  • Stock Up On Dresses
    This is a pretty obvious one because it’s a no brainer that wearing a dress in the heat gives you the ability to feel a little more free and get a little more air around your body to cool you off. The less amount of fabric sticking directly to your body, the better. To pair with this tip, I suggest wearing a wrap dress as those tend to be a little more flowy and you can adjust how tight it is around you.
  • Wear Shapes That Fall Away from You
    Whether dresses, tops, or skirts, try to find pieces of clothing that fall away from you. Paper bag shorts and pants as well as clothing like wrap skirts and skirts that flare away are great pieces to wear in the summer because they don’t hug your body. Though there are many places that you’ll go and find items such as bodycon dresses, they aren’t always the best for dressing for the heat.
  • Avoid Black
    White and bright colors reflect the sun and don’t absorb heat. Black absorbs heat and you’ll feel it when you wear it, so try to avoid darker colors and go for more pastels or lighter colors. Even more, try wearing a variety of prints as prints are great for hiding any sweat marks in the case that you are outside and getting a little bit drippy.
  • Go for Cutout Pieces
    A big trend during the summer are cutout dresses and cutout tops. You’ll find them mostly everywhere in a variety of different styles. With the cutout pieces, you’ll be able to have less fabric on your skin without feeling like you’re wearing a bathing suit.
