With warmer weather upon us, it’s officially time to start putting your summer wardrobe to good use! The summer season is filled with a range of fashion-forward pieces to shop, but nothing is quite as effortless and easy-to-wear as the perfect summer dress. Style, beauty, and lifestyle influencer Sharron Clear known as @arrayoffaces on IG has given us the inside scoop on the best summer pieces to beat the heat in! Here are her top picks for affordable styles that we can’t wait to wear to work, vacations, and beyond.
Flowy, Free, & Fashionable
Maxi dresses are perfect for busy moms on the go. They’re cool and easy to throw on for something relaxing and cute to drop the kids off at school, go to work, or church. The less fabric you have touching your body, the more comfortable you will feel. A flowy maxi dress will keep you cooler than a pair of shorts and a tank.
Show Some Skin But Make Sure You Load Up On SPF
Summer is the perfect season to show some skin and embrace trends like off-the-shoulder dresses. Off-the-shoulder dresses are loss fitting and you don’t feel too restrained. This makes for cooler days and is perfect for running errands in the summer heat

“I love skinny straps because they’re less attached to your body,” says Clear. Many of these styles have super thin fabric which is great for summer. You can also wear this dress to work and pair with a cute cardigan.
Nothing Wrong With A Little Leg Action
Dresses that have a slit front or side are perfect for looking sexy and cool at the same time. A chic floral print adorns this summer-ready dress great for any daytime party, date night, or hanging with the girls.
