MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The Philippines is a tropical country characterized by relatively high temperature and humidity. While most places across the archipelago enjoy warm weather almost all year, the heat and humidity always seem to intensify in the summer months.
As the country braces for another sweltering summer, Philips Domestic Appliances introduces innovative solutions designed to help people feel better, live healthier, and take care of what matters most to them. With temperatures set to soar, here are five tips to achieving the perfect summer #OOTDs anytime, anywhere:
- Embrace a “natural” look
When the heat is on, breathability is key when it comes to your clothes. Natural fibers such as cotton, rayon, and linen help draw heat away from the body – keeping you comfy when summer starts to get into full swing.
- Stick to light colors
Light colored clothes reflect light and heat. Wearing outfits built on light and neutral tones can help provide extra relief in the warmer months.
- Keep it loose
Clingy, sweaty clothes in the summer heat is not advisable. Loose-fitting clothing can go a long way towards helping you stay cool. Experiment with flowy dresses, cropped pants, loose shirts, oversized blouses and skirts with room to breathe.
- Step up your athleisure
Technical fabrics used in workout gear are usually moisture-wicking, but most of them can be pretty tight and form-fitting, which isn’t always great for summer. If athleisure is your style, swap out the tights for bike shorts and sweatshirts for loose-fitting tanks and crop tops.
- Minimize the accessories
While accessorizing can be one of the easiest ways to make your style stand out, a lot of dangling accessories like necklaces and bangles can stick to your skin in the heat. When it comes to accessories in the summer, go for one statement piece that stands out, like hoop earrings.
