While fashion is an ever-changing world that is all about trends and keeping up with the latest styles, it can also be about practicality. With summer here, it is imperative not only dress in your best seasonal designs, but to also choose fabrics that are perfect for the warmer months ahead. I’ve partnered with Cotton on this post to share with you how fabric choices can be just as important as the garment itself.
We all know that summer, while it is great, can also bring on some hot weather. I’m talking about the times when temperatures rise to their peak and the last thing you want to do is get dressed (I know I’m not the only one). What’s important to factor into your wardrobe decision-making is fabric. Breathable and soft fabrics such as cotton can be key to staying cool and looking fly. The first thing I do when I am looking at a garment is feel it. Why? Because I want to know how this is going to feel on my skin when wearing it. Take that one step further and look at the label (I bet you never thought to do that!). The label will tell you exactly what the garment is made of and will give you a better idea of how it will feel over time. I’m always interested in knowing how the garment will fit on me after prolonged wear. Is it going to start to stick to my body? Lose its shape? Well, cotton-rich fabrics always seem to suit me the best, allowing the garment to hug my curves but not cling to them. (Not to mention they are often economically priced).
Hence this look. I tapped into the blush pink trend with this pencil skirt and paired it with a light grey tank for subtle color-blocking. I wanted to style the look by adding on a matching embellished belt and rose gold high-heel sandals fit for a night out. This look is not only comfortable but also figure-flattering and chic.
Fashion that functions is always in style. That’s why so many things in your closet are made of cotton. It’s breathable, durable, comfortable, and washable. It’s high end and low maintenance. So check your labels for cotton, and feel as good as you look. Learn more: TheFabricOfOurLives.com
