9 Lightweight Pieces for Surviving a Heat Wave
No matter how unbearably hot and sticky it gets outside, we are still expected to wear clothes in public ( sigh). The next best thing to going au natural? Draping your body in airy silhouettes cut from lightweight natural fabrics like linen, silk, and ultra-thin cotton. Here, 9 foolproof pieces for surviving a heat wave in style.
Mara Hoffman Shorts
Pair these easy breezy striped cotton shorts with a plain white T-shirt and slides.
Calypso St. Barth Pants
When in doubt, an all white linen pant is a reliable go-to.
Eyelet lace trim not only gives this cotton top a sweetly feminine spin, but extra ventilation.
Keep your legs cool in a lightweight breezy skirt.
VICTORIA, VICTORIA BECKHAM Dress
Between the breathable fabric and open neckline, cotton slip dresses let you dance all night without overheating.
A relaxed drape of a peplum means the fabric won't stick when your back starts to sweat. (Hey, we've all been there!)
Off-the-shoulder tops with barely-there overlays translate the trend to temperature spikes.
With trousers and heels at the office, at brunch with sneakers and jeans—just a few of the many ways one can wear a light linen tunic.
LISA MARIE FERNANDEZ Dress
Fear not the floor length dress! A breathable linen design that skims the body—like this three tier options—lets you go maxi without melting.
