TextWith the summer heat already doing its waves around the city, the dreaded daily commute just became sweatier than ever! Keep your heads and yourselves cool and read up on our twelve best tips to beat the commute rush!

Skip the tight clothes.

The last thing you want to worry about while commuting is your outfit. Go for light and comfy pieces and say goodbye to thick and tight clothes.

For the girls: opt for shorts, dresses, or skirts

Whether you’re cramped in a bus or a train, a dress or a skirt is always a good idea. Just be sure to wear it at a length you’re comfortable with and you’re good to go!

Win in sleeveless tops!

Wear your trustworthy sleeveless tops with your light jeans or shorts! Whatever you pair with it, your tops help a lot in the battle with the commute heat!

Take a cap with you

Caps are our MVPs for commutes. It keeps your hair from getting all over the place. Plus, it keeps the sun out of your face, too! It’s a win-win scenario.

Pack lightly

You know the drill. Bring only your must-haves with you (i.e. wallet, phone, hat, and your other essentials!) Place everything in a one bag if you can. Pro-tip: belt bags are great if you have a lot of stuff you wanna keep with you!

Keep your belongings close to you.

Be wary of the dangers of public transpo! Commuters know this by heart and that is to keep your belongings tight with you. Lounge around a trusty fanny pack to avoid lost or stolen items!

Go back to basics

Given the option, dress simply. A good pair of pants won’t make you worry about being too casual wherever you’re going. If in doubt, a basic tee and a pair of EasyWear pants will always do the trick. It’s always a good idea to invest in the perfect pair that feels absolutely light and comfortable!


Bring your favorite scent with you.

Stay fresh and keep a handy cologne or perfume with you at all costs! It’s the easiest way to keep on being fresh after a long commute.

Pack an extra shirt

If you’ve been commuting for a while you know the whole thing can be notoriously unpredictable. If you’re on the way to something (or to meet someone) important, be sure to pack an extra one with you!

Don’t be afraid to layer.

Dressing comfortably doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish. Add on accessories or throw in a cardigan. You don’t have to sacrifice looking your best just because you’re going on a commute today.

Plan your outfits ahead

You know where you’re going best so make sure to brush up on your closet options and check what works best for you! If you’ll be going to a crowded spot, consider EasyCare shirts, or consider wearing your best walking shoes to the commute. After all, it never hurts to be 100% prepared.

What’s a foolproof commute-ready outfit you swear by?
