Once that June Gloom fog fades away from the LA beaches, summer really gets started around here from July through October. As temperatures climb, we’re looking for the coolest and most sustainable looks that’ll help us survive the heat in style…
8 Sustainable Pieces To Wear When It’s Too Damn Hot
ALOHAS Mina Linen Vest And Shorts | We’re drooling for this vest and short set from one of our ‘sustainable girl in the know’ brands, Alohas. We’ll be wearing sets like this for iced matcha latte runs and, if we’re lucky, a few summer weekend of out town.
Vitamin A Ophelia Beach Overall | The ultimate beach overall. This sweet one piece from Vitamin A caught our eye for easy trips to the beach and long hot afternoons at home over the old email box. A great piece for backyard BBQs, pool parties and beyond .
the right hair accessories | Take advantage of the heat and treat your hair before piling it up and out of your way. Pin hair up with this sustainable French pin by Machete, but start with an incredibly luxe hair mask from RANAVAT in the shower and follow-up with a light layer of Gisou hair oil after air drying. Let hair soak in all that goodness while pinned up in the heat!
Frank & Eileen Mary Classic Shirtdress | Too hot to put on pants? Who says you have to? This light and airy shirtdress was made for summer staycations — and packs pretty well too. Frank & Eileen’s shirtdress comes in multiple colors, fabrics and lengths.
Ocean + Main Upcycled Mykonos Caftan | An ode to the summer caftan. This sustainable version from Oprah-beloved Ocean + Main is one of the most flattering we’ve found. Swap out that worn-out lounge set at home for this cool caftan, that’s uber-chic and still oh so easy to wear.
Janessa Leone Alexei Hat | If you’re outside frequently in this heat, put a straw hat in rotation. We never tire of this Janessa Leone classic. Paired with a generous amount of sunscreen, this hat will let you enjoy that healthy morning sunlight while lessening the risk of sun damage to the face
Janessa Leone Tanner Straw Handbag | Carry a straw bag that’ll also hold your hat — genius for long days outdoors or vacation flights when you can’t fit that hat in your carry-on. We love a straw bag regardless, but the dual purpose leather straps on this bag make it a summer must that’ll never go out of style.
Hunza G Jean Striped Seersucker Bandeau Bikini | Who says you can’t stay in your swimwear? We featured Hunza G’s sustainable bikinis so much last summer — everyone we know has one of their flattering seersucker suits now! This easy to throw on bandeau bikini is perfect for those indoor-outdoor summer days. Pair with a cover-up of your choice — or don’t.
L*space X Hanna Montazami Lisola Cover-Up | This best-selling dress is the cover-up you can wear to dinner — as long as you’re on vacation. Because it’s knitwear, this cover-up can be dressed up or down for rooftop pools, long hot days at home, a trip to the beach and beyond.
