The last few weeks have been nothing short of a heatwave at the Jersey Shore and with weather temps reaching the high 80s and 90s it may be hard to find a chic outfit that will keep you cool at the same time. For me personally when the weather gets that hot all I want to wear is a bathing suit and head to the beach, but unfortunately work and responsibilities stop that want from becoming a reality.
In order to stay cool, beat the summer heat and still look put together and effortlessly stylish, I go straight to lightweight, breezy maxi dresses. In the wonderful world of fashion, I find chic maxi dresses to be the one stop shop to an effortless put together look because once you put the dress on you don’t need a whole lot more. Accessorize how you see fit, slide on a pair of sandals, your go-to sneaks or heels then throw on your favorite shades and you’re ready to head out the door.
Some of my favorite maxi or high low summer dresses are also my most affordable and almost always garner me a compliment or two. The dress I’m wearing above is old, but I linked 20 dresses below for you to shop that won’t break the bank and will keep you cool for the rest of the heatwave or summer, whichever ends first.
