What to Wear

This heat wave brings warning to stay cool! But when the weather seems too hot for anything, and when there is a  “no shirts, no shoes, no service” sign, finding the perfect outfit can be hard. But don’t sweat it! Here is a Fashionista who looks hot, hot, hot!

In Puerto Rico, where 75 degrees is considered “chilly,” I found this Fashionista who knew exactly what to wear in the heat. Her oversized fringe crop top is trendy and breezy, and won’t make her sweat to death, because that’s not cute. In a heat wave, denim shorts can feel like the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, so choose linen or cotton instead. Her Free People scarf printed shorts are light and comfortable, and add a colorful splash to this outfit. This Fashionista wore beige Converse high-tops instead of sandals, hinting that she’s totally local. Her awesome Ray-Ban flash lenses are an essential accessory during a heat wave, and add a pop of color to any outfit. And underneath it all, she’s calm, cool and wearing a bikini! The nude bikini top peaks through the fringe top, adding a dynamic, layered feel to her outfit.

During a heat wave, you’re going to sweat, so sporting a natural look is always best. Start with an SPF moisturizer to protect your skin from the sun, and keep your makeup simple and natural. A fresh face is always in style! Pro tip: wear your hair up and off your neck to keep you cool. Sock buns are super easy to do, and are perfect for those hot, humid days when you just want to shave your head, or is that just me?

One Simple Change: When it’s time to beat the heat and hit the beach, simply change your shoes from Converses to Sanuk Sidewalk Surfers. These shoes are perfect for the beach, and pair well with this boho-chic outfit.
