As someone who tends to put comfort first whenever getting dressed—for any occasion—I’ve found that of all the seasons, dressing comfortably in the summer is probably the most difficult. I blame it on the weather, which not only rules out a lot of options due to the potential for overheating but also tends to limit you in terms of what just looks right for a warm day or night.
The good news, however, is that while it’s admittedly not easy, it’s definitely not impossible. All it takes is a little research, effort, and the occasional learn-from-your-mistakes moment. Since I’ve been through all of the above (and more), I figured that today I’d share some of the outfit ideas I think are not just comfortable for the season at hand but actually cool, too. To see, read about, and shop all nine of the looks, just keep scrolling.
