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.
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.

Grieder Missoni dress – CHF260
But having said that, I’m also a huge fan of colors!
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!)

Grieder, Anne Thomas leather sandals – CHF250
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.

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

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.
Zara, slim fit shirt – CHF29.95
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!
Zara, faded T-shirt – CHF14.95
Standard white sneakers or loafers will always do the trick wether you want to dress down or dress up the outfit.
Grieder, Tods loafers – CHF360
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!
Garnier, Ambre Solaire Bronzer – CHF12
James Read – CHF37
Et voila! You’re set to go!
