Ready, Steady, Summers!
The summer season has arrived, and we know what you’re thinking! What to wear to avoid the sweltering heat while yet looking stylish! Team fashion collection offers some tips for you that will make you seem stylish, trendy, and prepared to slay and turn heads.
Go for light and pastel colours
Light hues, white dresses, and button-down shirts reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorb them.
Say no to Skin tight clothing
In the summer, loose-fitting clothing is your best chance for staying cool. Choose cropped, wide-leg slacks, loose shirts, giant blouses, and roomy dresses and skirts.
Remember breathability is the key!
During the rest of the year, you might not notice the difference between breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics, but in the summer, you will. Synthetics are usually not breathable, so make sure your clothes are made entirely of linen, cotton, or silk. Try eyelet and seersucker if you want to experiment with texture.
Transform your sleeves
The idea with summer clothing is to allow as much airflow as possible. Consider sleeveless camis and off-shoulder or puff-sleeve shirts if you don’t want to go completely sleeveless. Button-ups with short sleeves are another solid option.
Ditch your Denim
One of the heaviest fabrics is denim. If you’re wearing stretch or slim jeans, they can be a little too toasty for your summer look. Instead, choose pants made of light cotton or linen. If you must wear denim, choose wide-leg jeans with a lot of room for air circulation.
Shop your summer sandals
The summer is the ideal time to purchase a new pair of sandals. Slide sandals (like flip flops!) are popular because of their comfort and ease. A pop of colour adds so much more flair to your step and elevates any summer ensemble.
Dresses don’t have to be reserved for special events. When you don’t know what to wear, a comfortable summer dress is a great solution. Summer is the ideal time to wear mini-dresses, rompers, and miniskirts, but it’s also fine to go a little longer. Choose a sleeveless maxi dress or a long skirt for a boho summer vibe. A dress with a tie-front can let you breathe a little easier.
Minimize your accessories
In the heat, a lot of hanging necklaces or bangles can stick to your skin. Choose one bold piece of jewelry, such as hoop earrings.
