The unbearable summer heat doesn’t mean you can’t be cute. Even though less clothing is necessary during the summer, there’s more to a summer wardrobe than shorts and tank tops. If you need some inspiration, take a look at some of these beautiful celebs:
This outfit is perfect for the humidity of the streets and the coldness of an office. Instead of pants, grab a printed pencil skirt and add a loose chiffon blouse and a pair of heels — Voila! You’re perfect.
This dress is great for work because it’s a comfortable length and the ¾ sleeves can offer extra coverage in a chilly office. Just add a brightly colored blazer to protect yourself from the blazing air conditioner and you’re good to go.
This bodycon dress is perfect for an hour or two of bottomless mimosas. You can dress it up or down based on the brunch location with either a pair of heels or sandals.
Shorts can be dressy too, as seen on Solange. Pair this outfit with a pair of flats or sandals and a cute purse and you’ll be brunching in style.
Going on a dinner date or a nice walk through the park? Then pair a button-up with a pair of boyfriend jeans. Dress it up with a pair of pumps and a clutch or dress it down with some flats.
Show off those curves in a tight bodycon dress. The perfect amount of simplicity and sexiness, bodycon dresses are versatile and can be worn for any date. Pair with some heels or sandals of your choice and strut your stuff.
For those day parties that are in a park or someone’s backyard, a dashiki will be a perfect. They are gorgeous, and light. Pair yours with shorts or spandex (don’t want to flash someone when you’re twerking) and some sneakers or sandals.
Is your day party more of a classy rooftop event? No problem! Grab a a-line skirt, a loose blouse, and some gladiators and you’ll be breaking necks.
Getting ready for a night full of dancing at the club? Ditch your little black dress and grab a white one! The contrast of white on melanin is sure to get you stares at the club. Add a clutch in a bright color such as blue, pink or orange, and you’re good to go.
Ditch the jacket and head to all the bars in this outfit. Not only is it sexy, it’s also perfect for the heat with the mesh shirt and skirt combo.
