The stifling heat in Knoxville has made it difficult to keep cool while still looking fashionable, but this fashionista, Angie, proves it can be done. Because it’s not practical for most women to wear short-shorts and tank tops every day, take a cue from Angie, who was spotted running errands in downtown Knoxville. Her gray top and white pants are a more stylish alternative to jeans and a T-shirt, and their relaxed fit will also keep you cool. The prevailing idea is that to be cool, you have to wear as little clothes as possible, but actually, loose fitting clothes will keep you cooler than tight shorts and tops. The extra clothes will also give added protection from harmful UV rays. Anchoring an outfit with stylish neutrals like white and gray allows many options for accessories. Angie chose to add some sparkle to her look with a silver statement necklace, silver earrings and a silver watch. To bring some color into her otherwise neutral ensemble, she added a pair of coral sandals, a hot trend for summer. To get this look, try a pair of casual white pants (Ann Taylor Loft has a great selection). Add a loose-fitting top (Express has a great gray option), and top the look off with some colorful accessories.
