This post is brought in partnership with Dockers® and ShopStyle Collective

This year I feel like the crazy heat and humidity has started earlier than ever! I like to dress with comfort in mind year-round but especially so in the summer. I don’t know about you but in the summer, I just want to feel as cool and comfortable as I can. Comfort is key! That’s why I’m thrilled to share this summer outfit I styled in partnership with Dockers® wearing their new Smart 360 Knit™ Comfort Knit™ Jean Cut pants. It’s the perfect outfit for that effortlessly stylish look that also feels great to wear. These are exclusive to Kohl’s, which made it so easy to shop right off  

1.     Embrace slip on knit shoes

It’s easy to overlook how important what you put on your feet is in making you feel hot or cooler on hot summer days. For this outfit, I choose a pair of slip-on shoes that have a weave knit, this makes the outfit feel smarter but also allows the air in and keeps me feeling cooler.

2.     Choose the right pant

I often want to wear pants in the summer, but I end up not choosing them because they can be too restrictive and it’s just not comfortable in the heat and humidity. Just the thought of wearing those kind of pants makes me sweat! Dockers® new Comfort Knit Jean Cut pants are perfect for this summer outfit because they are so breathable and flexible, I got mine from Kohls. The pants can be styled up for smart events or styled down for more casual summer engagements. It’s great that the pants have performance-level stretch but also look stylish. Plus,Dockers® long-term partnership with Waves for Water helps give communities in need access to clean water.

3.     Loose linen for the win

I paired the pants with a light and natural loose linen popover. I live in shirts like this all summer long because, just like the Dockers® pants they are so breathable and comfortable to wear. I like being able to feel any breeze on my skin during hot and sticky summer days, and a loose linen popover like this allows for just that. Plus, it has a European vibe about it that I love!
