Time for a little TMI: I sweat like it's nobody's business. I don't know why I've been cursed, but summer is a particularly rough time for me. As a result, I've come up with a number of summer outfit hacks that will keep me cool (or at least make it seem like I'm not sweating as profusely as I actually am). One of those tricks is wearing a white button-down over a dress — and it just so happens that it's Brooke Shields' go-to as well.

I had the pleasure of meeting Brooke recently at a True Botanicals event in NYC, where she gave me some amazing beauty tips. It was a super humid day, so I wore my favorite slip dress from Amazon (read all about it, here) paired with a lightweight button-down over it, which I wore open with a front knot. With this look, my sweat was concealed and I didn't overheat. Once Brooke and I sat down to chat, she commented on my outfit right away: "This is like my summer go-to," she told me, agreeing that it's a smart way to discreetly sweat while still looking put together.

I was wearing a satin button-down from Express (which is on sale, BTW), but you can get the look starting at $19 on Amazon. Thousands of customers are "impressed" with Gemolly's basic button-down — so much that some say "even the most expensive white collared shirts" don't compare. Shoppers also particularly love this Amazon Essentials button-down, which is the site's best-selling blouse. More than 6,500 customers gave it a five-star rating, raving that it's flattering and "so comfy and soft."

If you want something smooth and silky like the one I wore, you can snag this stretchy $30 option from Escalier that customers say is "excellent quality," "breathable," and "beautifully made." One customer said it "doesn't stick" to their body when they sweat, which is definitely the goal.
