When it comes to beating the summer heat, we have a few tricks up our sleeves for looking and staying cool when the temperature skyrockets. Don’t let hot weather keep you from showcasing your best style. Stay fabulously chic while feeling cool with these tips.

Wear lightweight fabrics

Cotton, natural fibers, mesh and other cutout fabrics will allow your skin to breathe. Light weight garments create a more comfortable and airy feeling on the body.
