Dressing for the summer with Acne F/W 2011

If you live in the DC area, you know how *lovely* our weather has been lately. It's so nice to step outside and instantly be drenched with sweat, no?

I know I'm not the only one who has trouble dressing for warm weather (but honestly, I'm probably an extreme case, since I didn't even own a proper pair of shorts till this spring... *sigh*), but let's look to the runway for a little inspiration...

Unless I'm mistaken, this is Acne's fall collection, but portions of the looks shown above can be adapted for the hot weather.

1. Wear a skirt/shorts/skort. Seriously. It's such a good idea. In my experience, there is nothing worse than wearing skintight jeans in humid, 90 degree weather. Sometimes you just gotta be free, know what I mean? My favorite out of the options I just mentioned is a pair of shorts, as long as they're kinda loose.

2. Skip the layers, unless you live in a place where it gets very cold toward the end of the night. If so, just carry around a light cardigan or something.

3. Wear loose pants! Those peach colored pants in the third outfit look super comfy, and would probably great to wear in the city heat.

Side note: I really like the tulle pants at far right, and would totally recommend this look, but I figure you'd have to get them from Acne, which is likely costly (or you'd have to make them yourself).
