Hot Pants

What to wear during Arizona’s torturous summers always proves difficult. It’s safe to rule out Uggs in any form (unless you’re actually on an Australian beach), especially when paired with Soffe shorts and a tank top that came courtesy of pledge week. Like, gag us.

Obviously that leaves racks upon hangers and drawers of clothes from which to choose, but should you require a bit more guidance the Spring/Summer Fashion Show on Thursday, May 3, will lead the way with season-appropriate examples from local designers and boutiques.
