5 natural fabrics to style this summer

Summer is here with its unbearable heat, but it also brings in the little joys of relishing a popsicle, drinking ice-cold lemonades to quench our thirst and getting an afternoon nap in a chilled room. Its the season we value comfort over everything including our fashion choices and style.

While the silhouettes get wider and fits become oversized, the most important aspect of comfortable clothing in summer is the choice of fabrics. Fabrics that are lightweight, breathable materials that are easy to wear and style. In a country like India, where the heat can be intense, choosing the right fabric can make all the difference. Here are our top 5 summer fabrics to style this season

1. Cotton

A classic summer fabric, cotton is lightweight, breathable, and versatile. It's perfect for hot and humid weather and can be styled in numerous ways, from casual to formal wear. It is also easy to maintain and can withstand frequent washing without losing its shape or color. Check out our latest Spring-Summer collection with beautiful A-line dresses, short co-ords, and relaxed jumpsuits all in 100% cotton.

It also has a unique texture that adds character to any outfit. We explored this new-age natural fabric in our Zoey co-ords and Chloe dress, creating some of our favorite pieces.
