I don’t like to complain about the weather, because when was the last time we had such a solid summer in the UK (2004, that’s when). However, I’ll conceded dressing in a heatwave is not easy, especially when you can’t bear the touch of anything on your skin.
Obviously, in an ideal world, I would just wear a bikini everyday, but I think that would raise a few eyebrows in the office. Instead, I’ve found the next best thing: the slip dress.
I can’t even begin to explain how much I love it. It’s paired back, comfortable, comes in various flattering lengths (I’m a fan of the midi), and the best thing about it is that it feels like a light breeze on your skin.
Lucky for me, the high-street’s offering is second to none this season. The likes of Mango, Zara and freshly-landed-in-the-UK Realisation Par and Reformation have options in virtually every print. My preference is a floral dress, perhaps with a little bit of lace, 90s style.

As well as being ultra comfortable (especially if you go sans bra), it’s incredibly versatile too. I wear mine with a flat sandal, but I’ve seen influencers pair theirs with Superga trainers or glam heels.
The choice is yours.
