The Best Fabrics for Summer
Choosing the right fabrics is crucial for facing the summer with comfort and style. When it comest to what to wear in hot weather, we should mainly focus on natural fibers like cotton, linen, silk, and viscose, as they allow our skin to breathe and keep us cool even on the hottest days.
Light Colors are the Winning Choice
Let’s set aside dark colors and go for light and bright shades. I suggest daring with total white, perfect for enhancing our tan and giving us a fresh and elegant look.

Pay Attention to Underwear
Even in summer, we shouldn’t underestimate the importance of underwear. Let’s avoid unpleasant surprises peeking out of our outfit, such as bra straps or nude-colored tank tops.
If we want to be daring, we can even use the top part of a beautiful bikini as a top, but let’s do it with style!
The Right Amount of Tops and Tank Tops
While tops can be a good option for leisure time, it’s better to avoid them in work settings or in the city, as they may seem less elegant.
A cooler and alternative idea is to opt for flowy and soft blouses, perhaps with an ankle-length cut, perfect for facing hot summer days with style.
Long Pants and Long Sleeves? Yes, but with Style
We don’t necessarily have to give up long pants or long sleeves in summer. Just choose models in lightweight and flowing fabrics that allow the skin to breathe and keep us cool.
Cropped pants and cotton gauze blouses can be excellent alternatives.

Shorts in the City?
It’s up to us: many women love wearing shorts during the summer. Choose models that suit our style and figure.
Longer and less tight shorts can be the right choice for facing the summer with elegance.
Yes to Sandals and Flip-Flops, but with Taste
Sandals and flip-flops are summer staples, but it’s essential to choose appropriate styles for the occasion.
Let’s avoid beach rubber ones and go for sandals in lightweight fabrics that add a touch of lightness and freshness to our outfit.
Expand Volumes and Play with Transparencies
Voluminous and lightweight garments can add a touch of style and sophistication to our summer look. Experiment with fluid and wide lines, perhaps combining them with geometric transparencies, for an elegant and contemporary outfit.
No Plastic Materials
Plastic bags and shoes can be uncomfortable and unsuitable for a chic summer look. Let’s choose accessories in lightweight and natural fabrics that bring freshness and style to our outfit.
Personalize Your Style for the Summer Light
With summer comes a change in lighting, and as a result, we can experiment with colors and accessories in our outfit.
So, play with more extravagant garments and accessories to create unique and original looks.
