LA is having a serious heat wave right now. I can be outside having lunch and get sun burnt without even noticing. It takes a lot of discipline to not strip down to a bathing suit and chill by the pool. But that’s not realistic so I look to the closet for easy solutions that will help bare the scorching temps. Your next inclination may be cutoffs and a t-shirt. However, I’m all about chic style so that’s not going to work. I have a few ideas up my sleeves, so if you need help with what to wear when it’s super hot outside, keep scrolling!

Stick to light colors

Unlike dark colors, lighter ones reflect light instead of absorb it. Now you know why I’m always caught sporting white, nudes, and beiges. They’re also timeless colors that are flattering on everyone so you can keep them in your wardrobe all year long.

Wear sleeveless and crop tops

When in the brink of summer, I swear by crop and sleeveless tops! There are a few I’m sure you’ve seen me wear on repeat like this one. From off the shoulder blouses to sportier inspired tops, have no shame in midriff and arm-baring styles. They’re key to surviving the treacherous heat. You can match them up with high-waisted bottoms and denim – both are my faves!

Midi skirts keep it chic

You can always grab your favorite pair of shorts, but they’re not necessarily the classiest option. That’s why I’ll usually wear a midi skirt in its place. This one by Aritzia is one of my favorites because it’s so easy to wear. Plus, I know I’ll be comfy in it even if I’m strolling around in a sunny city like LA.

Try breathable fabrics

Don’t be so inclined to grab silk or satin pieces. You want to wear fabrics that won’t trap in heat, such as linen, cotton, or gauze. I love how these never cling to the skin and induce more sweat. Fabrics are super important, so remember this point for later!

Sandals over sneakers

When it’s really hot outside, I put alway my closed toe shoes at all costs and pick minimal sandals. My feet need to breathe! I try to avoid super thin, leather straps. These ones from River Island are just perfect because they don’t dig into my skin and the low heel is great for walking!

  • I would say that I generally tend to do all of these things in the summer, however, the sandal one is a tip that only recently I started following. I think finding a pair of sandals that fit well, are comfortable, and don’t stick to your skin is so important in the summer because the last thing you want is to walking around in a pair of socks and trainers when it’s 100 degrees outside! I think slides are perfect for this reason! Beautiful, beautiful outfit Pam! Midi skirts are really a style that is so so flattering on you – I wish I could pull that off!
