Look & Stay Cool When It’s Hot – Casual Looks with Local Boutiques

As the temperatures are getting higher and higher, we should all update our wardrobe with clothes that will keep us cool and comfortable. Our stylist put together 3 classic and easy looks, incorporating some day-to-night transitions, all trending this summer that will keep you cool and stylish. 


cheers!Sometimes you just need to be relaxed and casual but still stylish. The easiest way to achieve this is with the classic pairing of a t-shirt and skirt, leaving room for infinite style options. To avoid losing yourself in a baggy top, add a high-waisted feminine skirt to show off your figure. Effortless and casual this combination keeps you cool, with light weight materials, and on trend.  Take your casual look from day to night for an after-hours look, grab a leather mini skirt and edgy heels.

Casual summer dresses are great for a stylish no fuss look. Sometimes you don’t have a enough time to get ready in the morning, so it is nice to have a trendy dress on hand. Let your little black dress take a back seat this summer, and make room for your little white dress. This t-shirt style is practical, crisp and cooling. Pair with cute flats for daytime and a denim jacket if you get chilly, switch out for sneakers and a leather jacket for an edgy nighttime look. 

The jersey tank dress is another alternative summer dress trend. With its light, breathable fabric and no-sweat-showing sleevelessness, a tank dress is going to be our go-to for all those upcoming August days. Add personality to your look with a trendy woven handbag and floppy sunhat, transition to wedges and a statement tassel necklace when grabbing drinks with the girls.

Dresses not for you? Play up the whole t-shirt and jeans look with an off-the-shoulder top alternative. This trend is still going strong for summer, and why not show a little skin off with at glowing summer tan. With this popular trend anything go from silk to cotton, stripes or floral, dramatic shaped sleeves to short eyelet ruffles. For the weekend, this top looks best with frayed denim or more casual boyfriend style jeans.
