As temperatures soar this summer, it’s a smart move to choose colors and styles that will keep you cool. With so many new silhouettes and color combos this season, you can surely find fashions to beat the heat in style.
The peasant blouse is back and is a popular summer choice. This drawstring neckline can transform this ethnic style into an instant off-the- shoulder style. In addition to the traditional loose sleeves, you can find some styles in sleeveless or cap sleeves. Update your look by choosing styles with cut-outs, lace or mesh.
Although white is a standard color in peasant blouses, any pastel can give a bright summery look. Pink, yellow, mint green or soft blue are colors that give a cool feeling. Small prints are also popular especially florals, paisley or stripes.
Jeans are a wardrobe staple that can easily be transformed for summer. Choose a short cut-off style or longer Capri style to keep you cooler. White jeans are so stylish with the right accessories. You can go from day to night by switching sneakers for fancy sandals and adding a sparkly top.
Don’t be limited to denim when choosing jeans. Linen, cotton and cotton blends also work well. For fancy or evening wear, silk is a good choice. All of these fabric choices are lighter weight and cooler than denim.
According to fashion website, the fashion hit for this year is the little white dress. Like its counterpart in black, this dress can be dressed up or down for any occasion. For a poolside lunch, a basic shift in white cotton or linen is the perfect outfit. Add a lace or silk jacket and you have a sophisticated evening outfit.
It’s cool to go sleeveless to keep cool in the sun. But go into an air conditioned office and you’re bound to get the chill of your life. Good Housekeeping features a sleeveless long white dress with a low back in a gauzy cotton. They’ve added an attractive cardigan in matching fabric to be put on when you go inside.

Cover ups or jackets can still keep you cool in summer. Choose lightweight fabrics like chiffon, lace, mesh or nylon blends. Choose a sleeve length from short sleeve to long sleeve. Jacket lengths can be cropped to wear with a skirt or jeans or longer for more coverage.
