It’s another scorcher today which means more ideas on how to beat the heat and look cool in the summer sun. Sometimes the summer sun is so full on that the best way to beat it is to stay out of it, but what do you do when you have to get out in it for work? Especially if you can’t get away with shorts and the tiniest tank top you own at work.
My suggestion – keep it natural, short as possible and open those toes! Plus wearing one of the cool colour trends of the season helps.
Naturally: Natural fibers are great for hot days because they breathe. You may remember this dress as one of my Madrid purchases from Sita Murt. It’s 100% silk and at just above the knee, the length is as short as I would ever wear! It’s also the perfect dress to wear my cork platforms thanks to how nicely the mustard coloured suede matches the print in the dress.
Perfect Match: I totally worked my accessories to match my look. But to keep from being too matching I made sure the shoes and handbag don’t match each other. The blue indigo bag and mustard coloured open toe platforms are the perfect colour matches for the Sita Murt dress. Jewelry is simple. My Marc Jacobs rose gold watch, rose gold drop earrings, to fine copper bracelets and a blue beaded bracelet. Everything works off the colour palette of the dress.
You are probably thinking long sleeves in the heat of summer? I say yes, for three reasons; 1) the dress is silk so the sleeves are light and breathe, 2) if you are out running errands on your lunch break you don’t want to get a sunburn on your arms (skin cancer is not a good look), and 3) if the AC is on at work, the longer sleeve keeps you from freezing when inside.
