This past Wednesday, June 21, was the official start of summer, which means we have a lot of hot days ahead of us, especially here in the South. Are you ready to dress to beat the heat during the dog days of summer? Check out our Web Exclusive New Arrivals for comfy, lightweight summer clothes, intimates, and accessories you can wear right now. These “buy now, wear now” styles are exclusive to our website, so they are only available online, and not in our catalog.
Here are my top 5 picks for summer from our latest Web Exclusive New Arrivals:
1) Comfort Snap Front Bra by Care Apparel Industries®
Whether you are relaxing at home or sleeping at night, this ultra-comfortable bra is made of soft, breathable cotton (with a touch of spandex for stretch) to keep you cool on the hottest days. The snap front makes it a cinch to put on, and there is no underwire to dig into your skin!
2) Pacific Breeze Two-Tone Ribbon Hat by Sun ‘N’ Sand®
Whether I am walking my dog or reading by the pool, I like to protect my face from the summer sun. Crafted of polyester ribbon in a two-toned striped design, this oversized sun hat is perfect for outdoor excursions with its large, floppy brim. An inside sizer allows you to adjust it for the perfect fit, and you can fold it up for easy packing.
3) Butterfly Printed Scarf Poncho by Zoe Madison
I can’t wait to try on this sheer summer poncho with its delightful butterfly print. This versatile piece can be worn two ways: either poncho style with the buttons down the center, or as a shrug with the buttons along the shoulder. I plan on layering it over a tank top or camisole with a pair of jeans or linen pants.
4) Crochet Detail Maxi Skirt by Kaktus®
Made of breezy crinkle rayon, this long, flowy tiered maxi skirt is accented with dyed-to-match crochet trim and a self-tie belt, giving it a casual “boho” look. Lined halfway down in 100% cotton for modesty, you don’t have to worry about wearing a slip with it. I think it’s super cute with a simple white tee or a sleeveless shirt.
5) V-Neck Cotton Lounge Dress by Saybury
Nothing beats an all-natural cotton woven dress on a steamy summer day. Featuring an all-over floral border print, this dress was made for lounging in a hammock under some shade. The easy pull-over styling, full tiered skirt, and convenient side-seam pockets make for effortless hot-weather dressing.
