Summer comes with the promise of pool parties, beach days, and all the fun activities that get our adrenaline going. While we take our sundresses and skirts out to welcome the season, we are greeted with that not so great summer souvenir. AKA sweat, sweat, and more sweat. On one of those sticky summer days, I have to let go of my chic dressy outfits. But surviving through the humid weather doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style. And so, this blog is all about dressing smartly. In my case, with this racerback tank top.
On one such 90-degree summer day, we planned a little picnic and taking our dogs out to the park. Some might take a raincheck, but I refuse to let a little extra hotness and humidity dampen my mood. So I took this racerback tank top out of my collection of warm weather essentials and got ready for the day. I got this bright blue top for only $10 and found myself relying on it every now and then. The selection changes from year to year but I find that I’m always able to find something similar. Amazon and H&M always have some great affordable options.
Tank tops, t-shirts, or camis, whatever I add to my summer wardrobe, one thing that I always pay attention to is the fabric. Instead of polyester, nylon, and other synthetic materials, go for cotton or linen. Both of which are incredibly soft, lightweight, and breathable. This racerback tank top got me through some of the hottest days this summer, thanks to its cotton material and relaxed fit. The pop of color gives me an extra dose of pizzazz.
Another reason I gravitate towards tank tops is that they’re super easy to style. You could wear it with wide-legged pants, ripped jeans, or even skirts and still rock it. I put on a pair of high-waisted denim jeans because I was going for a kind of one-tone outfit. I tucked my top in and voila! An effortlessly stylish outfit in just a few minutes. I usually finish off the look with sandals or sneakers, depending on my mood. A delicate accessory or two is optional. But if you want a little splash of glamor, adding a couple of stacked chains or a necklace is a good idea.
This easy outfit is ideal for a hot summer day. It prevents you from melting away and does so without compromising on style quotient. What’s your go-to summer style? Tell me in the comments below. See some more summer looks HERE.
