What To Wear On A Hot Evening Out
July 22, 2019
Sunshine and nights out are the perfect combo, but it's not easy to stay stylish in the heat. Whether you're in a heatwave or on holiday, we've put together some tips for keeping it cool in every situation.
1) The Beach Bar
Chino shorts are a holiday staple, and they're a great piece to take from sightseeing to sipping cocktails. Style yours with a short-sleeve shirt, wear it open with a crisp white tee underneath, it'll strike a smart casual feel and the layers will keep you covered if the temperature starts to drop.
2) The Swanky Bar
Hotel bar on holiday or rooftop bar at home, this is the chance to indulge in summer tailoring. Pastel pinks and dusky blues are a season fave. Swap the usual shirt with a tee to keep it looking dapper but relaxed, and don't be afraid to mix and match different coloured trousers and blazers. Finish with a pair of loafers and a sleek watch.
3) The Pub Garden
Sunshine goes hand in hand with pub gardens; what better way to spend a sultry summer's eve than with a beer in your hand and a seat at your local? Chinos and trainers are a smart casual combo that'll suit any beer garden, pair yours with a short-sleeve shirt in a light, breezy fabric to stay subtly stylish.
4) The Club
Clubbing outfits can be difficult to get right in hot weather, so we've got a failsafe formula… Pick a pair of lightweight suit trousers and wear them with smart trainers, or brogues depending on how fancy the venue is. Finish with a simple tee, turned up at the cuffs to ooze that stylish without trying vibe.
5) The Gig
The classic rocker look isn't too summer-friendly, so ditch the leather jacket and find a short sleeve Hawaiian shirt instead. Pair it with black skinny jeans and finish with some lightweight Chelsea boots and you'll keep your cool in a crowded venue this summer.
