Fashion Items to Help You Beat the Heat
For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere who live in countries that experience all four seasons, as well as those of you who live in the Tropics, the weather is only getting hotter day by day. July is one of the hottest months on average in South Korea too, but the heat isn’t going to stop fashion-lovers from getting dressed up.
Apart from incorporating the latest summer trends into your outfit, here are a few more tips to help you beat the heat while still staying stylish.
When it comes to sleeveless tops, muscle tank tops might come to mind first for some people, and satin spaghetti tops might come to mind for others. But sleeveless tops actually come in a variety of different designs, and aren’t always overly casual or overly formal. No matter where you’re going, there’s always a sleeveless top for every occasion!

Shorts are a given during the summer, but don’t go reaching for your favourite pair of denim shorts just yet. Not only are denim shorts tight-fitting, denim can also be quite a thick material. If you’re looking for maximum comfort while out in hot weather, you should try looser fitting shorts, or shorts made of lighter and more breathable material such as cotton.

Singaporeans love their flip-flops. Not only are they convenient to wear, the uncovered design helps wearers to keep cool during hot weather. While some flip-flops are designed to look less casual, most people still prefer regular plain flip-flops. However, that doesn’t mean you have to endure the heat and wear covered shoes if you want to dress up—why not try sandals instead?

Dresses, especially those that are not tight-fitting, are a great option for hot weather. Not only does the loose silhouettes of dresses allow for better ventilation and airflow, dresses are also an essential aspect of summer fashion. Mini dresses are especially in trend, and not only do they look cute, the shorter length makes for a breezier and much cooler experience.

Hats can be a contentious subject when it comes to summer fashion. While hats seem like an obvious summer fashion item, some people might not like having to wear extra fabric and might find hats stuffy. However, that might just also be because they haven’t found the right hat! Pick hats made of cotton or other breathable material, and you’ll be able to stay cool while also being protected from the sun.
