Style

HEATWAVE

Caitlin Rance

 

Whenever it gets hot—like uncomfortably hot—I never have a clear idea of what to wear. While I do love warm weather, the sweat, mixed with that uncomfortable chaffing and leg-jiggle (because yes, Caitlin, all legs jiggle regardless) has earned me the occasional complete mental breakdown in front of my closet. What I've come to realize after many Summers, and random heatwaves, is that I've just failed to really edit my closet when it comes to the Summer season. Maybe some of you have experienced this—what seems like—rookie mistake as well. Although I think we all add more warm weather pieces to our closets when Spring rolls around, there's always the occasional cool day or consistently breeze that still forces us to wear long sleeves or some sort of light jacket. However, Summer is obviously a whole other beast. Pieces that work for Spring, won't necessarily work for Summer. Because of that, I've assessed many of the issues I find when getting dressed in the morning and I think I've figured out the pieces I'll be wearing all Summer long. 

 I have the occasional day where I just get super insecure about my arms. On days when I feel bloated as hell all over, I'd probably go for a top like this which is light + loose, with a deep opening, but wide semi-long sleeves for coverage. You can easily pair this with a pair of cut-offs or a skirt and add some sandals for the perfect #SummerLewk.

 You know those weird in-between days where it starts of cold and gets really hot or starts off hot and gets really cold? During days like that, go for a midi skirt. I know skirts can be a sort-of intimidating piece for some people because they can either swallow your shape or make you look frumpy. I think a piece like this is definitely something you need to seek out and try on (maybe more than once.) However, I think a piece like this, once you find you perfect one, can look amazing during the Summer. You can pair this with a cool graphic tee or even a cute bathing suit top.

 Jumpsuits are basically quintessential during the summer IMO. It's basically a whole outfit but totally made for weather that's both hot and cool. A lot of jumpsuits are made out of cotton or linen so they're light on the skin and won't cause you to sweat like a mofo. These are great if you're on the go and don't wanna fuss, plus you can dress them up or down.

 Denim is typically not your friend during the Summer, but linen is totally willing to buddy up with you for the season. Again, linen is just a great fabric that won't cause you to overheat, but when you do start to sweat, it'll dry up super quickly. I know white can sometimes be a little scary for anyone, but it's a nice light color so you won't be overheating anytime soon.

 I absolutely love this style that we've started to see a lot in the form of dresses and tops. This dress makes me want to go hang out in a coastal town in Italy and drink Negronis all day. You can easily dress this piece up or down, as well as accessorize with more colorful items. If this style isn't necessarily your thing however, I'd still keep your eyes out for some sort of mini-dress. Dresses are overall the one item you really need in your closet during the hot season.

 Shorts are kind of a must for the Summer, but denim cut-offs can make you chaff and sweaty almost instantly. So, instead of denim shorts, I'd probably go for Bermuda style pair of shorts which come in lots of different styles + fabrics. With a piece like this you still get great air flow while showing off some leg.

  The best thing about these is that the world is seriously your oyster when it comes to how you want to style it. You have complete control over how you want it buttoned, and on days when it's scorching but you want a little bit of fabric on you, you can leave a couple buttons opened and pair it with a cute bralette or bathing suit top.

 I absolutely love one pieces for tops during the Summer. Because swimsuits are made for the water, they are amazing if you sweat easily. Obviously it's not fun to sweat, but if you're gonna sweat, you might as well look cute doing it, right? I love this one from Solid & Striped, and yes, it is a bit pricey, but super cute.
