It’s Summer again! Out the bikinis, hats, shorts, and thin tops. It’s the sweatiest weather of the year so keep your coats. For a breezy summer, blend in with the season, but don’t be a sweaty disaster. Here are some summer fashion tricks you can try:
1. The looser the better
The less fabric that touches your skin, the more comfortable it will feel. There is a better flow of air through your outfit the better comfort you will feel. A flowy maxi dress will keep you cooler than a skintight tank.
2. Avoid the padded bras
Inches of foam padding on a hot summer day is equivalent to a major sweat disaster. A comfortable brallete is the best choice for a hot summer undies.
3. Avoid Heavy Fabrics
Lightweight materials are great for warm weather and they don’t cling to you when you can’t avoid sweating. When fabric does not cling to your skin, it is easier for sweat to evaporate.
4. Wear Open Weave-knits
With a thin under-shirt or sleeveless shirt, you can wear an open weave-knits top for a more cooling breezy outfit
5. Avoid Synthetic Fabrics
Natural fabrics are more breathable than synthetic fabrics like polyester or rayon. Cotton for example absorbs sweat better and dries faster than synthetic fabrics. You won’t feel sweaty with natural fabrics compared with synthetic fabrics
6. Avoid Heavy Ornaments
Heavy metals or beads tend to weight down your clothes closer to your skin, trapping body heat. Try wearing a patterned garment, which will add the same kind of interest to your outfit.
7. Wear a wide-brimmed hat / woven scarf
Drape the scarf over your shoulders or head whenever you feel like you're getting too much sun. It's so lightweight that you'll barely feel it.
8. Leave your backpack
The last thing you want on a hot day is a heavy baggage that is stuck at your back. The less stuff you carry around, the less you will exert yourself, and the less sweaty you will feel as a result.
9. Keep your Hair off your neck
A small cotton scarf is great for absorbing sweat, whether you use it to tie up your hair or wear it around your neck with your hair down. Soak it in cold water before you put it on for an extra-cooling kick.
10. Cover up from the Sun
Direct sunlight not only makes your body hot but it also damages your skin. Sun burn can be so itchy and hot feeling, so make sure to cover up with sleeves.
11. Stick to light colors
Dark colors absorb light and can make you feel hot, while light colors reflect light and will keep you cool.
12. Minimize your Jewelry
Earrings are fine because they don't really touch much of your skin, but necklaces, bracelets, and rings are often more trouble than they're worth once the temperature rises.
