STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Cool for the Summer

With the peak of summer upon us, it can be a challenge to find a balance between a stylish-yet-lightweight ensemble. Oftentimes, the encompassing feeling of stickiness on our skin makes the decision for us and we’re left searching for the (literal) coolest clothing item in our closets. Outfits are compromised in order to beat the heat, and the cute summer clothes are left hanging in our closets for the less humid days, for which we patiently wait. However, until the weather cools down, all of us facing this fashion dilemma  can get some insights from a Fashionista I spotted looking cute, cool, comfortable and definitely had perfected the summer wardrobe balance.

With a loose flowy and feminine dress, this Fashionista effortlessly displayed a very suitable choice for a sweltering summer day. Though it had long sleeves, the material was lightweight and airy. (So much so, you wouldn’t even notice the extra fabric on your arms). The bright color and embroidered flowers brought a distinctive summer feature to the look.

This Fashionista kept her accessories minimal, which allowed the magenta-colored dress to make the statement. What she did accessorize with was a simple necklace, a gold band bracelet and a classic leather strap watch. The relaxed vibe associated with the dress called for a pair of equally cool and stylish shoes—and her ankle wrap sandals were totally on-trend, and completed the look with a bohemian touch.

So the next time a 90-degree and 75-percent humidity day rolls around, and you’re not all about those tight denim cut-offs, opt for an easy and stylish dress. It will be sure to keep you feeling cool and comfortable all day long.
