For days when you cannot fathom putting any form of material on your body, getting dressed can become quite miserable. The palpable heat of a tropical summer’s day can keep you indoors sweating in front of a fan as it starts to give off a warm breeze. The humidity has set in before you even left your apartment. Summer in the city is harsh but it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a day out.
It’s Sunday, and that being said, minimum effort is required before leaving the house. So here’s what I threw on to keep me feeling extra breezy, zero effort required!
A simple white t-shirt keeps you comfortable in soaring temperatures and they don’t require much thought. I’ve a tied a little knot on the side to lose the boxy effect as this jersy skirt doesn’t allow much to be tucked in without peeping through.
Opt for a loose skirt instead of a pair of denim jeans as they litirelly float around you as you move. The less the material touches your skin, the better. This black high waisted skirt has a slimming effect and I love its soft effortless fabric that feels weightless as I’m wearing it. It also means that I can wear black in summer and I am all about that!
Trying to look put together without much make-up? A bold lip and black sunnies seem to work just fine. Not your typical summer makeup but honestly, who cares? My love for a dark lip goes beyond any season. I’ve gone for my trusty Mac lip liner in nightmoth basically just scribbled on my lips with a bit of the liptensity in the shade dinonysus, to add a bit of moisture. And voilá! I’m off to find a new coffee spot in Seoul.
