Shop In Style: Keep Your Cool

Jul 01, 2015 10:08AM ● Published by Dia

Rising temperatures don’t make it easy to stay cool this summer, but there are a few steps you can take to beat the heat. Whether you decide to take a dip in a new swimsuit or step out on a summer evening in an airy dress, you’ll have no problem staying stylish when the mercury soars.

1/ STRIPE WATERCOLOR FIT AND FLARE DRESS

 With pink and white watercolor-like stripes, this dress’ look is reminiscent of a strawberries and cream popsicle. Any tank dress is a cool idea for summer, and this number is perfect for a casual afternoon tea. Fitted with a belt that sits high on the waist, this dress needs just a cardigan and you’re set for evening drinks.

White House/Black Market, $160

2/ BLACK CARRYBAG BY REISENTHEL

Here’s the perfect picnic companion to bring along your white wine and cheese pairings. This black carrybag by reisenthel has a thermo inner lining and a tightfitting, zip-close lid. It has a sturdy, aluminum frame and durable, tear-proof polyester exterior. There is also an interior pocket with zipper closure, and collapsible handle and frame for compact storage. 

The Container Store, $69

3/ OMOROVICZA QUEEN OF HUNGARY MIST

Your skin can become dehydrated not only from the heat, but also from pool chemicals such as

  chlorine. As if you need an excuse to spritz on a refreshing mist, Omorovicza by Queen of Hungary is an aromatic toner made to refresh your skin. Although named after what was supposedly the world’s first recorded perfume, the mist isn’t heavy like perfumes tend to be. 

Sephora, $90

4/ TREASURE GARDEN 11-FOOT CANTILEVER UMBRELLA

 There’s no getting around spending time poolside during the summer season, but there’s no need to bake while you take a break. Not your average patio furniture, the cantilever umbrella by Treasure Garden spans 11 feet and provides 100 square feet of 

 coverage. The model pictured here is the octagon umbrella with red fabric and a bronze base. 

My Yard Art, $1,133

5/ ONE-PIECE BANDEAU SWIMDRESS

What says summer and keeping your cool better than a swimsuit? This nautical-inspired bandeau swimdress, named Red Carter, is part of a 30th Anniversary Collection and is an Everything But Water exclusive. The suit is made with underwire, removable push-up pad, and removable straps, and is 73-percent nylon and 27- percent Spandex. 

 Everything But Water, $159
