HomeOutfits By TypeCasualBeat the Heat Wave with These Outfit Ideas Beat the heat wave with these casual outfit ideas and fashion tricks that will help in keeping you cool and stylish during the hottest days of the year. As the mercury rises, choosing the right outfit can get extremely challenging. We all love the usual crop top and while it may night be appropriate for an office outfit, neither is a blazer and pencil skirt combination. Some activities you can do beat the heat wave is by hitting the beach then stripping down to a bikini and also, the most important part – applying sun block to your entire face and body while sipping on an icy cold cocktail drink. When you want to stay cool, choose light fabrics like rayon, linen and cotton and nothing that’s synthetic like silk and wool. These fabrics trap heat against your body, preventing the warm air from flowing out. Christian Siriano once said that “If you have one fabulous, great dress, you won’t need any of those other layered items.” And we totally agree. It’s always nice to keep a nice lightweight dress inside your wardrobe, pretty handy for days like this. When the sun is out and at its highest, go for pale colors for your outfit since wearing dark hues can absorb more heat. While wearing as little as possible is definitely what we want, it doesn’t really mean that it will make you cooler. There are several benefits on covering up and that is by keeping your skin from the sun. A hat is always handy and will give you extra protection. One style statement hats is a panama – it’s made of something breathable. Too much arm candies on the hottest day of the year are definitely going to make you feel all hot and fussy. And you don’t want that. Accessorize with minimal but chic ones and nothing too delicate. Carrying a cooling spritz or a face mist is also a simple trick when it comes to cooling down your skin. Keep hydrated by drinking lots of water to maintain your body temperature. When it gets hot during the day, your body tends to lose moisture. Also, a travel fan is always helpful.
