Get your guns out, get tanked
I absolutely adore the sunshine, the heat and the long days that summer brings. I dream of spending my days sprawled out on my towel by the ocean breathing in the salty air, but in reality, I am stuck in front of my laptop working from a bustling cafe/restaurant and trying to keep my hair from sticking to the back of my neck while swatting away flies. Summer in Perth is insanely beautiful, but it can also be very trying. Dressing appropriately for our heat can be such a task. Anything with the slightest of sleeves is just calling for sweat marks, synthetics are a complete and utter no-go zone, and anything too fitted is just an invitation for heat stroke.
I have found my summer companion in loose fitting tank dresses. They very much look like I have borrowed a singlet from my dad’s wardrobe, and they very much keep me cool and significantly less sweaty than their more fitted counterparts. Worn with a pair of heels, or thrown on over top my bikini, the tank dress is one of the most versatile summer pieces in my wardrobe – especially this classic black and white striped one from Glue Store. With a heavy focus on fun, street styles, Glue Store has a whole heap of casual tank dresses to suit any style and budget, from the understated (such as this one), to sporty (think basketball jersey-esque) or feminine. With so many different styles of the humble tank dress available, and their obvious convenience during the summer months, I think it is time I start building my collection!
