Keep it light in this cotton wrap dress in a denim-hued print by Laguna Beach-based designer Kerry Cassill ($150). Pair it with staples like a straw hat and bag to complete the look.
When temps soar, skip the artificial fibers and tight fits. Instead, opt for a tunic in pale linen ($285) along with a lightweight cotton scarf ($98) made by Eka, a small company based near New Delhi.
A rule of thumb: The hotter it is, the simpler your outfit should be--including jewelry. Pare down your look to one statement piece. Shop owner Lauri Carleton, a former Kenneth Cole executive, sources a selection of tortoiseshell necklaces (from $150) and wide cuffs (from $75).
Magpi specializes in a neutral sartorial palette. Here, a cool cotton dress ($100) with a pintucked bodice and a swingy shape is perfect for strolling the beach to catch an ocean breeze.
A Kerry Cassill top ($145) fronts a whole rack of white and earth-toned separates by Black Crane, Pip-Squeak Chapeau, Layla and Utility Canvas. They all go together, so it’s a no-brainer to just reach into your closet, mix and match and feel très cool.
Huaraches ($80) are soft and easy on the feet. Each pair is handmade in northern Mexico from a single piece of leather. They come in a rainbow of colors, including metallic silver.
No matter how hot it gets, there will be schlepping. Do so in style with a burlap bag ($68) that Magpi designed in collaboration with DTLA brand Apolis. Not only do these totes coolify the San Fernando Valley; their production keeps 494 Bangladeshis employed.

We found our answer in Magpi, a new lifestyle shop in Studio City that stocks the sort of breezy cotton and linen separates and airy sandals that’ll keep us comfy when temps climb into the triple digits. Here, a short list of what to wear to beat the heat.
