I think I huge hindrance to my being able to dress appropriately in the summer is the fact that culturally, I need to remain somewhat conservative- ie. I'm not allowed to show my legs. So I turn to really breathable but high quality tights that also (conveniently) serve as shapewear for when I'm wearing body-hugging looks. Tights also serve as a great alternative to avoid dreaded summer chaffing (haha). Tights I typically wear are by the brand Sculptz,which manufacture ladies shapewear and control top tights which I personally buy at The Bay.
I hope your summer is treating you better than mine is treating me -______-
