In hot climates, it’s okay to show a little skin.
In addition to investing in some lightweight breathable fabrics, the key to keeping your body temperature down is letting the neck and chest breathe.
Here, some hot weather necklines to help you stay cool.
1. Heat Wave Casual
Remember that week we had over 100 degrees (40+ Celsius)? I was wearing something like this.
Loose, flowy, 100 % linen open-neck henley + unlined cotton shorts. It doesn’t get much cooler – feeling close to naked.
As you know, I believe that man looks best in a fitted, tailored silhouette – in my opinion it’s the most flattering for the male physique. However, in hot climates, looser, flowy-er clothing can look more appropriate (which is a criteria for looking “stylish”).
Bonus Tip: This type of easy throw-over is also perfect for a beach vacation.
Bonus Tip II: These 100% organic wooden shades stay cool on the skin, don’t stick to moisture, and float in the ocean!
Bonus Tip III: If you’re going to show this much skin, make sure your body is ready. A gym-prepared physique, some light man-grooming and a tan will help pull this look off. (Without the tan is okay too I guess…I probably should have shot this after the beach getaway).
