    20 Products For Anyone Who's Too Hot Outside But Also Too Cold Inside

    I can't be the only one who wears a sweater inside when it's 90 degrees outside.

    1. A Hydro Flask tumbler made out of stainless-steel so you can keep your hot drinks hot (for up to six hours) while you're inside and your cold drinks cold (for up to 24 hours) while you're outside.

    Three models each holding a tumbler (two in green and one in grey) while sitting outside

    Promising review: "This is a great cup. It keeps my coffee hot and my cold drinks super cold. It keeps them hot for about 6 hours and keeps ice in my drink throughout my 10-hour work shifts." —Amazonian

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95 (available in three sizes and 15 colors).

    2. And a HyperChiller that can turn the rest of the hot pot of coffee you enjoyed into iced coffee to take with you in a minute *without* watering it down.

    Plus, it can chill other beverages, such as wine! All you have to do is fill it with water and put it in the freezer. Then, when you're ready to use it, simply pour the hot beverage inside and then into your cup.

    Promising review: "I Love love LOVE this. I can pour my boiling hot water into my HyperChiller and a minute later, it's ice cold. If I want a larger cup of coffee, I can use the HyperChiller twice and still get cold coffee. I haven't tried anything besides coffee. It's easy to clean and easy to reuse." —Ally

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    3. A long-sleeved blouse specifically designed with fabric that'll breathe and keep you cool outside but also covered and comfortable while you're in the house. And bonus: it'll look great during your big Zoom meeting, even if you're wearing pajama bottoms with it!

    Get it from Aday for $160 (available in sizes XS-XL and in olive and white).

    4. A pair of faux-fur sandal slippers with an open toe to keep your feet warm but also make sure they don't start sweating the second you run out to get the mail.

    Promising review: "These slippers are just what I was looking for summertime! The best part about them is that they have a hard bottom, so I can run outside to take out the trash or get the mail in them! I’m usually a size 6 in shoes, and I got the medium size because many of the reviews said they run small. They fit perfectly!" —Savannah Heigl

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in women's sizes S-XL and in six colors).

    5. A Buffy comforter that's temperature regulating, so you can cuddle up and stay cozy and warm with no fear of overheating in the middle of the night.

    Promising review: "I'm always cold and my husband is hot so we never agree on comforters. We both LOVE this one and have been sleeping great with no waking up at night being hot or cold. I was skeptical because of the cost, but 100% worth it! Planning to try the sheets too." —Julia W.

    Get it from Buffy for $179+ (available in twin/twin XL, full/queen, and king/Cal king).

    6. A matching sweatshirt and gym shorts set you may find yourself living in all day and then conveniently putting on the coordinating tank when you need to go venture out into the world.

    Model wearing the cropped sweatshirt and elastic shorts with pockets in mustard

    Get it from Aerie: $31.46 (for the sweatshirt; originally $44.95; available in women's sizes XXS-XXL and in five colors), $29.95 (for the shorts; available in women's sizes XXS-XXL and in six colors), and $24.95 (for the tank; available in women's sizes XXS-XXL and in six colors).

    7. Moisture-wicking socks that'll keep your toes from basically freezing inside but also prevent your shoes from turning into a swamp on your evening run.

    Promising review: "Seem great. I’ve worn them several times for running and for sports and the fact that I put them on and forget about them tells me there aren’t any problems with them. Also, I sweat a lot and these seem to do just as well as any other sock I’ve used in the moisture-wicking department. Happy with this purchase!" —Kindle Customer

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three sizes and 11 color variations).

    8. A heating/cooling seat cushion with a home adapter so you can keep it in your car to cool you down and then move it inside to warm you up.


    The cushion has three levels of cooling and two levels of heating. It fits into 12- and 24-voltage cars but also comes with a home adapter.

    Promising review: "I originally got this for my car because I have black leather in a city that reaches up to 110 degrees, and it was necessary. However, I wanted to see how it works so I put it on my office chair. It was a game-changer. My back is always cooled off, and I can sit there for a longer period of time. I will be buying another one for the car." —Brandon

    Get it from Amazon for $48.96.

    9. Lightweight joggers perfect for keeping you covered while at home yet made from cotton so your legs won't sweat if/when you head out to run errands.

    Reviewer wearing the black joggers with elastic waist and side pockets in black

    Promising review: "I love everything about these cuffed-at-the-ankle pants. I don’t worry about the ankle cuffs getting entangled in exercise equipment. The fabric is very lightweight and cool, unlike other heavy, bulky sweatpants. These pants are also very stretchy and do not bind during a workout. They're so comfortable and attractive that they are also great for wearing when running errands and attending community events. I'm so glad I picked up three pairs of these." —Caroline1

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99 (available in women's sizes XS–5XL and 22 colors).

    10. A rechargeable handheld fan to keep on ~hand~ for those days when it's unbearably hot and you need a nice fan to cool you down at all times. It's your own personal AC ready to go at a moment's notice.

