Understanding terry cloth

Before adopting the terrycloth trend, it's important to understand this unique fabric. Towelling is generally made from cotton and is characterized by its soft, absorbent texture. It's known for its ability to dry quickly and feel comfortable against the skin. Because of its absorbent properties, terry is often used for towels and bath items. However, designers have recently begun to explore new ways of using this fabric in fashion, incorporating it into their summer collections.

Terrycloth clothing

Blue terry dress

Terrycloth garments can add a casual, comfortable touch to your wardrobe.

  • Terrycloth dresses, for example, are perfect for hot summer days. They're light, airy and offer a casual yet elegant look. Pair a terrycloth dress with minimalist sandals and a straw tote for a controlled summer outfit.
  • For a more sophisticated look, opt for a terrycloth skirt. It can be worn with a silk blouse to create a balance between casual and formal. Terry skirts are also perfect for adding a touch of texture and dimension to an otherwise simple outfit.
  • Terrycloth shorts and pants are also two interesting ways to make terrycloth your own. Wear them with a loose, flowing top or with a plain T-shirt and a pair of sandals for a fresh, springtime look.
  • On the other hand, combine a terry cloth top, tee-shirt or shirt, with denim shorts and a pair of Sneakers for a modern, summery look.
  • Finally, terrycloth is also available as a sweatshirt, ideal for cool summer evenings and adding a vintage touch.

Sponge accessories

Sponge accessories are a subtle way of embracing this trend without going too far. Sponge bags and clutches have become very popular recently, offering an interesting alternative to more traditional designs. Opt for a small terry clutch for a casual evening out, or a large tote bag for a city getaway. Sponge accessories can also include headbands, headbands or hats, adding a touch of style to your outfit.

In addition to towels and Other accessories , terrycloth is also available in one-piece and two-piece swimsuit versions, inviting you to the beach. It's the perfect opportunity to complete your swimwear collection and create a total terry look with a towel and wetsuit.

Sponge Jumpsuits

Another bold way to embrace this trend is with Jumpsuits . Whether in shorts or pants, a terry cloth jumpsuit offers both comfort and style, with a modern, casual look. Choose a jumpsuit with a slim fit for a flattering silhouette, and complete the look with white Sneakers and minimalist accessories.

Style tips

  • Opt for neutral or pastel colors if you wish to adopt terrycloth pieces. These colors will highlight the unique texture of this fabric.
  • Don't be afraid to combine terrycloth garments with other pieces in the same material to create interesting and original looks. Dare to combine terrycloth shorts with a tee-shirt in the same material!
  • Another option is to keep your look balanced by combining terrycloth pieces with more structured garments or, on the contrary, more airy fabrics.
  • Fitted or slightly loose cuts are preferred to highlight both the fabric and the silhouette.

Caring for terrycloth garments

When buying terrycloth garments, it's essential to know how to properly care for these special pieces to keep them in good condition. Most terrycloth garments can be machine-washed, but it's best to wash them in lukewarm water. Use a mild detergent. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals that could damage the texture of the sponge. For drying, we recommend air-drying or low-temperature drying, as excessive heat can reduce the softness and suppleness of the fabric. We also recommend ironing terrycloth garments at low temperatures, using a damp cloth to protect the delicate surface.

Terry offers a refreshing alternative to traditional fabrics, adding a touch of comfort and texture to your wardrobe. Whether through dresses, shorts, accessories or Jumpsuits, there are many ways to adopt this trend. Experiment with colors and cuts to find your own style. Dive into the terrycloth trend and let it envelop you in its comfort and elegance.
