I generally associate summer styles with anything and everything that exudes relaxation. I love my Levi’s shorts and t-shirts in the summer, but there are times when I want to wear something a tad dressier, without overheating from the higher temperatures.
The first textile that comes to mind is Linen: preferably in white or cream, with that crisp lightness that we all love for those Grecian getaways that dominate our Instagram feeds. Although it is a little difficult to wash, linen is a great fabric for keeping the sun off your skin while remaining cool and looking serene.
Secondly, and one of my personal favorites, is Chambray: a light woven fabric that you can style the same way you would any of your favorite denim pieces. This is such a great option for summer because of its airy properties, and the light blue against white is everyone’s favorite summer combo.
Lastly, Chiffon. This is probably the most billowy of fabrics of the three and it looks stunning with a light breeze and a bit of sunshine. I would not recommend this fabric for a day at the beach since it easily sticks to wet skin, but it looks fantastic for a day in the city or for grabbing a rosé on a summer’s eve.
Let me know what some of your favorites are, and how you love to style them!
