Staying Cool: Our Favorite Lightweight Summer Clothing To Wear This Summer

Summer is almost here! For some of us, it’s the best time of year. You can wear easy, breezy outfits and get pleasantly sun-kissed. For others, summer is overbearingly hot and you may have trouble trying to find the perfect lightweight outfit to wear to beat the heat. Don’t worry! With this essential lightweight summer clothing, you can get dressed in the morning with complete confidence and keep your cool all day.

1. Flowy Tanks & Camis

When it is 90 degrees or hotter outside or the humidity is at an all-time high, you’ll naturally want to reach for something flowy and lightweight from your closet in the morning. Loose-fitting tanks and camis are perfect for this type of weather! Choose breathable materials that will keep your body cool. Opt for strappy camis in fun patterns or flowy tank tops to pair with some cute shorts.

2. Drawstring Shorts

While denim shorts are surely a summer staple, they may not always be the preferred choice while you’re out and about in the scorching sun or if you’ll be active throughout the day.

For those heavy-duty walking days in the heat, get yourself a pair of drawstring shorts. This soft apparel is a lightweight summer clothing essential. You can wear them with a t-shirt, a tank top, or even a swimsuit!

3. Loose, Floaty Dresses

Flowy, light, and airy fabric is what you need to keep cool during the hot months and lightweight dresses do just that. If you’re anticipating an extremely hot day, leave the form-fitting dress behind. A loose-fitting summer dress will allow any summer breeze to keep you cool and comfortable. Plus, you can wear it over a swimsuit for a day out at the pool or the beach!

4. Baggy Cotton T-Shirts

You know how you see people wearing t-shirts on the hottest summer days and wonder how they are comfortable? The secret is natural fibers. Natural fibers like cotton and linen are designed to let the airflow through the fabric and keep you cool. If you have a natural fiber tee, you won’t be smothering your body in dense polyester, which is guaranteed to trap your body heat.

5. Bralettes

If a top requires a little extra layering, ditch the full-length cami and opt for a cute bralette instead! Pick up a few bralettes in neutral colors and maybe a few in popping colors to coordinate with your outfits. Not only are these delightful lightweight summer outfit essentials cute, but they’re also designed to be loose and comfortable.
