The hottest time of the year is here, but you certainly don’t have to let the rising temperatures cramp your style. After all, the trends designed for the season are all about keeping you looking and feeling cool despite the scorching heat.

Rounded up below are seven wardrobe essentials for the summer that you can mix and match for all of the fun activities this season brings:

1. Babydoll dresses

Short babydoll dresses are perfect fashion picks for summer. These are the ideal length to keep your legs cool, and are often loose around the torso for proper airflow. You can wear these dresses on their own for a cute look, or take them from casual to edgy or glam with other summer essentials, accessories, and smart choices of footwear.


2. Billowy cotton dresses

If you want the most versatile holiday-making outfits, you cannot go wrong with long and flowy cotton dresses. They are light and breezy, and are appropriate pieces wherever you decide to travel to some much-needed R&R. Plus, cotton is one of the best fabric materials to wear when it’s hot because it’s a hypoallergenic material.

These pieces go with all kinds of footwear. What’s more, you can alter their shape and length using a belt, sash, or pin, by wearing a jacket or cardigan, or by knotting the hem.

3. Hats with ribbon ties

Sun protection is an absolute must for the summer, but it can be fashionable as well. Wide-brimmed hats are a hot trend this season, especially those with silk ribbon straps you tie under the chin.

There’s nothing like a great hat to give any summer look a charming and vintage appeal. And with the strong breeze the season brings, you’ll be happy to have the silk ribbon straps to keep your sun protection accessory in place.

4. Loose T-shirts

T-shirts never go out of style because they offer so many styling possibilities. You can knot the hem for an instant cropped top, neatly tuck them into mom jeans, or just wear them the way they are for that hip yet edgy Billie Eilish brand of street look.

For the summer, they are perfect to pair with deconstructed or distressed bottoms, pleated skirts, and overalls, which have been a trend since the previous year. You really cannot go wrong with loose T-shirts because they are great to wear when you do not want to think too hard about an outfit to look good.

5. Headscarf

Keep your hair and sunglasses in place with a headscarf around your face. This 1930s trend is popular yet again, and it provides a nice touch of glamour to any overall look.

Channel your inner 1930s starlet to rock a headscarf with any outfit. But, more than its style impact, you will appreciate how truly functional a headscarf is. It’s an excellent cover-up for a bad hair day, and it keeps hair away from your face, especially when it’s windy. Plus, you can even wear it as a hair tie to rein in your locks and pair it with a hat.

6. Wicker bags

These are believed to be the top accessories of the season, and fashion houses are well-aware of it. Wicker bags come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they harmoniously go with any summer outfit.

The big bags are perfect for picnics and a day at the beach. Meanwhile, the small hand and shoulder bags provide a dainty vibe to summer getups; they do not hold much, but nobody will say they’re not pretty, especially when worn with monochromatic attire.

7. Airy linen pants

These have got to be the most versatile bottoms for the summer. You can wear linen pants anywhere because they hold their structure well, and the open weave of the fabric can keep you fresh throughout a hot day.

You can pair it with practically anything: a bathing suit, a long-sleeved shirt, a boxy T-shirt, a blazer, and even a long dress. They are your all-occasion bottoms for the season because you can wear them to run errands, to work, and all the holiday-making you have planned.

There’s no arguing that hot weather can make looking polished and pretty a challenge. However, if you have smart summer pieces in your style arsenal such as the ones listed above, dressing to impress will not require much effort at all.
