What Not to Wear in Summer: Fits to Stay Cool and Fresh

What Not to Wear in Summer: Fits to Stay Cool and Fresh

Now, let's chat about what to skip when the temperature climbs, because nobody wants to feel like they're melting in the summer heat.

Here's a gentle reminder of what to avoid:

Heavy fabrics: lighten up, literally

Let's leave the heavy hitters like wool, polyester and velvet in the closet for now. Trust us; your skin will thank you for the breathable upgrade.

Dark colours: brighten up your wardrobe

Dark colours might be chic, but they tend to soak up the sun like a sponge.

Instead, embrace lighter hues like white, pastels or soft neutrals.

Not only do they reflect sunlight, but they also give off those carefree summer vibes we all love.

Tight-fitting clothes: give yourself some breathing room

Tight-fitting clothes: give yourself some breathing room

Summer is all about embracing the freedom of flowy silhouettes and relaxed fits. So say goodbye to anything that feels like it's hugging you a little too tightly. Let your skin breathe; you'll feel as light as a summer breeze.

Synthetic fabrics: keep it natural

Polyester, nylon and acrylic might be convenient, but they're not the best choice for hot weather. Opt for natural fibres like cotton, linen or bamboo to keep sweat at bay. Plus, they're eco-friendly – double win!

Excessive layers: less is more

While layering is a fun fashion trend, it's not ideal for summer heatwaves. Keep it simple with minimal layers to avoid feeling like you're wearing a sauna. A light cardigan or a sheer kimono can add flair without weighing you down.
