Hot days and humid nights are more often a formula for outfit disaster than perfect style. Fortunately, a striped tee that calls to mind chic Summer style icons like Audrey Hepburn or Jean Seberg is an easy starting point for a no-fail outfit formula. Just add a breezy mid-length skirt (too short and too tight is never fun when it's hot outside), and finish off with a little sophistication via a great pair of espadrilles or sandals. All you have to think about is what jewelry you'll wear — maybe a great statement necklace for dinner out — and decide where you're going. Shop every iteration of our perfect outfit below.
