3 Outfits Perfect for Summer Heat

17 Jul

Summer is in full swing, and that means jam-packed schedules full of warm weather activities. During these hot summer months, many people like to spend their weekends trading in city life for a relaxing escape to the country. Whether you’re heading to a lake, barbeque, or country concert this summer, you still want to put your best fashion foot forward. It’s usually quite humid at this point in July, making it difficult to put together and outfit that is both stylish and lightweight.

What to Wear to a barbeque:

Dress: Ella Moss | Wedges: Michael Kors | Bangles: Sequin

As if the weather isn’t hot enough, the heat from the grill is bound to make the party even hotter! Opting for a sundress and some extra accessories is a simple way to stay cool while looking your best. This Ella Moss dress comes with a flowy design that won’t stick to your skin when it’s hot outside. If you‘re one of those women who must wear heels, stick with a sturdy wedge to ensure you won’t sink in the grass. During the summer, accessorizing with extra jewelry can liven up an outfit. Since you want to wear the lightest layers possible, adding a few extra bangles will pull together even the simplest ensemble.

What to Wear to a Country Concert:

With summer comes concert season, and with concert season comes unpredictable weather. It could be warm and sunny by the beginning of the concert, but a torrential downpour by the end. These erratic weather patterns can make planning an outfit a nightmare. The key to concert dressing is light layers. If possible, avoid wearing a dress, as it can be difficult to sit on the ground while also staying covered up. Denim shorts and a tank top will create a comfortable look that won’t be unbearably warm. Choosing a sleeveless top will help prevent sweat stains. Wear a cross-body bag so you can focus on holding a drink instead of a purse. Finally, it wouldn’t be a country concert without cowboy boots!

What to Wear to a Lake:

Swimsuit: J.Crew | Cover-Up: La Blanca | Sandals: Tory Burch | Hat: J.Crew

A festive red and white polka dot swimsuit like this J.Crew one is perfect for a swim in the lake or catching some rays. Look for suits with removable straps to avoid those pesky tan lines! A lightweight cover-up can also double as a dress during the day. Finally, top this breezy look off with a hat to protect your eyes and face. This Panama hat from J.Crew is a stylish option for preventing sunburn.

Wherever your plans take you this summer, just remember that it is possible to look chic while beating the heat!
