Summer is a wonderful time of the year with sunny days. However, these are hot months when you tend to sweat a lot and feel irritable. Offices without air-conditioning, poor ventilated public transportation, and restrictive uniforms can leave us feeling less than fresh.Ã‚Â Being comfortable and cool is very important, apart from being stylish and trendy in whatever you are wearing.
Summer dressing should involve keeping cool and dry, while protecting yourself from the sunÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ultraviolet (UV) rays at the same time.Ã‚Â Choosing clothing to wear in the hot summer months can be challenging if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to sacrifice fashion for comfort.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Light clothes that are easy to manage and can absorb sweat are more suitable for summer.Ã‚Â Natural fibres like cotton, linen, silk and viscose are not only coolers, but also healthier to wear than man-made fabrics like polyester, rayon, and nylon, because they Ã¢â‚¬Å“breatheÃ¢â‚¬Â and naturally absorb moisture and dissipate it, keeping you cooler and dryer as your body temperature rises.Ã‚Â
You can experiment with colours and patterns printed with flowers, leaves, polka dots, colourful stripes, and small checks.Ã‚Â Some of the in-colours for this season are all shades of pastel and earthly colours, pinks, turquoise, sea greens and sunny yellows.
Shorter and briefer garments are breezier and give you more exposed skin surface to dissipate sweat and body heat.Ã‚Â Short printed skirts, loose three-quarter pants teamed with a cool cut-sleeve tops or a body hug tee can make you stay cool and yet trendy this summer.Ã‚Â For those who want to hide the extra flab, try thin pants or long flowy skirts teamed with hip-touching tops. Ã‚Â For evening, try out knee-length back open dresses, or formal pants worn in soft colours with deeper shade of shirts teamed with a collar scarf.
Accessories are known to accentuate the looks of any dress; this summer, match accessories according to your attire, whether traditional by co-ordinating everything from head to toe, as long as it is done in the right way, or wild and unconventional look, however, this can be a big risk as chances of washing out the whole look are possible.Ã‚Â Co-ordinating is good and so is experimentation, but it is advisable to stay in safe boundaries and not over emphasize on any part of your dressing.
Open shoes offer the comfort of cooler feet.Ã‚Â If your job or any occasion requires closed shoes, leather lining and leather inner soles help reduce the problem of sweaty, smelly feet!
