When it’s hotter than Teyana Taylor dancing in that Kanye West music video, you’re going to need a pass-out-proof plan for getting dressed in the morning. With help from this clever gal, we think we’ve figured it out—balance built-in airflow while retaining a put-together appearance. The strategic use of triangular vents and backless shoes create an entirely wearable summer ensemble.
The plunging neckline, easily achieved by setting a few buttons free, and mid-thigh front slit, made possible thanks to an ingenious wrap-style skirt, offer up much-needed breathability. The high-waist skirt is smartly cinched at the wearer’s natural waistline so the tiniest part of her frame is accentuated. Plus, we adore her cleverly knotted braided belt.
Cuffed and scrunched sleeves allow airflow and add a sense of effortless glamour. Mixing with footwear that aren’t closed-off, sweat-inducing flats is key—think slides, mules, slippers, or backless loafers.
