Chill: #OOTD Ideas For Summer's Worst Days
It’s such a terrible mix of heat and humidity right now that dressing up feels like a chore. We can't wait for the weather to start feeling cooler so until then, we'll be relying on these style ideas to help us beat the heat!
For shopping and running errands
Leave your pambahay at home and stick to these comfy picks instead. This is the best time to bring out your crop tops - just pair them with jeans and sneakers, and you're ready to go!
If you're conscious about exposing your belly though, cop Emma Roberts's street style with a graphic tee and jeans. Accessorize with a signature bag to keep your look chic, not grungy.
For the office
Having to deal with the crazy rush-hour traffic is stressful enough, so you shouldn’t let choosing clothes stress you more! Light tops are perfect if you want to feel comfortable without the hassle. Jamie Chung's top with bell sleeves looks great with a pencil skirt for channeling that Girl Boss vibe without the hot power suit. Trade the strappy heels for close-toed pumps though to keep it workplace-friendly.
If your dress code allows it, a silk jumpsuit looks very feminine while allowing you freedom of movement. Additionally, the silk fabric feels light on the skin, so you won’t need to worry about getting all sweaty when you step out for meetings or to grab some coffee.
For the beach
Bikinis aren't the only things to pack for your trip. A loose, flowy dress with pretty pink and blue hues can keep you covered up when you're not in the water. You can even wear it to a fun beach wedding! Pair it with strappy sandals and you just curated another #OOTD for your Instagram.
If you like dainty details, get a white cotton dress with lace for your sand-strolling, picture perfect beach trip. Create a beach glow makeup look and spritz on some DIY sea salt spray to complete your beach goddess transformation.
For romantic dates
We certainly hope summer doesn't end without you going on a date with your beau! Take inspiration from Olivia Palermo's denim on denim ensemble for a style break from the usual selection of pastels and florals. A chambray top is actually light and comfortable to wear! Dress it up with a pair of statement heels for a brunch or lunch date, or patent leather flats for a full day out together.
Got dinner reservations to a fancy restaurant? Slip into something that looks sexy but classy. The sleeveless design shows off your bare arms while the flowy fabric hides any bulges in your belly area! Strap on some stilettos and your date won't be able to take his eyes off you!
