5 Fresh and Light Spring and Summer Outfits to Wear When It’s Sweltering Outside

When it gets sweltering outside, you’d want to dress up in easy, breezy outfits. Over-thinking your day time ensemble is a sure-fire way of frustrating yourself, not to mention inflicting serious discomfort.

So here are some ideas on how to keep it cool, keep it stylish and keep it sane on hot spring and summer days:

1. Pair up your origami skort with a cami top

Nothing says fresh quite like a basic cami top. Wear it with a skort from the past season to give it a summery vibe. Accessorize with a straw hat, a pair of ankle strap sandals and a crossbody bag for an outfit that boasts both form and function.
