1.  Choose Silhouettes That Hang Away From the Body

When it’s steamy outside, you don’t want anything sticking to your skin. Pass over your bodycon dresses, and reach for pieces that drape gently like, kimonos, skater skirts, and trapeze dresses.

2. Reach For Light-Colored Clothing

We love a chic, all-black look just as much as the next girl, but when it’s sizzling outside, light colors reflect the sun and keep you cooler. This is a great time to embraces pastels and your summer whites.

3. Embrace Cut Out Details

Not only are cut outs trending, but they’re a great fix to keep you airy. Pops of skin will keep you ventilated and breezy: consider cold shoulders, keyholes, and peekaboo details.

4. Trade-in For Loose Denim

If nothing parts you from your denim – even the unbeatable heat – skip the skinnies and try a wide leg pair or even a denim skirt.

5. Try a Romper as a Dress Alternative

When the humidity struggle is so real, try a romper over your normal go-to dress. It’s still a one-and-done, easy look, same as your favorite dress, but the romper adds the extra protection against thigh chaffing, which can be extra irritating in the humid weather.  Added bonus: many rompers are made of more breathable material, a life saver during the scorching weather in itself.
