Summer is here and I am hot. And when I’m hot, I do not want to wear uncomfortable clothing. (Ok I lied, I never want to wear uncomfortable clothing.) The mere thought of wearing pants to work on a 90-degree day makes me drip in sweat. So I’m not wearing pants this summer. That sounds bad, but instead I’m only wearing dresses. Light, airy, adorable dresses that will keep me cool while also making me look cool—but not “too cool” that I’m gonna get a call from HR. (Because as much as I want to feel air everywhere, my coworkers don't want to see my backside—or 75 percent of my skin.)
So if you’re hot like me, let those legs be free and stock your wardrobe with the most flattering dresses of the season. Stay cool, my friends.
Anthropologie Summer Breeze Dress
The 90’s called and they want their sundress back–but they can’t have it because I’m wearing this adorable (and extremely flattering!) number non-stop.
Lou & GREY Signaturesoft Swing Dress
Swing into summer with this ridiculously soft dress. I promise this will be the most comfortable thing you wear all season.
GAP Sleeveless Pintuck Shirtdress
What could be better than a comfortable, flattering dress? Nothing. And that is exactly what this boho chic dress is.
GAP Linen Sleeveless Strip Shirtdress
All over stripes is all over the runway this summer and his stripy, loose dress is a must for your summer work wardrobe. Plus, it’s very lightweight, making it perfect for those scorchers.

Pops of color make this summer shift stand out in the office. Wear with your favorite sandals for a casual look or dress up easily with heels.
