Staying cool in the summer heat makes it hard to be fashionable, and dressing up in the heat is equally as difficult. This Fashionista stays cool in a strappy sundress and floppy sunhat. White lace is one of summer’s hottest (no pun intedend) fabrics, especially in pieces like shorts and dresses, making it one of summer's must-haves.This sleevless piece with a cutout back is perfect for the summer heat but the trend can also be practical for fall with long sleeves and a higher neckline.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Yera Ha: A fusion of girly romantic and preppy urban; it really depends on my mood and the setting.
CF: What beauty product can you not live without?
YH: Three things: Johnson & Johnson’s baby oil for right after a shower, Aveeno Daily Moisturizing lotion and Victoria’s Secret Love Spell. People often tell me I have the softest skin and I think it’s gotta be because I’m obsessed with moisturizing!
CF: Fill in the blank: I can't live without my…
YH: …glass of lemon water first thing in the morning. It’s a new regimen I took on after reading that it works wonders for your skin and also for your body’s hydration, and it’s absolutely true. I’m addicted. Everyone should do it.
CF: What is your favorite piece in your closet right now?
YH: It might be my salmon-pink mini dress from J.Crew with a fun bow-cinched top that I’ve only worn once because I can’t bear to wear it on any ordinary day…or this versatile chambray top with a crochet back I recently got from H&M.
How To: For this Fashionsita’s look start with a white lace skirt, a pair of shorts (these are my next purchase) or a dress and add a floppy sunhat in a neutral color. Top the look off with some scattered bracelets and a statement purse. The best part about a summer staple is that you can dress it up or down. Add a pair of heels and a cute headband for a night out and throw on a leather jacket to make your look edgier. For a different look add a chambray shirt and tie it at the waist while pairing it with combat boots. With a staple like this the possibilities are endless.
