As the east coast gears up for another week of scorching temperatures, it feels as if 'flowy' and 'light' are the only two words in every fashion lover's sartorial vocabulary right now. With air conditioners on in full force, being outside at all can be a doozy. But, leave it to a supermodel to give you some pointers on how to beat the heat in style. Martha Hunt recently donned a slip dress from one of Instagram's favorite brands while out in New York City on July 29, and it should shoot to the top of your shopping list as soon as possible.
Her little white number is by none other than Realisation Par, the cool-girl favorite that has been worn by the likes of Sabrina Socol and Emily Ratajkowksi this summer. The brand has become known for its selection of perfectly fitting dresses, and has also been charged with single-handedly starting the leopard-print midi skirt craze thanks to its wildly popular Naomi skirt — it’s even garnered its own Instagram account.
The Victoria's Secret angel styled her pick simply with some dainty gold hoop earrings and a pale blue crossbody bag. She finished off her outfit with tousled, undone hair and a pair of white leather sneakers by Common Projects.
To get the look for yourself, search for similar silk options — they'll keep you cool while still looking polished and put together. Hunt's own dress features a dainty strawberry pattern, but floral alternatives give off the same vibe. Or, if you're looking for a more toned-down option, brands like Olivia Von Halle make non-printed versions that aren't too sheer to wear during the day. Plus, wearing all white will accentuate your end-of-summer glow.
Think of your slip as the perfect blank canvas when it comes to accessorizing. You can go for more casual items like sneakers or a pair of flats, but the same dress can also look more formal with more elevated accessories. The trick is to wear it with a pair of shoes in a color that matches the ones highlighted within the dress. With Hunt's specific version, a red strappy sandal or mule would go perfectly with the entire ensemble.
