How do you feel after so many weeks, months in the lockdown? Do you still feel inspired or a bit down? I feel a bit tired and with a lack of inspiration. We went through big changes lately, after settling down with our current situation and life I feel a bit down, and for a need of a break. It was same with today post, I thought I will skip it as I had not much to tell you and inspire you with. But then I read something that gave me a little kick. Most of the time I prepare outfits, what I think suits all kind of climate, but as summer is approaching and many of you live in the hot climate countries I felt I would like to give you a bit of inspiration for that kind of condition and create a capsule wardrobe for hot climate. And if we’ll be able to travel this year, we can also take it as travel list to hot climate destination.
Capsule Wardrobe For Hot Climate
Sea, sun and sand. That sounds so good, almost unrealistic. Something that we dream about for most of the year. But for some of you, it can be everyday life. Your lifestyle, your home. And that means even work, shopping and running around. With little or no time to hit the beach. So what would be the best for everyday life in that kind of condition to keep you cool and looking your best through the day? The secret is in the materials and shape of the clothes. You won’t feel great in the skin-tight polyester top when you can step out in chic wrap dress. So let’s have a look at how I would build my hot climate capsule wardrobe.
Basics Of The Hot Climate Wardrobe
Dresses, flawless skirts, chic shorts and airy tops are the basics of the hot climate wardrobe.
Wrap skirt or a silk skirt paired with the simple t-shirt is a great option for work. To sit in the air condition office for a whole day can be too much sometimes, so to have a bit of sleeve on your shoulders can be a nice touch.
To add a bit of freedom to your wardrobe, shorts and linen pants are perfect when you need to run around either of kids or for shopping. In a long version are a great companion if in any case, the weather gets colder.
Accessories – leather sandals for work, espadrilles for weekends and for everything else all-time basics slip-on are your staples. Hat and sunnies are your best friends, and lovely summery finishing touch will be added with the basket.
Always try to stick to natural materials. Silk keeps you cool, cotton and linen let your skin breath and it’s really airy. I stick to leather shoes as they last for many years to come and straw accessories are the summer must-haves.
I love neutrals and I stick with them even for now. But summer is here to enjoy colours and feel the fresh air. So if you like to add something more colourful this is the best capsule wardrobe when you can add whatever you like.
