The summer season is here, and while all of us are busy updating our wardrobes, many are unsure of how to stack their wardrobes with clothes that are not only fashionable but also conducive to the weather.
In this article, we discuss both of these factors and try to resolve your dilemma by expanding upon the various materials that would make your skin smile while keeping alive your desire to stay current with the latest trends that are currently in vogue.
This one is a no-brainer; light colors are known to reflect heat while darker colors tend to absorb them. Therefore it makes the most sense to choose clothes which would reflect maximum light.
Avoid tight clothes as much as possible.
Another important thing to keep in mind while deciding on your wardrobe is to avoid clothes that hug the skin. It is very important to ensure that your clothes afford enough breathing space to your skin, as not doing so could lead to discomfort and even rashes.
Rashes occur as a consequence of sweat that forms on the surface of your skin. Without any gap between the cloth and the skin, it would be really difficult for the sweat to evaporate.
Choose cotton or linen.
The best material for summer clothing is either cotton or linen. Both are equally good as they have high water absorption capacity, ensuring that any amount of sweat secreted by your skin would immediately get absorbed by the cloth.
Given the high temperatures, neither cotton nor linen will hold the water content for long as the heat would facilitate a faster rate of evaporation, which would help you go about your day without worrying about any discomfort.
Avoid jeans as much as possible.
Denim being a thick material, is not ideal for the scorching summer season as it tends to suffocate the skin while preventing sweat from evaporating easily.
Therefore, it is advisable to replace it with looser fitting lowers that use lighter material so that your legs feel free and don’t tire too quickly.
Crew neck tops
Ideal for the summer months, a crew neck gives your neck more room to breathe, thereby reducing the probability of you sweating around the neck region.
You must have noticed how fidgety you get if your neck is sweaty or hot; interestingly enough, if our necks feel cool and comfortable, we find it easier to bear the heat.
Add a scarf to your wardrobe
Scarfs are known to be beneficial against the scorching heat of the summertime at noon.
They aren’t just good for protecting you against the heat but also are a nifty piece of accessory which can be treated as another form of headgear or be used to simply cover your neck.
In other instances, people have also wrapped their scarfs on their wrists and strangely enough that style has never gone out of vogue and appears neat, every time someone pulls it off.
But if you want your clothes to stand not just for you but also become a statement narrating your outlook on life, then you can pick up something from a womens clothing store that curates items which narrate a theme or are a reminder of our history or contribute to some social cause.
Depending on what you want your statement to be, you’re bound to find something.
Floral patterns are the new trendsetters.
In summers, we like to wear light things, drink things that are cool and set our eyes on things that remind us of springtime or nature.
Floral patterns don’t just look beautiful, they also add a certain flair to an otherwise non-unique clothing item. Using the techniques of contrasting light florals against a dark backdrop, you might get a design that’s bound to turn heads every time you step into that cafe or bookstore.
As far as making a fashion statement goes, floral pattern tops go really well with sneakers and the combination is not highly comfortable but also one which makes your inner fashion critique leap with joy.
After having understood the various materials that are suitable for this weather, you’ll be able to narrow down your options quite drastically. But that’s not it. You also know where to begin your fashion journey, and that shall no doubt open the door to more discoveries. So don’t wait any longer; go out there and conquer the world with your newfound knowledge.
