After a few scorching weeks in Sydney, we’ve reached that tipping point when it’s so damn hot that we’d rather be naked than think of putting together an outfit involving pants. Obviously, that’s not really a work-appropriate option so we’re turning to the next best thing: summer frocks that’ll stand the heat and look cute.
In the slideshow ahead, we bring you 11 super chic and versatile options. There are boho-inspired floral numbers from Tigerlily and Spell, something slinky and sexy from Dion Lee, and one bold, beautiful and backless style from Australian label Camilla. Whatever you’re after, you’re sure to find a one that can take you from a Saturday brunch to last-minute cocktails. Just add sandals, sneakers or heels and some jewellery for a winning, sweat-proof look.
