The Lily Aldridge Way To Beat Summer Heat (Sans Short-Shorts)

It’s hot out there, and getting increasingly more difficult to come up with outfit combos that don’t involve denim cutoffs (a mainstay we’ll be forever loyal to, but can still become tired of). Serving up a timely dose of inspiration is model and street-style muse Lily Aldridge, who sported a breezy, two-piece ensemble that feels undeniably fresh and weather-appropriate for late summer. She paired a flouncy crop top with a matching high-waisted maxi skirt—these proportions are a welcome shake-up from all manner of the tank-and-short-shorts combos we’re prone to wearing in the stifling heat. Lily’s alternative still promises to keep things cool, and she made it all the more melt-proof with the addition of a low bun (hair off the neck equals significantly less sweat). Finished with round sunnies and flat sandals, the effect is effortless and totally doable for your next outing. Shop her look below.
