The summer heat is just around the corner which means that maintaining our modesty standards can be very challenging!
Usually what we resort to is a good ol’ cardigan and layering of pieces to make modesty stylish but this may not be such a good idea in the summer! (‘Cause sweating just isn’t cute!)
So here are some of my tips and tricks to beat the heat while maintaining our modesty standards!
Tip #1: Wear lightweight Fabrics: Knit jerseys and cotton are the best!
Wearing these types of fabrics are not only breathable fabrics but are very comfortable in the summer heat!
Maxi dresses, and skirts are usually made out of this breathable material! And not to mention so affordable at places like ROSS, TJ MAXX and Forever21!
Tip #2: Wear Single Pieced Clothing Items!
Dresses are going to be your best friend in the summer!! Skirts are awesome and all but we all know the hassle of wearing a skirt and having to layer an undershirt + a shirt + a belt! I love wearing maxi skirts in the summer because they usually are already good ”stand alone pieces” that don’t require too much decoration up top!
Tip #3: Breathable FOOTWEAR!
Sandals!! No duh! Wearing heels is my favorite and I will continue to wear them (yes even in the summer) but when I go to festivals/summer shopping etc I always make sure to wear either sandals or open toed heels! What a difference it makes! It is said that you can regulate your body’s temperature by your feet and your neck.
Tip #4: Put your jewelry in the freezer!
Haha I know this sounds a bit strange but it really works! Pop your favorite statement necklace for an hour in the freezer (preferably in a plastic bag) before you head out. Once you’re ready to head out wear your refreshingly cold necklace and watch how it cools down your body temperature! This of course is temporary but I have noticed that I stay cooler, longer!
Alright now that I’ve shared my tips and tricks with you all let’s get on with today’s outfit!
Stars and Stripes is what’s going on for a Tuesday afternoon!
I adore this dress I bought from a midnight deal on Jane!
I adore anything patriotic! Stars, stripes, red, white and blue yes please!!
Now I added my white lace skirt extender for some extra length! Plus the lace adds some feminine texture!
For my hair and makeup I wore a classic red lip and a vintage half up half down hair do with a red hair bow!
Well that wraps up today’s post! I hope you all enjoyed it and let me know some of your tips and tricks for dressing modestly in the summer!
