How to Dress Fresh & Cool During The Heat
How to Dress and Stay Cool in Warm Weather
The heat is on and so is our sweat.
Though sweating is a good thing, there are definitely some tricks you can incorporate to keep cool during those 90 degree and up days. In this article we’ll have a look at some of our favorite tips on how we try to stay light and dry during those summer months.
Lucky for all of us, dri-fit clothing is totally in style. It’s one sure way to stay dry and comfortable while we’re active and outdoors. Dri-Fit materials quickly absorb the sweat released from your body, which will then easily evaporate from the fabric. Its polyester and advanced sweat wicking abilities mean that you and your children can play sports outdoors and not have to worry about how you may stink. Plus, nobody likes to have sweat marks in our underarms or back, so now’s a good opportunity to wave bye-bye to those potentially embarrassing moments.
Wearing the right underwear during hot and humid days can really go a long way. Especially for those of us who are prone to rashes and infections. We definitely don’t want to be outside in the park and have the feeling like we’re sitting in wet underwear, no, no, no. This one certainly goes for men and women alike. We’ll also have to consider our children on this one, since they may not notice the discomfort in the moment - they certainly might notice the difference once we’ve switched them up.
Light Colored Clothing
Have you ever been to a black sanded beach? Then you know that sand gets unbearably more hot than a beige sanded beach. That’s because dark colors, like black, navy, forest green and red all attract the sun. Not only do dark colors attract the sun, but they also absorb the heat. Light colors like white, pink, and light gray all reflect the sun’s rays, keeping you cooler for longer. If the sun is way too much for you this summer, consider wearing lighter shades.
Get Out Your Sun Hats/ Visors
Not only is summer the best opportunity to flaunt your favorite sun hats, but it’s also your opportunity to look good while staying cool and fresh. We love sun hats because they keep our body temperature’s cool, and they keep our skin, hair and scalp out of the sun. Bye-bye heat damage, hello soft and healthy hair. You already know how we feel about protecting your skin from those harmful UV rays. We don’t want to lecture, we just want you to stay safe and stylish. Don’t forget, your skin will look years better in the future the less you expose yourself to that sun.
There’s nothing worse than the feeling of tight, sweaty clothes on a burning hot day. That’s why we recommend wearing more airy clothes, that makes you feel good as you move under that sun. Tight clothes won’t give your body any ventilation, but will trap the heat. Whereas loose clothes let your skin breathe. Your skin does breathe and loves the air as much as you do!
