How To Dress For Hot Weather


back to blog

It’s officially summertime! The weather is beautiful and sunny, and we’re enjoying every minute of it. However, sometimes it can be tough to know what to wear when it’s so hot out. That’s where we come in! We’ve put together some of our favourite summer outfits for when you have to be out and about in the heat.

Hot Weather Essentials

  • Cotton – One of best fabrics to wear when it’s really warm is cotton. It’s soft, lightweight, and breathable.
  • Light Coloured Clothing: Always try your best to opt for lighter coloured clothing as to not attract more of the sun unnecessarily. If you do opt for darker hues make sure the fabric is lightweight and breathable like cotton fabrics.
  • Loose Fitting Clothing: Opt for clothing that isn’t tight fitting and going to make you feel like you’re stuck in your clothes with sweat.
  • Sun cream: An absolute must-have for an hot day in summer is sun cream!
