When the temperatures and the humidity rise, it can be almost unbearable to head out into the heat. Triple digit temperatures are no joke and we are heading into that time of year when Mother Nature starts pushing those numbers. It can be hard to even care about fashion during these times, but it is possible to stay stylish and cool during hot weather.
Here are my favorite ways to dress for hot weather.
1- Sandals and slides Free the piggies! If my toes and feet can feel some air flow, I’m so much more comfortable. Socks and closed toe shoes can make your feet hot during the summer, so opt for sandals when it’s appropriate. When sandals aren’t appropriate, opt for shoes that are breathable and get some moisture wicking socks.Lucky Brand Women’s Gabrien Wedge Sandals Women’s Shoes • Lucky Brand • $79

2 Skirts and dresses – When it’s hot, I don’t like anything that clings. I favor skirts and dresses over jeans. They are breezy and cool. If thigh rubbing or sweat dripping is an issue, wear slip shorts under skirt and dresses.
3 Kimonos and tanks– A tank will keep you cool but if you are self conscious of your upper arms, a kimono is great way to cover up while staying cool.

4 Wear breathable and natural fabrics– cotton, linen and rayon. Polyester will stick and is not your friend for hot weather. Seersucker, chambray, eyelet, and jersey are great options for staying stylish and cool during hot weather.
Linen shorts: options
5- Spice up your basic outfits with statement earrings. When it’s too hot for layers and lots of accessories, a pair of fun statement earrings can bring a simple outfit of shorts and a tee up a level.
It’s easy to stay stylish and cool during hot weather with one of these five tips. What’s your favorite way to stay stylish and cool?
