Staying Chic in the Heat

As a stylist in Houston, I giggle when I’m asked about the top fashion trends in our city. Anyone that has lived here for more than one year knows that it’s all about survival first in what can be best described as incomprehensible heat and humidity during the months of June – early October.

Since today’s woman wears many hats, here are some inspirations and tips on how to look put together and current while running from your car to the a/c in various “real life” situations!

For Work

Thankfully, most industries are adopting the casual, less “Suitcentric” dress requirements. This is great because it not only allows us to show our personal style, but even more importantly we can be comfortable!

I look for easy natural fabrications that allow your skin to breathe, hence not trapping heat to your body. Ideally, cotton and linen blends (less wrinkling) that skim your silhouette lend to a flattering non fussy look. If you must go with a synthetic, opt for an easy breezy silhouette! Stay away from anything tight to your body if you can.
