The heat is on! In case you’re out of ideas on how to dress stylishly without melting under the brutal sun these days, the Teenage team has some ideas for you.

I’m not a frilly frock kinda girl so this is my version of a summer dress. I paired it with a cropped jacket and added a belt to give the outfit a bit more shape. I seldom wear sandals but this black pair with blue lining fits the whole outfit so well, I just had to wear it.

Sometimes it’s all about finding the right balance – I built my outfit around this romantic midi skirt with panelling mesh detailing at the hem. To keep the floral prints in focus, I styled it with a plain tank, some cute sandals, and a striking statement piece that adds the perfect pop of colour to the look.

Floral patterns are an unanimous favourite for summer, but it doesn’t always have to be bold and bright – you can choose to wear it in subtle ways as well. I went with a simple white dress (every girl needs to have a little white dress in their wardrobe!) with delicate blooms, and paired it with a chunky sweater to prevent the outfit from looking overly sterile.

Every time I put on a sundress, I’m reminded of Barney Stinson’s (pervy) exclamation of how he couldn’t go eight months without seeing girls in sundresses. So as a precaution against any pervs, I chose to throw on an over-sized denim top over it, which also serves to balance out the ‘girliness’ of the dress.
