Warm Weather Tips: Staying Cool + Cute in the Summer

by Wolf and Whistle

What an up and down summer we've been having! From chilly, rainy weeks to absolute scorchers, the weather has certainly been a bit all over the place. 
Fortunately at W&W, we have a wide range of styles that caters to all types of weather! One of our favourites for some of the warmer weather we've been having is the Butterfly Floral Print Shirt Dress. Our design intern Kristi gives a few tips on how to style this breezy summer frock in order to look cute while still staying cool:

Tip  #1: Strappy Sandals + Sunnies

Sunglasses are an obvious must-have for warmer weather both for their practical and styling use, but strappy sandals are another great go-to in order to kee. I paired my Butterfly dress with a pair of white, braided sandals and some brown 

Tip #2: The Half Up/Half Down Hairstyle

 A quick, easy summer-chic hairstyle is a twist half up half down style. I achieved this look by putting up the top half of my hair in a rubber band and pulling in underneath the middle (quick picture tutorial here). This is a great way to keep your hair out of your face while still having a great hairstyle.

Tip #3: Style it Your Way! 

One of the best things about this shirt dress is it customization options. Depending on the weather of the day, this dress is great worn both buttoned up and tied at the waist, or a bit more breathable, with the bow loosely tied at the back and a few of the buttons undone at the top. Plus, the armholes are a looser fit so they help to keep you cool.
