Dressing for the Dog Days

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times: summertime in Texas. The season is notorious for high humidity and higher temperatures, ideal for a day on Lady Bird Lake or a nearby patio but not so much for a dressy affair. It’s tricky to be clean-cut when you’re dripping in sweat, but boutique owner Stephanie Coultress O’Neill has some ideas. Estilo, which she founded in 2005, is a women’s clothing store located in Tarrytown’s Casis Village. With over a decade of boutique curation, Coultress O’Neill knows comfort is a crucial component of Austin style, especially when it comes to those middle months. Here, she has styled three looks from Estilo to help you look cool even when it’s hot.
