Reitmans Short-Sleeve Tiered Midi Dress.

Reitmans Short-Sleeve Tiered Dress

An effortless, toss-on dress, this long style from the Montreal-headquartered company Reitmans sees a lightweight T-shirt material elevated with tiers and a split neckline. We love the fresh feeling the green hue gives the swingy, stretch knit material. 

Veronica Beard Lex Dress.

The button-front shirt dress is a classic silhouette that can take you from work to the weekend. This design from Veronica Beard sees the style staple taken up a few notches with a bold red hue, polka-dot print, and a luxurious stretch silk material. Plus, the subtle ruching at the waist adds form and fit. You won’t want to take it off.

Paper label slip dress

Paper Label Shay Slip Dress

Slipping into a slip dress is a safe summer style bet. Pair it with sneakers and a denim jacket for weekend errands, sandals and a summer hat for weekend wine tasting, and strappy heels and an eye-catching clutch for a special event. We love this smooth, satiny number from the Vancouver-based brand Paper Label, which features a v-shaped neckline and a straight fit.

Babaton Statuette Dress.

Delivering all the Audrey Hepburn vibes we could hope for, this off-the-shoulder, little black dress from Aritzia is the epitome of high-low elegance. It hits all the high points with its fit-and-flare fit, while the Reluxe Jersey — an ultra-soft material featuring wood-based fibres — adds a relaxed, unfussy feel.

Melanie Lyne Abstract Print Smocked Waist Dress.

Another maxi-dress design that can play double duty, dressing up or down depending on what you wear it with, the short-sleeved style is also blissfully breathable thanks to an airy, 100 per cent rayon material.
