Can you believe we’re already in the middle of July? It’s quite hard to when we’ve had a total of about 5 days of sunshine this summer.

Luckily for us, that’s all about to change as next week temperatures are set to hit around the 28 degrees mark with little to no rain – hurrah! Well it’s about time we say.

While we’re gagging for some hot weather, it will only take a few minutes for us to go from ‘Isn’t this weather gorgeous’ to ‘I wish it would cool down’ so we’re here to tell you what’s hot and what's not in the dressing department during this next heat wave so you can fully enjoy it…

Breathable fabrics

Wearing the right fabric is key Opt for linen and cotton. There’s plenty of oversized voluminous cotton dresses on the highstreet at the moment like this next frock ensuring you feel cool while still keeping in line with trends.

Light colours

The colour of your clothing is half as important as your fabric but it still helps, lighter colours are the best at resisting heat, stay clear of dark shades such as black and navy.

Shirt, M&Co, £24.99 here.

There’s nothing worse than swollen feet stuffed into a tight shoe so opt for sandals or mules to give your feet some air and of course choose a comfy style like these chunky sandals from New Look.

Sandals, £23.99, New Look here.

Sensible layering

If you’re someone that can’t leave the house without a jacket, make sure you ditch the leather and any tight layering pieces and opt for linen duster coats or oversized blazers – cape over your shoulders to let the breeze get to your arms.

Linen jacket, Lindex, £39.99 here.

A good hat

Investing in a good hat is a must have for the summer, it will keep the sun out of your eyes and most importantly will protect you from getting sunstroke and yes that can happen in the British sun! There's lots of hat styles to choose from but this summer we’re loving straw hats.

Hat, H&M, £12.99 here.
