As the last days of November slip away and December looms on the horizon, let’s explore some fashion tips to keep in mind as we embrace the scent of this harmattan/winter season.

Protective Clothing:

The harmattan season in regions like West Africa brings dry and dusty winds, cooler temperatures, and low humidity.

Opt for clothing that provides coverage to shield your skin from the dry winds and dust. Light long-sleeved tops, maxi dresses, and breathable fabrics like cotton or linen can protect while keeping you cool.

Hydration is Key

Stay hydrated not only by drinking water but also by choosing fabrics that retain moisture. Fabrics like silk or satin can help your skin stay hydrated and prevent excessive dryness.

Layer Lightly

  • Harmmattan – Asthma patients cautioned to limit exposure to dust
  • NiMet D-G explains causes of harmattan fluctuation

While temperatures may drop slightly during harmattan, layering lightly is key. Consider a light cardigan or a scarf that you can easily remove as the day warms up. This allows you to adapt to changing temperatures.

Protect Your Eyes:

Harmattan dust can affect visibility, so sunglasses are not just a fashion accessory but also provide protection. Invest in a good pair that shields your eyes from both the sun and the dust.

 Lip Balm and Moisturizer

Dry winds can lead to chapped lips and dry skin. Carry a good lip balm and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Opt for products with Sun Protection Factor(SPF) to protect against the sun’s rays.

 Comfortable Footwear

Closed shoes or sandals can protect your feet from dust and debris. Choose comfortable and sturdy footwear to navigate through dusty streets comfortably.

 Bright Accessories

Add pops of color to your outfits with vibrant accessories. Bold and colorful wears, or statement jewelry can brighten up your look amidst the muted tones of the harmattan season.
