17 Ways To Dress (And Feel) Cool During A Summer Heat Wave

Fabric and silhouette are key to getting through the hot summer months in style.

What to Wear in a Heat Wave

We love summer as much as the next person, but sometimes when temperatures spike that love turns a bit sour. A heat wave — when everything is inevitably going to end up drenched in sweat — makes figuring out what to wear especially difficult.

We've learned there are a few key pieces to get you through those sweltering months. Choosing lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton help keep you cool (versus heavier materials like denim). Airy silhouettes in the form of rompers and sundresses are a must. From wide-leg cropped pants to linen dresses, these are the heat-defying items you can wear on repeat all summer long.
