Summer is definitely one of my favorite seasons because of the warm weather and endless fun that comes with it. But, as we all know, summer heat can be overwhelming, and if you don’t dress appropriately, you’re likely to end up all sweaty and probably sun burnt. These fashion tips can help you stay cool, comfortable and stylish throughout summer:
Choose Light Colors Over Dark Ones
Dark-colored clothes absorb more heat and light making you feel hotter and sweatier than light-colored ones. For this reason, you’re better off wearing light-colored clothes during summer because they reflect light and keep you airy and cool.
Go With Natural Makeup
Wearing heavy makeup on a hot summer day is not advisable. It will certainly melt because of the excess heat, leaving you looking scary. So, put away your heavy foundation, heavy black eyeliner, dark lipstick and dark eyeshadows.
Instead, use tinted moisturizers and lip balms, liquid highlighters and neutral eyeshadows to give you that nice summer glow that will make you stand out among your friends. Here is a tutorial on putting on summer make up.
Wear a Wide-Brimmed Hat To Protect Yourself From The Damaging Sun
Be sure to protect yourself from the harsh and harmful sun rays as you enjoy the summer season. You can do so by wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat, as well as long-sleeved shirts and pants (they have to be light and loose of course). If you don’t have a hat, carry a lightweight, woven scarf with you if possible. You can use it to cover your head and shoulders when the weather is too hot.
Wear Loose Clothes Made Of Natural Fabrics
The looser your clothes are, the cooler and more comfortable you’ll feel during summer. So, opt for loose and flowing clothing as opposed to form-fitting ones. This applies to dresses, tops, shorts, skirts and every other thing you plan to wear during this period. On the same note, you should choose clothes made from natural fabrics such as cotton because they are more breathable and absorb sweat better and dries faster.
Choose a Small Handbag Over A Larger One
The lesser stuff you carry around during summer, the better. That’s because you’ll exert yourself less and sweat less. So, leave your gigantic handbag at home and opt for a smaller one instead. Be sure that whatever you choose can carry all your basics comfortably.
If you can buy several summer bags to match with your different outfits, that’s great. But, if you can’t, invest in a bag with a neutral brown tone as it matches with almost every summer outfit.
Hopefully, these simple fashion tips can help you stay stylish and comfortable so you can enjoy the summer season much better.
