How to dress when it's hot?

There are a few basic principles that you absolutely need to know so as not to make any mistakes in order to dress well in summer when you are a woman. The high temperatures promote perspiration and certain clothes, certain materials are not at all suitable and do not allow the skin to breathe. Black is also to be avoided, it absorbs the heat of the sun, whereas light colors tend to reflect.

The basic golden rules for dressing for the weather:

  • wear light colors;
  • cover sensitive parts;
  • wear loose clothing;
  • choose the right material;
  • change clothes regularly.

What materials to wear in summer?

This is a question we are asked very often in stores! Indeed, some materials can literally give you a nightmare in the middle of summer. Excessive sweating, your skin stops breathing, your clothes stick to you and let's not talk about the "clamp" effect and heavy legs. 💦

You must therefore absolutely favor light fabrics and natural materials:

  1. bamboo fiber;
  2. cotton;
  3. flax;
  4. silk.

For example, linen and cotton allow the skin to perspire (without leaving excessive marks on clothing) and dry quickly.

The best formula is a blend of cotton and linen: less rough, creases less easily than linen alone and very pleasant to wear (fluidity, lightness).

Avoid at all costs: synthetic fibers such as polyester or polyamide. They don't absorb moisture as much as cotton and retain odors!

Last tip, pay attention to the weave! Choose it light and loose. The material should not give you the impression of being dense and compact. No chance of you staying cool with thick, non-breathable material. On the other hand, a light and thin fabric, with a loose weave, will offer you completely different comfort.

How to dress in summer at work?

Do you work in an office without air conditioning? Worse, do you often have to go outside? To take the car ? Summer can quickly become a nightmare for people who don't have the chance to work all day in an air-conditioned space.

So it's not easy to know how to dress in summer at work! Being comfortable, without giving the impression of being at the beach, a real headache! 🤯

First, make sure you respect the regulations that your workplace imposes on clothing For women, it's still a chance, because it is much easier to wear a dress or a skirt than to wear shorts when you are a man. So ladies, rejoice, you have plenty of opportunities ahead of you!

Avoid tight clothing at all costs. Leave your favorite slim in the closet! Not only does it keep you warm, but it prevents your skin from breathing and cuts off your circulation. Your legs take quite a beating as it is, don't you think? If you absolutely want to wear pants, then opt for loose and flowing pants in light materials (and keep the class at the same time).

Shoe advice: your feet swell in the heat, so pamper them and opt for a very comfortable pair of flat sandals! ☑️
