Keeping Cool In My HotSquash Dress

Today’s post is Keeping Cool In My HotSquash Dress.

Today I’m introducing a new brand to the blog that I was really excited to find out about myself. HotSquash is a British Fashion Company that specialises in clothes to keep you warm in winter and cool in the summer. Each range uses the latest hidden technology to make the fabrics work in an amazing way.

My dress today is from the Cool range at HotSquash. The dress is super lightweight and has hidden technology in the fabric to keep you fresh and dry all day. This is great for hot days like we have been having recently here in the UK. Something that’s stylish but also keeps you cool is perfect for summer.

I love the unusual mixed striped design of my dress but there are many gorgeous styles over on the store, so I highly recommend checking them out if you are looking for something lovely and stylish to wear.

I hope you like the look. I have paired my dress with some statement orange sandals and my black Tory Burch bag with the strap removed as a clutch. Let me know your thoughts below.

    Ah, I could need something like that right now. A the moment everything more than a bikini is too hot, and a bikini isn’t always appropriate, I fear.

  • Shireen

    That is an interesting concept, is it a ‘technology’ as they claimed or is it actually a type of fabric that they used? I’m heading over to read up about them, thanks for the intro, Gemma!

      I think there is something on the fabric but I’m not entirely sure, it did feel nice and fresh though when I was wearing it. I will see if that continues when I have washed it a few times. Gemma x
