Have a seat and get into shopping mode with me please. For it is July, the best time to shop for summer items. Finding the right thing to wear during the hottest time of the year can be such a chore, mostly because there are few things that are both cute and comfortable to wear in the heat all day long. With long weekends to be enjoyed and mini trips to be made in the near future, here we are, on the hunt for versatile and stylish pieces well-suited for hot summer days!
1. Backless Tee from Melon Juice
When I’m lazy but still want to go out looking proper, this sultry tee is my savior. There’s something flirty about an open-back top, even more so when the front looks demure or unremarkable. This pure cotton version is perfect for any summer activity.
2. Floral Print Puff-Sleeve Wrap Blouse from Chlo.D.Manon
Dressing up when the weather is this hot means one can get away with showing off a little skin! Go for this flattering floral wrap top that’s equal parts sexy and elevated. Its off-the-shoulder design would go well with shorts and flat sandals on a sunny day around town.
3. V-Neck Linen Blend Shirtdress from PPGIRL
Stocking up on white dresses has been my to-do since the minute summer hit. Not only are the clean lines and slick button-through front completely office-appropriate, its linen cotton blend construction also means that it’s perfect for a holiday weekend.
4. Strapless Denim Jumpsuit from DABAGIRL
I believe a good jumpsuit will be one of the best investments I make for a while. This strapless denim number will no doubt come in handy on my next tropical vacation or city break. My favorite feature is the pockets! There’s always room for pockets no matter the design.
5. Bandeau Bikini from Binoche
Don’t be afraid to go sheer. Note how this bandeau bikini flatters all body types, and the lace cover-up is just as practical as it is pretty. This is the perfect style for lounging by the pool or beach – but don’t save it for only those occasions. They say bandeaus are the new crop tops!
6. Twisted Dress with Plunging Neckline from LIPHOP
This curve-flattering dress with a twist will probably end up being more of a date-night look than an everyday dress, but that doesn’t make me adore it any less! The soft and forgiving fabric is comfortable and stretches to hug your shape. When I need something a little fancier for a wedding, this will be it.
7. Ruffled Wrap Skirt from DABAGIRL
I wasn’t quite sure what to replace jeans with this summer, but this stylish wrap skirt saved me from resorting to denim again. The ruffles lend a sophisticated vibe, and the wrap design is naturally flattering. Dress it up with a crop top or go for a more casual look with a tee and sneakers.
8. Patent Flat Sandals from LIPHOP
Flat sandals are comfy, versatile and great with dresses, skinny jeans, and everything in between. I’m so glad it’s officially sandal season here, and I fell for the simplicity of these patent flats instantly. The chunky straps and glossy finish keep them dressy enough for fun nights out.
9. Strappy Block-Heel Sandals from Wifky
You can spice up any look by adding sultry heels, no matter the season. But block-heel sandals are for summer only, and this sleek cool pair is my new favorite. I love everything about this fuss-free style, from the chunky heel that provides just the right amount of elevation, to the delicate straps that secure a comfy fit.
10. Pointed Woven Flats from DABAGIRL
Stick to flats when you’re stumped on what to wear, especially with this stylish woven option that works so well with light dresses during the summer. The pointed toe and muted palette will be just as relevant in a few months as they are right now.
