Now that the mercury level has climbed to well above 30°C, it’s time to talk about cool summer fabrics. From airy cottons and linens to light Rayons, here’s a guide to the most breathable fabrics you should wear this season, so you can chill out.

Cotton

Made from natural fibres, cotton as a fabric is very well suited to the Indian summer, because of its breathability –  cotton has a fairly loose weave, which allows air to circulate easily. It makes the heat more bearable. Like this article? Also read: 5 Watches For The Girl Who Likes Bling
