BEST FABRICS TO WEAR IN THE SUMMER!

Hello everyone,


One thing is for sure - we can't escape the heat or skip summer, but we can choose to wear more breathable fabrics. Fabrics, which not only make it easier to adjust to each season, but also bring variety when it comes to dressing up. Having pieces in different textures, shades and textiles bring a new unique look to your style. That's why fashion is always so exciting and can be expressed in numerous ways!

When shopping online imagine typing in the search bar...beautiful dress. That really isn't specific and probably endless options will show up, which aren't exactly what you're looking for. Now, imagine typing in a red silk-satin dress. This will not only give you exactly that, but shows just how important fabrics are and why it helps to know and be able to identify them.

You may already know there are 5 natural fibers (they come from nature as opposed to being chemically produced). They include cotton, silk, wool, hemp and linen. Sometimes these natural fibers are used alone, but most often are blended with one of these 5 manmade fibers (polyester, rayon, acrylic, nylon and acetate.) Next time you purchase a new clothing item, you'll be able to tell by the tag exactly what fibers have been mixed to create this piece of clothing. It's so nice knowing what you put on your body just as much as we take into consideration what we feed our bodies. 


So why are fabrics so significant?

Having the knowledge of all the different blends is an advantage when going shopping. For example, having a garment made out of cotton and polyester may not need much ironing since the blend of polyester helps make it wrinkle resistant while cotton used alone in clothing wrinkles very easily. 
Also, in many activewear you might have noticed the combination of spandex and cotton. They're great for this type of clothing because cotton lets the skin breathe while the spandex provides stretch and durability. 

Now let's dive deep into the BEST fabrics for the summer!!!🌞  


Linen

Linen is one of the natural fibers I mentioned above, so this makes it a great choice for summer. In fact, it is 3 times stronger than cotton. This fabric may crease easily, but is ideal for the hot temperatures that are upon us. Often manufacturers blend linen with silk because the silk prevents the item from wrinkling and helps drape well over the body. Do you own any favorite linen clothing?

While back I had no idea that linen pieces could make such a difference during the summer until I tried it. And honestly, the 115 degree Vegas summers suddenly felt a lot more breathable and enjoyable. Plus, even if your linen pieces are a tight fit, they feel super soft and comfortable. Try wearing mostly linen over the summer! I'm sure you'll fall in love with this feeling. You'll see just how prestigious this fiber is...cotton will become a second best for you.
 


Cotton

Everyone's favorite and the most common fiber is cotton. Here we like having apparel that says 100% cotton on the tag. To me it literally feels like I have hit the jackpot when I spot that 100% because I know I will probably wear it more often then others to the point where it will actually get old from lots of wear. This doesn't happen to me often since I really take care of my clothing or I don't go out much! Hahaha. Still trying to decide which one is true. 

One thing is for sure, cotton summers are the best. You can do so many fun activities that require movement like hiking, cycling, running or playing your favorite sport. Speaking of sports, what's your favorite?
    


Rayon

Rayon is similar to cotton in many ways because it's got very similar qualities. That's a good thing especially in summer conditions. A fabric that is strong, absorbent, and drapes well. Three key points which can make any customer thrilled with their clothing haul. 

Often you'll see rayon added in a blend of cotton and polyester. That's how a breathable, shiny and durable garment is made. Plus, resilience is created so that if the item wrinkles, the fabric quickly bounces back. 

Yep, this makes me think that all these fibers are like magical potions...you can mix and match them to create something beautiful. We can surely appreciate the clothing we see and touch more now that we're familiar with this information. Knowledge is power!!!
     


Chambray

On the outside it looks like denim, but can be recognized for being lighter and woven a bit different from denim. Chambray has this light blue shade, which feels and looks light. Where as denim is heavy and sometimes a bit hard to move around in. This is why during the summer you can swap your denim pieces for this nicer and more breathable fabric.

