How to stay stylish in this heat

thefashiontag.com

Temperatures have been soaring these past few days and unless you stay naked or wear your hottest bathing suit/ swimming trunk, it’s difficult to remain cool, comfortable and stylish all at once.

But there is a way! For both ladies and gents!

Here are a few basic tips to help combat the heat and the contrarieties that come with it, style-wise.

LADIES

LIGHT-WEIGHT DRESS

I cannot even think of wearing anything else than a dress. I find that white, light-weight dresses make the heat somewhat more bearable while still looking pretty. I recommend white because it reflects heat away from you instead of absorbing it like black would.

But having said that, I’m also a huge fan of colors!

SHOES

I personally opt for wedges as I’m short! But if I had a few more inches on me, I would definitely go for flat sandals. There is something about a lady with long legs wearing flat sandals! (but I would never know!)

MAKE-UP 

Never leave your house without a proper sunscreen! And wear as little makeup as possible to allow your skin to breathe and avoid getting sun rashes.

The Bobbie Brown lightweight BB cream seems to be the perfect companion. Not only does it have SPF, but it also provides a natural sun glow. And to make it even more appealing, it contains caffeine, which helps reduce redness.

GENTS

Thankfully, a lot more attention is being put on mens fashion these days and stylish options and colors are not lacking.

SHORTS

You have shorts and you have shorts, meaning that not all shorts should be allowed! My favorite for the summer are colored bermudas. They’re fun, stylish and generally very fitting.

TOP

If shorts are permitted at work, but a certain dress code is still required then a button down shirt is the answer. Plain, white and fitted, with rolled-up sleeves.

But, if you don’t have to and the heat is blasting hot, then a faded, soft cotton T-shirt always works. I tend to like deep v-necks or a wider round neck to show off the chest!

SHOES

Standard white sneakers or loafers will always do the trick wether you want to dress down or dress up the outfit.

GROOMING

Say NO to sun beds to kick start the tanning process. Instead opt for spray tanning. And don’t worry, the technology has much improved and thankfully so has the orange color!

Et voila! You’re set to go!
