In the midst of a summer heatwave, I’m tempted to leave my closet behind and strictly walk around in my swimsuit from now until the turn of the season. All dramatics aside, I’ve resorted to wearing flowy dresses and barely-there sandals to help escape the summer sun. In today’s Style Steals I’m selfishly sharing four trends that have helped me keep cool on the hottest days. From everyone’s new favorite florals to one more swimsuit you should be adding to your arsenal, I hope you love these pieces and their price points as much as I do. Let’s get to it…

Baby Blue Florals

I’d go as far as saying florals are acceptable every season, but these baby blue summer florals have to be my favorite right now. Splayed across and breezy sundress, this pattern was made for the sunshine (and perhaps a summer soiree).

Raffia Slides

Raise your hand if you have at least five pairs of slides in your closet. I know I’m guilty! What’s one more pair then, right? These raffia slides are so neutral, you can wear them with all of your go-to summer essentials.

Gingham Swimsuits

In addition to florals, gingham was made for this season. These two swimsuits come in the sweetest pattern, but one is only a fraction of the price! You can bet I’ll be adding the J.Crew bikini to my swimsuit drawer ASAP.

Ruffle Sandals

We’ve featured the Who What Wear sandals below last month, but they’re just as fun in this punchy shade of red. If you’ve been searching for a statement piece to complete an ensemble, look no further.
