Dressing for the Heat

July 23

Pretty much no matter where you live right now, it’s more than likely that it is HOT, HOT, HOT! When the weather is still and sticky it’s no fun getting dressed and going outside. But whether it’s for your job or an event, there will be occasions this summer that you will have to pull out some “real” clothes to wear when you’re out and about in extreme heat. Don’t focus too much on cuts, but on the fabric. We know that not everyone wants to wear mini dresses and tank tops with shorts. It’s a well-known fact that linen is a dream in summertime. But you can also look for cotton gauze, silk blends (pure silk shows sweat stains!), and modal or tencel. All of these are wearable and breezy. Cotton t-shirt dresses are easily dressed up with cute sandals and a fun turquoise necklace. Loose jogger pants are on trend and easy to wear with a flowy top, half-tucked. It’s possible to be stylish and beat the heat, we promise. Come on in to Rags, get a cold drink and see what you can find!
