After the hurrah of the holiday season and forgiving weather of the last 2 months, we’re finally at the frontier of summer. And this is the season where most people are divided—you’re either fond of the idea of sun and sand or you’re somebody who’d rather stay in than engage in hot weather activities. But commonly, the problem that arises is dressing in the heat. We understand your struggle—even the most fashionable girls can find it tough to be stylish in this season and if summer dressing doesn’t exactly come naturally to you, consider this your guide to making it just a little more bearable.
Go for light long sleeves
For now, it’s time to leave your favorite knits at their designated closet spaces and reach for lighter pieces. You can still definitely wear long sleeves but the key is to reach for thinner fabrics such that will feel comfortable. A good go-to piece would be a satin button down that fits a bit loose matched with a pair of breezy cotton drawstring trousers.
Swap your jacket for a robe
For something that’s both comfy and street style-worthy, take a page from the Italian girl staple by wearing a light, airy robe in place of a jacket. You can style this with denim and a bodysuit for a look that’s chic and relaxed.
Off-shoulder saves the day
Versatility is the name of the game with off-shoulder tops. You can wear it with literally anything—style a bell-sleeved piece with flared trousers or an off-shoulder button down with a bright skirt.
New wave slip
This fashion season, we’re seeing a lot of nostalgic trends making a comeback and the cool girl staple piece is one of them—the slip dress. A favorite of supermodels and It girls alike, it’s a piece that can instantly make an outfit stylish. Wear a bright, silk one with a light blouse or a dark maxi with a simple white tee for an outfit that elevates the casual.
The summer dress
When in doubt, reach for the most apporpriate item of the season—the easy, breezy summer dress. Take it from fashion girl Aimee Song, a playful printed dress can be the easiest look you’ve ever done. Pair them with block heel tassel heels in a bright hue for an ensemble that effortlessly stands out.
