I feel like summer gets an awful lot of hate in the blogosphere. Maybe it's just because I'm a July baby, but I like summer. I like not having to wear socks. I like not having to wear pants. I especially like laying out by the pool and soaking up rays (although there hasn't been time for that this summer, wahn wahn). I'll admit it can be tricky to look stylish in the summer. But it's not impossible.
So here's my advice, especially if you have to deal with 90+ degree heat:
1) Avoid form fitting clothing. Go for roomy items that let you breathe, like soft shorts.
2) Patterns! Forget scarves and statement necklaces, let your prints serve as a point of interest.
3) If you have to accessorize, I say opt for embellished sandals and/or sunglasses on the head.
What are your tips for looking put together while staying comfortable in the dog days of summer?
