Beat the Heat With These Street Style Looks

The forecast for this summer has been, and continues to be, hothot, hot.

When the weather's falling anywhere between 70° and triple digits, it can be tricky to decide what to wear when you're picking out your outfits in the morning. Some days, it can feel like your only options are a swimsuit or staying indoors. However, we have some tips for wearing sleek street styles that'll also help you beat the heat.

White Tank, Blue Jeans

If you don't already have a simple white tank in your closet, now's the time to get them. Summer is still burning, and we want to keep you cooled down during the hot and long days, so throw on that tank with some blue jeans and call it a day, or step things up with some accessories and a loose blouse.

 

Light Linens

Light linens are breezy and perfect for making the most of the coastal grandmother aesthetic. Soft colors, lightweight materials and the right accessories will have you styling during these hot days. Pair light linen with some sneakers for errands and you won't have to worry about your feet hurting later. We're always thinking ahead.

Cargo Skirts and Knitted Sleeves

Cargo skirts are very on-trend right now. These skirts are versatile and are way more comfortable than those too-tight pairs of jeans. Pair the cargo skirt with a simple tank and add some knitted sleeves or cropped sweater for a look with a bit more color and excitement than your average fare.

Shirt Dress

Dua Lipa has been majorly inspiring us with her shirt dresses lately. Even long-sleeve, button-down pieces are breezy and light, making them so much better than wearing pants. Free those legs so you can enjoy the hot weather without suffering.

Bikini Top as a Shirt

What's the difference between a crop top and a bikini top? Not much, other than one is waterproof—meaning it's sweat-proof, too. Opting for a bikini top with high-waisted pants and a maxi skirt is the perfect way to beat the heat.

Dresses

Shirt dresses aren't the only types of dresses that complement summertime weather. They're comfortable, breezy and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. A halter, spaghetti strap, crocheted, white or heart-neck style will do. Just be sure to wear what inspires you!

Crochet or Knitted Vests

Although vests might seem like a warm alternative to a tee, there are so many different brands and styles to choose from that you can't really go wrong. The lighter the fabric or the more loosely it's made, the better. Vests are also just the thing to wear when there are some clouds in the forecast.

 

Graphic Anything

Graphic tees, tanks and hats are essential to have in your wardrobe. They spice up an outfit and make getting ready for a last-minute plan with friends not so complicated.
