30 Fashion and Beauty Items That Are Getting Me Through a Hot AF Summer

summer fashion and beauty buys



Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

While we're technically only about a month into summer, it's been hot AF outside for months here in LA. I'm not complaining per se—in fact I love getting to kick off the season a little early (humble brag). And because I've gotten a head start, I've already discovered the fashion and beauty items that are essential for getting through warm weather in style. From the best makeup setting spray to a t-shirt designed to keep your body cool, these 30 picks are perfect for super hot days—trust me.

BRB—I'm trading in my jeans for denim shorts.

This slip dress screams 'vacation' but I'd also wear it to a beach wedding. 

This double duty sunscreen keeps your skin protected from both UV rays and pore-clogging pollution.

The white drawstring detail takes these biker shorts to the next level.

This t-shirt is made with a special cooling fabric that helps your body stay 3 degrees cooler. Genius.

Pool slides you can wear even when you're not on vacation.

But if you do have upcoming travel plans, I highly recommend this carry on suitcase. Bonus points for the TSA-approved lock.

I rely on Calvin Klein's seamless thongs for all the white and sheer fabrics I wear during summer.

These chic open-toe sandals are perfect for showing off a colorful pedicure.

This dress comes in seventeen different colors, and at $45, I'll be buying it in at least a few of them.

This one-piece swimsuit doubles as a bodysuit. Just wait until you see the strappy back details.

No AC? No Problem. These lightweight pajamas are cute and keep you cool at night.

Tennis dresses are having a moment right now and are pretty freaking cute whether you actually play tennis or not.

Meet your new go-to top for work. But definitely style it with baggy shorts on the weekend too.

I dream about this red Prada bucket hat.

The deep plunge of this swimsuit is ideal for women with smaller cleavage like me.

Stash this roll-on deodorant in your gym bag, purse, or car and thank me later.

Speaking of gym bags, I'm eyeing this one. It's big enough to stash all your sweaty clothes while still being lightweight.

The netting and pearl details are everything.

Simple ribbed tanks are perfect for layering.

A neutral sandal for everyday wear.

This setting spray gives you a glow and prevents your makeup from smearing when temps rise. I like this travel size for stashing in my purse.

The mini skirt trend could not have come at a better time.

These sporty sneakers are comfy enough to wear all day long.

I rely on 100% cotton tanks on warm days and this corset style one just went straight to the top of my list.

Just add a sarong and your beach look is set.

I like this one with pom-pom details. Plus, on a really hot day a sarong is the only cover up you'll want to wear.
