A light, airy dress

A light and airy dress will help you keep fresh and cool in the oppressive summer heat of Rome. The secret to the dresses you pick should lie in the fabrics, you should opt for breathable fabrics and sleeveless style dresses to offer the most comfort in the heat. For example, linen and silks are amazing fabrics that will keep you cool. Not to mention, in an airy dress it’s easier to eat more and hide the bloating pasta can sometimes give us. It’s also worth noting you can’t enter the Vatican or other churches in sleeveless pieces so bring a shawl or cardigan!
