WHAT TO WEAR: Heat Wave

When the temperature reaches an unbearable 90 degrees, it might be easy to find yourself with a style dilemma. Sure, there are plenty of summer uniform options like maxi dresses, rompers or even the foolproof pairing of tank tops with shorts. The problem is that these options might seem too simple at times. In this week’s edition of WHAT TO WEAR, the featured Fashionista has the answer to your dilemma: take a simple outfit and add your personal flair.

This Fashionista opted for the third uniform: a tank top with shorts. Graphic T-shirts never go out of style and the one that she is wearing here with a palm tree instantly brings my mind to the beach. The pale blue hue also adds a pop of color to her neutral color palette. This Fashionista made her outfit more original by taking a graphic tee and making it into a tank top — this is an easy way to recycle a shirt from spring to make it appropriate for summer’s heat. DIY tank tops layer nicely with bandeau tops and look great with shorts, as well as skirts. Flip flops and heat are two reasons to show off a cute summer pedicure.

The motto for this look is “less is more.” With a stylish pair of sunglasses to protect her eyes and a cool watch for punctuality, this Fashionista kept her accessories to a minimum for a no-fuss day in the sun. Her other accessory, a backpack, holds all of her essentials so that she is ready for whatever the day sends her way.

One Simple Change: Black shorts are super versatile, which makes them great to wear all summer long. Switch the casual tank top out for a chiffon blouse and add a pair of platform sandals for an outing with friends. Substitute the backpack for a chic purse to have a look perfect for the occasion.
