Quite envious lah knowing that we can’t look stylish in spring, autumn and winter fashion! 🥵 But on the bright side (pun intended?), we don’t need to stress about our fashion every season! Plus, we can invest more money into our evergreen clothing that would last all year long~

And hey, who says summer clothing can’t look stylish? We just need to know a few nifty tricks so that we can effortlessly level up our tropical fashion! 🕺🏻

Ready to look AND feel fashionable with us? 😝

1. Stay ❄️ with lightweight AND breathable clothes!

This is because heavy fabrics LOVE clinging to your skin, trapping the heat between your clothes and skin and building up sweat faster. On a similar note, clothes with lightweight material (i.e. 100% cotton or linen) are a godsend in maximising airflow through the fabric, letting you dry and cool off much faster than other materials. 🍃 You’ll probably still be sweating underneath the hot sun, but it’ll still be much easier to cool off and stay fresh!

Opt for a flowy/loose outfit for maximum airflow!


2. Swap your flip-flops for timeless leather sandals

It’s all too easy to stick to latex slippers that you change every two years, but you’d be missing out on a stylistic and comfort opportunity! Leather sandals are great not only in the fashion sense (pairs well with most outfits, and comes in different variations that are mostly stylish), but they’re also suuuuuuuper comfy – they even get more comfortable the longer you wear, as the leather shapes according to your feet!

Leather sandals may be costlier, but they’ll last A LOT longer than your regular rubber pairs. Worth the investment!


3. Say NO to cheap, counterfeit sunglasses!

Of course, we know that the fake branded shades we bought super cheap at the pasar malam would have no UV (ultraviolet) protection – purely for looks mah! 😎 In reality, they actually cause more harm than not wearing sunglasses AT ALL! 😱 This is because your eyes THINK they’re in low light with cheap sunnies, so your pupils (which control how much light enters your eyes) will open up to allow more UV rays in and harm your precious eyesight.

So, be sure to invest in genuine sunglasses that offer 100% UV rays protection ya? #LoveYourEyes


4. Swing into #summervibes with bright & colourful… colours!

There’s a scientific reason why summer fashion has nothing dark and brooding in its colours: bright colours absorb less heat than their darker counterparts, with white absorbing the least heat! Pink, yellow and the like are considered “bright” due to the level of light they reflect back, the same reason why we call black and navy blue “dark” colours. So, don’t be emo black yabring some colours into your life!


5. Reduce your accessories to one statement piece

Who likes the feeling of their accessories sticking onto their sweaty skin when it’s 🔥 as heck kan? Thus, this would be a good time to KonMari and simply stick to ONE statement accessory (i.e. earrings, headbands, a single bracelet), so you won’t have to tolerate any sticky situations (pun intended again) anymore. Plus, you can adopt a more distinctive style where your sole accessory speaks volumes! After all, less is more. 😁


6. Find ways to keep your clothes smelling fresh and fragrant longer
