The summer months are upon us once again and that means warm, sweaty days and nights. For some, it’s their most-awaited season; but if you’re one of those who do not take kindly to sweltering weather, we have rounded up some easy-on-the-pocket tips and tricks that you can use to keep yourself stylish and fresh this summer.


Keep it light.

Stick to your usual white tees or pastels when going out. Dark clothing absorbs light, making you feel hot and sticky. On the other hand, light clothing reflects light so it helps you feel cool and fresh while soaking in the sun.


Wear loose, breathable fabrics.

By breathable fabrics we mean clothes made from natural fibers like cotton. This type of fiber does not trap heat like synthetic ones do, such as rayon and polyester. Elevate your mood by choosing loose clothing over skin-tight ones. Air circulates better when you have some room underneath your clothing, making you feel more comfortable and free to move when you’re out and about. Now is the time to pull out those sultry outfits you bought last year.


The fewer embellishments, the better.

We want to feel carefree during warm weather so it’s best to avoid clothing that has too many embellishments like sequins, beads, pearls, and whatnot. These ornaments weigh the fabric down, causing it to stick to your skin, thereby trapping body heat. The same thing applies when wearing jewelry. Chunky, metal accessories like necklaces, bracelets, and rings tend to feel heavy and absorb heat faster so stay away from those for a while.


Bring a hat or scarf.

If you hate the sun but don’t want to bring an umbrella, wide-brim hats or scarves are two of the best alternatives. These help protect the scalp from UV rays, allowing you to feel cooler. Wide-brim hats are your best friend if you need extra shade. But if you want a more classic look, simply tie your granny’s old scarf around your head, pair it with your fave sunnies, and you’ll surely look like a movie star from the 1950s.

Pick the right sunglasses for your faceshape.

However, not all sunglasses styles fit every person. Sunglasses come in many shapes and sizes so it is important to pick a design that brings out your features. For example, aviators are great for heart-shaped faces; round glasses for those that are square-shaped; and wayfarers look nice on round-shaped faces. Oval faces are lucky though, for any size and style suits them perfectly.

Hide sweat with prints.

Having sweat stains on your back while on a road trip with your crush can be humiliating embarrassing. If you know you’ll be moving a lot or you simply sweat too much, hide it by choosing a printed shirt or dress. Patterns camouflage sweat stains so your date would hardly notice them. Plaid, stripes, and polka dots are popular choices but since its summer, floral would be a great choice as well.


Wear sunscreen.

During summer, the sun is extra active and expels harmful UV rays. Exposure not only causes sunburn, but it also causes premature skin aging, even worse, skin cancer. If you plan on flaunting your beautiful body at the beach, protect your skin by always wearing sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. Our skin is our greatest accessory so make sure you are taking care of it.

You don’t have to buy a lot of things to be summer-ready. In fact, you might not need to buy anything at all. The best thing about this season is it’s not very picky when it comes to trends. What you wore last year can still be used today—you only need to be more conscious about the type and the material of your clothing.
