Fabrics to keep you cool this Summer

Are you ready for the summer? Heat is on its way, so it’s time to share some of the best fabrics to wear this season. Trust me, wearing the right fabric will make a huge difference in reducing the heat this summer.

Temperatures will rise and, unfortunately, we can’t all be in a bikini at the beach 24 hours a day. Summer dressing is all about ease, but picking the right fabric to keep you cool isn’t always easy. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of light, airy, and comfortable fabrics to wear in the heat.

  • Cotton: The most common natural fiber fabric in everyone’s life and it’s the best fabric to keep your summers cool. This material actually absorbs all the moisture and helps in evaporating it. It is also known to be one of the most easy going and airy fabrics ever, which means you will be left feeling refreshed and comfortable (AND sweat free) during the day.

  • Linen: Also known for its sweat absorbing quality, linen keeps you dry. The biggest fashion brands like Donna Karan, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and many more are realizing the value and have noticed its popularity. They have even produced collections of linen tailored suits. Presented, cut, and made in different styles for both men and women is a oh-so-hot (and cool) fabric to be in your wardrobe for the summer.

  • Madras: A light fabric from the very known city of India, Chennai. Madras (known as Chennai) is a fabric that allows circulation and breathing. An Indian fabric with modernized Scottish tartans, which is blended with their own checks and colors. Once the garment is ready, you have your own choice of jackets, shirts, and shorts in airy material with a deck of checks and hues.
