- Waterproof jackets should be a part of your attire when you go hiking. Check out how it fits and ensure that it offers comfort before you buy it.
- If it is a sunny day, take good-quality sunglasses.
- Ensure that you have good-quality socks to protect against insect bites and poison ivy. Also, you can consider wearing two socks if it is cold.

Dressing up for a summer event
If you have an event to attend outdoors in summers, like a barbeque, picnic, or boating, here’s how you can dress to look good and be comfortable in the sweltering heat:
