No matter if it is sunny, rainy or cold outside, having the appropriate clothing to stay comfortable and look your best is key to being successful and feeling great in any climate condition. Below are some fool-proof outfits to wear no matter the season!
When temperatures soar, lightweight fabrics that breathe can be an indispensable ally. A lightweight button down shirt paired with joggers could prove very helpful.
1. Warm Weather
When the humidity hits, you need clothing that will wick away moisture and dry quickly to avoid that sticky sensation. Opting for natural fabrics like cotton, linen and bamboo which are soft yet breathable makes the best sense; opt for comfort over style!
Lightweight button-down and skirt combos are an easy and timeless way to stay stylish in the heat of summer. Pair this look with some stylish slingback heels and an eye-catching woven shoulder bag, for maximum re-wearability throughout the season and for multiple events.
Linen is an incredible fabric to wear all year-round, but particularly beneficial in hotter conditions due to its breathability. A linen skirt makes an excellent pairing with silk camisole – and can make for the ideal outfit when out and about on an otherwise scorching hot day! When combined together they make for the ideal ensemble for casual lunch with friends or running errands in comfort.
Pleated midi skirts are a summer classic. Not only can they keep you cool while looking polished, they're an easy way to keep cool in any weather condition. To complete this look, style it with a lightweight blazer and trendy sneakers for an ensemble you can wear at any warm-weather event.
2. Cool Weather
As temperatures decrease, layers become an invaluable way of keeping you warm without feeling trapped inside. But when layering for work or going out on casual evening dates, finding outfits that don't scream “I'm wearing an insulated parka and three sweaters!” can be challenging.
To achieve the perfect cold-weather look, add splashes of color with accessories that add interest. Ballet pink, sage green or light minty blue accessories can make any look stand out while providing just enough warmth if necessary. Finally, don't forget that leather jackets always add extra layer of protection if necessary!
Jumpsuits are an effortless, cute winter look when it comes to running errands or grocery shopping. When combined with a long wool coat and knee-high leather slouch boots, a jumpsuit becomes an appropriate and preppy ensemble that works for everything from morning Target runs and Starbucks visits, to afternoon drop off lines. To keep both hands free for work or drop-off lines, opt for crossbody bags.
Consider styling a long flannel shirt over a plain top, adding straight leg jeans and heeled ankle booties, for an eye-catching winter concert outfit idea. Don't forget a hat to protect against the elements!
3. Rainy Weather
If you're venturing out on a wet day, try layering up to keep moisture at bay. Jogger pants can tuck easily into rain boots while drying much faster than jeans (which often remain damp for an extended period). Furthermore, pair your outfit with waterproof shoes that make donning them effortless so as to minimize wasted time standing in puddles!
Bring style to any rainy-day look by opting for a chic trench coat. Perfect for layering over mini dresses or neutral separates, this stylish piece can keep you dry without distracting from your overall ensemble. For something a bit more playful and trendy, why not choose a colorful trench that incorporates one of this season's fashion trend colors?
Ponchos make for great rainy-day wardrobe solutions; wear one over your skirt or dress and pair it with a crossbody bag to allow hands-free access to an umbrella. A raincoat combined with a hoodie and pair of sneakers are another effective rainy-day outfit option; to add polish, pair these accessories with stylish boots that complement the jacket and you have yourself an ideal transition look from summer into fall/winter wardrobe!
4. Hot Weather
Summer heat can make even those with the most versatile wardrobe feel oppressed, so choosing fabrics and silhouettes that allow your skin to breathe naturally are essential for enjoying a pleasant day out. Look for lightweight weaves that won't cling to you while looser designs allow air flow freely.
To stay cool in summer heat, select accessories like a wide-brim hat that covers your neck, shoulders and arms while shielding from harmful sun rays. Also essential are shoes with breathability – leather or cork styles are better at helping regulate body temperature than vinyl or plastic options, and trainers with mesh panels should help promote airflow around feet.
Denim shorts can make any casual outfit feel chic when paired with a button-down shirt, T-shirt and ballet flats. If you want to add some interest to this casual ensemble, cinch your waist with a belt before finishing it off with a chic woven shoulder bag for a complete look.
When dressing for hot weather, light, airy clothing that keeps you cool while also flattering your figure is key. From running errands to heading to the beach, using this outfit formula can make getting dressed less of a hassle each morning.
