Heatwave-length

It’s hot. Hard to look hawt in this heat, no?

Put on something breezy and whisper thin, something white – and chill out with a few of my favourite heatwave tunes.

Chloe SS11 White Belted Dress on exshoesme.com
A dress is so easy, breezy in this weather - love this Chloe one. One piece + good shoes and you are done.
ZERO+ MARIA CORNEJO SS11 White Dress on exshoesme.com
Wear this Zero + Maria Cornejo number with flats to work. Add a long silver necklace and heels for evening.
Adam SS11 White Eyeled Shirtdress on exshoesme.com
Eyelet and laser cutting are both huge this summer. I loved this shirtdress from Adam - much more multi-functional than those eyelet halter dresses that everyone and her sister is wearing, if you have a non-fashion job.
Viktor & Rolf SS11 White Shirtdress on exshoesme.com
Who says you have to give up your style in the summer? Not Viktor and Rolf.
Y-3 SS11 White Sleeveless Shirt and Long Skirt on exshoesme.com
Y-3 cotton casuals will keep you cool and well, cool.
Akris SS11 White Vest and Long Skirt on exshoesme.com
Oh, how I adore a long skirt. And we've established that crooked things have a warm place in my heart, right? Akris SS11 accurately captures the summer me I'd like to be.
Manish Arora SS11 White Embroidered Tee and Skirt on exshoesme.com
Just because it's hot, doesn't mean you can't be haute. Manish Arora adds just the right amount of colour and embellishment to a t(ease)-shirt and skirt combination.
Bottega Veneta Chloe SS11 White Pants and Tee on exshoesme.com
Bottega does simple, perfectly - but I don't believe in summer booties. I'd keep it clean with a turquoise flat sandal or a pair of minimal strappy heels, in maybe a burst of raspberry? I'd keep the leaf-green bag, too. Nothing like a Bottega satchel!

Oh and the best way to control frizz? Wash the locks in the coolest water you can take, put on industrial-strength Kerastase serum – and a fedora, atop flat-ironed hair.

Or – just let your hair down and set your inner Diana free.
