How on earth do you beat the heat and yet stay stylish this summer? In vintage of course! I've picked my top 10 vintage summer dresses for staying cool this summer, they range from 60s maxi dresses, to cool classic 50s sundresses and original 1940s day dresses. Which is your favorite? I particularly love the orange outfit which I think would look amazing on Lady Edith from Downton Abbey (even though its vintage 1940s rather than 1920s!) 1.
