As the weather heats up, we are all looking for ways to cool down. We love summer, and we all want to be comfortable during the longest days of the year. We can wear fewer layers or shorter sleeves, but what fabrics we choose can be crucial to staying comfortable.
Some fabrics are far more ideal than others. Polyester traps moisture, making it a don’t for hot weather. Linen, on the other hand, is cool to the touch. It also removes moisture fast, keeping you looking and feeling fresh.
We should always feel comfortable and confident in our clothes. But while we want comfort, we also want to look amazing! It is possible to have both style and comfort while keeping cool this summer.
Here are some of our stylist picks, made with summer-friendly fabrics, that you can wear over and over again.
Cotton is a natural fabric perfect for all seasons, which is why it’s a go to option. The fiber allows air to circulate easily keeping you cool and comfortable.
A basic cotton tee is a wardrobe staple must have. This versatile jewel neck tee from Eileen Fisher comes in a variety of solid colors. Throw one on for a pop of color with your everyday blue jeans.
Chambray is a type of cotton that often comes in a higher thread count and finer weave. It also comes in gorgeous blues ready for summer style.
