It may be August, but the summer sun is still blazing down upon us — and that’s just how I like it. One thing that is crucial for warm weather is remaining comfortable, and wearing clothing that doesn’t make you sweat buckets. When I saw this dress at Target, I was hesitant to even try it on. I typically don’t wear billowing dresses like these, because I feel like they make you look bigger than you are and lack the structure that I appreciate in dresses. However, this dress actually has become one of my favorite items in my wardrobe, and paired with a belt around the waist it’s possible to have a nice shape!
Since the dog days of summer are still underway, I have not hesitated keeping an eye out for great summer staples — especially pieces that can be styled for the fall as well. It’s easy to add a leather jacket and some moto booties to a maxi dress for a city chic look, while you can pair a t-shirt dress with riding boots and leg warmers for a bohemian vibe. But one step at a time! First let’s make the most of the warm weather. 🙂
Below I’ve compiled some of my favorite options that pair comfort with versatility; the perfect pieces to take us through August and beyond!
