Today’s post is not about fancy stuff; it’s about what to wear when it’s hot. All of these dresses are breathable and cool and are items you will want to reach for time and time again. All dresses picked today hit right above the knee to a couple inches above the knee (remember these models are TALL!). Some of these are perfectly casual and some will carry you through the work week. Here you go, our top 10. (Of course if you ask us next week, we may have a different list as we’re finicky that way.)

Plus size Nordstrom Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique, $138. This dress is so great as it keeps your eye moving and is flattering, but definitely is for the woman not afraid of bright colors! The customer reviews say that the dress runs big and that it’s better for those plus size ladies who have a large bust, as the top runs big. But, you can have it altered also… Click here.
Rebecca Taylor, $250. For the gal who can wear the crew neck, this dress is great for showing off your shoulders and slenderizing your waist. Made of cotton and flax, this dress and summer go hand in hand. Click here.
