A Guide to the Most Suitable Materials for Hot Months.

The days with temperatures above 20 degrees are rapidly approaching. Let’s take a look at the fabrics to choose to stay cool without experiencing discomfort and to allow the body to breathe.

Here are the top 5 fabrics to wear for summer 2023


The king of summer fabrics is undoubtedly linen. Linen is one of the oldest fibers in the world and has been worn for centuries for valid reasons. The lightweight natural structure of linen allows air to freely circulate, enabling breathability without hindrance. Wearing linen during summer is undoubtedly the best choice, alongside 100% cotton, to remain well-ventilated throughout the day.


A must-have, Cotton. We all know it and appreciate its benefits. Cotton is the perfect fabric for all weather conditions, but it truly shines during summer. It can be worn in situations of both dry heat and high humidity. This natural fiber allows air to circulate freely within the fabric, making hot days more bearable.


Chambray is a fabric made from a blend of cotton and linen. With a high percentage of cotton, it possesses the refreshing characteristics mentioned above. Therefore, garments made from this material are welcome for any situation when the heat is felt.


Rayon is a fiber derived from cellulose. Unlike cotton, it is not 100% natural and doesn’t absorb moisture in the same way. It is also known as artificial silk or wood silk due to its texture. Although not as optimal as cotton, rayon still provides decent breathability and is recommended for hotter and drier days.

Additional Considerations

In addition to these fabrics, materials that combine cotton and linen can also be interesting. However, we recommend avoiding synthetic materials that trap moisture and do not allow the skin to breathe.

Cool Wool can also be a fabric worth considering for summer evenings. Despite the misconception that wool feels hot, it is actually an excellent temperature regulator, maintaining a stable and constant body temperature, both in summer and winter.
