It can be a nightmare. Getting caught out in the heat in the wrong clothes isn’t very comfortable and it’s so easily avoided. If you’re heading away to a hot country this is our guide to staying cool in the right clothes.
Shorts are an essential piece of beach wear, if you’re heading into the sea you’re going to want a pair of swim shorts to make the most of the hot weather. Long board shorts might seem like a good idea but avoid them, there’s nothing worse than having to walk around with a soaking wet massive pair of swim shorts on. If speedos are you thing you can always don a pair. As we mentioned earlier, you might want to consider the country you’re in first, some more conservative countries might frown upon it.
T-Shirts & Vests
If you’re going for a T-Shirt you’ll want something that’s light coloured and loose fitted. Heading in and out of the sea you don’t want to be too fussy about it getting dirty so don’t take your favourite tee down to the beach. Vests are ideal for the beach and mean you’re covered up enough to head into a restaurant at lunch.
How can you go to the beach without a pair of flip flops or sandals. A tip if it’s particularly hot and you’ve got a pair of black flip flops. Do not leave them out in the sun. You’ll end up not being able to put them on until they’ve cooled down!
Warm Weather Hats
You need something that’s going to stop you from getting too hot but also allows your head to stay cool. Wide brimmed hats are a great choice but it’s often hard to find something that looks good. A snapback or a bucket hat are ideal in the sun, you can look good and keep the sun out of your eyes.
Hot countries needn’t be a worry, you can see how simple it is to put together an outfit for the hot weather. It just takes a little bit of planning and checking ahead to the country you’re visiting. It’s also good to have an idea beforehand of the kind of places you’re going to be visiting. If you’re going to be trekking around cultural monuments all day and grabbing a quick bite to eat at night you’re not going to need anything too smart. Prepare and you’ll have no problem finding what to wear in a hot country.
