Stay Cool & Look Chic in the Summer Heat

Stay stylish even in the hot summer sun with these tips.

  • Choose natural fibres that are breathable like cotton, bamboo, rayon and modal.
  • Wear a stylish pair of strappy sandals or peep toe shoes.
  • Pull long hair up into a stylish up-do.
  • If you need to wear a hat, look for one made of straw.
  • Long flowing and loose-fitting garments actually keep you cooler than shorts. Just look at the Saudis! With these types of garments, there is more air circulation than if the clothes are clinging to your body.
  • Wear light colours instead of dark colours; the exception is light blue since light blue shows more sweat than any other colour.
  • Avoid sugary drinks and caffeine as they dehydrate you.
  • If traveling, shopping or dining where there is air conditioning, be sure to bring a 3/4 sleeve cardigan with you.
  • Avoid tucking in your tops as it holds in the heat.
  • Don’t wear pantyhose unless your work demands it.
  • Maxi dresses are so comfortable this time of year. They are suitable for both casual or formal events and are so helpful to keep you cool. Let the men wear the pants!
