Summer fashion is always a pleasure to behold, but with the current heat wave, it has become too uncomfortable to be fashionable or to wear makeup. I do not cope well in the summer, I am prone to Hay Fever which is a nuisance, and my contact lenses bother me in the sun (that is why I have my sunnies on in most of my outfit posts), and I hate wearing my glasses. They make me look like a nerd even though they are Givenchy.
Anyways, I have some tried and tested fashion tips to help us all feel good and look good while this heat wave is on.
Say No To Black
Wearing a black or a dark coloured piece during this heat wave is not a good idea. My sister wore a black sexy dress two days ago and she felt like yanking her dress off at work at a point. Dark clothing absorbs more light which explains why we get hotter when we have a dark coloured piece on. My advise is to safe them till it is cooler.
Have Your Sunnies Ready
With the warm weather and Hay Fever going on, make sure you have your sunglasses on when outdoors. This hides your eye bags if you have been up all night because of the heat, and it gives you an instant chic look which is always good.
With the temperature reaching 30c and above, wearing a sun cream is a must if you love your skin. Especially if you are going to be out in the sun for a while. I won’t leave the house without it.
Avoid wearing trainers, sneakers, boots, shoes, and any footwear that will make you wear socks or cramp your feet. This is the perfect time to show off your well pedicured feet so make the most of it.
Crop tops, tank tops, short, sleeveless tops. dresses and jumpsuits; the list is endless when it goes to great summer pieces to wear during this heat wave. If you are OK with showing some skin then you have unlimited options. Just avoid dark coloured pieces as I previously mentioned.
Finally, don’t forget your deodorants. They are a must-have this season. Top up as frequently as needed. There is nothing more unfashionable than a stylishly dressed woman with sweat patches under her armpits.
That is all folks. Do you have any summer heat wave fashion tip to share? Sound off in the comment section.
