Fashion Tips for Styling Sunny Weather Outfits

  • Wear Breathable Clothing. Choose clothes with light fabrics like cotton, silk, and linen to allow airflow through your body.
  • Opt for Vibrant Colors. Go for clothes with brighter colours. Dark colours absorb energy from the sun, whereas bright colours like white, orange, yellow, etc reflect light away from the body.
  • Go For Short Sleeves, Loose Sleeves, or Sleeveless. Dressing for sunny weather is solely about allowing as much air as possible to flow through the body. Opt for clothes with short sleeves, sleeveless or loose sleeves.  Men who have to show up at work may not have the option of going sleeveless. Instead, opt for long sleeves in breathable fabrics.
  • Wear Loose Clothing. To allow for airflow, avoid skin-tight clothing.

Let’s take a deep dive into some sunny weather outfit ideas and how your favourite celebrities are rocking them!

Sunny Weather Outfit Ideas

  1. Wear one-piece outfits

There has never been a better time than now to throw on your summer dresses! One-piece outfits like dresses, jumpsuits, etc are great because they are straightforward to wear and do not require layering. They are also perfect for the beach. If you are going to don one, make sure that they are loose and comfy enough to let air flow through your body.



2. Go for Vibrant Monochromes

The elegance that comes with wearing monochromes is unmatched, especially in white!

We love how Olar and Shaffy styled their all-white outfit! It speaks elegance, class, and royalty which is absolutely beautiful to stare at!

To get through the sunny weather, pick out monochromes in vibrant colours (orange, yellow, blue, etc.). The goal is to look fashionable while surviving this season after all.

Like Olar, you can chip in a hat into your white monochrome look; it’s sunny these days!

Men, take a cue from Wizkid’s loose cotton shirt, pants, and accessories (to the right). Simple and classy.

3. Bottoms

Another sunny weather outfit idea is bottom shorts. If you are comfortable with showing off some skin, you can opt for shorts, but avoid thick pieces of denim and go for their lighter counterparts like linen/cotton shorts or lighter pieces of denim.


4. Opt for wide-leg trousers

Wide-leg trousers are great if you do not want to show off some skin. They usually have a loose fit around the legs so they are a perfect alternative to tight-fitting jeans/pants. 

To style wide-leg trousers, opt for culottes or palazzos, and pair them with either crop tops, tunics as Olar did, or loose-fitting vintage-like shirts. We love styling our palazzos with all three 😍.


5. Tops

Pick out tops with short sleeves, loose sleeves, or sleeveless to aid airflow. Off-shoulder tops are a great option. You can also consider loose crop tops that will not hug your torso or stomach.

Rihanna’s style combination of her off-shoulder top and loose boyfriend jeans exudes sexy masculinity! It’s kudos to her accessories and Stilleto heels.



6. Footwear

Choose open-toe shoes like sandals and slides. They’d keep your toes exposed and help to let air through your feet. On the other hand, run as far as you can away from Leather and Suede shoes.


7. Accessories

Accessories are a big part of your look. Although you may not be wearing too many accessories, there are a few that are perfect for the sunny weather.

Looking fashionable in the hot weather is like eating your cake and having it, and that’s why you want to be thoughtful of how you style yourself this season because you’d be dressing less. However, accessories are available to help you elevate your look. At the end of the day, with accessories, you are eating your cake and having it!

Here are a few that are perfect for the sunny weather:

  • Dangling earrings or studs

This is a better option than necklaces because they won’t stick to your skin and cause you to feel the heat. They are also lightweight and comfy. Opt for colourful tassel earrings to look stylish.


  • Sunglasses
