Spring is in the air, which means summer is right around the corner and you know what that means…yes, sno-balls and swimming of course, but also high temperatures and stifling humidity. If you want to avoid sweating like a Louisiana princess wearing a ball gown in the afternoon sun, it’s time to ditch your wools and woven jerseys and opt instead for more appropriate summer fabrics.
- Focus on natural fibers instead of synthetic ones – they’re lighter, airier, and offer greater breathability.
- Choose lighter hues – lighter colors reflect heat better than darker ones.
- Avoid tight clothes – when picking patterns, choose loose shapes that will allow air to circulate around your body more freely.
Our essential fabrics for summer include:
- 2Double Gauze
- Cotton Lawn
