Stay unflustered by the heat and sweat that summer throws on you by wearing the shield of cotton and loose fitting garments. Lighter shades, pastels, summer dresses and florals are both comfortable and fashionable summer attire
2. Of Shades and Shadows
Don the sunglasses that have been hiding in your handbag for too long. Sunglasses block harmful UV rays and guard your eyes from heat and dust. You could also pick out those colourful umbrellas and breezy scarves to guard your hair and skin.
