The Best Summer Dresses For An Intense Workout or Relaxing Girls Night Out

Clothing has the ability to transform us. If you have ever watched a child play dress up, you have seen something as simple as a towel can transform them into a superhero. The same concept applies to clothes that make you feel great. 


Clothes can alter our moods. If you wear clothes that make you feel uncomfortable, it is unlikely you will feel your best. Dressing well is important for both feeling empowered and building self-confidence, and it can be an exciting form of self-expression. 


When it comes to wearing a dress in the summer, moisture-wicking clothing can be key to your survival. Another key element to summer clothing is built-in sun protection. We want to know that we can look great in clothes that have built-in sun protection and won’t completely stick to our bodies if we start to sweat. 


Even when working out, you still want clothes that fit well, help keep moisture at bay, and are odor resistant. Dresses shouldn’t be excluded from that. 

The Summer Dress (A Versatile Fit)

We all need a staple summer dress. If there is one thing we have learned in all our years of shopping, it is the power of great staple pieces. We love clothes that are breathable, versatile, and can carry us from day to night. 


Staple clothing pieces can be different for each person, as we each have our own personal style. Ultimately, staple pieces of clothing are items that you feel great in and gravitate toward time and again. You likely have five white t-shirts hanging in our closet as we speak. 

Comfort & Fashion

Wearing clothing that makes you feel good about yourself can give you an edge you didn’t even know you needed. When thinking of a summer dress, you want something both comfortable and fashionable. If you put on clothing that looks great, you can almost guarantee your mood will be a reflection of how you feel!


There is something amazing about a dress that you can dress up or down. If you are looking for a dress that you can take from comfort to classy, we are sure you will love the Varsity T-Shirt Dress.


Made with versatility in mind, this dress is lightweight, with a comfortable, boxy fit and crazy soft fabric. It’s moisture-wicking, plus it has UPF 50 sun protection. From its stylish dropped shoulder sleeves to the perfectly placed pockets, this dress is a summer dream. 

Why You Need a Dress That Can Take You From a Stroll to the Bar

Gone are the days when it was necessary to have a full wardrobe for the day and a separate one for night. Shoppers have become much savvier when it comes to choosing clothes that can serve more than one purpose. 


Everyone needs a dress that can take you from a casual stroll to a night out. This can come in handy, especially when you’re traveling. Clothes that can be taken to the next level with a shoe change or accessory swap are essential. The right dress will be just as at home with your favorite sneakers as with a pair of heels, and pair just as perfectly with your mini backpack as it does with a clutch. 


When you’re on the go, you want to look cute no matter what you’re doing. Choosing a dress like the Varsity T-Shirt means you can go from sightseeing or running errands to dinner and drinks. Pop a little extra color on your lips, change your shoes, and you are ready for your next adventure. 

Varsity T-Shirt Dress

A soft, lightweight dress that can be worn in any season is right up our alley. As we go through and try to purge our closet of clothes that go out of style, this is one dress that never will. 


We can’t tell you how many times we have made impulse clothing purchases that last one season. The Varsity T-Shirt Dress can easily transition to any season. With that lived-in feel, this is a dress you will want to wear all year round. 

It Works In Every Season

Grab your cutest fall booties or sneakers and tights, and you can transform your favorite summer dress into a fall staple outfit. Layering your clothes and transitioning key pieces from each season can be an inexpensive way to revamp your wardrobe and get the most use out of the pieces you have.


The Varsity T-Shirt dress is one of those timeless pieces that you can add just about anything to and make it look good. You can pair it with a jean jacket and sneakers for cooler weather. Add your favorite sandals and beach tote, and you’re ready for a summer day. 


With timeless transitional pieces in your wardrobe, you can be prepared for any occasion or season!

It Has Pockets

If you are looking for the international symbol for cool, look no further than placing your hands in your pockets. Pockets are cool for a lot of reasons. You can put your keys, credit cards, chapstick, or phone in your pocket, just to name a few items. 


We don’t know about you, but we thoroughly enjoy any clothing that allows us to carry as little as possible in our hands. There is something secretive and exciting about a well-hidden pocket in an adorable dress.


We love the fact that a dress with pockets offers us an alternative to shorts, or dreaded pants, during the sweltering heat of the summer months!

Lightweight French Terry

Comfort is key when making wardrobe choices. If you purchase something because it looks cute, but it feels terrible, you’re probably not going to wear it. 


The Varsity T-Shirt dress also offers a vintage style with the comfort of French terry fabric. Whether you’re wearing this dress to catch up with friends over coffee or jet-setting to your vacation destination, you will be arriving in style. 


The lightweight fabric of this dress offers temperature regulation, UPF 50 sun protection and makes it the perfect piece for any season or destination. That’s because it’s made with a luscious blend of organic cotton and bamboo viscose that has all these properties without requiring additional chemical treatment. 

Takeaway

As the temperature heats up in the summer, the last thing we want is to have to change multiple times. Clothing that can go from day to night is a game-changer. Dresses that look just as good with sneakers as they do in the latest wedges are a staple in our closets.


Fabric is a major part of selecting the perfect transitional summer dress. Ideally, you want a fabric that has superior breathability and can wick away any moisture. At Tasc Performance, our clothing is specifically designed with sustainability, sun protection, and comfort in mind. 


We want you to know that your clothes can be fashionable and responsible. Your new favorite summer dress can look just as good grabbing groceries as it does grabbing small plates with friends, because that’s what we’re here for.
