From breezy fabrics to shielding accessories
When it comes to beating the summer heat, we have a few tricks up our sleeves for looking and staying cool when the temperature skyrockets. Don’t let hot weather keep you from showcasing your best style. Stay fabulously chic while feeling cool with these tips.
Choose lighter shades
We all know black is a go-to color in the fashion world, but in summer, opt for lighter colors. When wearing dark colors, the sun is drawn to you and the heat is absorbed into your clothes. Lighter hues will keep you cooler.
Wear lightweight fabrics
Cotton, natural fibers, mesh and other cutout fabrics will allow your skin to breathe. Light weight garments create a more comfortable and airy feeling on the body.
Select relax-fit denim
Don’t worry jean lovers, denim is a year-round staple and the hot weather is not going to stop us. Instead of going for a tight skinny jean, try boyfriend or flared silhouettes–denim shorts are a great option too. These looks will be more relaxed when you’re having fun in the sun.
Sport an oversized hat
The right headgear can truly make or break an outfit, and when the summer sun is bearing down on us, they, it can also be a great way to shield your face. Sport a sunhat or other oversized hat to complete your look.
Don a pair of shades
