When we watch the temperature climb above 80°F, the thought of a simple task like getting dressed can seem nearly impossible — especially when you factor in the desire to actually appear pulled together in the sweltering heat. Fortunately, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve to put our most stylish foot forward, even in the midst of a summer heat wave. The trick to pulling it off is all in the power of a few statement pieces — we’re talking vibrant hues, asymmetrical hemlines, and attention-grabbing cutouts for a high-impact look that’s also low-effort.
Whether you’re going to the beach, grabbing brunch with the crew, running errands, or heading out to dinner, there’s a fashionable item in here that won’t raise your body temperature to an unbearable level. We’ve included sandals that give your feet room to breathe, hats that protect you from the sun, shorts that are loose and comfortable, tops that are stylish and airy, and, of course, lots of summer dresses. You could say we’ve uncovered the crème de la crème of warm-weather wear. The best part? All of these fashionable, easy-to-slip-on pieces are flattering and versatile. See them for yourself ahead.
