I’m sharing 5 things you should never wear in the summertime and what to wear instead, ensuring you remain comfortable and stylish all season long! Say goodbye to these summer fashion faux pas and embrace a summer wardrobe that lets you bask in the sun in style and comfort!

5 THINGS TO AVOID WEARING IN THE SUMMERTIME TO BEAT THE HEAT!

1

LONG AND TIGHT DRESSES:

The first item on my list of things you should never wear in the summertime is long and tight dresses. Tight maxi dresses have their place in my wardrobe, but when the temperatures get crazy high, I suggest opting for shorter, lighter dresses like this one by Paige. The light neutral shade and cotton material go a long way towards keeping you cool and make this dress look far more expensive than it is. I’m wearing an XS in this cool summer dress, which also comes in a gorgeous lilac shade.

CLOSED TOE SHOES:

Sandals are key when the heat gets unbearable, and these gorgeous neutral slides by Sam Edelman are one of my top recommendations! They’ve been the top sellers for the last two months on my blog. That’s just how good they are! The neutral shade goes with everything, but they also come in many other colors and combinations. They’re super comfy because of the padded footbed and have a great price point. I find they run slightly big, so size down half a size – I’m wearing a size 7.

JEANS:

Have you ever put on a pair of jeans in the morning and totally regretted it later in the day? Don’t let this happen to you; try wearing denim shorts instead! These Moussey shorts have an amazing fit. I love the medium wash for styling different color combinations. One of my favorite aspects is that the legs are designed a little bit wider, making them flattering and comfortable. There’s no need to size up for the perfect fit. I wear a size 24, and they fit true to size.

ALL BLACK:

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how much I love a monochrome ensemble, especially a classy all-black ensemble; However, when it’s the dead of summer, I highly recommend sticking with lighter colors instead, since they reflect the sun instead of absorbing it. This casual summer look is a perfect example, especially my light-wash denim miniskirt. The higher hemline and lighter wash will both keep you cooler than the darker, longer alternative and the slit at the hemline doesn’t hurt either! I wear a size 24 and find it fits true to size.

LONG DENIM DRESSES:

Last but not least on my list of 5 things you should never wear in the summertime is long dresses in a heavy material like denim. Instead, opt for shorter denim dresses like this flattering one from Madewell to stay on trend but still comfortable. Throw on a pair of chic strappy sandals and a designer handbag and you’ve got the brunch ensemble that won’t have you melting before noon! I wear a size XS and I find it fits true to size.
