This Summer has been a hot one here in Texas, though we have had hotter. And on super hot days, my fashion style is about 75% finding clothes that will keep me cool, and 25% looking cute at the same time. It’s a hard balance that I think I’ve mastered pretty well. So I’m going to show you my top picks for Summer 2017. At the end of this post, you’ll be able to see a few of those outfits all thrown together to give you a better look at my finished masterpiece.
First off, I’m going to start with a cute top that’s either sleeveless, halter or crop, depending on the heat and my mood. In Summer, the less clothing you can wear the better, at least that’s MY moto. And I like to work on my tan while looking good, so the more sun I can soak up the better.
I have been wearing these almost every single time I’ve gone out. They are made of very breathable fabric and let me get a great tan. And bonus, they go with almost anything. A cute pair of shorts, harem pants, skirt, and jeans. Plus, they are the perfect top over a bathing suit for a quick trip to a pool, lake, or creek.
The top two, you can find on Amazon for a very reasonable price. And the bottom one can be purchased from The Elephant Pants.
For a tank option, this tank has been one of my favorites.
It’s made similar to a work out style tank with the deep arm holes that let me show off a cute colorful bralette or workout bra. And the vibrant colors and patterns help to show off my vibrant personality. This is also a great choice for a swimsuit cover if you’re more of the shy type. This top can be found on ToSave.
For bottoms, my go to this summer have been Harem pants.
They are the most comfortable and lightweight bottoms I’ve ever worn. If you read my other posts, then you know I extremely dislike wearing jeans unless I have to. Jeans are too thick and constricting for the Texas Summer heat. Harem pants come in a variety of amazing colors and patterns so they really show off your personality. Plus, they come with super elastic waist bands that fit just about any size.
If it’s one of those triple digit days that seem like it’s completely impossible to wear any sort of pants, I go with boho style shorts. These have been my newest obsession.
They are made of a material similar to the harem pants which makes them very breathable. Their style is loose and flowy so I don’t feel constricted at all. And look at the super cute poms hanging from the bottom. That plus with the adorable elephant boho print pairs perfectly with any of my tops shown above.
These shorts can also be found for a reasonable price on Amazon.
To top it all off, the best way to complete the look is with the perfect jewelry.
The best place, I’ve found to get something to fit any style is Inspired Silver. It’s got some amazing choices for boho style. I’ve made a collage of just a few items that I absolutely love and would wear every single day. Even if Boho isn’t your thing Inspired Silver’s got jewelry in just about every fashion choice. There’s jewelry for sports enthusiasts, animal lovers, fandoms, initials, even jewelry to show support. And you can find necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, men’s, and even wedding sets.
