Summertime in Texas can be described in three words: hot, hot, hot! Don’t get me wrong, the drinks, entertainment and fashion this season are cool, but the blistering weather has a tendency to overpower everything. With many events coming up in Addison – Taste Addison this weekend, Addison Kaboom Town! just around the corner, monthly Addison After Dark events and weekends full of happy hours and other activities – you don’t want to miss something because you are overheated! Stay fresh with these trendy, lightweight outfits, perfect for wearing to any Addison summer event.
Shorts and a Tank Top from BCBGMaxAzria
Nike shorts and a racerback tank top are great for the gym – but don’t exactly scream “fashionista” anywhere else. Upgrade this look with shorts and a tank from BCBGMaxAzria inside Galleria Dallas. The Geo Print Striped Short ($158) feature a fun geometric pattern of blue, yellow, orange and fuschia, overlaid with black stripes. The high-waisted design with looser-fitting legs make this a head-turning choice that you will love! Pair this with the neutral-but-not-boring Crochet Crewneck Tank Top ($128). This all-white blouse is made with a light linen jersey blend to prevent ugly sweat stains, and has a sophisticated crochet embroidery and zig-zag hemline for added dimension and style.
Romper and Sunhat from Francesca’s
Rompers are here to stay (yay!), probably because these all-in-one outfits are comfortable, chic and incredibly easy to style. For your next picnic at the park, where the dark blue Mariah Button Front Surplice Romper ($44) from Francesca’s at Village on the Parkway. The flowy romper has sleeves down to your elbows, a hemline that hits mid-thigh and a V-neck in the front and back. The wrap-around front is adorned with pretty buttons on one side for added flair. Complete the look with the gorgeous Marley Jean Band Panama Hat ($54), which is a wide-brimmed straw hat featuring a jean bow that wraps around the top and matches your romper! This chic hat will block you from the sun and cover up a bad hair day at the same time.
Crop Top and Comfortable Accessories from Neiman Marcus
Being comfortable is top priority at outdoor events – you don’t want to be wondering around Kaboom Town on sky-high heels, trust me! But that doesn’t mean you have to dress like a slob. Start with something light, like this Gal Meets Glam Button-Down Two-Piece Crop Top and Skirt from Neiman Marcus ($168). This all-white ensemble features a button-down cropped shirt that ties just over your belly button and a matching knee-length, button-down white skirt. On your feet, wear these fun Stuart Weitzman Pearline Platform Lace-Up Sneakers ($395), adorned with a splattering of pearls surrounded by golden borders. You’ll be ready to walk all over Town to show them off! No matter what event you are attending, it’s always a good idea to switch out your regular purse for a backpack! We love the Rebecca Minkoff Edie Quilted Leather Flap Backpack ($208), as it is a pink, quilted leather with an outside clasp and plenty of space inside for all the essentials – bug spray, sunscreen, shades, wallet and water bottle. When fashion’s latest trend is also incredibly practical, you have to go out and get proof!
