11 Celebrity Outfits That Prove You Can Look Chic in the Heat



When it gets hot outside (we’re talking “sweating the minute you step outside” level), it’s difficult to feel inspired when you get dressed in the morning. You kind of just want to toss on shorts, a tee, sandals and very little else. Sound about right? However, we’re of the opinion that it’s actually quite simple to put together a well-styled albeit warm-weather appropriate ensemble—if you take the right cues from some of our favourite celebrities.

From our age-old style crushes Alexa Chung and Sarah Jessica Parker to some of the sartorially blessed stars we’ve recently fallen for (here’s looking at you, Yara Shahidi), keep scrolling to see the best celebrity summer outfits and shop the key pieces you need to re-create them.

Be it on the beach or in the city, Margot knows that the easiest summer throw-on look consists of a minidress, flip-flops and a straw boater. 

Because we live in Blighty, you should always have a pair of jeans to hand for when the weather inevitably changes. Make like Alexa and keep your look classic with a plain white tee, ballet pumps and a silk headscarf.

Take style cues from Busy Philipps and toughen up a pretty floral midi dress with a leather biker jacket for cooler summer evenings.

There’s no denying that Holly has a penchant for miniskirts and fitted tops, but it’s her “white denim cutoffs and printed white tee” look that we plan on re-creating. 

Rosie proves that suiting can work in summer, too, as long as you opt for slouchy, breathable silhouettes. It’ll also make for a cool alternative to a dress for wedding season. 

If anyone knows city style, it’s Sarah Jessica Parker. Her cream pleated skirt, blue linen shirt and tan heeled sandals are as chic as they come. 

Tie-front tops are all the rage this summer. Wear yours with gold layered necklaces and high-waisted white jeans like Emily for a classy take on the beach trend. 

Beyoncé is the queen of high-low dressing. Case in point? Her split skirt and band tee. Stick to a similar colour palette to give the look a polished feel. 

Nothing says summer quite like a white cotton dress, particularly when it’s been intricately embroidered with pretty flowers. We love how Fearne has given her Cath Kidston midi some edge with the addition of Converse high-tops. 

Yara clearly saw our article on milkmaid, puff-sleeved tops a few months back, as she’s worn them consistently since. Offset yours with a pair of ripped jeans and metallic mules.

Even celebrities can’t resist the allure of a jumpsuit. Essentially a ready-made outfit, be sure to inject some of your personality into it with a bold sandal.
