Hi everyone, it’s Justine. It’s summer. It’s my favorite season of the year. Where I come from, in the south of France,
we have at least three months per year over thirty degrees Celsius, so that’s the weather
I love. It’s hot. It’s sunny. Everyone’s in a good mood. The question is, how to survive in such weather
and still look put-together? Especially in a working situation, for instance? So the tips I’m gonna share with you are
good for hot climates, but also humid ones. So if you happen to go on a vacation somewhere
tropical, these tips will work as well. Let’s go. Tip number 1: Look for fabrics that breathe
well. There are fibers that absorb the sweat, just
breathe better than others, and dry a lot faster. For instance, cotton, linen, modal, which
is a derivative of cotton… kind of the same thing but even better… or tencel. Just to name the fibers that are probably
the most famous ones. And most widely used in terms of natural or
fibers of natural origin. I’ve mentioned a lot in previous videos
that linen is a little bit hard to care for. It can crease when you wear it, behind the
knees for instance. It can lose it’s shape a little bit when
you wash it, if you don’t leave it to flat dry. But when it’s really hot outside, in summer,
like here, it’s a great fiber to wear. Fibers that will not perform as well when
it gets really hot are, for instance, polyester, nylon, acetate… Acetate is just a non-breathable fiber overall,
hot or not… And silk. Silk is a natural fiber but still not the
best when it’s really hot outside. Imagine you have a silk top. When you start sweating, it really sticks
to your back. If you’ve had silk tops you know that feeling. So silk also doesn’t perform really well
when it’s truly warm outside. Exception to those rules… There are synthetic fibers that perform well
when they are treated for that purpose, for instance, performance polyester that’s used
to do tennis shirts. They are for sport purposes. So these are treated in athleisure, in athletic
wear and in performance wear. But what you can find in ready-to-wear clothing,
readily available on the market is usually not very breathable. Then once you have selected the right fibers
that you like and feel comfortable in, make sure that you also pick the lightest weight
in the garments that you choose. For instance, cotton poplin is a very, very
thin, tight but breathable way of weaving cotton. It’s about as lightweight as it gets, and
in summer, it’s wonderful to wear. Or knitted little jerseys, thin ones, are
also very practical, because they don’t crease. You can just move it a little bit and it dries
faster. Much better than warm fabrics overall. Tip number two: Stick to light colors, no
black. Black absorbs the heat, so you’ll feel hot
temperatures even more, and you’re going to sweat even more. Same goes for dark colors. So try to stay as close to white and light,
light colors as you can, to get the reverse effect, and for instance, in warm countries
like in Greece, houses are painted white exactly for that reason. To reflect the light away instead of absorbing
it. Another trick that I can share with you is
to use prints. Because prints make it a lot harder to see
a sweat stain. Tip number three: Find smartly cut clothes. Garments that don’t touch your legs are
a great idea. For instance, A-line skirts, skater skirts,
maxi dresses that have slits on the sides, or an open back, or both. Or all of the above. Because anything that lets the air in, around
and between your legs, will create a nice flowy effect. If you’re wearing a maxi-dress on the other
hand, that has no opening and that goes floor-length, then you’re building a greenhouse for your
legs. So slits somewhere, and openings are great. Same goes for your entire outfit, not just
the legs. Try to go for boxy shapes, boxy cuts. Nothing that’s body-con or skin-tight. This is actually not ideal, what I’m wearing
today, but at least it’s a light color! For instance, a blouse in woven fabric in
very lightweight poplin, with thin straps – it’s great! Laser-cut fabrics, fabrics with cut-outs or
mesh fabrics are also airy options, but they still cover your body visually, so you won’t
look like you’re going out naked. If you do have to wear pants because it’s
a formal office context, then try palazzo pants, because they are so wide-legged and
only really touch you around the waist. High waistband, the rest is completely flowy. Stay away from thick fabrics, especially jeans… Especially if they are slim or skinny, because
that’s really heavyweight fabric. Jeans is a really, really heavy fabric. It’s not what you need on such a day. And if you’re wearing a sleeveless top,
which is smart, because you avoid the sleeve fabric, then make sure that under the armpit
you have enough space to avoid a sweat mark right here under your armpit. Tip number four: Find the right shoes. That is so important as well. Sandals are obviously ideal. They just let your feet breathe. They prevent odors, because your feet can
just dry a lot easier. Though if you’re in a more formal office
context and you do have to wear something other than sandals (it can happen), then try
to stay away from rubber. That means staying away from sneakers. Rubber does not breathe well. Even with the little dots on the surface like
they do on vintage sneakers. Try to stay away from leather as well. And try to find instead shoes that are in
fabric, in which you will wear cotton socks to help absorb the humidity, if any. If you still get odors (smelly feet) then
I would put a little bit of talc inside the fabric shoe and on the feet before you put
on your socks. This neutralizes odors and it dries immediately,
so it absorbs humidity brilliantly well. Tip number 5: Switch your accessories. In summer, fingers, and toes, and feet, and
everything, swell. Which is why you’ll feel that your rings
don’t really fit you anymore. And under the ring, you sweat. It’s not healthy for the skin at all. Skin under metal, sweaty, is a very bad combination. That’s why these days you see me without
my usual collection of rings. Instead, you can think about wearing earrings. And it’s an opportunity to try statement
pieces since you’re not wearing any other piece of jewelry. Then what about decorative sunglasses? You can go bold to match the statement earrings,
and protecting your eyes against UV rays is anyway always a good idea, isn’t it? Then as far as the purse is concerned, you
can switch to a mini-clutch format purse with just the essentials in there… You don’t want to carry extra weight on
such a hot day. And then a cross-body, very thin shoulder
strap, that minimizes contact against your skin on your body. The worst, when it’s hot and humid outside,
is to wear a backpack, if you know what I mean. Tip number 6: Save time on makeup. When it’s hot and humid outside, your foundation
will melt down. You will have to fix it several times a day. Instead, just don’t wear any foundation. Let your skin breathe. It really needs it. It will also prevent breakouts, because when
you sweat the pores get obstructed a lot faster and a lot more, so leaving your skin completely
bare is actually the best you can do for it. To keep your skin clean and hydrated throughout
the day you can spray thermal water onto your face and then gently rub, with a cloth, to
remove all the dirt. And that’s the best skin care you can do
on such a day. In the category “practical tips”, I also
have, “Please walk on the side of the street that has shade.” In my hometown, in southern France, the locals
walk on the side with shade, and the tourists walk on the sunny side, enjoying the summer. But then after 3 pm, they’re all completely
sunburned, and heavily, heavily dehydrated. It’s unnecessary, and it’s seriously dangerous. I know you want to get a tan when you’re
on holiday… on holiday somewhere exotic, tropical, but remember that the sun hits stronger
and burns a lot more in other areas of the world than back home, especially if you’re
from the northern half of Europe. I know I sound like your mom now, so I’m
gonna stop, but just the other day, a girl fell in front of me. She fainted in the subway. Her head hit the ground in front of my feet. And when that happens, I panic, so please
don’t do that to me. I hope you enjoyed this video. If you did, thumbs up. Thank you very much, and if you’re subscribed
to this channel, then I will see you very soon again in a new video. My videos are mainly about fashion. Have a great summer. Take care. Bye.

