Whether you're one of the lucky ones headed to the beach during the long break or one of those who prefer to stay in the city, we've got the essentials you need to survive the heat in style.

1. Camisole

In this humid weather, you will need an easy breezy top that you can wear both for work (underneath a blazer, of course!) and play.

2. Off-the-shoulder top

We thought this style was just a trend, but it looks like it is here to stay. A shoulder-baring top looks just as awesome when worn at the beach as much as when it's worn in the city.
