We know, we know: You're probably not thinking about what you're going to wear the rest of the month right this minute, because odds are you'll be in a bathing suit all weekend long. But, once post-July 4th weekend hits, you will have to get fully-dressed — and in 80 to 90 degree heat, no less. The funny part about needing to figure out said outfits in said weather, though, beyond the fact that it's hot and sticky and really, really humid, is that most warm-weather clothing items are actually quite divisive. Capris, shorts, wearing a bathing suit as a top. It takes a fashion risk-taker to really go all-in.
If you don't feel like you've hit your peak summer style potential just yet, allow the 31 outfits ahead (one for each day of the month) to provide enough inspiration for all of July. There's daywear, evening wear, office-appropriate combinations, and pieces that are pretty much meant for partying. Time to get creative (and stay cool in the process).
That whole bathing suit as a bodysuit thing? Works every time.
And, if you're really ready to go for it, try a bikini top as a bandeau with a pair of high-waisted pants.
Or, pair it with a wrap skirt on those extra-sweaty days.
For a more forgiving version of the Canadian tuxedo (we all know denim doesn't exactly bode well in the heat), try a looser, oversized button-up and some lightweight, cropped jeans.
Keep that red, white, and blue going all month long.
Summer nights out call for low-maintenance outfits that look (and feel) cool. Pair your go-to skinny jeans with a silky top (try a fun pattern and a non-tank top silhouette) and kitten heels for something that looks like it took a whole lot of effort (even if it didn't).
We're still not over the allure (and ease) of a matching set. This navy-based floral option is breezy and bright, and works for those oddly cooler July days.
Ditto goes for this camel version.
Oh hello, sunglasses of the summer. We're only halfway through the season, which means there's still time to grab a colored-lens pair for yourself.
Are those...capris? And do they...look cool? This all-white outfit may just have us sold on the knee-high (knee-low?) pant. Now, where's the yacht?
