Dresses are some of the simplest things to wear! They're easy to coordinate and there's far less layering involved, which is a great way to combat the summer heat. Here are 5 ways to wear a few of our favorite vintage dresses for a cool Monday to Friday style.
For a work day, you want your dress to be sophisticated but still show your personality. This vintage color block sheath dress has a higher neckline and a lower hem-both keys to workplace professionalism. But the asymmetrical pattern across the front of the dress still shows your bubbly style and the coordinating jacket is great to wear in air conditioned buildings. Add some statement accessories, like this jewelry, mesh metal purse and snakeskin belt and you're ready to slay the workday.

We have to eat to live, but no one ever said that we have to look bland doing it! This floral pullover slip dress, paired with a well-worn denim button-down shirt, creates both a feminine and functional look for grocery shopping day. The dress floats and glides when it moves, making it super girly, but with the masculinity of the button-down, you don't appear overdressed. Add cute and simplistic accessories, like a straw hat to protect you from the sun at outdoor markets, or a small cross body purse for hands free shopping, and you're sure to check everything off your shopping list!

Have a date with the girls and their kiddos? Grab this vintage, button-down, silk maxi dress for a simple and chic way to dress up when all you're doing is chilling out. The longer style and the fact that it has buttons that can be left open means that you still have a functional outfit to chase down little ones, and the darker navy color means that a little spilled milk or wine won't hurt it (this silk is washable). Add some boho elements, like a hand-tooled belt and a wooden handle purse, and you're ready to step out and leave the kids with the babysitter.
