With the summer heat scorching and the mercury level soaring, comfort is a serious concern for many. In this scenario, selecting the right fabric is a necessity. So, opt for the right clothing that makes you feel fresh.

Designers Prarena Grover and Dhruv Sehgal list some must haves fabrics and few avoidable ones.

Must-have fabrics

Cotton

Beyond any doubt, pick up that cotton dress or the cotton shirt from your wardrobe. It not only makes you look smart and elegant but also scores high on the comfort level.

Reason: During summer, it is a general tendency to sweat a lot and in such a situation, cotton is just the apt fabric that absorbs this sweat. This helps in giving the much required relief and cooling down your body temperature. In addition, cotton fabric gives you a relief if you are prone to any allergic reaction. Thus, cotton is just too apt for your sensitive skin.

Linen

The pastel-coloured linen wear is just so perfect for your summer days. Fret no more and choose the right linen wear for yourself.

Reason: Tired of threat of unnecessary sweat? Considering that linen is highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat, it helps in keeping your body free of moisture. So, the linen dress or blouse not just feels good to touch but also quickly removes your perspiration during the summer days.

Khadi

Saris to dress to shirts, khadi is the perfect wear for your summer evening.

Reason: Khadi is that handloom fabric which uses no chemicals in manufacturing. This skin-friendly handwoven, organic fabric is just too perfect for your summer days.

Sheer

This is the ideal fabric for humid days. It is the fall and the interesting cut of the fabric makes it a must-have in your summer days.

Reason: As a fabric usually meant for wedding gowns or floral costumes or stockings or lingerie, sheer does little in the way of warmth for the wearer. This is the reason why it is one of the favourite fabrics for summer wear.

Avoidable fabrics

Denim

Denim is a strict no for your summer days. It hugs your body too much and creates unnecessary suffocation in summer.

Synthetic wear

Never indulge in a mix fabric in summer. It creates discomfort and may, sometimes, cause skin infections too.
