Sometimes during the summer it gets hot. Too hot. Too hot to wear clothing, and just the thought of putting on pants makes me sweat. Well, good thing ethereal dresses are in this season. I got this one from Urban Outfitters, but just about every store has their own version of the white, easy summer dress.
As much as I love it… it’s not exactly a tomboy-friendly kind of dress. But there are certain heat waves that makes even the tommy-est of tomboys throw away their button-ups. And while shorts and muscle tanks are a great hot weather outfit, nothing compares to not having pants on. So here are my suggestions to making it feel like you, and less like a princess-fairy that should be frolicking in a meadow.
Look 1: Add some accessories. Stay away from heels and floral crowns, instead add some black touches to give the dress some edge. I went for a pork pie hat, a straw hat could work too if it’s too hot for felt. I also added a black lace bra and my favourite black loafers.
Look 2: I chose to go for an easy sport vibe by adding plain white sneakers and some sunnies. It’s easy and effortless but adds just the right amount of non-girlyness to offset the dress’s nature.
