When the weather takes a turn for the hot, hot, hot (fingers crossed it actually happens, I mean, does anybody remember winter?), societal requirements mandate you should be wearing clothes, but I’d rather be… not, not, not. Seriously, I love the warm weather, but the idea of sticky shorts and tank tops has me sweating already. It may not be so bad when you’re lounging poolside, but think New York City in the summer time, and by New York City I mean the subway. Ah, public transportation — for the low price of $2.25, you, too can have your perspiring thighs stuck to a metal bench or, even better, an equally swampy stranger. Fun! (No, terrible.) I don’t consider myself over-the-top girly, but dresses suddenly become a whole lot more attractive when the thought of putting my legs through pants makes me want to hop into the Hudson. I’m foreseeing loose, easy (/lazy), short, diaphanous, versatile, and white as the characteristics I’ll be desperately seeking in frocks this summer, and now’s the time to stock up before everyone beats you to it. After the jump, ten white dresses I can’t wait to get my (train-hopping, A/C-craving) hands on.
