There are plenty of things to love about summer—holidays, long days, time at the pool. But in much of the country, that comes along with hot temperatures. If you’re hanging out at the beach, that’s not such a big deal, but most of us have to work for a living. Throw in a business trip, and the fun can go right out the door. Luckily, there are plenty of great dresses that look professional, travel well, and keep you cool.
The three dresses featured here are from Boden, Old Navy, and Lands End, and are all on sale. They also all have sleeves, so no need for a cardigan. That makes getting dressed in the morning (and packing) a breeze!
The Casual Jersey Dress from Boden is super cute, plus it is incredibly comfortable and will travel well. Jersey from Boden is heavier than most places, so it will hang really nicely. It also got great reviews on their site. Bustier ladies may want to add a cami. It’s available in Hollyhock (my favorite) plus other prints and solids, 20% off right now.
The Lands’ End Knit Drape Yoke Dress has a ladylike cut and a pretty draped neckline. Wear it with the included fabric belt, or switch to a contrasting belt of your own for more interest. Again, the reviews are good, and it’s available in four colors for an incredible $17.99.
Old Navy has had a ton of cute dresses this year, and the Fit and Flare is no exception. I like the stripes, but there is still a solid option available. The cut is incredibly flattering, and can be dressed up or down. Available for $14.97 in limited sizes.
Pack a few dresses like these and your suitcase is ready to go! Don’t forget the important accessories:
- Nude flats
- Cute bag (like this adorable yellow vegan bag from Namaste or the Lo & Sons OG bag in Sky Blue)
- Bike shorts for travel days
