It’s barely June, and yet it’s been over 100 every day this week (and this is expected through next week as well). Is it too early to be this hot? Maybe, most likely that’s a questions for someone else. What I can debate is what do we wear in heat like this? Intense, unrelenting heat is so hard to dress for, partially because there are so few things that are completely sweat proof, partially because how do you stay chic in the midst of that.
There may be many answers for how to dress for riding out heat- from linen to swimsuits- but my most consistent fashion answer to dressing for heat is to keep it simple. And what is more simple than shorts and a tee shirt?
Here’s the thing about keeping things simple- there’s no rule that simple means boring. Or not a statement. In all honesty, I saw this combo on someone in a store- a simple one shoulder tank, denim shorts, lace up sandals- and she looked so great, so chic, so cool, that I knew that I had to recreate the look.
And the thing is, the gal I saw with this outfit (whoever you are you’re a genius!) wasn’t wrong. A simple but impactful tank (who doesn’t love a one shoulder moment?) and a great pair of denim shorts (I like mine a bit longer but if you love them they work!) along with great sandals (you can never go wrong with statement flat sandals) are my new favorite way to beat the heat (ironically even though this tank is black it is surprisingly cool). Who says riding out the heat has to be basic, boring, or bland? Not me- I’m all for simple statements in the heat. It’s the only way to ride out the heat in style (or what’s left of style when you’re done sweating!)
While this outfit was created with pieces I had, I’ve linked new pieces for you below. Maybe riding out the heat means we do it together?
