As temperatures soared into the 90s the other day, women kept it sensible when it came to clothing.
The dress has come back in a big way. A number of women were wearing classy black summer dresses in cotton or linen, often more conservatively cut than this one (knee-length or just above the knee), mostly sleeveless or with cap sleeves. Some had beautifully tailored necklines or waistlines; I even saw pleats. Variations of the safari dress are also in, and splashes of color, like this wonderful green.
Flat sandals and ballerina flats continue to be the footwear of choice, for commuting at least. Hair is simple, too. Celia approves.
