When it comes to spending time the sun, we’re all guilty of not taking care of ourselves properly, under preparing and ultimately becoming a hot mess. We’re making this a thing of the past with our guide on how to stay chic in the heat. Soaring temperatures shouldn’t have to mean sweat patches and really short shorts. Read on for all things, fabrics, fashion, cooling and soothing.
First things first, it’s vital that you’re in the know when it comes to materials. Choose cotton, linen, viscose and seersucker for the most breathable fabrics. No matter whether you’re an occasional deodorant spritzer or carry your roll on with you at all times, take the time to consider the fabrics you’re buying to avoid over heating when temperatures soar.
Choose looser fitting clothes where appropriate, and try to avoid wearing dark colours as these tend to absorb more heat – leaving you rather sticky.
Ditch the suit jacket – you’ll only end up carrying it around with you all day let’s be honest. If a jacket is a must try to stay clear of any lined tailoring.
Opt for more casual button up shirts like a Cuban collar or a V neckline shirt like this linen Orlebar Brown Waffle shirt which was inspired by Mediterranean fishermen.
