Five Ways to Stay Comfy and Cool
1. Skirts and Culottes
Put away the short-shorts from last year and pull on an easy breezy skirt or culottes. The loose fit will keep you cool. Pair it with a jacket and you could even go to work in it. Add a white t-shirt or blouse and a sandal and you’re done!
2. Low Heels
The kitten pump is back. Wear this low-heeled, pointy-toed pump with slouchy Bermuda shorts or rolled up boyfriend jeans. Try them with your new sheath dress or skirt.
3. The Maxi Dress
Available at Nordstrom.com
Do you want a look that’s as comfy as a nightgown? Slip into a maxi dress in a bold print in blue, red, or green. Pair with a cropped jacket to create more shape. Your jacket could be in denim, leather, or linen.
4. The Poncho Top
Available at www.chicos.com
Go for a poncho-inspired top in silk or a polyester blend. Pull it over your head, slip your arms through the draped sleeve and enjoy how it creates movement around your body. It’s perfect if it’s in a print – you can say goodbye to perspiration marks!
From the “Simply Scarves” DVD
An easy way to add style to your outfit is to add a summer weight scarf in linen, cotton, or silk. Just one bold color or print in a scarf will add interest and make your basics come to life.
Too hot to hang it on your body? Then tie it on your purse strap – instant style!
