This summer has been an extremely hot one - seriously! I enjoy the warm weather, but I have to admit, I'm more of a fan of autumn, when I can layer up and break out all of my knits and booties!
When the heat is on and the humidex is amplifying it, I can find it challenging to dress comfortably. Luckily because I love layering so much, I have a lot of beautiful silk tops, which are perfect for warm weather. With shorts, jeans or even maxi skirts, a silk tank or blouse like this favorite from Helmut Lang adds instant cool factor - both temperature-wise and style-wise!
I also like layering jewelry, especially bracelets. During this latest heat wave I've lightened up a bit and have favored one or two, rather than stacking some of my heavier ones. Add a few sleek rings and you have a cool, minimalist look at its best. I love Alexis Bittar's lucite collection, like the ring shown here - it's light, neutral and goes with everything.
How do you keep cool when it's hot as hell outside? OK - enough about the heat, I'm off to get a huge iced coffee!
