Vests are in this season!
If you work in an environment that requires formal workwear, but you hate wearing suits, vests are a great way to look appropriate without getting a heatstroke in our climate.
Depending on the fabric and cut of the vest, you can pair them with anything from shorts to pants to dresses.
Marc by Marc Jacobs , Nanette Lepore
Try a fitting, structured vest in a dark colour like these for work. Wear them with shirts or blouses.
Jak & Rae , Theory , Delias
For a casual look, pair a vest with a tank top or a tee over skirts, jeans or shorts.
Find your dress too plain on it's own? Wear a vest over it.

How does one stay cool in the heat? Take a cue from these celebs in their tunic dresses.
If you're worried about showing too much leg, add on a pair of leggings/tights, like this :
These striped tights may be a bit radical for some, so plain ones will do just fine.
Here's a few more I found :
Dress - AKA ; Sandals - Kristen Lee ; Shades - DITA
Dress - Lewis Cho ; Sandals - Next
