The temperatures are scorching, and the bright sun is shining—which means there’s no better time to show off your sizzling sense of summer style. Our favorite personal-style bloggers gave us suggestions for breezy summer outfits for every occasion—from a daytime barbecue to—you guessed it—a hot night on the town.
Flirt it up with fun summer colors.
Don’t be afraid to show off your experimental side by mixing and matching contrasting colors. Bright colors lift my mood, and this outfit is no exception! I love mixing different textures, like sequins, and playing with more than one color in an ensemble.
Dress around one showstopping piece.
Show off your favorite statement piece—whether it’s a bright necklace, killer shoes or a sassy skirt—by keeping the rest of your outfit low-key. This summer look is perfectly delicate but with a punch of color. I love wearing a flirty and fun skirt on a hot summer day, and this one is great with the bright florescent flowers.
Stay cool in breathable fabrics.
On hot summer days, I gravitate toward breathable fabrics like linen and stretchy cotton—and of course, bare legs. Note that “breathable” doesn’t have to mean blah or floaty.
Have a summer fling with warm-weather colors.
Next to midday margaritas and the smell of suntan lotion, nothing says summer like wearing sky blue and bright white.
