Trapeze Dress (See Jane Wear)

Zara dress (sold out but similar here), See by Chloe sandals, Tory Burch sunglasses, vintage Gucci clutch
You know those days when it's so hot and humid even the lightest article of clothing seems like too much?  Enter: the trapeze dress.  It barely touches you and ever so slightly drapes off your frame--perfect for super, sticky temperatures.  Plus, it's easy to layer it; I added a denim vest to this dress today for the office.

Definitely a perfect dress for summer! I love the print too, and can imagine it'd look darling with a denim vest! :)

I have such an affinity for flowy tops and dresses. Some people can call them maternity tops all they want (cough cough my mother), they are perfect for beating the summer heat!

Looks great on you! My go to in humid weather are smock dresses from ASOS. Love them.

I love the print on this dress. The trapeze style looks great on you. It's definitely a difficult style to pull off, if you don't have a certain body type you'll end up looking unbalanced.
