Heat wave: does white protect against the heat?
The most seasoned fashionistas already have the answer: white is THE most breathable color par excellence. This is the reason why it is so popular and worn in the summer. Here, you don’t need a master’s degree in science to understand why. Lighter in comparison to all other colors, white tends to reflect the sun’s rays. That is to say, it will repel the rays, and therefore prevent the body from suffocating under clothing. Unlike black and dark palettes which, in turn, will absorb the sun’s rays without reflecting them, and smother the body. Then make way for perspiration, and other unpleasant sensations that result from it, especially during heat waves. Attention: a white garment remains a garment. If it is less absorbent than a black garment, it can become so when exposed to too much sunlight. Here, then, the idea is to move towards the fluid and light materialslike linen, ultra-fine knit and soft cotton.
Temperatures Rising: The Best White Tops For Staying Cool
Dressing up is an art. Especially when the thermometer shows scorching pre-summer temperatures. Before leaving home, many fashionistas take a long time to find an outfit suitable for the glorious weather. To ensure a style at the height of chic, of course, but above all to don’t sweat and feeling smothered in layers of cloth. The idea here is therefore to favor white, and to decline it in all possible and imaginable tops. At the house of Mangothe spring-summer 2022 collections have enough to give us the best ideas for dressing without suffering.
Premium oversized cotton T-shirt
We obviously like the basic of a White cotton t-shirt. Inseparable from the legendary style of Jane Birkin, the white T-shirt allows the body to easily regulate its temperatures in the summer, and boosts the fashion quotient when worn with well-cut light jeans. Same thing for the white tank top, which we can choose cropped or stacked to our size, and which we wear alone or under a linen shirt. Our favorite ? The absolute romanticism of Mango ruffled cotton blouse. As if taken from the cottagecore trend (or Bridgerton, it depends), this ultra light oversized ruffled blouse ensures a silhouette in tune with the times…And will play with the wind effortlessly to keep you cool.
Ruffled cotton blouse
Heat: the most beautiful white dresses and jumpsuits?
When it is (very) hot, we tend to avoid clothes that cover the silhouette too much. Gone are the tight pants, the skinny and cuts that are too narrow: make way for the sartorial freedom found in wider cuts. Big trend of the season, we love the side soft girl (wise girl) of the white dress embroidered in Mango cotton. Delicately marked at the waist, it will lengthen the legs of all morphologies while leaving the body in the open air, in particular thanks to its many openings at the level of the embroideries. An elegant piece with decorative details, cut for the hot months to come.
Cotton embroidered dress
Equally aerial, the white dress with openwork details available on the Spanish ready-to-wear brand’s website. What makes it an essential dress to curl up in this summer? Its short sleeves, its light fabric, its notched collar, the midi cut, its Swiss embroidery… In short, the whole package to feel beautiful and good. For a bombshell look, wear it with the shoe trend of the season: clogs for the most daring, or flat mules for the more classic. Another piece just as effective as the dress to stay in the shade: the white jumpsuit. Our ultimate advice: choose them long and flared, open in the back and made in as fluid a fabric as possible. An ideal garment to harmonize chic with casual, and to fight against high heat. The must ? It can be worn everywhere: in the office, by the sea, and even during a ceremony.
