Summer can be a challenging season to dress for many women. You reveal more about yourself and your body than in any other season and have fewer layering tricks at your disposal to either cover up certain parts or create a nice silhouette.It’s also harder to create a ‘new’ look every day, since you can’t really play too much with jackets, layers and scarves. In summer you need to be even smarter with the types of clothes you choose when you want to cover up certain areas. I personally don’t believe in using shape wear too much as it’s far too hot and uncomfortable. Instead choose smart tops, skirts and dresses that drape in all the right areas to cover up any bulges. Asymmetric dresses and tops are usually very good at doing that. White is your best friend in summer and is the most versatile colour to wear. Combine with almost every colour and pattern in your closet for a clean, modern look.Bodybasics offers you a wide range of comfort clothes to beat the heat this summer.

Since the temperatures are soaring in every part of our country this summer, let us check some tips for dressing for this season.

Keep your clothes loose.  The looser, the better. The less fabric you have actually touching your body, the cooler you will be. Believe it or not, a loose & flowing dress will keep you cooler than a pair of shorts & a skin tight tank.

Avoid flimsy fabrics if you don’t want your clothes to stick to your body. Lightweight fabrics are great for hot weather, but they need to have a little structure so that they don’t just cling to your body the second you start to sweat.

Choose clothes in natural fabrics. Cotton, for instance, is much more breathable than polyester or rayon. It’s also better at absorbing sweat and dries faster, which means you won’t feel sweaty as long as you would if your clothes were made of synthetic fabric.

Stick to light colours. Dark colours absorb light and make you that much hotter while light colours reflect light and help keep you cool. So go for light colours.

Make sure your clothes are fresh and clean. Never rewear your clothes between washes during summers as even light wear leaves dirt, sweat, skin cells etc trapped in the fibers of your clothes, which makes them less breathable and you hotter.

Whenever you go out wear a wide-brimmed hat or carry a lightweight, woven scarf in your bag. Drape the scarf over your shoulders or head whenever you go out in the sun, it definitely protects you from the scorching sun.

Keep your hair off your neck. A small cotton scarf is great for absorbing sweat, use it to tie your hair up. For an extra cooling effect, soak it in some cold water before you put it on.

Sit back and have fun with friends and family. That is what summer is all about. Shop online at www.bodybasics.in
