We know, we know: You're probably not thinking about what you're going to wear the rest of the month right this minute, because odds are you'll be in a bathing suit all weekend long. But, once post-July 4th weekend hits, you will have to get fully-dressed — and in 80 to 90 degree heat, no less. The funny part about needing to figure out said outfits in said weather, though, beyond the fact that it's hot and sticky and really, really humid, is that most warm-weather clothing items are actually quite divisive. Capris, shorts, wearing a bathing suit as a top. It takes a fashion risk-taker to really go all-in.
If you don't feel like you've hit your peak summer style potential just yet, allow the 31 outfits ahead (one for each day of the month) to provide enough inspiration for all of July. There's daywear, evening wear, office-appropriate combinations, and pieces that are pretty much meant for partying. Time to get creative (and stay cool in the process).

Give us a slip dress on a 100 degree day, and we're good to go. (And if you're not into the whole underwear-as-outerwear feel, opt for a colorblocked or printed version).

Plain and simple: Polka dots are back! Go full-on with a spotted dress, or, try something more subtle, like a patterned top with a midi skirt.
