Style Smart: How To Look Cute Despite The Heat | Clozette

These days the weather has been unbearably hot in our region. Yes, we may be tropical babes who are used to warm weather but the summer season is on a whole different level. Dealing with sweaty pits, damp hair and that feeling of having a sheer layer of sweat all over your body the whole day is not glamorous — at all. But don't despair, there are a lot of ways to still look cute despite the heat. Keep reading for tips on how you can stay stylish when it's 30°C outside.

Lessen the arm candy

It's not a good idea to wear heavy bling-bling in the summer. Not only will it give you a case of the sticky arm from unevaporated sweat, but it can also lead to the discolouration of your jewellery. The added weight just isn't worth it. Instead, choose a stylish timepiece made from sturdy metals that won't easily fade. Consider the Baby-G G-MS, which, in addition to being an arm candy itself, is also very smart in converting sunlight into its own source of power.

Step up your athleisure game

Feeling like you're always in a hot yoga session when you step out in the streets? We feel you. In this case, just go with the flow and wear clothes that are usually only reserved for the gym. Work out clothes can keep you breezy with their lightweight built and cooling fabrics. Now, you may think that athleisure is so 2017 but believe us when we say that with a few updates, you can come up with a fresh look. Aside from the classic tank top and trainers combo, you can also try pairing yoga pants with a flowy wrap-top or layering your cute sports bra with a sheer top.

Dresses for days

The most effortless way to beat the heat in style is to wear loose dresses. For those who identify as a 'pants-person', this can be a challenge. But what is summer if not a time to broaden your style horizons? Trade your heavy denim for cotton sundresses. Heed our advice; do it once to see how it feels and you may just find that it's more comfortable to get out of your fashion comfort zone.

Keep it light

When it comes to summer dressing, you have to keep two things light: the hues and the fabric. Pick outfits that showcase bright colours as these shades tend to absorb less heat. If you have a minimalist wardrobe, here's a guide on how to incorporate colours without betraying your core aesthetic. Next, choose light and breathable fabrics such as chambray, rayon and linen. Wearing clothes made from these fabrics will lessen the possibility of suffering from prickly heat.

Sport a sunhat

For now, retire the berets and baker boys. It's time to bring out those big sunhats once again! We know, it's a bit dorky to sport hats with big brims but it's a really practical way to keep cool this summer. Plus, with this eye-catching accessory, you can put a little less effort on your outfit and still look fabulous. If you want something more subtle, another alternative is to wear the trendy bucket hat

It’s Coachella season again! These past few days, countless Hollywood celebrities headed off to the valley to attend the most awaited music and arts festival of the year. Despite the heat of the sun, A-list festival-goers served up their hottest looks, and these are just some of our faves.



Tassel Madness

First up is Shay Mitchell owning the field with her all-black ensemble. Despite the dark colour, the dress the Pretty Little Liars actress wore dispelled any feelings of stuffiness with its square-cut patterns. Not to mention, it had this fabulous flair with its lengthy tassels flowing with the air.

Bold with Colours

Gigi Hadid, on the other hand, played with colours in her festival outfit. Her multi-coloured vest and accessories brought a nice pop of boldness to her look, but the supermodel kept it all from being too overwhelming by sporting white wide-legged pants for balance.


Hip in pink

Model Winnie Harlow fought off the heat this weekend with a cool bubblegum pink look. Not only did she wear a sporty baby pink pair of net innerwear, but she also kept it fab with her wavy pink locks. 

Boho chic

Joining the parade of colours is Alessandra Ambrosio. Keeping it chic under the sun, the model wore a black kimono robe with rainbow-striped hem and a sunset-coloured bralette along with a washed ripped jeans. But it was her round sunglasses that added that final vintage twist to her festival wear.


Statement glasses

Speaking of fab eyewear, Victoria Justice wore another piece worth mentioning. Her statement sunglasses gilded with green and white beads spelling out “Take me to the desert” was a perfect finishing touch to her grunge graphic tank top-denim jacket ensemble.

Purely white

Of course, we’re not forgetting Vanessa Hudgens, who has been known to slay the music festival every year with her on-fleek boho numbers. This time, she was spotted in a simple all-white look. Her lace-trimmed bralette paired with a matching tiered skirt was accessorised with a brown leather belt and a quaint straw hat, exuding graceful freshness during the event.
