Getting dressed during the Summer can easily become repetitive and boring; I mean, how many dresses and tank-top/short combos can one wear?? That being said, there are ways to keep your outfits fresh and fun and it all boils down to FABRIC. Choosing items made of lightweight, breathable fabrics can allow you to play around with your style and even do some minor layering without overheating. For this particular look, I chose to build around these amazing high-waisted striped culotte trousers. Culottes are a great option for the warmer months because their loose fitting construction can keep you cool while still looking chic. Another bonus in regards to these trousers is that they are made of a light linen fabric which keeps the air circulating throughout the garment. I chose to keep my top neutral and show a bit of skin with a bardot style crop top. Because this piece is made of a thin knit material, I was able to comfortably brave the heat despite the fact that it is more form fitting. Being that my color palette was fairly neutral, I thought it would be nice to add a pop of color with my powder blue heeled sandals. Bright colors are pretty much a staple during this time of year so I thought these strappy shoes added an unexpected, yet eye-catching touch. Lastly, no Summer look is complete without a pair of sunnies and I was thrilled to be able to incorporate one my latest purchases. I’m definitely an aviator girl when it comes to sunglasses and these gorgeous ombre frames were right up my alley! Remember, just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy experimenting with your style. Stay cool, and until next time!
