Shorts, skirts & crops are your best bets. If you want to cover your legs, cotton printed flowy pants are a great alternative.
Loose flowing sleeveless tops are the coolest. If your arms are a challenge, try cap sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. Short sleeves will often make your upper arms look thicker.
Lighter colors attract less heat- white, pink, yellow, lime & orange are good bets.
Thin cotton (woven or knit) is the coolest fabric- avoid heavy denim, spandex or polyester.
Avoid tight waistbands or tight armholes. Loose clothing that doesn’t “touch” is more comfortable, but avoid baggy or shapeless styles.
Always carry a lightweight jacket or cotton sweater for cool evenings or frigid air conditioning.
Keep your neck bare- avoid choker necklaces and scarves. Save your scarves for your waist or under a jacket lapel. Accessorize with earrings, bangle bracelets or long necklaces.
Sandals are the best footwear. If you need to wear a closed-toe shoe, sprinkle the inside with talcum powder or wear footsie socks (Peds) to keep your feet from sweating and ruining the inside of your shoes.
Try ExOfficio wicking underwear and remember to always keep your underwear hidden.
Poise Roll-on Cooling Gel ($8 drugstores) is a boon for hot days; the gel can be applied on wrists and neck for heat relief.
