Oh, sweet summertime—full of long hazy days of perpetual sunshine, summer Fridays, and of course, sweat. Unfortunately, this is one of those unpleasant, unavoidable side effects of the aforementioned long days of sunshine. As we enter the dog days of summer and temperatures rise in all parts of the country (even typically fair-weathered Los Angeles is currently experiencing major humidity), the last thing you want to have to think about is putting together an outfit that's chic but also won't leave you dripping.

This is why I turned to our community of innovative readers to do the legwork for me and piece together ensembles that not only look cool but keep you feeling that way in late-July humidity. From breezy minidresses to unexpected athleisure pairings, I've gathered 19 outfits stylish women turn to when it's too hot to function. So when wearing nothing isn't an option, these are the next best thing. Go ahead, and take a scroll through and consider your next few weeks of outfits found.
