HOW hot has it been?

I don't know about you, but when it's really hot, the only thing I can wear is a light dress.

I can't do the numerous articles of clothing; just give me a cool cotton, rayon or silk dress.

There are plenty of dresses out there, this is the season for dresses and they come in all shapes and styles.

Shorter dresses are more on trend now, but maxis are still around and they do suit some of us more than the shorter dresses.

My favourite dresses are the lovely light silk and cotton ones in bold colours.

Dress them up with heels or dress them down with sandals; they are perfect for all events in this hot weather.

We're in for a long hot summer, so here's to short cool dresses!
