This week, Fashion Magazine asked their style panel how to wear silk during the hot summer months. Silk, while it’s very breathable, also allows for sweat to leave some embarrassing pit-stains ūüôĀ ¬†which could be problematic on hot days. But, with help from a good antiperspirant (I love this one from Dove) I spend my summers sweat-free in luxurious silks! Here is how I told Fashion to style them.

This dress is clearly one of my favourites, seen here and here in each Spring/Summer season.

The only way I can get through my weekly tasks after a long work week is by dressing up and making things like groceries and dry cleaning seem more glamourous. It may seem silly, to wear your heels to a like picking up fresh produce, but by making this activity seem more special you may find a new sense of enjoyment in it.

It must be the weather,¬†the reason that I’ve been in a daze for the last week or so. Toronto hasn’t felt this nice in so long, and everyone should be taking advantage of the Vitamin D. Dressing for early summer involves planning for the potential of extreme heat, with breezes and the potential dropping of temperature come sundown. I tend to gravitate towards breathable fabrics like silk, that are ideal for absorbing any sweat during the day while being light weight and easy to be worn¬†layered under a sweater¬†for the evening.
