Although we wish our summer break consisted of pure relaxation, it is unfortunately common for us to break our summer plans (or lack thereof) for running errands. Between grabbing groceries for your parents and picking up your younger siblings from their summer sports and activities, you’ll inevitably become a very busy Fashionista/o. This Fashionista showcases the three Cs of what to wear while running errands: cool, comfortable and chic.
With the summer heat rising, staying cool is imperative. The increasing temperature nearly begs you to wear your bikini and a cover-up around town. However, such an outfit is unfortunately not fitting for running errands. For example, you’ll quickly become cooler than you’d hope for as you stroll the produce and frozen food aisles of your grocery store. This Fashionista found a happy medium on the coolness spectrum as she tucked in a tank to a pair of high-waisted denim shorts. Said mix is a perfect harmony for running errands as it provides you coverage while still giving you breathing room to cool off.
Because you’ll be going from point A to point B, and maybe even C to D, you’ll want to incorporate comfortable pieces into your outfit when running errands. Wearing flip flops may grow uncomfortable between your toes and choosing a clutch over a larger purse or bag may result in you having your hands full (literally). This Fashionista highlights comfort in both her shoes and her choice of bag. Sporting thin moccasins and a medium-sized backpack, this Fashionista will have neither troubles being on her feet all day nor worries about having a free hand.
Remember that a Fashionista is always chic. Although running errands may make you want to just throw random articles of clothing on and call it an outfit, it’s worth your while to remain chic. Piecing together complementary colors or patterns will help you keep a chic status while choosing a very casual outfit. A couple accessories could also do the trick. This Fashionista displays both. She creates an organic look by matching earthy tones such as red and brown while also accessorizing with a bracelet and a few rings.
One Simple Change: Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t always agree with our plans. In case it begins to rain while you are running errands, simply pack a cardigan and add an umbrella. You’ll still have the option to remove your cardigan and throw your umbrella in your backpack or bag after the rain ends.
