On hot summer days it is best to slip on an easy fitting dress like this Simply Vera Vera Wang sheath. Although the dress is simple (no pun intended), it has a lot of strong elements, including tonal color blocking, a cascade and a black belt. This dress is one easy piece that does not need many accessories. I think that is the best way to dress when it is smoldering hot outside!
