Staying cool in the summer can be quite the challenge. With temperatures hitting the 3 digit mark, like here in Houston, and the humidity level being at the top of it’s game, we all want to wear the least amount of clothing possible. Isn’t that right? This of course doesn’t mean the only option you have is cutoffs and a tank, think outside the box and explore your closet a bit. More times than not, we have pieces that could work perfectly for hot humid days.
I like easy, light, flowy pieces like this gauze Maxi dress from The Mint Julep Boutique. It’s a great piece for staying cool in the summer. The loose fit works great for me and helps with keeping me cool, a great tip that I love is to knot it on one side at the bottom for extra ventillation. I’ll usually throw on a big floppy hat to protect my face from the harmful sun rays (and because it compliments the dress so well of course) and wear the comfiest sandals I own, which are these Sam Edelman slip-ons that I got last summer (don’t worry I linked similar ones below just for you).
What do you guys wear to stay cool in these oh so hot humid summer days? Let me know in the comments below.
