The seasons are changing, in some places more sporadically than others. New York hasn’t seemed to have made a decision as to what season it is. In Las Vegas, where I currently reside, it is most definitely summer. Since it gets ridiculously hot here, I have had to learn how to dress in one-hundred and twenty degree weather. As the temperatures rise, the desire to wear tights and sweaters quickly drops. Seasons change, so should our wardrobes. Here’s a few recommendations on how to not sweat the heat along with 8 recommendations of some of our favorite pieces.
The looser the clothing, the better the airflow:
Tight clothing in the summer is a recipe for stored body heat, and an unhappy woman. Loose fitting clothes allow more air to pass through, keeping you cooler. Keep an eye out for tops, skirts and dresses that are flowy and roomy.
Look for one hit wonders!
Simply put, the less layers, the better. Though many are accustomed to wearing tank tops over shells, those layers can add up and bring some unwanted heat along with it. Try to find tops that have the coverage you desire.
1. NEWMEAPPAREL has a line of tops with a high neck and a sleeve that comes right below the elbow. It comes in numerous colors, and at $15, it’s a steal!
2. Sami New York has created the cutest line of tee shirts that need no layering whatsoever. Even the white tops don’t need tanks under!
Dresses are very in style now and are so fun to wear! Find dresses that don’t need slips – slips are great for smoothing out lines and giving an extra layer of coverage, but they also are great at added extra layers to your outfit. Dresses that are flattering and opaque will go the distance as the temperatures rise. We rounded up a few of our favorite dresses that are pretty, comfortable and don’t need any shells!

Bike shorts are your friend
Even though layers are not the thing you need this summer, the idea of bike shorts is one that is necessary for most of us. Chafing is an issue none of us want to deal with. Shorts is the one item that your thighs will thank you for.
To sum it up, less layers, more breathing room, happy woman. Please leave any other tips or links to YOUR favorite modest summer wear below!
