A Perfect Dress For This Blistering Heat

This fun number from Acne will keep you as cool as possible.

The best way to survive the brutal summer heat is by paring down the number of layers you have to wear to a bare minimum.

Sleeveless dresses are about as minimal you can get come late July and August, and they are my daily uniform this time of year. I love the wild and whimsical print of this Acne dress and the lean and slightly boxy silhouette (fitted clothing in this heat is entirely unacceptable).

You can’t help but pity the men in their suit jackets and pants going to work while you saunter breezily by.
