Keep Your Cool This Summer- 10 Fashions Tips for Warm Weather

The summer season is the perfect time for a wardrobe refresh! “Summertime and the livin’ is easy,” but with temperatures soaring, it’s hard to stay cool! Professionals always want to know how to look fresh at the office. Here are 10 hot fashion pieces to up-level your wardrobe but keep you cool all summer long.

  1. Stick with light-colored clothing. Swap the typical work wear darks like black and navy for light colors. Choose pastel colors, white dresses or a white linen blazer, and button-down tops. White will reflect the sun’s rays keeping you cooler.
  2. Wear sleeveless or loose sleeves. Create as much airflow as possible with sleeveless camis/shells, puff-sleeve blouses, or short-sleeve button-ups.
  3. Avoid tight clothing. Loose-fitting clothing is your best bet for staying cool in the summer. Wear cropped, wide-leg pants, loose shirts, oversize blouses, and dresses and skirts with room to breathe.
  4. Choose breathable fabrics. You’ll notice the difference between breathable fabrics and fabrics that trap moisture during the summer. Synthetics usually aren’t breathable, so check the labels to make sure your clothes are 100 percent linen, cotton, or silk.
  5. Ditch the jeans. Denim is one of the heaviest fabrics. Swap your stretch or skinny jeans for lightweight cotton or linen pants.  If you must wear denim, opt for wide-leg jeans, which still allow for some air circulation.
  6. Go for dresses. A comfy summer dress is an easy option in hot weather. Bring out your wrap dresses, maxis, tie front dresses, or long skirts for a little extra air circulation.
  7. Wear leather sandals. Strappy sandals or espadrilles let your toes breathe and provide a comfortable, stylish option.
  8. Minimize accessories. Layers of necklaces or bangles may stick to your skin in the heat. Choose one statement accessory, like hoop earrings.
  9. Love layers. Layering is a big part of your summer fashion vibe. A cotton cardigan is an excellent choice for those days when you need to go from hot to a cold office.
  10. One-piece garment.  Swap the separates, which can get very warm in the summer, for a work-appropriate one-piece, like a jumpsuit or wrap dress.
