Don’t get me wrong, living in the sunshine state definitely has its perks. However, summertime in Tallahassee can get very hot without a beach around. Unfortunately during a heat wave, one of the biggest fashion mistakes, showing too much skin, is commonly made. Sometimes we feel that covering less during a heat wave is the best way to keep cool, but we all know this can lead to too much skin with booty shorts, mini skirts or crop tops. This Fashionista shows us how to beat the heat without being too revealing with one simple rule: it’s all about the length.
I have always been a fan of the crop top trend, but I know I wouldn’t feel comfortable showing so much skin. This Fashionista shows a great option for those of you who feel like me. Her fringed tank is the perfect length in showing just enough midriff while still covering it at the same time. The fringe gives the length to make you feel confident while still giving the illusion of a crop. Try this fringed crop by Topshop for a crop that anyone could feel amazing in.
This Fashionista paired her top with a longer length pair of distressed denim shorts. These are not as short as the frowned upon “booty short,” but are no where near as long as the Bermuda length. These mid lengths are ideal for beating the heat in the summertime. J.Crew offers different options of these styles including my personal favorite in a cuffed denim.
One Simple Change: Swap the shorts for a flowy maxi skirt and some sandals and you will be perfectly styled for a music festival.
