The Best Summer Fabrics

When you dress to go out this summer, focus on two things; looking cool and keeping cool! Try and dress in the following fabrics that can help control your temperature and keep you comfortable all summer long.

Cotton may not sound like the best choice to keep your body temperature regulated but this natural fabric allows for better air circulation which minimizes fungal breeding which is a prime culprit for rising body temperature.

Linen is the oldest fabric known and has a reputation for coolness and freshness in hot weather. It is versatile, strong and stays away from your skin allowing better airflow over your body. Also, linen is soft and feels cozy and comforting.

Chambray is imitation denim and, even though it looks just like denime, it is a lot lighter and more breathable.

Silk is pretty, fashionable and traditionally very expensive, but it is also a protein just like your skin and hair so it does not soak up water like other fabrics. Since silk is an adaptive material, it reacts to the changing weather, cooling you down when it is warm and allowing you to look chic and classy in the process.
