How to Dress for the Heat and Not Look Naked

Dressing for extreme heat can be very tricky as an adult. You want to feel like you’re naked without actually looking naked. Sure, crop tops and tiny shorts make you feel cool in a summer heatwave. But there are things called meetings where that clothing is not exactly appropriate. 

The other week I was in New York City with my friend Stephanie and we had a ton of meetings. So I figured it was the perfect opportunity to bring you some outfit ideas on what to wear to work when it’s hot out. Most of the outfits took us from day to night. And most of the accessories I wore are from Stephanie’s shop, Styled by Noir. She’s been so generous to offer Sydne Style readers a $100 gift card, too!

As for tips on what to wear in the heat? Here are my top tips from the video. Hope this helps if you’re trying to figure out what to wear when it feels like a hundred degrees outside!

  1.  Layer with lightweight materials.
  2.  Hide sweat with prints.
  3.  Use illusion necklines to keep cool.
  4.  Dress up tanks and tees with pencil skirts.
  5.  Stay comfy in block heeled sandals.

And thanks to 11 Howard for having us. We absolutely loved the our stay and you can see peeks into the hotel in the video!
