Temperatures are rising, but that doesn’t mean your style has to plummet! Summer is certainly here and to get ready for the season, Laloom shares our top 8 summer style tips.
1 The Printed Dress
Be it a bouquet of floral or mixed patterns, make a splash this summer rocking a feminine frock.
2 The looser, the better
The less fabric touching your body, the cooler you will be. A loose and flowing maxi dress will keep you cooler than a pair of shorts and a skin-tight tank top. Flowy tops and dresses are better than anything form fitting, as summer is hot and wearing clothes that are very form fitting will make you and your clothes sweaty. Plus, flowy clothing and summer go hand in hand.

3 Skip the padded bra
Padded bras and a hot summer day = major bra sweat. Instead go for a soft, unlined bra or slip.

4 Bring the shade with you
Wear a wide-brimmed hat, or carry a lightweight scarf with you to drape over your shoulder or head whenever you feel like it.

5 Cover up
Direct sunlight not only damages your skin, it raises body temperature. Choosing a cover up like a kaftan means your cover-up doubles as a dress – a hidden cover up out in the open.

6 Light Colours
Dark colours absorb light and make you feel hotter, while light colours reflect light and help keep you cool. Not only will lighter colours keep you cooler but they also have a better summer vibe.

7 Go for bigger
The cardinal rule for hot weather dressing is that bigger is better. Extra wiggle room allows for more air to circulate.

8 All in the fabric
To stay cool on steamy days, it’s best to seek our materials like cotton, as the fibres are hollow in the centre, allowing them to absorb perspiration and release it quickly. Silk is also a great summer material because it’s natural, breathable and cooling.
