When it comes to staying cool and covered in the hot summer months it’s all about choosing the right fabrics and fit. Summer doesn’t have to mean showing more skin, despite what you might see in stores, you just have to be a little more conscious of your style picks.  Even choosing items you would normally wear in a lighter color or floral print can be an easy transition, or simply adding a trendy accessory. Cotton, silk, chambray, linen and jersey are light and breathable fabric choices.  Stay away from constricting thicker rayon, wool or polyester fabrics.   Our Plvsh stylists did the hard work and chose some fashionable, breathable, and covered pieces for your summer wardrobe.

Loose Layers

  1. City Chic Kimono
  2. Nic + Zoe 4 Way Cardigan
  3. J. Jill Summer Garden Poncho
  4. Melissa McCarthy Front Tie Topper

Looser fitting pieces as layers allows for air flow and circulation underneath the garment, so you don’t feel as constricted.  A larger fitting garment also allows you to wear a tank or camisole underneath and still be covered.  Update a poncho for summer by choosing one in a colorful print.  Or swap out your favorite cardigan for a light knit option.

Maxi Skirts

  1. Foxcroft Print High Low Skirt
  2. Eloquii Button Front Maxi Skirt
  3. Ralph Lauren Maxi Skirt
  4. J. Jill Multiseam Maxi Skirt

Tight pants and jeans suffocate your legs in the summer heat, opt for a light maxi skirt instead.  They can even work for the office when paired with a professional top.  Dress it up for the weekend with a pair of heels or down with a lace up sandal, the option are limitless!   Plus they come in in so many fun prints and colors since they are very on trend this season.

Flowing Tops

  1. Sejour Rolled Sleeve Tunic
  2. NYDJ Floral Top
  3. Lucky Brand Medallion Print Blouse
  4. Eloquii Eyelet Top

Long or 3/4 sleeve tops in a light flowing fabric is the perfect one layer, more conservative, warm weather option.  Plus they are a great transitional piece for when fall comes around in a couple of months. Like the loose layer, the flowing fabric allows for air movement and breathability.
