What to wear to stay cool in summer heat
It’s hard to get dressed up and achieve the elegant look especially in summer. But with a little planning, you can wear something comfortable and beautiful.
Here is what you should wear to feel comfortable in summer heat:
Dresses and skirts are cooler than pants, since they allow air to circulate to your skin and heat to waft away.
Choose clothing in light colors, which reflects sunlight.
Wear natural, breathable cotton, which wicks sweat away from the body. Avoid synthetic fabrics, which often constrict airflow and hold heat close to the skin.
Skip hosiery if you can. Though they may not be possible in a corporate setting, but at business casual or more creative offices, bare legs should be acceptable in the summer.
If you worry about wet marks on your clothes, wear patterns rather than solids.
Wear strappy or open-toe sandals that allow your feet to breathe.
