10 Simple And Stylish Ways To Keep From Sweating Your Balls Off This Summer
There are a million weather apps for your smartphone, but Yahoo’s is our favorite. It gives you the 5 and 10-day forecasts, chance of precipitation, wind & pressure levels, a map of weather patterns in your area, and seemingly a million other facts about what’s going on weather-wise in your city. Plus it looks killer.
Outlier makes clothes that bridge the gap between performance and style. The label’s New Way Shorts offer quick-dry fabric, the perfect length and a whole slew of colors. They’re a must on days that start off on the streets of the city and end by the pool or at the beach.
It may seem simple, but wearing a metal-banded watch is a must in the summer. Leather will cause your wrist to sweat and your wrist sweat will make your leather band smell like butt.
Pack a bandana in your back pocket this summer. It’ll help you wick away sweat on the hottest of days and add another detail to your outfit. If having it below your torso makes you feel like a wanna-be gangster, just treat it like a pocket square up top.
Wear linen pants. It’s the most underrated fabric, but the perfect option for when it’s just too hot for jeans.
Forgetting your sunglasses is for amateurs and will leave your eyes pissed-off in the summer sun. Keep track of your pair with this wearable tech and tracker app from Tzukuri.
Wear short-sleeve shirts. Duh.
Wear in-ear headphones. Again, seems like another “duh” moment, but sweating into your Beats By Dre will ruin the leather earpieces and headband.
Tado is in the midst of a kickstarter that could bring affordable smart technology and app control to your apartment’s air-conditioning system. If you’ve been out sweating all day, you can at least return to a cool apartment.
If all else fails, and it feels like the fires of hell have arrived outside, pack a cooling vest under your clothes. If you’re a hypebeast, you could probably just rock the technical-looking thing over Pyrex shorts and actually get compliments. Try it.
Apparently, this summer is going to be wildly, inappropriately hot. We New Yorkers already got a taste of the sky-high temps over Memorial Day and, though it’s cooled off for the moment, it’s time to get ready for the worst.
It’s hard to stay stylish in the summer when layers come off, and sweating narrows down the selection of comfortable clothes that you can wear without ruining. But there are precautions that we can take. Here’s 10 such style and gadget options to help you stay cool this summer.