    The handle folds up for easy carrying, and the fan has three speed settings.

    Promising review: "It's very useful and portable anywhere at any time. The battery is good and the air is cool. It is very handy and lightweight. I love it. Summer days and nights have become so easy now. Plus, it comes with a charger!" —Sammi

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five colors).

    11. An embroidered sweatshirt perfect to wear every single day while you work so you don't freeze and also remind your coworkers to always read your emails.

    Get it from Phenomenal Woman for $59 (available in women's sizes S-3X).

    12. Lavender-scented hypoallergenic wipes made with tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng to wipe away any sweat after being outside so you're more comfortable inside when a shower just isn't an option.

    Goodwipes / Via

    Promising review: "I love to walk/jog in the summer, but I always feel so sweaty and nasty. If I go out a few times a day, it gets annoying to shower multiple times, knowing I'm just going to get sweaty again a few hours later. These are a wonderful option for the in-between times. The scent is very fresh. It's just what you'd imagine a combination of lavender, peppermint, and tea tree oil to smell like. I freshen up with these and feel so much better. They're cool and refreshing." —BarbN Lesniak

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $9.99.

    13. A portable fan and heater combo with two heat settings, one fan-only setting, and a handle so you can move it around with you and ensure you're always just the right temperature.

    The portable fan heater in white and grey

    Promising review: "This space heater works! It heats up an entire room in an apartment in just a few minutes. I also like that it can be used as a fan." —Rebecca O.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95 (available in white, orange, and blue).

    14. A sweat-proof T-shirt made with pads in the underarm to absorb sweat, prevent sweat stains, and just make the day more bearable, no matter what you do.


    Promising review: "This is a must-buy. I work in Miami, and the summers are hot. I work in a restaurant with outdoor seating so you sweat. With this undershirt, nothing shows through. It’s absolutely amazing." —Luciana Rankins

    Get it from Amazon for $28.49 (available in women's sizes XS-XXL and in black, white, and beige).

    15. A track jacket that's lightweight, adds an extra layer, and is also super easy to tie around your waist when you get too warm.

    Girlfriend Collective

    This track jacket is basically the only jacket I've been wearing this summer. It is lightweight, but it keeps me comfortable when I'm working from home all day long. Plus, if I wear it outside, and I overheat, I usually just tie it around my waist. But it also could easily be packed into a small bag. The color is also ah-mazing, and I love that it's sustainable and made from recycled materials. It gets an A+ in my book.

    Get it from Girlfriend Collective for $128 (available in women's sizes XXS-6X and in four colors).

    16. A lavender-scented aromatherapy pad filled with natural grains you can either put in the microwave for some warmth around your neck or put in the freezer to use as a cold compress.

    Model wearing the purple rectangular pad around their neck

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome. I heat it in the microwave when I have muscle pain and freeze it to help with my migraines." —kellie coundiff

    Get it from Amazon for $11.39 (available in purple, blue, and red).

    17. A jumpsuit and bodysuit bundle that's basically two outfits in one, because you can wear it with or without the bodysuit, so it's super versatile.

    Two models wearing the bodysuit in white and one wearing the jumpsuit in navy blue and the other in green

    Get it from Summersalt for $130 (bodysuit is available in women's sizes XS-2X in five colors and the jumpsuit is available in women's sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    18. A set of headbands to soak up any sweat and stop it from getting in your eyes and elsewhere. You'll feel instant relief.,

    Promising review: "Amazing quality! These are super soft and keep your head cool when working out! I couldn’t believe how well they work at wicking away moisture and staying cool! They came in a super nice box that will help me to not lose them — like I’m prone to. The colors are cute and the headbands aren’t too tight at all! They have nice stretch to them if you have a larger head. This is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made on Amazon! I’m so glad I bought these!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of ten from Amazon for $16.14 (available in two styles).

    19. A throw blanket you can ~throw~ over your lap when you get a bit chilled and then also use to sit on under a shaded tree while you enjoy a picnic.

    A blue, orange, and yellow blanket with white fringe on the ends handing from a door

    Promising review: "This is a very nice and lightweight blanket for summertime." —Rachel Kozin

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in 10 colors).

    20. And an Embr wave bracelet worth the splurge because it's basically magic and will either heat up or cool down your body temperature with the touch of a button.

    The Embr Wave cools or warms the inside of your wrist to change your body temperature. All you have to do is press the blue side for cooling and the red side for warmth.

    Promising review: "This Embr Wave is truly sent from above! I no longer look like a dog stranded in the rain 10 times a day. I just push a button and feel relief. And I can sleep without waking and having to change my sheets and pillowcase. Sometimes I’m hot and sometimes I’m freezing when I sleep, this Ember Wave fixes both quickly! I have already recommended to family members and my hairdresser! I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. And it’s attractive too!" —Dian M.

    Get it from Embr for $299 (available in pink and white).
