Designers Bhumika & Jyoti Pick 7 Fabrics To Make Your Wardrobe Summer-Ready

7 Best Fabrics You Should Consider Wearing In Summer

1. Cotton The cotton fabric has been experimented with a lot of other yarns to make it more durable and affordable. It comes in varied thickness and weight. During Summer, the most preferred variety should be mal cotton as it has airy loops. This makes the fabric breathable and allows for air circulation. The best feature about this fabric is that even if you sweat in it, it dries faster.

2. Linen One of the most loved fabrics is linen. It is one of the top picks for Summer as it comes in different textures and weight. It’s made of natural fibre from plants which leaves you feeling cool. The texture makes it look rich, which gives it a formal look too.

3. Lawn Lawn is one of the most used fabrics in Summer. It’s soft, lightweight, and easy to handle. The fabric is a blend of cotton and linen. And just like them, it has airy pockets making it one of the best options for the season Care Tip: A good tip for lawn garments is to wash them in cold water. A machine wash and any other normal cleaning treatments work fine. But, avoid using the spin feature as it does tend to loosen up the fabric.

4. Rayon This man-made fabric is one of the best options for the Summer wear. It’s cool due to the content of wood pulp and other natural synthetics in it. The fabric doesn’t crease much either. Care Tip: Rayon garments should be turned inside out to secure the print and colour while washing. Use cold water for machine wash and run it on low spin. Avoid machine drying rayon garments or using high spin. This will extend their lifespan and wearability.

5. Hemp Hemp is one of the oldest and best fabrics available. It’s made from a variety of cannabis Sativa plants and is the easiest to cultivate. For centuries, hemp has provided fibre for multi-purpose use. It’s one of the more natural and environmentally-friendly fabrics that can be worn this season. The fabric is completely biodegradable, making it one of our top choices for sustainable fashion. Care Tip: It requires similar care to linen. You can use cold to warm water. Avoid hot water as hemp fabric shrinks in it.
