Greetings from the UK! After weeks of counting down, it’s finally time to unplug, relax and unwind. It’s our first time flying with Aiden and thank goodness, everything went smoothly! Our little boy hadn’t slept the entire flight yet he behaved very well (eating and playing with his car toy kept him still). He didn’t cry at all. We’re so proud of him!
Anyway, as I write this post, it’s currently 26 degrees in the UK and it’s hot! For those who live in Europe, might have experienced the extreme heat two weeks ago (35-37 degrees). Although I like summer, it was unbearable at that time. And according to the weather forecast, temperatures will rise again. Now I know deciding what to wear in extreme heat might cause a little headache sometimes. But no worries, I’ve got you covered! Today I’ll be sharing with you 3 breathable fabrics which are ideal for summer, so you can still enjoy the hot weather. And trust me, it makes the world a difference!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, it’s no surprise that linen is my no. 1 favourite fabric for summer. Created from natural fibers, lightweight, breathable, absorbs the sweat, dries quickly. It’s made for summer, don’t you think?
Cotton has been my best friend for years. Whether it’s hot or cold, cotton is suitable for all seasons. It’s soft, allows heat to escape the body, breathable, comfortable to wear and anti-allergic, which is a plus for me as well.
You’re probably thinking: huh? Are you sure? Yes guys, viscose is also suitable for summer. I used to think polyester and viscose were in the same category. Made of synthetic fibres and therefore they both trap the heat. Boy I was wrong. Doing a little research does make wonders. Unlike polyester, viscose isn’t made of synthethic fibres, nor is it natural. It’s something in between. Anyway, to make a long story short: it doesn’t trap the heat. Viscose is lightweight, drapes well, feels soft, smooth and comfortable to wear. However, wear it with caution. And with caution I mean, if you want to prevent armpit sweating, try to find an item that is sleeveless or go for some items with loose sleeves. It can reduce tightness in the armpit which means less sweating. For lazy persons like me, go up a size. Saves you the headache and you’ll have a more comfortable fit too.
What fabrics do you like to wear for summer?
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Until next time,
