Clothing to Survive the Heat Wave

Runway shows are already looking to fall fashion trends, but let’s be real, it’s still hot out and we’ve only just finished July. August is full steam ahead and temperatures are not looking to drop any time soon! But we all know fashion doesn’t stop for anything! With this in mind, we’ve pulled together a list of items to wear when it’s too hot for clothes and you ‘literally just can’t’.

One of the easiest ways to stay cool, yet ~fashion~ is to focus on the way you style each piece. Plain, white tee? Knot it over your favorite flowy skirt. Cutoffs and a tank? Pair with big hoops, and your favorite layering necklaces. Breezy dress? Throw your hair up in a messy bun and tie a silk scarf around it.   

Another trick to keep in mind when dressing for the heat: it is all about materials and breathability. You will want to pick pieces made out of linen, cotton, or Tencel (a natural fiber that has a flattering drape and is soft, luxurious, breathable, naturally wrinkle-resistant, and environmentally sustainable) for maximum cool factor.

With these pieces, and some simple styling, you’ll stay breezy while you have fun in this summer heat!
