How to Look Cute When It's F*%$ing Hot Outside

Let's get real: getting dressed when it's over 90 degrees is slightly torturous. 
The truth is, no matter what you choose to wear, you know you're going to burn up the second you step outside (and then freeze in air conditioning as soon as you go inside). But you have to be as well-prepared as possible, and that means picking the right outfit combination. We styled FOUR outfit options to help you get dressed when it's f*%$ing hot outside–read on for our favorite ideas.

Pair a Flowy Dress With Sandals

Maximize breeziness by choosing a flowy dress. Pair it with classic gold hoops (we love these Rosantica earrings with the faux pearl detailing), a printed tote bag like Poolside's Bobbi Neon Daisy, and an easy pair of slide-on sandals to complete your heatwave-friendly look. 

Don't Be Afraid to Wear a Bathing Suit

Even if you're not heading to the beach, you can layer a bathing suit on a scorching hot day just to stay comfortable. Our back bow one piece is the perfect base to style an outfit around–add a pair of loose and lightweight pants like this one by Summersalt. Pack a punch with your accessories–these embellished sandals will make a statement, as will this shell-covered bag from Poolside.

A Lightweight Tank Is a Lifesaver  

Jason Scott's basics were made for heatwaves (the soft tri-blend fabric will keep you comfortable in the heat)! A pair of short white shorts like this Rag & Bone style and Veja sneakers will round out the rest of this cool outfit. Roxanne Assoulin's rainbow necklace will add some color to the look.

Make Short Activewear Your Go-To

Activewear, but make it heat-friendly. Short bike shorts and a seamless sports bra are your closet staples when the temperatures are on the rise. Add a pair of breathable mesh sneakers like this Veja style with square Ray-Ban sunglasses and you're ready to go.
