Hello, everyone! It's been a hot, hot summer so far, and it's only going to get hotter from here! When it's so hot outside, we usually want to stay inside and avoid the heat, but sometimes you have to get out and have some fun. And...I'm sure the first thing you think of is, "What am I going to wear?!" You don't want to sacrifice looking stylish but you don't want to have a heat stroke either. Check out these pieces of clothing that will keep you cool and stylish in the heat!

One way to keep cool this summer is to wear loose-fitting items of clothing. There's nothing worse than not being able to pull your pants up because you're so sweaty (I've done it, and it's not pleasant). Tighter clothing = extra time pulling up clothing and feeling suffocated.I like this top because it's simple and sleek. You can never go wrong with black, but I do suggest wearing it more at night since it tends to absorb heat. You may not notice it, but this top is a racerback. You get a little more air movement that way. Another plus to this sleek and simple piece are the adjustable straps. That may not be a big deal to some people, but when you're like me (short and small chest), you need those straps to achieve the same look.

I LOVE these shorts. They're so colorful...makes me feel like I'm on vacation somewhere tropical! This pair of shorts is made from breathable 100 % cotton. You could wear these pretty much anywhere--as part of a swim suit cover-up, vacation, or just at home trying to stay cool. It's definitely a plus when you can wear it pretty much anywhere. The little pom poms add a cute touch that completes the look of the shorts. I'd have to say that the two things that caught my attention were the colors and the pom poms..haha. These aren't only for women--you can get them in toddler and girl sizes up to size 7 if you want to go for a matchy look with your little girl.
Item #3 is from solemareny
Who doesn't like the feel of silk on their skin? No one, right? This cute top is 100 % silk and probably one of the silkiest summer shirts you need right now. What more could you want? It's soft, flowy, and colorfiul--all perfect for summer. The waist has elastic to create the draped effect, so it can be moved to the best place on the waistline. This top can be paired with pretty much anything..casual, business..and can go across seasons.
Item #4 is from SkirtEffect
This dress is definitely one of my favorites on this roundup! I love the color and how flowy it is. You'll be cool and fabulously stylish in this low cut, halter dress. It's also lined, so if you don't want to wear a bra (and honestly, I don't know how you would) you don't have to. Sometimes bras just make you hotter in the summer time. The tassel halter tie is adjustable and adds interest to the back. Make sure you get this one on your list ASAP.
Item #5 is from InLoveIn
I think everyone likes to wear a longer dress from time to time, so I thought this would be something to wear out on a summer evening. You could wear it to dinner, to a party, or just sitting under the stars. It's very versatile so that's a definite plus. I also think throwing some red into your wardrobe adds a little va-voom. Red is a power color, and with this dress design, you have combination that equals a stunning dress. Flow is in style right now and it keeps you cool--plus it has a low-cut back with a little bit of visual interest, so show off that back!
That's all I've got for you today, everyone! I hope you've gotten some ideas for staying cool and still being fashionable during the summer, which isn't necessarily easy to do! Go outside and have some fun, but remember to stay cool and hydrated and not overdo it!
