Beat the Heat! New Lightweight Tunics

Summer is here and the temperature is rising. It’s hard enough for anyone to keep cool and comfortable, especially women of a certain *ahem* age… Let’s talk about the dreaded HOT FLASH. You may just be sporting an extra layer of you (more to love) and that can make you hot, too. This is the one part of mid life that women struggle with all the time. Diane Kennedy has designed some perfect pieces to help with these very issues. Bamboo is one of Nature’s wonders. You may already know that it’s lightweight, breathes beautifully and has wicking qualities to help keep you dry, and it’s as soft as butter. Could it get any cooler? It can!

We’re talking about a lightweight fabric that we’ve added to our lineup. The combination of Organic cotton and bamboo has created the softest, airiest and lightest fabric ever! We have some key pieces that we thought you needed to know about. We want to help keep you cool and look amazing doing it.

The number one tip repeated over and over is to wear layers and make sure the last layer looks good enough to keep you feeling comfortable but also looking great.  We can’t say enough about the bamboo Clever Cami as a starting point. This cami works so well as a first layer with the perfect combination of fit and flow and isn’t the least bit see through, even in white.

It’s a Shirt! It’s a Jacket! It’s actually both! The Incline Shacket is the real key to staying cool this summer. This most versatile piece does double duty. Layer it over our Clever Cami, it looks amazing unbuttoned and layered over or buttoned up as a shirt on its own.  It’s feather light and great for protecting you from the sun at the beach or keeping you cool at the office.

The Tilt Tunic is another DK take on a simple t-shirt. This asymmetrical tunic is just the thing to help you keep your cool. It has a slimming V neckline, short sleeves, and a pocket for your phone. A little bit of swing built into the front seam line gives extra room across the stomach while a steep slant in the hem line adds that edgy, urban touch. It pairs perfectly with the Incline Shacket, too.
