So you read my handy-dandy guide on wardrobe classics and went out and cultivated a closet full of staples, but the mercury is rising and a lot of those pieces just don’t work for a hot, humid summer day. What’s a fashion-loving gal to do?
Don’t sweat it (pun totally intended!), I’ve got you covered. Last week, I blogged about must-have summer sunglasses and this week, I’m sharing the must-own warm weather dressing staples that’ll ensure you enjoy the season easily, breezily and stylishly. Whether you find yourself sailing on a yacht, lounging on a beach or pounding the pavement and doing some serious summer shopping, there is something here that’s you.
Think of this as a Choose Your Own Adventure fashion story. Which makes it Choose Your Own Wardrobe — and it’s Mix and Match. Look hot, and beat the heat: nothing wrong with that!
