(SPOT.ph) Living in a tropical country is all fun and games until the heat index reaches 55 degrees Celsius—but that doesn’t mean you have to bid goodbye to looking fashionable. All you have to do is find clothes that come in breathable fabric that won’t stick to your skin even when it’s hot and humid. Case in point: Linen fashion pieces. Linen is naturally soft and cool, allowing your skin to breathe under the scorching heat.
