How You Can Look Effortlessly Cool In The Summer Heat

It can be hard to look cool during summer’s relentless heat, but these relaxed silhouettes, artistic prints and eccentric accessories will give you an undone elegance that transfers seamlessly from day to evening.

The Alfabeto

Juan Carlos Obando works a sporty, youthful edge into his dresses, and the Alfabeto gown is a perfect example in printed cobalt-blue hammered silk. The billowing, floor-skimming skirt keeps things elegant, while the under-bust drawstring, open back and wrapped waist detailing ensure it’s an entirely modern option. The dress is paired for day with Isabel Marant’s wraparound leather sandals.

Swooshes and Blocks of Color

Alexander Wang’s black accordion-pleated technical-fabric dress features a red, yellow and blue print that’s informed by an iconic Nike design, while Peter Pilotto combines a navy jersey fabric with curved panels in vibrant hues and a diaphanous, sheer-black skirt lining that’s visible at the hem, for a modern interpretation of psychadelic rock.
