It’s annoyingly hot outside in the city, which leads me to the topic of how to dress in/for the heat. I get this question a lot – especially in the summer. Women (of all ages) tend to become more self-conscious in the summer for obvious reasons. Heat = sweat = less clothing = more body exposed.
A really good summer outfit? A flowy skirt, belted button-down, sandals, and one cool piece of jewelry. And you’re done.
Simple, solid colors are the most flattering and least juvenile. This skirt is from ShapeFX and actually has a stomach-slimming panel at the waist. Wear with a loose button-down that you can blouse over a belt (worn lower on the hips). One bold piece of jewelry – preferably with color – adds oomph.
