The Jewel-Toned Slipdress Is Cool When It's Hot

This is the time of year when we tend to whittle our summer wardrobes down to the real heavy-hitters. Whatever items are both undeniably stylish and joyously heat-proof earn top billing, and everything else gets benched until things finally cool down. If that section of your closet is looking a little sparse, and you've been schvitzing all over town in unfortunate situations (we've been there), go out and get yourself one of these.

Seen on everyone from Selena Gomez and Jessica Alba to singer Justine Skye this summer, the jewel-toned satin slipdress is heat-wave chic at its best. Worn just loose enough to skim your curves and styled your choice of footwear—anything from edgy combat boots to lady-like high heels works—the look is sexy and breezy in all the ways you need right now. Plus, should you be heading into a freezing restaurant or movie theater, this is one summer dress that actually looks good a cozy cardigan or hoodie over top. Seriously, what more could you ask for?

Here are few we love, starting well under $100. Pick up a color that lights up your skin and don't look back until the leaves start to change.
