With summer under underway, complete with humid wind and a scorching sun, figuring out what to wear on a given day can be challenging. If you’ve only thought about how to keep cool in the heat then you’re not alone. In fact, the idea of looking “stylish” may be the last thing on your mind. I get it.
I’ve never really had a summer “uniform” per say but I knew that dresses, linen pants and shorts were on my short list growing up. Whatever I wore had to be summer appropriate lest I fall victim to trickles of sweat running down my back. The last thing you want to feel is sweat running down your back that makes you panic and think a mosquito or gnat has found it’s way under your shirt. Neither of these things are ideal.
To help beat the heat, turning to a pair of shorts works. Sometimes “denim” comes to mind when we think about shorts BUT there are a variety of shorts options to choose from. Said options are linen, poplin, cotton, cargo, pleated, Bermuda, etc. While I love a good pair of denim shorts, I decided to try my hand at a pair of poplin shorts from Zara (on sale for $19.99!). They kept me as cool as physically possible in the hot weather and I didn’t have to worry about sweating profusely in this light weight crop top (similar here and here) from Pretty Little Thing.
