The heat is here, but that doesn’t mean your sense of style has to go out the window. Stay sartorial in your wardrobe with these six ways to dress fashionably, even when it’s scorching hot outside. Clothes on, style points up…let’s do this.
Light Colors Over Dark
There’s a reason moody colors are more popular in the fall and winter months. Ditch the dark colors this summer (they absorb more heat) and don your best whites and lights. Light-colored clothing will give you that bright and airy feeling synonymous with summer. Win-win.
Sunglasses + Eye Protection
Doubling as protection for your eyes and a trendy fashion statement, sunglasses are your best friend (and accessory) this summer. Choose a style that’s always “in” like the classic aviator, a timeless shape that goes well with almost every outfit.
Hats + Sun Protection
Right up there with sunglasses, a great hat is a must-have in your summer wardrobe arsenal. With so many styles to choose from, it should be fairly easy to find one that suits you. Try out a wide-brim straw hat or a classic baseball cap. Not only do hats up your style, but they also do the dirty work, protecting you from the sun and heat.
The Striped Shirt
You need at least one striped shirt in your summer wardrobe. Why? It gives off those stylish nautical vibes that are classic without going over the top. And even better, the striped shirt (horizontal of course) pairs well with everything: shorts, skirts, pants, and denim.
Loose, Flowy Tops & Dresses
Whether you prefer an off-the-shoulder number or a classic racerback tee, keep your tops loose and comfortable, allowing the airflow to keep you cool. And it’s a good thing dresses are always in style, because they really are a go-to during the hot summer months.
Sensible Summer Footwear
Let’s be real: No one wants to wear socks and tennis shoes in the summer. Keep it simple with a classic “dressed up” flip-flop, or step it up with fancier summer footwear, like a wedge or strappy sandal.
