Summer Looks to Stay Cool

As the calendar flips into May, temperatures in Dallas steadily rise. Summer is here! Dallasites have become accustomed to the 100+ degree weather that defines the city throughout the summer and early fall months. It can be a struggle as comfortable wardrobe options shift away from sweatshirts and leggings.

The classic look of athletic shorts and baggy t-shirts are not always appropriate for summer events, so the question arises: how do you dress cute without melting? Believe it or not, there are affordable options to keep your looks cool, both regarding look and temperature. Amateur fashion blogger, Electra Ford, commented on her techniques for beating the weather.

I always think it is easiest to stay cool in a light dress, they are easy to throw on over a swimsuit, and keep you cool with no added weight,” Ford said.

Fabrics such as linen and cotton are more breathable and practical for summer days. While keeping in mind that this option requires more sunscreen, tank-tops are perhaps the most comfortable option, perfect for pairing with printed shorts or skirts.

Summer is also characteristically known for the time to come out of hibernation and get some vitamin D. While a very common goal is utilizing the sun to become a few shades darker, it is important to remember sunscreen is just as crucial as your cute skin-showing outfits. Freshman Minje Kwun commented on her summer looks capturing both fashion and the sun.

“Because I want to tan at every opportunity possible, I pair shorts with short-sleeved tops or sleeveless tanks for maximum sun exposure. I love wearing white or light-colored clothes and accessories during the summer,” Kwun said.

As temperatures rise outside, pools become increasingly more inviting. Whether spending your summer’s in the pool or by the beach, solid colored swimsuits are in style this year, and patterns such as stripes and small floral patterns.

“My favorite place to shop for swimsuits is Solid & Striped,” Ford said.  

Summer trends this year call for prints matched with coordinating solid colors, (ex. floral skirt with a white top, or a striped shirt with plain shorts). This trend is easy to follow, a simple trip to NorthPark Mall presents options such as Zara, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and H&M that offer options perfect for any summer look.

The most popular accessory this summer are hair ties. Parisian inspired scrunchies with attached bows or bandanas are adorable ways to keep your face and neck extra cool. These accessories along with small framed sunglasses and bucket hats are fashionable yet functional ways to spice up your outfit. As for shoes, opt away from tennis shoes and sneakers.

“The straw/espadrille platform sandals of any color are a necessity,” Kwun said.

If you’re looking for a more affordable shopping excursion as well as an adventure, head to one of Dallas’ many thrift stores for bargains on tons of summer clothes. St. Vincent de Paul’s, Out of Closet, and CitySquare are all well-rated and popular thrift stores that also benefit local charities.
