Share

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

$240

Current/Elliott

Consider chambray a lighter, more breathable version of denim.

Anjali Dress

$276

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

$145

Flynn Skye

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

Mado Seersucker Wrap Skirt

$365

Tibi

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

Signature Linen Shirt

$210

Equipment

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

Midas Shorts

$322

Rachel Comey

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

Hyper Eyelet Flip Dress

$480

Zimmermann

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