The dog days of summer here and it’s gotten to the point where it’s almost too hot to wear anything at all. That’s where summer dresses come in!

Stylist Erica Wark highlights her top dress styles for summer.

Shirt dress

The shirt dress is the ultimate in comfort when it comes to dresses. This one in particular from Club Monaco is 100 per cent cotton, so it’s very lightweight and breathable; it’s also incredibly versatile. Keep it casual with a pair of cat eye sunnies and sneakers, or dress it up for evening with a clutch and stilettos.

Straight-cut midi dress

This straight cut linen blend midi dress from Addition Elle is the perfect summer dress. It’s breezy and very flattering, and believe it or not, the midi length actually makes you look taller, even if you’re petite. Pair with translucent sandals to give the illusion of even more length.

Tiered midi dress

This midi dress from Club Monaco is universally flattering because of its A-line shape, and the tiers further enhance that shape. So if you’re curvier on the bottom, this dress will skim your hips nicely, and if you have a straighter shape, the tiers will give you more volume. Go pink head-to-toe for a chic monochromatic look.

Maxi dress

The maxi dress is a flattering style on everyone and is definitely a summer wardrobe staple. Don’t be afraid to go for a bold print with your maxi like the floral print on this DVF dress from Hudson’s Bay; it makes such a statement. Wear a maxi dress by day with a straw bag and a flat sandal, or by night with statement jewellery and a pair of heels.

Off-the-shoulder mini dress

This Marciano mini dress is the perfect dress to show off your legs and keep you cool in the heat. The balloon sleeves add nice balance to this dress, in particular if you’re curvier on the bottom because the sleeves add volume on top. Keep your accessories to a minimum and let the dress do the talking.
