Here's Your Official Summer Guide To The Perfect Tops For Every Temperature

The tricky thing about summer is that the temperature goes from nice to unbearable overnight. One day we’re working with comfortable 75 and the next it’s hot as hell 90. How’s a girl supposed to plan her outfits around such drastic weather? With our handy little guide, of course.

Because we’re also tired of wondering if 75 is really warm enough for a tank top, we devised this clever chart to help decide what tops to wear depending on the temperature. Here’s what you need to know:

75: Now’s the time to get your last wears out of your chambray shirt. This is the perfect temp to wear them comfortably without a jacket on top.

Editor’s Pick: MiH Jeans Safari chambray shirt ($220)

80: It’s starting to heat up, so keep cool in a lightweight short sleeve top. Because your arm isn’t completely exposed, you’ll fair fine in AC.

Editor’s Pick: Equipment Riley washed-silk T-shirt ($178)

Summer Rain: Two reasons a sheer shirt is your best bet when it’s raining. (1) Your arms are technically covered should it be a little chilly and, (2) sheer materials dry super fast should they get wet in a summer shower.

Editor’s Pick: Matthew Williamson sheer silk shirt ($593.53)

85: Oh yeah, it’s hot now. Keep cool in a tank top and opt for flowy styles that allow air to pass through.

Editor’s Pick: Silk cami by Boutique ($84)

Too Hot to Handle: Anything above 85 is just sweltering, which means it’s time to bust out the crop tops and bralettes. Hope you’ve been doing your crunches!

Editor’s Pick: Contrast Floral Button Bralet ($56)
