How To Keep Cool In The Summer Heatwave As A Bigger Guy

15/07/2022

back to blog

The sun is finally here and this week the UK is set for one of the hottest heatwaves we’ve ever seen.

If you’re looking for ways to keep cool in this summer heat, have no fear because BadRhino is here! From oversized fits to cool sliders and light layers, we’ve got your heatwave style covered with some of the hottest tips to make sure you’re keeping cool this season.

1. Opt For Lightweight Vests Or Oversized Fits

When the weather is hot and sticky, there’s only one rule when it comes to clothes; don’t wear anything that’s cut too close to the body.

To help alleviate some of the heat that you might be feeling, lightweight vests and oversized t-shirts will be your go-to.

2. Warm Nights Call For Shorts Pyjama Sets

Let’s be honest, there’s nothing worse than being too hot when you’re trying to sleep. That’s why a shorts pyjama set is an essential that you need this summer season. Made from breathable and comfortable cotton fabric, you’re sure to fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow!

3.. Head To The Pool For A Cooldown

Whether you’re heading to your local leisure centre or taking a dip in the kids’ paddling pool, jumping into the water can really help cool you down when the warmer weather hits.

Invest in a pair of trusty swimming shorts that are designed in wider cuts with flattering fits to help you cool off with confidence. We’ve got everything from block colours to on-trend prints so you’re sure to find a style you love.

4. Be Light With Your Layers

Just because it’s a summer heatwave, doesn’t mean that you have to default to a t-shirt every day.

Instead, go light with your layers and add a short-sleeve shirt into the mix. Go for bold and colourful designs worn over a white tee for a must-have summer look. Leaving your shirt open allows for better airflow into your outfit without having to compromise on that all-important shape and structure.

5. Leverage The Power Of Performance Fabrics

Designed with absorbing sweat in mind, performance fabrics can actually be super helpful when the heatwave hits.

These days, lots of activewear now has moisture-wicking and cooling technologies in the fabrics that can be a saviour for bigger guys in hotter weather. From shorts, leggings, t-shirts and more, you’ll be ready to take any level of warmth.

6. Keep Cool With Sliders

Whether you’re lounging around or heading out to soak up the sun, when it’s warm you don’t want to be wearing trainers or boots.

To help avoid getting sweaty feet, keep it cool and air them out with a pair of sliders or flip-flops for maximum comfort and style.

7. Opt For A Cap

If you’re looking for a cool accessory (literally), then it’s time to invest in a trusty cap. Great for the summer rays, caps work by providing relief from the sun and protecting your head from direct exposure.

Baseball caps are made from lightweight, breathable material and typically have holes sewn into the top for extra ventilation. Plus, they go great with any outfit — win, win!
