Summer: 5 Fashion Tips for Hot Climates

Summer is the perfect season for lounging next to the pool, adventuring in nature, or just going to the beach (if you are not a fan of nature when it does not involve cool water lapping at your heels).

Summer 5 Fashion Tips for Hot Climates

Summer can, however, be a difficult season to dress for – particularly if you live in a place with sweltering heat and unbearable humidity. When temperatures rise to unprecedented highs, you may find yourself drenched in sweat and not know how to dress for the soaring mercury levels on your thermometer.

Below are five helpful fashion tips for keeping cool this season:

1. Fabric Choices

Summer fashion is not a time for polyester – or anything synthetic for that matter.

Look for lightweight, breathable fabric choices such as cotton and linen. While synthetic fabrics tend to trap heat, cotton, and linen clothing items help to keep the summer breeze flowing. Beyond just opting for cotton and linen, incorporating bamboo fabric into your summer wardrobe can also be a wise choice. Bamboo is not only sustainable but its fibers create an incredibly soft fabric that is both breathable and has moisture-wicking properties. This means it can help pull sweat away from your skin, allowing it to evaporate more quickly and keep you cooler. So, when shopping for summer essentials, consider adding bamboo-made clothing items to your list for an eco-friendly and comfortable option.

2. Breezy Silhouettes

Embracing breezy silhouettes also means exploring options like off-the-shoulder tops or dresses, which add a touch of elegance while keeping you cool. Additionally, wrap dresses and skirts offer a customizable fit that can easily adjust to your body shape, ensuring comfort without sacrificing style. These pieces not only allow for air circulation but also blend seamlessly into both casual and formal settings, making them versatile additions to your summer wardrobe.

Look for flowing maxis and anything tiered or A-line, they will be where you want to be in a hot place.

3. Sleeveless Tops

Quite possibly the best fashion invention of a lifetime, sleeveless tops are what memorable summers are made of.

Keep things casual by pairing one with some wide-leg linen pants or a cute pair of shorts. When wearing a bra with a sleeveless top, choose a bra type that matches its neckline. That will keep you from having to adjust your bra during the day or, worse yet, a fallen strap.

As much as it might not be the end of the world, not having your straps showing is just a classier move.

4. Anti-Chafe Shorts

If you do not have a thigh gap (and sometimes even when you do), chafing can be a nightmare in the summer months. Anti-chafe shorts are essential for wearing under your dresses and skirts this summer.

If the temperatures are too high and the thought of adding another layer of fabric fills you with dread, an anti-friction stick is a game-changer, and you can get one for around ten bucks! Winner. For those particularly sweltering days, consider lightweight and breathable anti-chafe shorts made from performance fabrics that further prevent moisture buildup. Some brands offer options with cooling technology, which can actively help reduce your body temperature during wear. This makes them an indispensable item for long days out or when engaging in summer sports and activities. Moreover, they come in various lengths and sizes, ensuring that everyone can find their perfect pair for summer dresses or skirts.

5. Sandals

Sandals are an absolute must-have for exploring countries with insanely hot climates. African, Indian, and Australian summers are all about practical footwear.

That does not mean that you cannot wear sneakers or heels, it just means that you will feel the heat more in those than you will in summer sandals.

If you are not comfortable exposing your feet, choose a pair of mules. Mules are perfect for covering your feet but leaving your ankle and heel exposed and cool. Always choose a shoe that allows air to circulate inside your feet.

In summary, dressing for the summer heat doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style or comfort. By carefully selecting your fabrics, embracing breezy designs, and choosing the right footwear and undergarments, you can navigate the hot climate with ease. Always remember to accessorize with sunglasses, and a broad-brimmed hat, and to apply sunscreen generously for protection against the sun’s rays, ensuring a safe and stylish summer season.
