Wear loose clothing
What's better than looking good and feeling good? Wearing looser and breathable clothes like maxi dresses, skirts, palazzo pants, or tunics will help you stay cool while also looking great at the same time.

Choose light coloured clothing
Darker shades absorb more UV light from the sun, in other words, you will be feeling quite hot. Stay clear from dark colours and go for lighter shades instead. Not only will you stay cool throughout the day, but you will be rocking summer colours too!

There are other substitutes for the basic white or black long sleeve shirt. Instead of wearing an entire layer beneath your clothes, try wearing arm sleeves to cover up parts of your arms. It will look similar to the usual long sleeve shirt, the only difference is that you're not wearing an extra layer!

Choose lighter fabrics
Linen, chiffon and cotton are some of the best fabrics to wear during the warm weathers. Stay away from materials like wool or denim as they tend to make you warmer during the summer.
