Dress for a Hot Day

Fall is approaching, but that doesn’t mean we still won’t have a few hot days ahead of us. When the weather rises in Kansas City, MO, it can be difficult to want to dress well; you aren’t able to layer clothes for fear of being uncomfortable and sweaty, but you still want to look your best! In this week’s post of The Retreat at Tiffany Woods Blog, we’ve got a few fashion tips to help you dress more efficiently on hotter days!

Accessorize Properly
Although accessories might be the last thing on your mind, they can be a good way to help you stay cool and look better! Stay away from accessories like bracelets and necklaces. If you want to accessorize, pick a pair of sunglasses or a hat. The sunglasses will be able to shield your eyes from the harmful UV rays and brightness of the sun. Hats are very in; if you choose the right one, it can help you keep out of the sun while looking fabulous. Avoid wool or leather hats and pick a hat that will be light, like a straw hat!

Looser is Better
Fashion can dictate what we think is appropriate, but sometimes fashion trends aren’t the most practical to follow on a hot day. Opt for a loose-fitting outfit to allow for more airflow. Not only will you be cooler, but you’ll also exude a more laid back and casual style that’s perfect for warmer days.

Be Mindful of Fabrics
The type of fabric that you wear can determine your level of comfort. Choosing the wrong fabric during a hot day can make you sweat uncontrollably. We suggest choosing clothing that is made from lighter, more breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, and chambray. Be mindful that linen wrinkles easier than other fabrics. If you want to wear linen, dress for a more casual and aloof look to fit the fabric!
