The Sweet Details

Let’s go back to that original, hot day outfit of shorts & a tank top. Seriously the best & most comfortable thing to wear in the heat besides a bikini. To boost the cute factor but maintain the comfort, let’s re-imagine this look just a bit.

Shorts

Instead of a pair of athletic shorts or denim shorts, why not try a pair of high waisted, loose fitting shorts in another color or print. Adding some detail, or something out of the ordinary really elevates the entire look. These white shorts I’m wearing are a total Zimmermann dupe & are under $20! Not only are they cute & affordable, but the material is light & super breathable making them super comfortable to wear on even the hottest of days.

Tank Top

If you’re wearing a great high waisted pair of shorts, I recommend pairing it with a cropped tank top. Don’t shy away from cropped tops too quickly because just because they are cropped, doesn’t mean you have to show any skin. Cropped just means it’s shorter than the usual tops, but if you’re wearing high-waisted shorts, the cropped top can meet the shorts perfectly at the waist.

To take it up a notch on the cute scale, find a tank top with interesting design details. This gingham top (similar here) has a classic square neck with ruffled straps & a lovely tie in the back. Tie back tops are so cute & fun to wear this time of year. Whether you go with a tie back top or not, finding a top with details such as ruffles, buttons, bows, etc. will totally up your fashion game.

Don’t Forget The Accessories!

On hot summer days, the last thing I want to wear is a cross body bag. Maybe it’s just me, but I start to feel trapped under there, plus the added sweat. Pass. I tend to gravitate towards top handle or satchel bags for that very reason. This bamboo bag has gotten so much love over the past couple of years & I still just love the way it goes with outfits & is a great conversation piece. The structure & lines of this bag bring so much texture & depth to a look.

Earrings are a great & easy way to look cute on hot days. I’m totally obsessed with these strawberry earrings I found for under $10! I mean how perfect for summer are they?! If not these, then you know I love a good pair of floral earrings. Also, I’m loving this heart pair at the moment. (I can’t stop wearing them!)

Don’t be afraid to have a bit of fun with your sunglasses. Try a fun new color or shape & just rock them.

Lastly, wear a hat. Most likely, if it’s hot & you’re outside, that means the sun is out. Look cute & protect your face with a nice straw hat. If it’s too hot to wear your hair down, wear it in a low pony with the hat like I did here.

How To Get The Look

My Dolce & Gabbana look is all about mixing prints, textures, & most of all COLOR! These are things D&G definitely does not shy away from & neither should you. The idea for this look first came from this dress I found at Goodwill last summer. It immediately reminded me of D&G resort wear & I knew I had to create a look with it. (similar dresses here & here) To add a bit of drama to this outfit, I layered this sheer pussy bow top underneath (also worn here & here). Then it was time for a bit of print mixing, so I added my zebra shoes to contrast with the floral dress. Sticking to the animal theme, I knew this blush bag would be perfect for this look because of the gold chain strap & the lion head clasp.

Then it came down to accessories. I’m totally obsessed with the D&G large & in charge jeweled earrings. Whether they’re floral, fruity, or just big, they bring the sparkle & color big time. I found these colorful floral jeweled earrings for only $4! What a steal! Of course, I had to include this gold chain bracelet with pendant coins because is quickly becoming one of my everyday accessory. To finish it off, I wore this super fun flower crown (because, why not?!) with a fun & interesting pair of sunnies.

It’s All About Confidence

Wearing a Dolce & Gabbana inspired look is all about confidence. It’s about how you wear the bold colors & prints & jewels with pride. Let me tell you, people will stare, but I’m saying let them stare! D&G, just like F&F, is all about fearless fashion. Dare them to stare. Rock your look. Be creative & be bold! Remember, more is MORE!
