  When it’s a neutral colour, like white, you can treat the shirt dress like a blank canvas.  Accessorize with a fabulous belt, a wide-brimmed hat and some circular sunnies to elevate the look and change the silhouette.

Puffed Sleeve Dress

The puffed sleeve is the trend you’ve been hearing about all season! A beautiful wildflower print is a great pattern for a puffed sleeve dress since it’s all about being feminine and romantic.  This dress has a more subtle puffed sleeve so it’s a great way to try the trend and a high-slit detail keeps it modern.

Tiered Dress

This stunning tiered dress is made in Canada with the fabrics sourced in Ghana.  It’s hand-crafted in a beautiful colour palate with a deep -v detail. Keep the accessories minimal and let this dress shine!

Slip Dress

My tip for finding your ideal slip dress is to size-up because then it drapes better (and less likely to leave you feeling exposed).  This dress is actually super versatile, and you can make the look more casual (but equally chic) by adding a white t-shirt underneath.
