The weather is unbelievably hot for the whole country, so how are you dressing to stay cool, when you can't avoid going out? I have tons of sundresses, lots of lightweight skirts and tanks that are becoming my summer wardrobe very quickly. I find dresses and skirts much cooler than shorts or capris. I do wear them without hose, and love my summer sandals!

I've always been partial to flowing skirts with tank or cap-sleeve tops, and tea-length and maxi sundresses; the air circulation is better in hot climates, whether dry or humid.

I have a short knit shrug that works great for buildings with AC that is on the chilly side. I took it with on vacation and used it a lot when we were at shows or in restaurants.

When I worked, I had to have a space heater under my desk in the summer, and a heavy cardigan!

That is why I have a lot of camisole type tops with the shelf bra built in. I recently bought some tops that have a built in bra that have a tie strap from a ring, and you probably could tuck that inside if you wanted strapless.