    Great video! Do you have any special tips for summer-hairdos? My hair is not as long as yours, but I hate the feeling of hair sticking to sweaty skin on my arms or shoulders. Even worse when it’s other people’s hair (in a full subway or so) 😝

    Hi Justine, I'm new to your channel but I simply love it! Thank you very much for sharing all your tips and tricks with us. My comment/question regarding wearing light coloured clothes during summer: I always have the problem that swet stains show on light colours, and my body is not lean enough to feel confident showing my back for example. I totally agree that light colours are best for hot weather, but how do you avoid sweat stains?? I usually end up wearing black for this reason – it gets much hotter in there but at least it looks… clean…

    Linen only looks good for the first hour of wearing, and then you're covered in creases. I don't know why anyone bothers wearing it, especially people who worry about looking "put together".
    I'm pretty careless about clothes and even I won't wear it- it just looks messy and unkempt within hours. Sometimes even minutes.

    You are so right regarding avoiding the sun. I was on vacation in Nantucket with one of my friends (who's French) and she insisted on going to the beach. Once we were there, I nagged her to leave telling her over and over again laying on the beach was not good for the skin. What I didn't tell her is that her skin looked 10 years older than her age. Long story short, she emailed me months latter after she had returned to France to tell me she had skin cancer!

    I love this advice, apart from one thing. I've backpacked and hiked in the American deserts for decades. The way to stay cool is to cover yourself and NOT to let the sun reach your skin. This has been scientifically tested and proven to be true. Think about it — the inhabitants of the middle east traditionally wear long robes for a reason. And sunscreen isn't a good substitute for coverage. In order to be effective it must be heavy and sticky. Instead, my standard outfit for summer in Paris is a shady HAT, a loose, very light, long-sleeved shirt with a collar I can fold up when standing in the sun to protect my neck, and a lightweight, below-the knee skirt. I wear shoes, never sandals — city streets are filthy, and toes and feet get sunburned too. And I'm walking 6, 8, or 10 miles while sightseeing, so arch support is crucial. If you're inside all day long and on the metro between home and work then obviously my advice doesn't hold. But if you're in the sun at all, you'll be much cooler, and happier, if you avoid exposing your skin to its rays. You'll also look a lot better when you're my age!!

    Sunscreens are so important,
    especially now with the climate
    change and protective rays are less . We are now not only exposed to UV A, UV B, but also much more damaging UV C!!
    The only thing to remember is that Vit D, which is essential, is not
    absorbed through the sun screens….so, make sure you take a supplement. Check with a pharmacist or nutritionist. ( I take Vit D3 2,000 IU )

    I now live in England, but even in the north we are getting hot summers nowadays. However, I used to live in Japan, very hot and humid, and have spent many hot summers in the south of France. Beautiful weather, but I do wilt easily. Lots of great, sensible tips from you, as ever. I would add: always have a sunhat, and/or a light scarf to cover head/arms/back of neck when you can’t stay in the shade. I used to treat myself to an inexpensive straw bag for the summer, doesn’t last long of course, but more comfortable to carry in hot weather than leather. Keep a real handkerchief in your bag, and you can dampen it (or your scarf, or a cloth sunhat) with water when it’s unbearably hot.

