Natural fabrics will do the trick
Synthetic fibres are good conductors of heat and do not absorb moisture. This means they will leave you feeling hot and sweaty in the summer weather. Natural fabrics are light and breathable, and can absorb sweat away from your body.
What’s the right fabric?
Cotton is the best fabric if you want to beat this summer heat. Cotton absorbs heat and moisture from your body and evaporates it. It also allows circulation of air, keeping you cool in the scorching heat. Khadi is hand spun cotton that works as good as, if not better than processed cotton. We all know there are plenty of summer festivals, but we cannot go dressed in cotton. You can go for silk blends like silk bamboo, and silk cotton. They are soft and do not stick to the body.

For cover-ups, sheer fabric will keep your upper body cool and leave you looking stylish at the same time.
Choose loose fitting clothes
Loose fitting clothes allow circulation of air between your skin and the clothes. Be bold and try out clothes with cuts and key holes, they are fashionable and are guaranteed to keep you cool. Don’t go for clothes that are more than two sizes large as they will appear more oversized than trendy.

Reduce the amount of make-up you wear to just lip gloss and eyeliner. Summer is the best time to let your skin breathe and avoid the embarrassment of having cakey makeup. Overall, embrace the beauty of your natural skin.
