With the summer season, comes the heat! Sometimes a little unbearable when the humidity adds 10 degrees to the temperature. BUT, I have a fashion idea for all you ladies looking for something that you can wear in this heat that will keep you cool (other than a bikini!).
Its a maxi dress. They were really big last summer and trust me, they haven't gone ANYWHERE. I work at Old Navy and we have several different styles and so many colours! There is one style we have that comes in a bright pink, black and a green flower pattern, its a jersey knit fabric and it is the most comfortable thing you will put on your body. I bought the green one and trust me, I'm not one for flowery patterns but this dress looks uber cute. I'll upload a pic of it tomorrow on me but for now I'll add our O.N. picture. Funny enough I had a customer the other day come into the fitting room with the dress and I was gushing about how much I loved it and her reply made me laugh so hard. She said "someone tweeted about it being a must have this summer so I came first chance I got" and this was NOT a twenty-something woman. I was impressed.
Now I know some people don't understand how a MAXI dress can be comfortable in the blazing heat, but let me tell you (as a past hater) that the reason they are so comfy is that
a) they are only tight around the bust, which we can all live with considering we wear bras (almost) everyday
b) they just flow out from the bust down
c) when you walk, you create your own breeze which cools down your legs
Now ladies, I'm not suggesting you go lay in the sun with this outfit, but if its hot out and you are heading to the mall its best of both worlds, keeps you cool outside, and when you enter the ice cold building you dont freeze to death like you would in itty bitty shorts and a tube top!
You can get these dresses anywhere (but of course I'm going to suggest coming to Old Navy if you like this dress I'm posting up! You can check out our other dresses at oldnavy.ca/com depending where you live! ;)