    Hello, came late to the party but i still watch this video and still learn a lot from it. Would you say that Viscose (Rayon) is a good material for summer? dresses from Reformation are super cute but often they are made from Viscose. Do you think they are worth the price tag too? Would love a video update of your thoughts on summer dresses from different more 'high-end' brands like that

    I am glad you mentioned silk. In my experience silk does not breathe as I had been led to believe and I quit buying silk shirts years ago. I prefer linen shirts in summer for many years. My body seems to run hot and in summer linen works for me although it can wrinkle just by looking at it someone once said. I have some linen pants that I wear in summer also. Love you and your videos. All the best to you. Cannot beat a white linen shirt! So very classic.

    I would add don't wear padded bras. Some of us still need a bra in the summer. Go for unpadded as the foam soaks up the sweat. I have lace which helps skin breath. Sports bras come in cotton and withstand a daily wash.

    Excellent video. I find that instead of a heavy moisturizer in the summer I switch to a moisturizing
    facial cleanser and rosewater facial mist with added glycerin. It is the perfect amount of moisture.
    Then blush, translucent powder, lipstick, eyeliner and mascara. Done and out the door.

    I discovered linen clothes for myself only in May, when making clothes for my own atelier. First we made some linen skirts for ourselves and after a short period of wearing it I realized I am no longer able to put anything made from artificial materials on myself. I literally feel very uncomfortable. Trough my mom and grandma always where in linen clothes in summer, I realized the benefits only in 31 years old. And now in summer we are making linen clothes for others, so people knew heat can be handled if you have proper clothes!

    Wear high spf mineral fragrance free sunscreen, a wide brim hat and cover up, you will thank me when you are older, this protects your skin from aging and skin cancers. Watch Dr Dray for skin care tips she’s a dermatologist. I’m an Aussie and at 55, fingers crossed, I’ve looked after my skin and covered up in the hottest part of the day and my skin is good. Like the advice re fabrics, hard to find non poly things here which is ridiculous considering our climate ❤️

    So helpful Justine. My fave tip was to wear statement earrings! Yes, must stay hydrated and in the shade.

    I find tencel to feel clammy in our hot, humid climate, but rayon is great, though fragile.

    Tips:

    Don't wear foundation

    Wear sunscreen which is non commodegenic- won't block pores

    Wear hair up above shoulders

    Wear sunglasses

    Don't forget the scalp can burn too, wear protective hair SPF spray

    Drink plenty of fluids to maintain hydration, including salads, fresh fruit and vegetables

    Take everything much slower, don't rush about

    Wear comfortable and breathable shoes, protect from blisters

    Wear lipstick or SPF lip balm

    If wearing a skirt be careful if your thighs rub in the heat as will leave the skin red and sore. Wear breathable cycling shorts underneath if this is an issue

    Have cool shower before going out and wear anti perspirant deodorant

    Carry a water thermal spray such as Evian, Vichy etc, to spray on face at regular intervals

    Plan any trips to avoid midday sun and peak hours when the sun is strongest

    Sit in the shade, find cool areas to rest

    If you sweat heavily then make sure to also be aware of loss of electrolytes. Coconut water mixed half and half with fresh orange juice will help replace lost electrolytes. Or an isotonic sports drink

    Try to carry as little as possible in your bag

    Think about using a tan optimizer such as imeedem tan optimizer. Still wear suitable sunscreen but this has added skin benefits

    Wear a suitable hat if desired

    Wear minimal make up, get eyelashes tinted and brows

    Go swimming

    Soak feet in cool water and Epsom or himilayian salts, to reduce swelling and soften skin

    Raise feet up when at rest

    Enjoy the sun but stay safe!

    @3:50: another clothing I would like to add is to wear things that do not touch your armpits. As a modest dresser and winter enthusiast summer can be rough.

    Thank you for this lovely video Justine. There were some great tips I did not know😊

    Edit: I just saw my Tipp get mentioned 😅

    Lots of good information…Thank you! I’m going to Sacramento, California for 3 weeks in August, which is very hot compared to my town of Spokane, Washington. Someday I would love to visit France, England, Ireland, etc, etc… What time of year do you recommend to avoid extreme heat or cold?

    What do you wear under silk pants? I notice that whatever underwear I wear, it will render a horrendous VPL. If I wear laser cut thongs, I look like I’m butt naked. Especially for neutral color silk pants. Please help. 🙂

    Justine: Choose clothes that don't have fabric between legs or under armpits.
    All women without a serious thigh gap: * decidedly choose always fabric between legs and under arm to avoid skin rubbing together. *

    Finnish tip: just jump into a lake or the sea and become a mercreature until the heatwave ends.
    I can not stand the heat at all. 23°C and I start melting. I still love summer though.

    Nice video. I can’t stand summer, I live in Miami and I hate the heat and humidity here. Planning on moving soon to a colder place. Great tips though. You’re a very nice lady. Thank you.
