Based on my limited experience of being in not quite deserts but in landscapes that seem to be microcosms of them, I decided that dressing in absolute white with slight variations in tone is the only acceptable option there. Anything that freely floats with the subtlest of winds is a match for combating oppressive heat levels while contributing some ethereal effect. I can get used to overlapping highly concentrated whisper sheer lace with the right amount of ruching on a jacket where they are least expected. Something not to get used to, however, is wearing perforated footwear on surfaces that are like the shallow sandboxes they're not.
