The height of the summer can be pretty overbearing and dreadful. In Vegas not only is it 110 degrees outside but you can add another 10 to 15 degrees the second you get in your car. During the warm, summer days my wardrobe takes a hit. I wear the most ridiculous clothes just to keep cool and sometimes my outfits don’t even make sense.

Despite the scortching weather, it is still possible to keep up with trends during the summer months. Yes, you read right. I don’t know about you but I am over the shorts, tank top and flip flop route to every summer gathering, date and event. I say it’s time to end the boring summer wardrobe and keep cool while keeping our sense of style.

This Fashionista’s dress is trendy and lightweight which makes it perfect for summer events. Her dress has the laced-up detail we are seeing everywhere however, it is still classy. The lace in her dress also allows for more breathing room which is perfect to keep cool. To add to the look, this Fashionista wore a fringe shall, which is the same neutral color as her dress, to give it a bohemian vibe. The soft, neutral colors in her look allow her to keep cool as well, considering darker colors attract heat. She finished her outfit with a dainty layered necklace and a small, chunky, nude heel. The best part of this look is that it can be worn any season, for many different occasions. Because both the dress, shall and heels are neutral colors, she can add them to almost any look and dress them up or down.

For her hair and makeup, this Fashionista went for a more natural look. Her makeup has soft golden tones and a peachy lip while she kept her hair natural and added a few braids for detail.

How to: Have you ever wondered how to spice up your simple dress? Add a shall or kimono and a necklace to give the look more detail. Complete the look with a fun sandal or heel and you’re all set!
