Hot-As-Hell Style: What to Wear When Nudity Isn't an Option

With most of us enduring the dog days of Summer, OnSugar blogger Temple of Glam decided to provide some sweet relief via the coolest, yet chicest clothes she could find. Read on to see her fabulous tips on how to stay cool without sacrificing style.

I felt a wave of sweat pour down my back; I was standing still.

I contemplated articles of clothing I could remove without getting arrested.

When the thought of donning clothes led to major heat anxiety (literally walking around my apartment disavowing every sartorial option that came to mind, "no-no-no, you will burst into flames!"), I knew it was time to take action (i.e. create a quick list of summer-proof clothes and find a good therapist):

Lemlem Adama Dress ($245)

When I longingly ogled an older woman's moo-moo, I vowed to find a chic (and age-appropriate) alternative. This handmade caftan-inspired dress is called a beach cover up, but its lightweight fabric and light color are ideal for this little heatwave we're having. Plus, it was designed by supermodel Liya Kebede.

Kimchi Trouser ($59)

Über-tight jeans aren't an option when it's like 100 degrees. At a complete loss for suitable pants to wear, I would have reached for these polyester pants in a heartbeat. Please don't hate on polyester btw; it's machine washable and it never needs to be ironed.

Geren Ford Sheer Panel Dress ($320)

This dress is barely there and it also happens to be super pretty. Truthfully, I don't think you can bend down in it though. But not for nothing, if you drop something, I'd suggest letting the universe have it; bending is a misuse of precious energy when it's Hades hot.
