Woven cotton clothes, not knitted. I.e blouse, shirt, top, not T shirts/jersey tops. Looks cool, feels cool. Def simple shapes, not too many layers, nothing too tight either, IMO.

But I am simplicity too - knee length flippy beige linen skirt (I could write for Boden), plain turquoisey V-neck T-shirt, silver and turquoise necklace - I am the epitome of simplicity. But I don't look cool, I look sweaty and hot and frizzy and shiny and the heat brings me out in zits.

brown feet, flip flops, painted nails.

loose clothes unless you are very toned.

skimpy bikini, hair tousled or scraped back, sarong, havaianas, great bod. 'Tis the only way.

I saw a few people who looked great today at sainsburys. I was very jealous because until I saw them I thought I looked nice in my sundress but they looked so effortless, turned up shorts and vest/sleeveless tops, not too tight and then just flip flops.

Have to just add that if I wore the same shorts etc outfit I would probably look dreadful so maybe it was partly size envy.

I was bf in summer 2003 too Cod and know exactly what you mean. I took dd to the park in her pram but forgot money to buy myself some water. I got home and felt rough and woke up in the middle of the night puking with heatstroke.

SilentTerror Sun 27-Jul-08 21:19:08

Agree Cod,white linen trousers,vest,sandals/flipflops.
Twas pretty much me today,when out and aboutgrin
In privacy of garden though was bursting out of too small bikini top,red faced and covered in heat rash.

I like white linen trousers but they seem to emphasize my pear shaped-ness if I wear them with a vest top. Except one that I've got that is sort of fitted but loose. I wear it all the time I want more but haven't seen any this year.

Sorry Harpo .. am from Sydney, that's pretty much standard supermarket wear for us lot.

Agree it prob wouldn't go down so well in my 'hood, south east london an' all that innit.

ribbed vest tops best
hide lots

Do what they do in Saudi....light weight thin black abayas - but you can be practically nekkid underneath...think g strings and lacey bras! wink

Puss. That reminds me, why black not white? would white not be cooler?

Well, there is nothing that says white cannot be worn but for cultural (not Islamic I must stress!) reasons, the women wear black as it hides more - they are too extreme there though!! Must admit, the thought of hiding my post baby pouch under a flowing, slimming abaya is quite appealing....
