What To Wear To Look And Feel Cool In Warm Weather

Oct 13, 2007
The heat of the summer sun can make you sweat uncomfortably. When the weather outside is 90 degrees, commuting to work in a suit would not be such a pleasant experience. Here are some helpful tips to dress cool and feel cool in warm summer weather.

Select natural fiber fabrics like linen and cotton as these fabrics are good at moisture absorption and are breathable. Linen though easily wrinkles so it is best to just wear linen for after work or social occasions.

Avoid polyester and nylon as such fabrics trap heat. For the summer, shop for partially lined suits or sports jackets that have no lining. Also, if you don't want your dress shirt to cling onto your body and instead hold their shape, have them starched.

Avoid wearing an athletic top or a tank top under a dress shirt. Instead opt for a t-shirt instead under an open sports collar shirt or a dress shirt which helps absorb moisture from perspiration and is considered a fine look for summer. With a t-shirt, your dress shirt is protected against perspiration stains and it feels cool against the skin.

Wear light colors for summer for such help reflect the rays of the sun. Wear your light colored khakis in the summer and reserve those in darker color for the cold winter months. Use a hat to protect yourself from overexposure to the sun's heat and to prevent sun stroke.

As you will be perspiring, anti-perspirants and deodorants are important. Spritz on a light cologne scent to smell fresh.

Summer time gives you the opportunity to use sandals and lighter shoes. While sandals are acceptable for social events, flip flops should be exclusively for the beach only. Summer may be a time to not wear any socks at all but bear in mind that perspiration can stay on your foot and leather will get ruined with moisture. As sweat can be a problem even with sandals, you might want to spray your leather shoes and sandals with a water protective spray.

As it is summer, everybody will be out for some fun at the beach. When it comes to men's swimwear (shorts or trunks), men should pay close attention to their body style to know what looks best on them. Tall guys would look good on boxer style shorts or swimming trunks that are longer. Men who are not blessed with height look better on trunks and shorts with shorter legs.
