Building A Beautiful Summer Wardrobe Posted on May 7, 2019 under Blog, Cleaning Tips, Fashion. | no comments.
Summer is fast approaching, which means it’s the perfect time to start looking for some breezy new pieces for your summer wardrobe. For summertime, you want pieces that are not only fashionable but will keep you feeling cool on the hottest days.
Light colors are also an excellent choice because they will reflect the heat instead of absorbing it. Here are some must-have fabrics to add to your summer wardrobe and how to care for them.
Linen is a perfect fabric for summer because it’s very lightweight and can be dressed up or down, depending on the circumstances. Although it’s lightweight, linen fabric is quite durable and actually softens in texture over time, making it even more comfortable.
However, it does wrinkle easily, so it’s important to gently steam it or use a dry cleaner.
Cotton is very soft and is an excellent fabric to wear during the summer because it can keep you feeling comfy and dry. It is a more casual fabric that’s great for working out. When compared with other fabrics, cotton has a strong tendency to shrink, so it’s important to wash them in cold water and then let them air dry.
For more formal occasions, a light and breezy silk dress, blouse, or skirt will make a lovely impression. This fabric is lightweight but looks very luxurious for a date night or party. In many cases, it’s best to get silk dry cleaned, because it is such a delicate fabric.
The colors in silk garments can bleed very easily, so it’s always best to be cautious. However, if the tag does not say Dry Clean Only, you can gently hand wash your silk garments at home.
Lace is another fabric that is very popular for elegant summer dresses. It’s very chic and feminine and always manages to be simultaneously fashion-forward and timeless. Since lace is so delicate, it’s best to hand wash it. Putting lace in the washer could result in fraying or tearing.
For your summer wardrobe, keep it light — light fabrics and light colors. To keep your summer wardrobe looking good, bring your clothes to Champion Cleaners!
