Should you wear white or black in summer? You’ve heard from almost everyone that you should wear light or white in summer. So is this true? Let’s talk about this with you.
Should You Wear White or Black in Summer?
Should You Wear White or Black in Summer? We are now in April and the heat is slowly starting to make itself felt. Long-sleeved and thick clothes are now replaced by thin and half clothes. So, when choosing our clothes for hot weather, should white or light colors be preferred or black or dark colors?
There is a perception from the past to the present. White should be worn in summer. So why is everyone saying we should wear white? So is this a correct behavior? People say we should wear white in summer. This is because white reflects the incoming light and heat back as it is. What about our body temperature? If a heat cannot enter us from the outside, the heat in our body cannot go out. From a logical point of view, yes, when we wear white, we reflect the lights and heat from the outside, but the heat in our body cannot go out. That’s why our own body heat makes us sweat.
We want to change this perception as follows. In our opinion, wearing black and loose clothes, not white, will keep you cooler in summer. This is because black color absorbs heat and light from outside. But does it just absorb heat from outside? No. It also absorbs the heat from our body. So our body heat is absorbed by our black clothing and stays there. In this way, both the heat coming from the outside and our body heat are kept by our black clothing. If you wear loose and black clothes, you will sweat less and feel less hot.
