When it is cold outside, parents inform their children that they should "bundle up" to dress properly for the cold. What is the warm-weather analogue to this phrase, that would be used to inform their children that they should dress properly for the heat?


You could say

It's going to be hot. Wear loose, light clothing to stay cool | avoid sunstroke.

There's nothing similar to the phrasal "bundle up" except perhaps strip down but that phrase is often used with taking everything off or everything but underclothing off, so it might be misunderstood.

Here’s the thing — dog’s have fur coats. They wear them all the time. They can’t strip down in the heat.
