Summer is the season when we can get rid of those layers and layers of clothing to finally show some skin. For many women, summer can be a challenging season to dress. It’s also difficult 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. Shape wear should be avoided as the summer heat & resulting sweat might make you 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 hot-weather style tips that'll keep you looking as un-melted as possible.

Choose clothes in natural fabrics. Compared to polyester or rayon, cotton is much more breathable and also better at absorbing sweat and dries faster. Hence wearing cotton clothes in summer won't make you feel sweaty.

Wear loose clothes - 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 fabrics that 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 moment you start sweating.

Wear light coloured clothes. 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 as fresh and clean as you are. 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 with a bandana. A small cotton scarf or bandana 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. So folks, go ahead and shop online at and get ready for that cool and trendy summery look.
