Dressing Up for the Dog Days

KANSAS CITY, MO – The hot weather has many of us wearing as little as possible: tank tops and shorts are pretty standard for women who are going to be outside for any length of time. But this isn't the case in every culture or time period.

During this week's heat wave, Laura Ziegler spoke to some area women about different approaches to dressing for the heat and KC Currents' intern Brenna Daldorph checked out real examples of what Kansas Citians were wearing in the early years of the 20th century.
