FPE WEATHER AND FASHIONISTA
Good day to all noble student of Federal Polytechnic Ede !
It is no news that the Sun has decided to be harsh ouch, ouch… it’s so scorching you feel! surviving in this weather would be hard unless you wear the appropriate outfit.
So, by popular demand and the fierce unmercifully pinching sun, this is the ways I have posited to dress in this weather.
AVOID DARK COLOURS:
Please, for the love of comfort, stick to light colours. You should keep your black clothes far away from you this weather. Black clothes absorb heat, it would cause the weather to be more unbearable than it already used to do.
WEAR CLOTHES MADE FROM COTTON AND LINEN:
These materials are very breathable, that even in hot weather, one doesn’t sweat in them. So… in this weather, clothes made from cotton should be in your wardrobe.
AVOID CLOTHES MADE FROM NYLON, RAYON, WOOL, SILK AND POLYESTER:
Unlike the first set of fabrics, These ones are not breathable and cause one to sweat. Wearing outfits made from these fabrics in this weather would cause make you uncomfortable and smelly because they retain sweat. These fabrics may look nice, but they are not for this weather.
AVOID SKIN TIGHT CLOTHES:
As much as you always want to hot in skin tight outfits, in this weather, your result would be to look sweaty and very uncomfortable. I would advise you wear loose dresses to breathe well and let air flow well.
CROPPED TOPS AND SKIRTS: Ladies, this weather is perfect for you to rock that cropped top, they don’t hug your torso so air would happily wrap around you. Plus they are very fashionable.
For the love of comfort, wear skirts over trousers in this weather. They do not cover the legs so it reduces the generation of heat. But if you must wear trousers, wear those made out of linen and cotton.
WEAR JERSEY AND SHORTS:
Nope, I didn’t forget the guys. Guys should opt for jerseys over shirt and shorts over trousers. After all comfort is survival. Guys, I am your momma too, you good?
WEAR SHORT SLEEVES AND SLEEVELESS CLOTHES:
Clothes that allow breathing is the best for this weather and short sleeves or sleeveless are very breathable.
DO NOT WEAR JACKETS, SCARFS OR MUFFLERS:
Jackets?!!! In this weather?! Uh?! Ah! Please, avoid these to live longer.
FACE CAPS, HATS AND SUNGLASSES:
These are the best accessories for hot weather. They protect the face from the rays of sun.
WEAR SCANDALS AND COMFORTABLE SHOES:
Avoid rubber or leather shoes these weather. Opt for scandals or palm slippers. Luckily, they are fashionable too.
Very important for this weather. It protects the skin against UV rays, also against the risk of skin cancer.
If you follow these, this weather may not be much of a problem. Fashion is survival, survival can be fashioned and my job is to make sure you survive this weather and still slay!
Wish you FPE Students a successful days on campus….
