These heat-proof pieces are your next wardrobe staples.

Living in a tropical country, it’s both a blessing and a curse to have summer weather all year round. For beach babes out there, a trip to the beach is just one decision away anytime! This means we don’t have to rotate our clothing along with the season. We can rock a hubadera outfit whenever we please, though the only caveat is the blistering heat!

It gets especially stifling during our peak summer seasons so dressing for the heat is vital. A hot spell is the perfect opportunity for cute skin-baring ‘fits that’ll help you cool down, whether you’re at the beach or in the city. If you’re a summer gal looking to beat the heat, these celebs and influencers will show you just the closet essentials you need to cop, stat.

A classic wardrobe staple everyone should have for summer is a halter crop top! Here, Nadine Lustre sports a white one with faint seersucker texture for a little bit of flair. It’s such a simple yet effective piece for a no-brainer outfit that you can wear on casual days at home.
