LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Staying Cool in Rio

Let's Hear it for the Boys

January is the one of the hottest months of the year in the “Marvelous City,” as Rio de Janeiro is popular and traditionally referred to. One of the greatest challenges during this time of the year is dressing lightly while keeping an interesting look. It is also very important to protect yourself from the extremely hot rays of the sun.

The best color option during this weather is white, as it keeps you light even during the extreme temperatures. This Fashionisto chose an all-white ensemble, which means all-day comfort. His look is basic: a fun, graphic T-shirt with a V-neck to change it up from the usual, which can be found in great variety in stores like C&A and Taco. He adds neutral shorts and white low-rise Converse, items that are also quite easy to find year-round and keep him refreshed.

The greatest touch in his outfit, in my opinion, is his fedora-style hat and sunglasses. This Fashionisto proves you can protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun without compromising an elegant and fashionable outfit. A simple, one color outfit does not mean boring: as this Fashionisto proves it, this color can still be considered “white-hot!”

Hint: Hats and sunglasses are a great way to protect yourself from the sun, but, they only help if they have UV protection factors. When buying either, check the tags or ask a salesperson about the protection they offer. Ray-Bans are one popular brand of sunglasses that offer protection and style. For hats with UV protection, check out online stores, such as the SPF Store.
