Happy summer, Dia & Co divas! Summer is by far my favorite season, but I know dressing for the heat can be tricky. With temperatures on the rise, it’s more important than ever to add items to your wardrobe that help hide sweat, keep the chub-rub away, and (most importantly) leave you feeling cool and comfy while still looking fabulous. Follow these tips, tricks to help you craft your warm-weather looks.

How To Style Casual Summer Denim

Denim is one of the most versatile fabrics we have in our style arsenal, and a good pair of jeans is perfect for a hot day outside! The Sara denim skirt includes distressed details that will have you wanting to wear it over and over again. Pair this item with the Riley Off the Shoulder Blouse from Vince Camuto. The lightweight fabric and flowy fit will be sure to keep you cool and the print and color will be key in helping hide any sweat stains that come your way. For added support, try a strapless bra as a finishing touch to tie this look together.

How To Style Unique Prints and Details

I love clothes with prints that make you stand out in a crowd, and this cami-tank is a fantastic option to do just that. Try this top out with the Sash Belt Trousers from CeCe. This item is the perfect length for showing off your favorite warm-weather footwear. The built-in belt will make tucking in this tank a breeze. To finish this look, add a pair of anti-chafing slipshorts under the trousers. This high-waisted plus-size shapewear item will be the perfect piece to make this outfit seamless, comfortable, and ready for a day out.

How To Style A Casual Dress for Any Occasion

Casual summer comfort doesn’t mean we can’t have a little glamour! The Gia midi dress is an elegant option ideal for a special occasion, and the breathable fabric will help keep sweat at a minimum. Wear this piece with the same strapless bra we used in our first outfit and this pair of seamless, sweat-wicking shorties. Grab a wide-brimmed hat, pair of wedges, and a clutch to round out this look for a night out, weekend on the town, or a trip to the ocean.

Summertime Tips:

When choosing your summer looks, keep these tips and tricks in mind:

  • Layer your looks with undergarments and plus-size shapewear that wick sweat and reduce chafing.
  • Find neutral fabrics (like whites and black) or bright colors with bold prints to reduce visible sweat stains. 
  • Opt for flowy, lightweight fabrics to keep you cool and comfy, especially when out in the sun.

I hope these outfit choices inspire you this season, and I can’t wait to see what kind of looks you come up with. Share your style with us on IG @diaandco with #MyDiaStyle.
