Beat the summer heat: cool looks for warm days.

Whether you're hanging around the dressing room or preparing for class, keeping muscles warm is a year-round must. But you don't want to melt in the hot weather. Lightweight legwarmers, shrugs, and skirts keep you covered but don't make you overheat. Jumpers keep your core warm and your limbs cool. It may be hot outside, but a drafty studio or air-conditioned theater can give you a chill. Plan ahead. If you're attending a summer program in an unfamiliar town, keep warmers handy so unexpected weather won't catch you off-guard. Here are our favorite warm weather cover ups (with their suggested retail prices). We can't think of a prettier way to spend a summer day!
