Summer, we see you. You’ve got enough long days, short weeks and chilled rosé to last until September. All you need is something that won’t make you sweat to death in the process. Cue these eight light and airy dresses that’ll keep you cool through the warmest months of the year.
8 Breezy Sundresses That Won't Stick to You in the Humidity
This buttercup-yellow dress is as versatile as they come. With a highly breathable fabric, this style is appropriate for the office and perfect for an afternoon of shopping in the Design District. Play with shoes and accessories to customize the look.
Breakfast on the beach? A comfortable cover-up? Sunset dinner plans? This look is perfect for all of it. Plus, it adds some extra UV coverage for those shoulders.
Two-in-one Midi Dress
This dress can adapt to almost any situation. It comes in five different colors and can be worn as a halter or strapless. You’re basically getting two dresses for the price of one. Total win.
This V-neck dress combines all of our favorite things: ruffled sleeves, a flared skirt and adorable embroidery. Not to mention it looks (and feels) like a million bucks at H&M pricing.
Flowy Tent Dress
This is the ultimate look for when you’ll be outside all day. From brunch to a picnic to wine tasting, you’ll be dressed for the occasion. Plus, the gauzy fabric will camouflage any wrinkles or sweat marks when it’s really a scorcher.
Ruffled Wrap Dress
The right kind of long dress can do double duty. Pick something in a light, airy fabric: It’s breezy and bohemian during the day and chic when paired with a jacket and scarf at night.
Nothing says summer like some strategic peekaboo placements. What’s especially great about this trend is that it helps you keep cool even if you opt for a long silhouette. Plus, it practically screams brunch at the St. Regis.
Button-up Maxi Dress
“Sexy” doesn’t always mean “form-fitting.” You can opt for something loose and sexy by pairing a boho silhouette with a high slit. The spice of the slit also eliminates the need for heels, even at night. Oh, and it’s also breathable and perfect for long walks in the sand.
