Obviously, most people don’t wear sweaters or scarves on a hot day. But picking heat-tolerant clothes goes further than a tank top and shorts. You’ll want to pinpoint breathable fabrics: cotton, linen, block, and rayon.

Light fabrics prevent sweat from sticking to your body. Sweat lowers body temperature when it evaporates, but it only vaporizes in an environment with little water. The less sweat under your clothes, the more refreshed you’ll feel. If you don’t know your clothing’s fabric, opt for baggy shirts or gym outfits. Most workout clothes are designed to ventilate moisture and keep you dry.
