6 Outfit Ideas for Beating the Heat

Without sacrificing style cred.

What with Friday now here, we are all set for the weekend and days spent lounging poolside, laughing with friends, shopping, eating, and creating.  However, in addition to being our favourite time of the week, Saturday and Sunday are looking mighty hot here in the Western hemisphere, with temperatures predicted to reach higher than 30OC in our HQ of Toronto.  But we're not keen to let the sweat-demons get in the way of our plans, so we've scoured our favourite Instagram feeds for a menu of styling ideas that will keep you feeling ultra chill this weekend, as well as throughout the summer.  Whether it's the classic all-white strategy, or a floaty peasant dress (Tia's personal fave), you've got options to get you through the scorcher.

When In Doubt, Jumpsuit it Out
Fact: one-pieces are 100% more chill, especially ones with a slouchy, relaxed fit.

Overall, This Is a Good Idea
If you <3 dungarees and overalls, make it the main feature of your look and optimize breeziness, plus get a healthy dose of sensual French girl vibes.

Pretty Please
Look your most elegant in a peasant dress - they're loose and light, but interesting textures and patterns keep things aesthetically dyanmic.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
