Summer has already set in and we are experiencing an increase in temperature. In India, the temperature has been fluctuating between 38 to 42 degrees. It is very important for you to dress appropriately as it can bring relief to the body. It is important to dress smartly, by wearing the right clothes with the right colours, in order to beat the heat. In this article, we talk about Summer Fashion Tips.
The scorching sun and excess heat can make you sweat and get you dehydrated. We sometimes get heat rashes, prickly heat boils etc., which irritates the skin. It is very important to eat and dress right in order to help the body tackle the excess heat.
Summer Fashion Tips
- Go for comfortable cotton.
Cotton is the fabric for the summer season. It allows the skin to breathe. As you sweat, it allows the air to evaporate the sweat from the body. This in turn helps to avoid infections due to bacteria and foul smell.
Cotton is a natural fabric which helps the body to cool off easily. It is a soft and stretchy fabric. It keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter and so it is advisable to wear cotton all year long.
Go for cotton dresses, shorts, shirts, kurtas, palazzos etc. Mix and match the combination. Use proper accessories like jewellery, shoes, scarves and bags.
- Try the lighter colours.
Light shades of colour like white, yellow, beige, light pink, blue and light green keep you cool. These colours reflect back the sun rays and so the body remains cool. In contrast, dark colours absorb the sun rays, trap the heat and make us feel hot.
Try wearing fresh spring colours and prints, which will give you a nice look. Wear thin layers with interesting designs and mix and match clothes.
- Loose clothes are in season.
Avoid wearing tight clothes which restrict the circulation of air. Loose and airy clothes will help the body to breathe by proper air circulation. Some of the best options are loose sleeved tops, knee length skirts, short kurtas, cotton loose shirts, loose cotton pants or skirts.Take time and invest in some good summer dresses which will suit your body type.
- Smart style of clothes
Try to be smart by choosing the clothes that suit your body type, cover up your bulges and excess fat and at the same time gives you a good sense of comfort and style. Choose smart tops, skirts, salwar kameez, kurtas and formals which will enhance your look. For e.g., choose asymmetric dresses and tops which look good on almost everybody. For an apple shaped body type, tops that have a good fit around the bust but wider at the tummy will look good. Covering up the body is an ideal thing to keep the body protected from the high UV rays.
