Hot Temps, Cool Wardrobe: Weather the Heat Wave In Style

As August nears it’s end, we’re seeing Fall collections enter stores left and right! Even though we’re excited for the chillier weather to come, temperatures weaving in and out of high heat are a sore reminder that we’re still between seasons. With stores changing stock from shorts to sweaters, how are we supposed to navigate our lingering need for lighter layers?!
Luckily, there’s still a wealth of breezy pieces online that are perfect to combat a hot day – you just have to know what you’re looking for. Natural fibers like cotton and linens are key for breathability. Avoid stifling fabrics such as rayon, nylon, polyester and silk fibers! Here are five variations of summer fabrics to look for that we love:

Voile, a 100% cotton semi-sheer lightweight fabric that has wonderful drape. Because it is so lightweight, cotton voile is perfect for creating flowing dresses, blouses, tunics, and skirts that are perfect for warm weather. (via

Cotton gauze is 100% cotton. This lightweight and translucent fabric has a soft and crinkle texture with a loose knit weave, allowing for breath-ability and comfort. With its unstructured weave, cotton gauze allows for a slight vertical stretch and minimal horizontal give.  (via

Linen, made from the fibers of the flax plant, is known for being durable and breathable. Linen is conventionally used for warm weather apparel because of this! (via

Seersucker is the quintessential warm-weather fabric known for its crinkled texture and breezy quality. Seersucker’s texture creates a space between the skin and the fabric that helps improve heat dissipation and promote air circulation, making it perfect for summer dresses, suits, pants, and jackets.

Crinkled linen woven fabric with a gauzy crinkle texture is lightweight and breathable, perfect for a relaxed fit summer garment. (via
