Holly’s July Hot List

Less is always more this time of year, thanks to the scorching hot temps outside. That’s why I like to spend July’s long, hot days in breezy one-piece ensembles, paired with some colorful accessories. Check out the summery styles I’ll be rocking all month long.


These easy pieces are as effortless as a summer sundress, but with a playful flair. I already know this flirty cold shoulder romper from American Eagle Outfitters is going to be on repeat in my summer rotation thanks to its lightweight fabric and feminine eyelet detailing. Another solid staple is this linen-blend safari romper from Ann Taylor. It’s sophisticated enough for casual Fridays and after-work cocktails. If patterns are your passion, consider this striking floral print romper from Express, which features a flattering v-neck and peekaboo cutout detail. If you’re searching for the perfect summer festival look, this short knotted jumpsuit from Zara rocks a fresh pattern and a sexy halter neckline to keep you looking cool.


Beach Bags
Need I explain the necessity of a roomy carryall bag for your trip to the hotel pool or a sandy white beach? I’m obsessing over this tropical Cowrie tote from Tommy Bahama, as well as this more laid-back striped tote that you can throw into your carry-on without it losing its shape. For a more classic option, check out the canvas weekender bag from J.Crew. This preppy pouch is made from durable canvas, and you can monogram it for a personal touch. If you’re looking for something with a little more edge, BCBGeneration offers this perforated tote bag in basic black for a sophisticated seaside accessory.


When it comes to summer sneaks, I’m currently loving anything white, low-profile and easy to put on. These super-hip Vans Asher slip-ons from Macy’s fit the bill perfectly. Visit Zara to find these braided sole sneakers, which encapsulate two trends — white sneakers and jute rope — in a fresh, unexpected way. If it’s breathability you’re looking for, don’t sweat. These mesh Keds sneakers from Belk have got you covered. Finally, those looking for the perfect casual shoe to go with any outfit should snag these low-key canvas sneakers from H&M.

TieDye (3)

I’m having a blast with this throwback trend right now. For the perfect summer beach piece, pick up this Kendall & Kylie tie-dye tank from PacSun that you can pair with matching shorts or your favorite denim cutoffs. When it’s time to take a dip, this Fireworks keyhole bikini from Nordstrom should be your go-to for an ultra-groovy vacation look. This boho tie-dye dress from Zara is another great summer festival option. If you’re looking for a more sophisticated twist on tie-dye, check out Free People’s floaty Sebastian tank from Nordstrom, which can be dressed up or down for date night or a backyard barbecue.

No matter how hot it may get in Dallas this month, remember that these cool summer trends (and air conditioning!) are waiting for you at Galleria Dallas.
