What to Wear When It’s Hot AF Outside

Most of us have experienced those scorching hot summer days when the sun is beating down on us and temperatures soar, making finding an outfit to keep cool and comfortable while looking fashionable a huge challenge. Not to worry! This guide will share some of our best fashion advice for beating the heat in style!

Sundresses and Rompers Are Your Summer BFFs

Sundresses are the embodiment of summer fashion: They are versatile, easy to wear, and ideal for beating the heat. Choose flowy maxi sundresses with vibrant colors and playful patterns for maximum protection or shorter sundresses for fun, flirty vibes. You can also consider one-piece alternatives like a romper, and pair it with sandals and a wide-brimmed sun hat for a complete summer look!

Stay Cool with Breathable Footwear

Pay attention to the importance of wearing appropriate footwear for hot weather. Rather than closed-toe shoes, opt for open-toe sandals, which keep your feet cool and add a splash of summer flair to any ensemble. Sandals with cushioned soles and breathable straps will prevent your feet from sweating. Wedge or platform sandals can keep you cool while giving you extra height and enhancing your outfit.

Accessorize for Success

Accessories are your secret weapon for elevating hot-weather outfits. Some ideas include a wide-brimmed or straw hat to protect your face from sunlight and sunglasses to shield your eyes. Lightweight scarves can also be an invaluable accessory when it’s hot AF. Wear them as headbands, sarongs, or shoulder wraps for a boho-chic style! For optimal results, choose lightweight fabrics like cotton or silk and add statement jewelry or an eye-catching tote bag to complete the look.
