While the rising temps make it tempting to just toss on a tank top and go, we're vowing to beat the heat in style and make this our chicest season yet, even if it is already August. But if this street-styled set can do it, so can we, right? Armed with denim dresses, crop tops, and cool-girl shades, this crew could safely inspire us even on the stickiest of Summer days. It's a lesson in cool-girl styling, finding footwear that's as functional as it is fashionable, and remembering the power of great accessories. Just consider this the inspiration to live out the rest of your Summer days in style — and start clicking through now.
The moment we saw the bathing suit Stacy Keibler wore while vacationing in Ibiza (on a yacht with her friend, Naomi Campbell, no less), we did a double take. We like to think of it as the intersection of a one-piece, a monokini, and a bikini, with its top and bottom barely tied together. It didn't hurt that this new breed of swimwear happened to perfectly show off her toned physique. She then opted for a pair of cutoff jean shorts as a casual cover-up. But what do you think of her choice of swimwear — would you wear a style like Stacy's? Or do you think it should be left on the yacht in Ibiza?
Eliminate stress over packing for a Summer trip — what you wear in a new locale can be half the fun! We dialed into the spirit of some of our favorite spots to help identify what belongs in your suitcase for both day and night (think Miami, Las Vegas, Nantucket, and more). And because you can't spend your entire time away deciding what to wear, we called out the spots you've got to see and shop. Send us a post card, will you?
Now that your casual Summer style is in check, it's time to dress things up — all with the help of our favorite best-dressed celebrities.

Like the many other fans of hot outdoor Summer music festivals, Lollapalooza attendees were no exception to the less-is-more approach to dressing. But despite the weekend's minimalistic style (see our complete roundup of favorite festival style moments), there was no shortage of fashionable add-ons to grab our attention. Checking out everything from great crossbody bags and backpacks to studs on boots and bracelets . . . and, well, studs on just about everything, we've rounded up our favorite must-have pieces from the festival.
Lollapalooza has come to a close, and like the music festivals that have come before it (Coachella, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury . . . you get the drill), Chicago's band-standing weekend was a prime time for music fans to break out their crop tops and cutoffs. We scoured Grant Park in search of that quintessential festivalgoer uniform — along with other Summer fashion inspiration. From vintage Levi's to statement-making sunglasses and from washed denim vests to party-ready jumpsuits, we've found some serious street-style contenders.
Could this have been the Coachella of the Midwest? Only one way to find out. See the best looks from the entire Lollapalooza weekend, here in the gallery. And then be sure to check out our roundup of the weekend's hottest accessories.

Not exactly — we've curated the best finds in our 50 under $50 guides and narrowed it down to the cream of the crop.
