We love summers for all the light and vibrant clothing but of course we hate the heat and pouring perspiration! Don’t we? So how can we beat the heat in style? Simple, choose the right fabric instead of blindly following some trends. Believe me; the right fabrics can make all the difference in the world.

Here in this blog, we will guide you about the three best breathable fabrics that will help you chill out this summer.

1. COTTON: When it comes to summer wear, one thing that every designer agrees with is ‘’cotton’’ – perfect for all climates, especially summers.


Features: –

  • Comfortable
  • Moisture control
  • Insulation
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Durable fabric

Tip: – If you are looking to go ethnic, opt for cotton salwar kameez sets and sarees with some embroidery work.

There are also some fusion fabrics like stretch cotton or cotton mixed with Lycra, which are very light and gives a nice fit. Give them a try this summer!

2. KHADI: From an age old method of hand-wovening fabric out of cotton, we got this amazing creation called ‘Khadi”. It falls well and becomes second skin after two washes.


Features: –

  • Light and airy
  • Eco-fabric
  • Versatile
  • Easy to maintain

Tip: – Khadi silk is a rich and elegant fabric and sarees in this fabric are a good option for summers. You can team it up with a cold-shoulder blouse or an intricately embroidered shirt blouse and you are good to go.

3. LINEN: A natural fibre made from flax plants, known for its cool feel and comfort is the perfect summer wear and comes in soothing and refreshing shades.

Features: –

  • Breathable
  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties

Tip: – If you want an ethnic look, then go for linen palazzo pants with kurti, saree and salwar kameez set which would give you complete comfort and keep you cool.


Others summer friendly fabrics include: Rayon, Chambray, Original Silk, Seersucker, Lace and Fresco.
