During the hottest months of the year, keep everything light! This means your makeup, hair, and clothes. Wear as little clothing as you can, but always bring a light cardigan just in case because the AC blasting non-stop can seriously make you a bit cold. Also, opt for lighter fabrics that won't cling to your skin when it's hot out. Clothing made from linen is amazing during the summer, as well as silk and cotton since they are lighter and cooler. Stay away from heavier clothing that's made from suede, leather or anything that's tight since they'll make you hotter.
