As temperatures soar, it becomes increasingly difficult to discern what to wear, especially since so many July events are held outdoors. From The Peachtree Road Race to the Atlanta Street Food Festival at Piedmont Park to Sunset Concerts at Atlanta Botanical Garden, the month is packed with festive happenings. To avoid unsightly amounts of sweating and chafing, it’s wise to choose a breezy dress and completely shirk the discomfort of denim and other confining fabrics. We’ve put together a fantastic list of dresses from Calypso St. BarthJ. McLaughlin and W. Port that will quickly become your summer wardrobe staples. Even if you aren’t vacationing at the beach this season, you can don a new frock for one of July’s festivities. These versatile looks can work for a handful of outdoor events:
