Something simple, yet classy and can still stand up against NYC heat since the reading is at 3 in the afternoon. I do love your style inspiration posts and I know you guys will lead me in the right direction to impress the attending directors and producers so that I can have my play fully produced!”
Hey, Marika! The key to keeping cool during scorching temperatures is to wear breathable fabrics, and nothing overly confining. Nevertheless, heat or no heat, you have some folks to impress!
I kept it super simple with this first look. A white peplum dress is effortlessly classy.
The open-toe Steve Madden pumps give the look a splash of color without being too loud. The two-tone leather purse keeps the look chic and sleek when paired with these Tory Burch earrings. Protect your eyes from the sun’s glare with oversized sunglasses. Don’t forget a coral mani!
Next, I went for jolts of color. This Vanessa Bruno tank dress is not only great to look at, it allows your legs to catch the breeze.
Get your colorblock on with a pair of orange pumps. You can bring some spice to your ears with turquoise earrings. Complete the look with some cat-eye shades, white clutch, and a subtle gold eyeshadow.
For look 3, if you’re looking to try a print, this maxi will be great for you. It’s easy to slip on and is effortlessly chic!
Keep the rest of the look relatively subdued with simple studs, and a white clutch. The purple Dolce Vita T-Strap sandals work well with the print of the dress. Keep your lips a soft color, and wear a pair of round frame sunglasses, and you’re set!
Good luck on Sunday, Marika! I hope this helped!
