It’s officially hot out. While we can’t teach you how to stop perspiring all together, we can show you a few ways to stay cool and carefree this season. Start by swapping out garments made from bonded wool, silk and other non-breathable materials for pieces that are light, breezy and boast moisture-wicking properties. Here, 7 fabrics to slip into on a warm, summer day.

Chambray Straight-Leg Pants



Consider chambray a lighter, more breathable version of denim.

Anjali Dress


Ulla Johnson

Swap out a jersey maxi dress for one made from an airy, gauze material. Minimal cutouts create ventilation without showing a lot of skin.

That’s A Wrap Crop Top


Flynn Skye

A printed rayon piece is feather light (and far more forgiving when it comes to sweat marks).

Mado Seersucker Wrap Skirt



A thin seersucker skirt is a polished, work-appropriate alternative to your wool pencil skirt.

Signature Linen Shirt



Thanks to its wider weave, a linen button-up doesn't trap heat like a standard silk shirt.

Midas Shorts


Rachel Comey

Heading on a bike ride or long drive? Switch denim cutoffs for this printed, tailored board short.

Hyper Eyelet Flip Dress



For date night trade an embellished tank for an eyelet style. The virtually weightless fabric looks just as flirty.
