August might be the most confusing month to dress for–you’ve got stores already into the fall season with jackets and boots, but you’re still trying not to sweat in your cutoffs and tank. If you’re feeling that “I have nothing to wear” dilemma that is all too real in this heat, here are 12 perfect august outfits styled by our favorite fashionistas. If they can brave the heat and still look cute, we can too (at least that’s what I tell myself!)
You can’t really get much more classic than a great pair of trousers. These bloggers styled them to perfection with a casual tee or blouse and a simple pair of heels. When the August humidity hits, you don’t want to be sporting too many layers (accessories included) so keep it simple with a thin belt and a simple bracelet or cuff.
For those days that it’s just too hot to get dressed or move even more than a foot away from your A.C. Whether it’s a patterned dress or a simple black tank dress, you can never go wrong with a good maxi. Throw on a cargo jacket over it if you need another layer.
Yes, you can revert back to your infant years of rocking a onesie, and still look cool, I promise. I was a little skeptical of the whole romper trend until I tried on a printed Zara jumpsuit back in May and was hooked. Literally any time I don’t know what else to wear, I throw on a long-sleeved romper, and a cardigan and I’m out the door. The trick is to make sure to pick a print that’s not too overwhelming.
Even though I don’t really believe in the no white after Labor Day rule, August might be the last time you can really sport an all white ensemble without getting a few head turns (plus it might be your last chance to show off that killer tan you’ve been working on all summer).
