Summer is coming! It’s going to get hot. Summer concealed carry fashion tends to be more difficult as the days get warmer and the clothes get smaller. As you change into your summer wardrobe, things like sweaters and jackets won’t be helpful anymore. Simply become strategic in the clothes that you wear. But you might be thinking that looking for clothes specifically for concealed carry might be silly. You might also think that the clothes that will help you to conceal will cramp your style… this is not the case! Read these tips and I promise you will find it easier to carry this summer.
Work the Patterns
The hardest part about concealed carry in the summer is trying to hide your gun behind a tank or light t-shirt. Some women can do this easily depending on their shape, size and style but you can do this too! All you need to do is look for shirts with patterns. A busy pattern can be a distraction from any printing that you might notice with a solid shirt. If you are more inclined to wear a fitted shirt, a pattern will make all the difference. Here are some great options I found on Amazon.

Go with the Flow
Not a pattern lover? That’s ok! You don’t need to wear a patterned shirt everyday to conceal carry effectively in the summer. Look for shirts that are flowy and loose, you can hide almost anything! Extra fabric can hide your gun. This does not mean that you will overheat. The extra, flowing fabric at the bottom of your blouse can actually help keep you cool during the summer months.
