Spring has revved up, we are on the cusp of summer and the temperatures in Texas are rising—leaving you feeling hot, stuffy and ready for a change in your wardrobe.
As you prepare to shop for the season—your vacations, BBQs and events—style is essential and comfort is key.
Here’s a list of my favorite styles to keep you cool during those hot Texas months. All of these looks are breathable yet breathtaking. You can achieve style this season and beat the Texas heat.
For Date Night
Shop local and hit Tootsies for all your flowy dress needs. I love this Bohemian-inspired dress by Rixo London. Flowy dresses do not cling to the body and allow air to filter through leaving you refreshed and cool. Add a cute pair of strappy sandals to this look and you have a chic ensemble for a gala or night out.
For the Weekend
I adore a great throw-on dress to run errands in the heat. They circulate air and are oh-so-comfortable. Try this crisp and cool midi dress by Free People for an effortless go-to on the weekends. Add a cute hat for protection from the harmful rays of the sun while looking great. I love this straw hat by Madewell for any look.
For BBQ Hosting
For backyard get togethers or a BBQ try a one-piece romper. They are airy, breathable, effortless and adorable. Lulus has an amazing assortment of rompers for every shape and size. I love this floral one (florals are on-trend this season) and it’s elevated casual. Pair with a little sandal or flip-flop and you have a put-together, casual look.
I love kimonos. They’re airy and they’re great for throwing over a tank or sleeveless dress, especially if you don’t want to reveal your arms. It is the perfect cool layering piece as they are sheer and lightweight. Wear this on-trend banana leaf kimono (found on shopbop) for brunch or even over a swimsuit as a cover up.
Jumpsuits are also on trend this season so make sure your wardrobe hosts one. They are great for throwing on yet still looking cute and put-together. Try this Apiece Apart jumpsuit found on Rent the Runway for your next vacation. Rent the Runway is a fabulous online rental shop where you can rent looks for your upcoming vacation, event or even to simply add some looks to your closet.
Find a gown that is chiffon for your gala season or evening wedding. It’s a breathable cool fabric and it looks stunning on as it flows. I found this amazing floral print dress by Windsor Store and it is so affordable. Pair with a metallic silver heel, clutch and earring and you have a gorgeous look for your Texas evening events.
