SUMMER FABRICS TO WEAR THIS SUMMER

IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT COOL

When the thermometer hits 28° you know that things are getting serious, when it hits 30° then things ARE serious. But when 32° comes, there no wind and your skin is getting eaten by the sun, then things are MOST DEFINITELY serious. And today I want to share a secret with you. A secret that will help you survive this period and cope with the burning sun. This secret is simple, surviving the heat boils down to one thing: what you are wear. So today I am giving you 6 summer fabrics you can wear, which will help you out. Check them out below!

HERE ⇐

1) WEAR EYELET

I am wondering if the day the person who invented the eyelet style thought about how well it would make people feel during summer?! Because let’s face it, when it’s hot out, super-hot! You just want to stay naked in bed, in a pool, under the shower or put your head inside the fridge. Well! Eyelet styled clothing are here to help, they will keep you ventilated all day long. Plus they are super chic and class. I love a good eyelet piece in white or pink. To put it simply, white is my favorite color for the summer. So anything in white, is a YES PLEASE!

2) WEAR COTTON

Cotton is your go-to fabric. It is soft and breathable. Moreover, it is the easiest things to find clothe made out of this material, as it represents the most used fiber in clothing material.

3) WEAR JERSEY

If cotton is a go-to fabric, then what about Jersey? Jersey is made out of wool and cotton. But also synthetic fibers. This one is used a lot into making T-Shirts, and we say thank you! Because it is usually light-weight and super stretchy, which means more comfort for you and me.

4) WEAR CHAMBRAY

Chambray is like denim but lighter. If you are a denim lover, then this is definitely an alternative which will provide you with the best of both world. On one hand, you get to get to wear something not as heavy as denim. And on the other hand, you still get to have this denim appearance because chambray and denim have the same finish look.

5) WEAR TERRY CLOTH

Breathable and absorbs sweat. Super comfortable and soft. In other words, terry cloth is the bomb. I have a blanket at home made out of terry cloth, and once I put it on my bed, it’s just impossible not to pet it because it is that soft.

6) WEAR LINEN

This has to be the best fabric to wear in summer. If not, on a scale from 1 to 10 of the fabrics that are best to wear in summer, it will rank at 8 or 9. It does at least for me.

It just keeps you sooo cool! Wearing it is heavenly. Though it does have one default, it is super delicate. It will get creased and crushed before you know it. So wear it for the right occasions, or wear it every day if you don’t get crazy when you see a piece of clothing that needs ironing.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

There are two more fabrics which you can wear for hot summer weather, and these are the Indian fabrics Khadi & Chanderi. You probably won’t find them in Switzerland, but you can online or if you happen to travel in India, then I encourage you to get yourself a few clothing pieces made out of these fabrics.

What a wonderful post! I’ve been wearing long sleeved tee’s and umm, long jeans because this summer has been absolutely freezing. Finland the Funland, now it’s supposed to rain the whole next week so so much about that summer!

Hi, a great selection of clothes. I wear cotton base clothes which are lose fitting if it gets hot, which isn’t that often here.

Definitely cotton! It’s always been the most comfortable fabric that truly lets skin “breathe”.

It’s currently 34°C in Serbia, so I find this post very much useful. I usually wear cotton, but would love to buy something made of linen.
P.S. I love love love your dress. I have something similar but in black I bought in HM, but I just can’t wear black during the day.

I can imgine that the linen one would require a lot of ironing. But yes it would be cool. I have heard about eyelet fabric although I am not really familiar with it. I will have to check some out, in the mens wear department of course.
