How does /fa/ dress in the desert? Fabrics that don't show sweat--or prevent it--do they exist?
Tried googling desert fashion, picture related. Yeah, I'm not fucking wearing that in 120 degree heat.
More "desert fashion" as google describes. Pic related.
Why is this bitch wearing a fucking sweater? And jeans for fucks sake. My ass would be a sweat stain.
Sorry, but I can't dress like a hooker, although I would if the above is the alternative
And there are just no fucking words for this
Srsly /fa/, I need your help. You're my only hope.

That's fine to wear in 120, besides the black sandals and the vest obviously. Light colored fabrics to reflect sunlight, and breathable fabrics to make sure your sweat evaporates. Wearing long-sleeves and pants is actually advised to protect your body from the sun.
>Fabrics that don't show sweat
Not happening. In weather extremes like that you go for function over form. You can look passable in 120 degree heat, but you're not gonna be fashionable.
Honestly, one of the few things you try to do in an extreme environment is "dress fashionably."
Last time some kid did it in my area he had a heat stroke, and wasn't found for a couple years. Same thing happened plenty of times in Russia when people would go out flaunting their new designer jackets in -40C weather and would freeze to death.
Then again, by all means go and dress in Uniqulo and wear your meme shoes, I'd be happy to find another dead body rotting away.
This palate's bout right, also the last of what I got.
u say wat u son of basterd bitch
Some old desert-themed pics from years ago.
Best for last.
The best clothing to wear in hot, dry climate would be loose, made of light, breathable, bright coloured fabric. This is what most desert tribes actually wear.
The sun will heat the top layer only. And when I say heat, I mean that the top layer will be much hotter than air temperature. If it is bright coloured, this means most of the sunlight will be reflected, meaning lower temperature. Of course, skin that is exposed to the sun would heat up as well, that's why it's important to cover yourself in hot sunny weather, counterintuitive as it might sound.
Breathable fabric will mean that air still circulates. Since deserts are dry, sweat should evaporate easily. Loose clothing also means that the heated outer layer of clothing is not in direct contact with the skin, so you don't feel as hot as in tight clothes.
I hope you now also understand why women wearing revealing tight clothing in summer is as retarded as it can get.
I wouldn't say "bright" clothing most tribes utilize indigo and will actually dry pound indigo to creat an almost plum black tone to cloth.
But I do agree about layers, Khoisan in Botswana even the most traditional ones will wear extremely large used shirts to help cool themselves even though its bad for tourism business advertising "authentic tribals"
This is mostly correct, but I disagree with the "mostly bright clothing" esp in deserts with any significant wind
here's a worthwhile article to read
>only one mention of "Tuareg"
What are you doing?