First thing that pops in my head is a chambray tank with cute ruffle sleeves that I own. It feels so different and so great from wearing denim. With this top, I realized that there is a better option for us especially in the summer heat. And most importantly it works!

Give it a go! 💙
   


Silk

An absolute favorite of mine because of its elegance is clothing made out of silk. One silk dress, within seconds gives you a dressier appearance thanks to this mesmerizing shiny fabric. How many of you feel like Cinderella when wearing silk? Me too! 

One thing to remember when wearing silk: Be sure to spray your perfume before putting on the silk garment because otherwise the alcohol stains from the sprayed perfume will forever stay there. We don't want that! This fabric is delicate in many ways! 

Also, when taking care of your silk garments never put them in a washing machine, dryer or leave them in the sun. Instead, hand wash with warm water and afterwards place them on a towel to soak up the moisture and dry by themselves. Told you this fabric is SPECIAL! 😉

We've got the best summer fabrics down, so I think we're now officially READY for the summer! What do you say?

  3. Hey Radi,

    Thank you so much for this useful and detailed post! We tend to see a lot of "outfits for summer" on blogs and magazines, but we have to care about the fabrics and how breathable they are in order to survive.

    I like summer vibes but I definitely hate the heat, specially here due to the humidity, you end up the shower and you're already sweating. So picking up the perfect materials is crucial! I love linen (the only problem are the wrinkles in this material) but you feel really fresh with this one, also a good cotton.

    This is the 1st time I read about Rayon but I'll see if I find a piece for me in this material! The other one Silk is another great investment and the cool stuff is that it can used many seasons!

  14. Since here in Italy the summer is really hot and often even very humyd natural fibers are a priority!
    I especially love linen and cotton, even silk is just too heavy, good for the night but not for the day.
    Your photos are all soooo cool and stylish, I totally want your last outfit!!!

  17. Linen is wonderful. You did well to put it as a first choice. Cotton is another fantastic fabric to rely on in summer heat. Chambray is fantastic as well plus it has that easy going vibe. A lovely alternative to denim. Silk is perfect because it is both elegant and comfortable. Relying on silk in heat is the way to go, especially when one doesn't want to look too casual.

    You look fantastic in all of these outfits!

  18. You are so cool and gorgeous, Radi!! I haven't been able to tell the difference between chambray and denim, but your explanation is so clear!! Love linen with silk, too<3

  19. I only have a handful of linen pieces - most are linen blend as despite the heat here I hate the wrinkles, haha! I do have a lot of viscose and cotton in my wardrobe though - I agree you need breathable fabrics for summer!

    Hope you are having a great weekend :)

  39. In summer, the type of fabric is really very important - not to sweat and for the skin to breathe
    cotton, linen - I also try to choose clothes made of these materials in the summer
    to silk - whether artificial or real - I will not be convinced
    I can't handle this material 😂

  46. I have bought a few linen pieces and I'm very excited to wear them this summer. Cotton also always works well with me when it's hot. What makes the most difference though is the cut of my clothes - I like them loose and flowy (like flowy tops and dresses) during the summer to stay cool!

  59. Loved reading your textiles post! I feel most of the times people just ignore fabrics, specially nowadays that fast fashion has filled the world with polyester... I'm allergic to most manmade fibers, so it is a little difficult to find clothes sometimes, but I'm also glad I don't have room for polyester or acrylic in my closet. Silk is my favorite, and also the fiber I use for all my designs, and linen has the second position in my heart :)
    Have a great week!

  68. A classic item never goes out of style. In this particular case I am talking about the camel coat. Dressing thoughtlessly because you don't feel motivated to make an effort with your appearance, or because it causes you too much stress to decide what to wear, can have a negative impact on your relations with others. Also it stressful to add some jewelry to it such as diamond earrings. necklaces etc. This can lead to feelings of rejection and paranoia, which can result in anxiety and panic attacks.
