HOW-TO: Dress Cool to Beat the Heatwave

You no longer have to compromise on style.

Ah, our local weather. From unpredictable periods that are extremely hot and humid to endless downpours. With weather that may not be the best for dressing up, it’s best if there is a transitional wardrobe on hand.


I. Floaty Dress

This season, opt for baggy or loose silhouettes instead. Unlike body-fitted garments, loose clothing is comfortable and does not trap heat. I selected these two dresses: A Silk Crepe de Chine dress from The Row and a Crochet-Trimmed Linen Midi Dress from Gabriela Hearst for its breathable materials. Both dresses are feature a bell-shaped sleeve to keep you feeling fresh throughout the day.


II. Oversized Tailoring

Oversized tailoring doesn't necessarily mean shapeless. Rather, it is a perfect constituent for layering in any season. Besides the Biker Suit, you can pair your oversized blazer with a long skirt or dress for a play on proportions. To finish the look, I will match the ensemble with an ear cuff from Anne Manns and the Lola Small Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag from Burberry.


III. Cut-Out & Slits

Clothes with cut-outs and slits are the perfect connotation to staying fresh during the warmer period. In particular, I love the mulberry silk-satin dress from Dion Lee that has a cold-shoulder detailing on a fluid silhouette. Whether you are travelling outdoors or working on your desk- this will get you covered!
